We Have a Winner: The Magnificent Bastard finishes up its March cocktail bracket with a mixture of bourbon, scotch, angostura and apple liqueur. It better be pretty damn good to justify that dash of scotch… [Magnificent Bastard]

All Plaid Out: The Baracuta jacket goes madras. We're predictably thrilled. [Limited Hype]

Gone to the Dogs: Apparently Filson will custom-make you a dog collar if you ask nicely enough. Definitely good to know. [Archival Clothing]

Celluloid Classic

  • Jared Paul Stern

The other day in St. Moritz we caught a rare glimpse of one of the silver screen's true classics—a certain Faye Dunaway. It can sometimes be painful to look upon the faded beauty of screen sirens in later life, but Ms. Dunaway has still got a certain something, a lingering spark of the woman who wowed us in Chinatown et al.; no mean feat at age 67.

The actress was spotted at an art gala thrown by Cartier in the Swiss resort the other night, where Claudia Cardinale, who, alas, has not aged as well, also put in appearance. Meanwhile, Dunaway may be returning to the big screen soon; she's rumored to have a starring role in twisted director Todd Solondz's upcoming flick *Life During Wartime*.

Kemptress: Isabeli Fontana

  • Jared Paul Stern


*Here at Kempt, we may fly the flag of the stylish man, but we can't help ourselves when it comes to a beautiful woman. We're sure you've noticed the healthy helping of enticing ladies on our site, but it's high time they had a corner of Kempt to call their own. Thus we give you the Kemptress—a glimpse into the lives of the women we love. After all, MOTH's get lonely...*

It's no easy task to fill the formidable stilettos of Claudia Cardinale, one of the most beautiful silver screen sirens of the Sixties. But we think Brazilian bombshell Isabeli Fontana has the chops.
