Camp fashion icon Simon Doonan is "Creative Ambassador-at-Large" of Barneys. His husband is designer Jonathan Adler.
Born and raised in Reading, England, and after heading to London in search of "the beautiful people," Doonan became a window dresser on Carnaby Street, which led to a 1977 job at avant-garde fashion/lifestyle store Maxfield in Los Angeles. The next stop was New York and Barneys, where his artistic window displays made with unpredictable materials made him famous. Doonan has since changed the entire concept of window shopping and his Barneys window displays are as much a part of the New York holiday season as the Radio City Rockettes. These days, he may be just as famous for his work outside of Barneys. He's a columnist for the Observer and Slate, has written the books, had his memoir turned into a BBC show, and makes regular appearances on cable as a style expert.
When not making the ordinary look fabulous, he's in the company of his longtime partner, designer/ceramist/style maven Jonathan Adler. The pair married in California in 2008. [Image via Getty]
