It’s a safe bet that, at some point in the future, you’re going to be buying her a gift. Just remember: there’s nothing quite as romantic as a well-made scent—in particular, Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue.
It’s a blend of sun-drenched florals, Sicilian mandarin and countless other subtleties, pulling together for a sensual, gift-ready fragrance. Note: doesn't come wrapped.
Seems we were way out ahead of the curve when we praised Julian Schnabel pajama clad magnificence back in January and handed him an unexpected MOTH. Some of you scoffed at the time, but several months later Schnabel's signature style is all the rage in menswear circles, according to the *Wall Street Journal*.
The paper reports that designers including Michael Bastian, Bottega Veneta, Dolce & Gabbana, Giorgio Armani and Prada are now all flogging various versions of *haute* sleepwear made to worn in public. (Schnabel's own, by the way, are made by his wife. So what does this all mean for the man on the street? Will we soon be able to go straight from bed to the office?
However, knowing how into Tom Ford Craig is—as we noted before, he refused to wear anything else for his *GQ* cover shoot, and went through 40+ Ford suits while filming the latest Bond flick, *Quantum of Solace*—we were somewhat taken aback to see him pictured in the mag wearing nothing but Dolce & Gabbana. Looks to us like someone at *VF* went out of their way to favor the Italian duo over the MOTH king—and it also looks like Tommy needs to buy a lot more ad space.

Among the many things Snoop Dogg is known—or perhaps we should say notorious—for, sartorial splendor isn't really numbered among them. But we had to hand the man a MOTH for the threads he sported at the 13th Annual Critics' Choice Awards in L.A. the other night. Eschewing the usual barfy bling of the rap star set, Snoop (pictured here with his wife Shante Broadus) pulled off an ensemble that was both eye-catching and classic at the same time.
