From Lance Armstrong pedaling for Oakley to Larry Sands peddling luxury with Chrome Hearts, this was a year of bright lights and… 20/20’s first cover ever (or since!) without eyewear via Stella McCartney. Best-selling author Andrew Gross and a Revo “See Cruise” with Alexandra Cousteau. Jil Sander debuts with Marchon, and I will never tell the real secret of THAT interview.
