Michael Roberts - Illustrator
I'm getting over the shock that there wasn't a thread on him already. :p

Multitalented, english Michael Roberts is a living legend of international fashion. He has became known for working, through decades, as a journalist, editor, illustrator, photographer and colagiste for titles like The Sunday Times and Tatler. Since 1997, he's director of fashion of The New Yorker. Tina Brown actually referred to him as "the Jean Cocteau of the fashion world".

He has only done four portraits among his dozens of illustrations: Grace Coddington, Karl Lagerfeld, Lenny Niemeier (brazilian bikini designer and famous for her great parties) and Naomi Campbell. The last one was published in Vogue BR, in Naomi's special issue. I have it, but my scanner is broken. He doesn't talk about it, but rumour has it that even Madonna is on the waiting list for hers.

He has two books published, and both I'll own someday!

It would be so awesome to be there at the exhibition
Are those the originals on the walls? They're huge! And most of them cut out from paper...

You can also see a video with him at Fashion File:

This photo of him makes me laugh , hes sat front row at Gianfranco ferre wearing a brazilian football shirt with working at a top class magazine with great stylists you would think someone would teach him to dress
