Iwanow, a Hester vendor since 2014, usually teaches a jewelry workshop on Saturdays, but she decided to put in an appearance at the fair this past weekend. Lucky her: “Suddenly I see this guy with this hat and it’s like, ‘Why do I know this guy?'”
As a designer of Eva Mendes’s jewelry line and an actress herself, Iwanow isn’t one to pester celebs. “I wanted to give him a piece or something but also if I would do that, that would mean everybody would recognize him.”
Still, she couldn’t resist discretely documenting the actor she considers a throwback to Newman and Redford. “I thought, I’m going to take a picture, just to send to my parents.”
Iwanow isn’t the only one at Hester who stole Leo’s soul. Michael Chau, the photographer behind @foodbabyny, tried to snap a photo but it was bombed by the actor’s mom.
