Handsomest Men in the World ~ Male Models

We have something new this week. I have noticed that the male models are getting more and more mature looking. Evidently the aging of America is showing up in garment sales. Atleast men don't seem to want to look like skinny teenagers anymore. Here's a whole batch for you to peruse. Definitely more mature, no?

Fashion Day ~ MaxMara, Dsquared & Bulgari

It's fashion day and today is primarily for the ladies. I have been very taken with MaxMara's looks for Autumn - all in shades of light browns. I think these all look really grown up and not all that mix and match stuff that is supposed to be fashion and makes you look like you were trapped in a thrift store.

1. Four looks from MaxMara:

2. Recently Dsquared is only using black models and I think this looks great. Great leather stuff and these models make impact. Very smart.

3. Poor idea of the week. Carla Bruni is back modeling for Bulgari jewels. She is the wife of the former Prime Minister of France. Really Carla. You represent France to the Queen of England and you're back in front of the camera?

Handsomest Man in the World ~ Express Model

Why do I think this very handsome guy modeling for express must be very tall? What a great face. What a great mouth. This is your handsomest man in the world this week. Great hair, too. And wearing a great coat. This is not an express P.R. boost, but this is a very good look for you.

Need help with weight loss...

Dear David,
I am so fat. Help!

Dear Ballooning,
It's no fun, that's for sure. I don't want to explore any of the psychological reasons. I think you should concentrate on how you feel when  you eat. Sore the second you're not hungry. I know all about the starving in China and Africa. You can't help that in Indianapolis. Leave that milkshake half done. Take one bit of your pie and push it away. Keep a bag of small hard candies at home. When you MUST eat something sweet, take one and that feeling will go away. And kind of get used to feeling hungry. Drink more water. Just remember what ten pounds of hamburger looks like on your body. Not a good look. And if you're home alone, eat breakfast for dinner. I want you to like yourself. Don't bury your sexual parts under fat where nobody can find them!

Do you think men vary sexually from country to country?

Dear David,
Do you think men vary sexually from country to country? I ask you, because if anyone ought to know it would be you. 
~Curious Fellow

Dear Curious Fellow,
I don't know whether that comment is an insult or not. I am going to take it as a compliment. Definitely "YES". American men are not very experimental but what to do the same thing over and over and then they get brad. French men see it scientifically and are removed emotionally. France, the only country that has the "baize de dante" or "the health f$%k." It's for you, not the other person. 

In South America I find they are the least repressed and the do it because they must! 

In Morrocco they walk through the streets looking like they will go crazy if they don't have sex in the next half hour. With anyone. That's a little scary. Quite clearly, I prefer South America.

    Handsomest Man in the World - James Franco

    You are going to think my Handsomest Man in the World choice this week is really strange, but the new photos of James Franco for "Made to Measure", the new Gucci's men's fragrance are very haunting. It's his eyes.


    Dear David,
    As you get older would you say you are becoming more "spiritual"?
    ~Getting Older II

    Dear Getting Older II,

    I don't know if you can call it "spiritual" but I am more and more aware that we are on this ball whirling around through space that is quite beautiful and that we should really enjoy being here and experience our life as completely as possible. This means not caring what the neighbors think and not being as competitive with others. Only with yourself, to be as terrific as you can be doing the things you really want to do. Really, don't worry what others think of you. Only about what you think of them!

    Rejecting the label "gay"

    Dear Know-it-all-David, 
    Do you think really fat people just can't help it or is there more to it than that? 

    Dear Wanda,
    I just read a magazine interview with the Vogue editor Andre Leon Talley, who was once very sexily trim and now has ballooned to something near 400 pounds, always draped in couture kimonos the size of circus tent. In his interview he says he rejects the label "gay" but also he says he has "had very gay experiences". He was brought up by a strict and religious grandmother and my take is that he has guilt. I think many overweight people bury their sexual organs beneath fat so they can barely find them and no one else can either. I think it is a sexy barrier, all that fat. However, it is their right to do so. Tally is quoted as saying, "I can create this magic, so why don't I have a lover?" My response is, "You don't really want one, and how could he find you under all those kimonos and that tonnage?"

    I have a friend who has not had sex in a very long time...

    Dear David, 
    I have a friend who has not had sex in a very long time because he is afraid of catching some disease. My take is that he is not really living because he is afraid of dying. I'm sure you have thoughts about this. I should add, he lives with his mother. 
    ~Being Nosy

    Dear Being Nosy, 
    You aren't really. I think your point is something to think about. Yes if you live with your mother and your sex life is haphazard encounters with someone met online - you might do well to think it wasn't worth it if you become ill. On the other hand, if you are seeking a love relationship I think you must take some chances, protected as thoroughly as you can. I don't just think experience and love is important, I think it is essential to having lived your life!

    FALLing for Fashion!

    Fashion Fashion Fashion! It's kind of extremes today. A really excellent summer jacket and then directions for Fall. Here goes:

    1. This funky light blue striped jacket is from Undergear. I ordered it and won't get it until September so it must have been in much demand. Quite girly but if worn with navy blue T-shirt and pants, or white top and bottom could look really new. And comfortable.

    2. Here's a whole new selection of fuzzy coats and jackets. This seems to be really big. Very girly in fact, but I but you're going to see it a lot on non-girly men this winter.

    3.  Lastly, the sweater with the big anchor on it. You never see anything really new in sweaters. I liked this a lot.
