It’s awards season again, and the menswear group is getting ready for its turn.
We’re talking about the GQ/CFDA awards, an annual August bash that names the menswear designer of the year. The list of nominees just landed in our inbox and, while it’s a little short on Toms, we’re excited to see all the names in one place.
Through Thick and Thin: Personally, we've always preferred Christina Ricci in her more well-rounded, Buffalo66 days. Not that we've got a problem with the carb-free model here. [BlackBook]
Some Like it Very, Very Hot: Just like Paris Hilton, Marilyn Monroe filmed a sex tape before she became a tragic victim of her own fame. Unlike Hilton, Monroe's oral exam may never make it to your desktop. [NYPost]
Labor Party: A charming, lil' British-TV presenter is set to star in a reality show based in a faux London sweatshop. This is a good thing, right? [Female First UK]
Chat Stew: The dapper king of our TiVo, Joel McHale, sits down to discuss his J. Lindberg jackets, Air Jordans and, wouldn't you know it, Tyra. [Sign on San Diego]
Slim Jims:Men's Vogue collects the best slim-cut suits of the season so we don't have to. [Men's Vogue]
American Public: Sticky, icky Dov Charney lets the Wall Street Journal into his factory, his office and his infamous bedroom where he takes cloyingly erotic photos of the once-respected broadsheet in a Lycra catsuit. [Radar]
You were still playing Contra when Donna Karen was a growing concern. Retired and now renewed, Karen is still a considerable name and her DKNY (see above) remains a good source for office-proof, stylish essentials. The black cardigan, slate blazer and raincoat are subtly sly and everything else manages to stay within the lines of trend and classic elegance without attracting too much attention. For those of you who tread lightly and carry big sticks. [Men.Style]
