We promised you earlier that the newest edition of Haute Living San Francisco would be available online this week, and now we are delivering on that promise.
As we mentioned, two years ago, we debuted our first Haute 100 list in our New York edition. We followed that up with a Los Angeles ranking, and then Miami. We launched Haute Living San Francisco in January 2009, and, since that time, we have been compiling our Haute 100 list for the Bay Area. These are our picks for the region’s most important entrepreneurs, thinkers, entertainers, creators, philanthropists, socialites, power couples, and, of course, billionaires. We will be highlighting members of our Haute 100 cover story each day on HauteLiving.com in the coming weeks.
We also took this opportunity to go more in depth with some of these leaders of the San Francisco community, like the NFL’s all-time leading receiver, Jerry Rice. He is putting his 15,000-square-foot home on Atherton Avenue on the market for $14.75 million and we spoke with him about the over-the-top features of the French chateau-style abode, some of his favorite rooms in the house, and what made this house a home for the Rice family throughout the past decade.
Luxury diamond cutter and jeweler to the stars, Michael Beaudry, also shared his story with us, detailing his start in the industry and what it’s been like since opening his flagship boutique just more than a year ago in the opulent Montage Beverly Hills.
Also in this issue is coverage of the luxury lifestyle, including some of the best parties taking place around the country—for which a trip on the private plane is in order—as well as a review from luxury watch editor Ariel Adams on four of the must-have watches for the season, and a wrap up of the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, that said goodbye to Bryant Park for the last time.
