Yul Brynner: A Photographic Journey

Victoria Brynner

Born daughter to famed actor Yul Brynner and Chilean beauty Doris Kleiner, Victoria Brynner immediately entered into the glamorous world of film, fashion, and photography. At the age of 15, Yul gave his daughter her first camera. This simple gift gave young Victoria an outlet to express her vision and sparked the beginning of an impactful career. From her breakout job as a photographer for Parisian news agency Gamma, to serving as U.S Editor for Italian magazines, Moda and King, Victoria has continuously established herself as a powerhouse. After relocating to Los Angeles in 1989, Brynner quickly became aware of the powerful relationship between advertising, consumers, and celebrity culture. With this knowledge in hand, she decided to focus on melding her photographic and editorial backgrounds.

In 1990, Brynner founded Stardust Visions to provide high-end print and commercial production services to clients including advertising agencies, magazines, and photographers. The company has since expanded to include celebrity endorsement brokering, matching Hollywood’s biggest stars with luxury brands, and a marketing division, which services entertainment, fashion, beauty and lifestyle clients.

Today, Brynner works with the world’s top fashion and commercial photographers, famous public figures, and coveted brands to create iconic images and campaigns that give new resonance to modern luxury. Brynner’s knowledge of the “personality” of a top-brand, coupled with her unique understanding of the creative process, allow her to play a critical role in the creation of successful advertising and marketing campaigns.

Victoria’s passion for photography and fashion effectively blurs the boundaries between advertising, celebrity, and production. Brynner’s impressive client list includes Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Vanity Fair, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Christian Dior, Hermés, Prada, Balenciaga, Coty USA, Lancôme, Lanvin, LVMH, and Sephora.

In 2008, Victoria was named one of the top “Women in Luxury” by Time Magazine in the Style & Design Issue.  Victoria resides in Los Angeles with her husband Gino Sullivan and their two young children, Eugene and Isabella.
