Handsomest Man in the World & Men & Women's Fashion Advice
This week's Handsomest Man in the World is Stefan Pinto, who is on the cover of my book "Escort." Stefan is not nor ever has been an escort but is an actor and health guru, currently residing in Hollywood. He went from an overweight teenager to glorious guy and has a website telling all about it here. What I like best about Stefan is that he makes me laugh, which is very rare for a handsome man.
Fashion directions today:
I am crazy about the current J. Crew catalog:
Jenna Lyons, the Creative Director of J. Crew is on top of it. Check out this video of a typical day for J. Crew's executive creative director Jenna Lyons.
They have a page on new watches and bracelets for men that they are doing with Timex:
And the children's clothes, particularly for the little boys are terrific. Those little men in their little jackets looks great:
And the big men, too:
I think my direction for everybody right now is the jacket. I think it makes your body look good and there is something quite grown-up about it. I think American men are finally ready to dress as though they are no longer in high school, and the jacket does it.
I love women in the long tight pants, and a slim-fitting jacket. Like this Vogue.com ad:
One in a sober tone, the other in something very bright. And I think if you are going to wear high heels, this where to do it. Dressed like this in the evening in heels, when you don't have to do a lot of walking, you can look very authoritative, girls. You can tell men what to do, if you know what I mean and I think you do.
You're invited to a book party for my new novel "Love in the Loire" at the Rizzoli bookstore in New York at 31 W. 57th St. between 5th and 6th Avenues. Book Party starts at 5:30 pm, Thursday June 2, 2011. If you are in or about New York, please come.
