I have to say, I met the fantastic Danilo before Gwen Stefani did. He’s been a uptown/ downtown fixture and done hair for scores of big names including mutual pal, Kate Person of the B-52s. Gwen met Danilo, when she attended her first-ever fashion week show years ago. Recalls Stefani, who graces one of the covers of The Hollywood Reporter‘s Beauty Issue with her man;
“Danilo was doing the hair and that’s when I met him, and he was already a rock star. At that time, it was a big deal to spend money on a rock-star dresser. We flew him in from New York and we did the ‘Simple Kind of Life’ video and he did this really big pink afro. I was addicted to him ever since. He’s so in my life. I would have never dreamed of knowing someone like Danilo. One day in my reincarnation, I’m going to be you.”
The duo even share a similar style, as they appeared on THR’s cover shoot in matching and unplanned black-and-white ensembles.
“We do feel each other, we’re in sync with each other.”
Watch the video. You’ll want to go have cocktails with these two. For the full interview and other fixers to the stars in The Hollywood Reporter‘s Beauty Issue, go here.
