Decoding Marc Jacobs' Model's Hands

MARC JACOBS HANDS

I’ve ooh-ed and aww-ed many times in response to the Marc Jacobs Fall 2014 collection. There is plenty worth applauding in terms of the clothes, the beauty, and the eerie mannequin-like filled campaign. Upon recently purchasing a foot high stack of September issues, I had the pleasure of viewing these ads over and over again in glossy print.

5 Places You Could Wear Your Louis Vuitton Headdress

LV HEADDRESS

Either way, the colour of this year has billions of ideas to offer, and in the realm of beauty, here are a few of the best! read more…

WHO WORE IT BEST: Celebrity or Dog?

New spring and summer ad campaigns are starting to come out, guys! This means it’s time to put our judge’s glasses on decide whether or not fashion brands chose the right outfits, backdrops, hair, makeup, and most importantly: the right model. I don’t know about you, but I think there is a lack of dogs present in most campaigns. Since celebrities are taking over most model’s jobs, can we make a case for swapping celebrities for canines? read more…

Man Skirt Crushes Of The Moment

So it seems like the world was 100% ready to embrace the man bun, so it only makes sense to take it one step further: the man skirt.

Man skirts are signals of intelligence, confidence, and refined taste – so read on to see guys you’ll find in man skirts. read more…
