HBO Announces Documentary on Fashion Icon Ralph Lauren

HBO announces its upcoming documentary on fashion icon Ralph Lauren, titled Very Ralph. The feature-length film, directed and produced by award-winning documentarian Susan Lacy, offers an in-depth look at the man behind one of the most successful brands in fashion history.

Lauren also touches on his childhood, his five-decade-long marriage, the early days of his brand, his response to criticism, his multi-page ad campaigns, and his pioneering vision.

Additionally, the documentary features interviews with those closest to Lauren, including his family and colleagues such as Anna Wintour, Karl Lagerfeld, André Leon Talley, Hillary Clinton, Robin Givhan, Jason Wu, Naomi Campbell, Martha Stewart, Calvin Klein, Tyson Beckford, Tina Brown, Diane von Furstenberg, Jessica Chastain, Vanessa Friedman, and Paul Goldberger.
