It doesn't get more legendary than having been the rock groupie to have influenced Kate Hudson’s character Penny Lane in Cameron Crowe’s "Almost Famous." Though considering Pamela Des Barre's bestseller “I’m With The Band” documents her backstage flings with Mick Jagger, Jimmy Paige, Keith Moon and more - it makes more than perfect sense. A onetime nanny to Frank Zappa’s kids, Pamela has written numerous books and even launched a clothing line called, what else, Groupie Couture. Now a rockstar in her own right, these days, “I’m with Pamela" is only the backstage pass you'll need.

Movie magic doesn't just happen you know. It takes a village. And more importantly, someone to run that village, aka crew. For those lucky enough to have worked with Laura Bickford - producer of such films as Traffic, Duplicity, and Beasts of No Nation - they've learned hard work pays off.
Julie Hermelin. Collector of jobs. She's an Internet Entrepreneur, Co-Founder of Momstamp, Producer, Director, Co-Founder of The XX Fund, and Chief Instigator of Glamp Camp. Not to mention she sits on the board of Reboot, the advisory council of Liberty Hill, AND (because none of the previously mentioned could clearly be enough), is a Wexner Heritage Fellow. Long list yeah? Take a deep breath, and re-consider your successes.
Kate Driver just looks like someone you'd blindly trust to completely redesign your home, doesn't she? We mean, she's chic as, so duh we'd live in the room version of her.
