Roll Out the Red Carpet for 2007@20/20

Celebrities, designers and star athletes dominate virtually half of the covers including face time for Ralph Lauren, Coach’s Reed Krakoff, Betsy Johnson, Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs, Sigrid Olsen and Niki Gudex. Memorable debuts as well from Cole Haan, Banana Republic, Ted Baker and with the September cover titled “Eyewear Faces All,” Lafont begins the new definition of luxury as it attributes the growing swell of eyewear heritage collections 20/20 dubs as Our Eyewear.
