For a feature in its March 2015 issue with Rihanna on the cover, fashion glossy Harper’s Bazaar US puts the spotlight on floral designer Eric Buterbaugh. He is known as one of Hollywood’s most in-demand florists and poses with his three friends and clients—Gwyneth Paltrow, Nicole Richie and Demi Moore.
Talking about her first experience with Buterbaugh, Gwyneth says, “It was white roses, but roses on roses on roses—basically a plate of roses balanced on this tiny vase that defied the laws of balance and physics,” she says. “I just thought: ‘This is so above anything I’ve ever seen. It’s art.’ Eric is very economical in terms of the beauty he creates with his flowers,” she continues. “It can be over-the-top, but just the perfect amount. And he’s like that as a person too.”
