On the Street with goop’s Artwork Director

0

In partnership with our friends at Porsche

Renee Rupcich is art director at goop. When she’s not on set bringing photo shoots to life or zooming us in from her sun-drenched Beverly Hills apartment, you can spot her in the wild and get inspiration every step of the way.

In one weird year of standing still, there was one big silver lining for me: the ability to jump in the car and just walk. There is something about being out and about – windows down, wind hums, sun dancing on the horizon – that opens up a universe of possibilities. It is my ultimate source of energy that charges my batteries when I drive empty. And what could be nicer than testing the new electric Porsche Taycan on the road during a weekend in the desert? It’s a smooth ride that is so, so smooth.

DAY ONE

DESERT JOURNEY

First stop: the impressive outdoor installation Never Forget for Desert X by artist Nicholas Galanin – a commentary on Hollywood’s solidification of the desert and its lasting effect on the indigenous communities who first inhabited the area.

COME FLY WITH ME

Under palm trees and street signs named after the stars of past decades, I make a detour to see what Frank Sinatra’s desert escape from Hollywood was in the late 40s and early 50s: Twin Palms (and his legendary piano-shaped pool ).

GOLDEN HOUR

While the sun is sinking under the mountains, I only have one thing in mind: to take the cable car straight up. So I lace up my sneakers, grab my water bottle, and head to San Jacinto Peak for a front row seat on the most beautiful pastel show in town. It’s crazy what a change of scenery can do to change perspective. Pure magic.

DAY TWO

SUN HUNTING

Only my skin is currently drier than the heat. After going in the pool, I basically bathe in GOOPGENES body butter and pat a little GOOPGLOW luminizer around my collarbones and shoulders to add some shine to my shine.

GEARS

After charging the Taycan in the hotel, I’m ready to go back to reality. But not without stopping to see the installation The Passenger by artist Eduardo Sarabia.

A few taps of the finger on the futuristic screen of the Taycan and my mobile phone is connected, my playlist is turned up and I move at full throttle. Electric doesn’t even begin to describe this liberating feeling on the open road.

HOME STRETCH

As I pull into the PCH and head towards Malibu (with one load!) My favorite song comes on the radio. As I sing along, I look to the right and notice a mother and her teenage son driving next to me, smiling and showing me their thumbs up. I smile back, laugh to myself and take off. I think what they say is true: sometimes the path is really as important as the destination.
