When I first became editor in chief of Cosmopolitan, I scouted the models, photographers, and writers of the moment. Francesco turned out to be the man who had the magic for creating a Cosmo cover. I wanted a girl to look sexy, gorgeous, and approachable. Once I saw his work, we rarely used anyone else again. He was a superb photographer with the best lighting in the world, and he was like Cecil B. DeMille on the set. He got the best out of the girls by encouraging them. He did my portrait a few times, and he would say things like ”Hey, honey, I think you got it!” (Scavullo died of heart failure in New York City.)
