Midas Man

The tale of how Fred Hayman brought homegrown glamour to the famed Rodeo Drive
by BOOTH MOORE

BOOK: BRIAN LEATART / PORTRAIT: COURTESY OF FRED HAYMAN ARCHIVES

The dashing man who helped transform Rodeo Drive into a global retail destination with his Giorgio Beverly Hills—we all happily recall the boutique’s distinctive yellow-and-white striped awnings and eponymous perfume—has at last told his story. Out this month is Fred Hayman, the Extraordinary Difference: The Story of Rodeo Drive, Hollywood Glamour and the Showman Who Sold It All ($65, A+R Projects), by style maven Rose Apodaca. The owner of pop-culture emporium A+R—and former editor of the L.A. Times “Image” section—crafts a substantial book that’s both lavishly illustrated and well researched. And as it depicts the blossoming of Beverly Hills, there’s all the delicious name-dropping you’d expect.
