This month the styling wizards at CondeNast gave Zac Efron a lavish Cinderella treatment for a magazine front cover. Getting a break from wearing Californian shorts and half beaten Converse All Star shoes is what Efron needed. Indeed does he looks revealingly handsome in the mid-night blue Dolce & Gabbana suit – and no, the pillars of society will collapse because I used to sacred “H” word to describe a fellow man. If female red carpet fanatics can droll over Gwyneth Paltrow’s slender legs exposed at the London premier of Iron Man movie last year, then I can sure put a small golden star on mans shoulder for a conveying outfit without coming across as one of his adolescent fans.
Creating a gradient of blue shades, the deep finishing of the suit with visible stitching and the chequered Thom Browne shirt melt the outfit into an exfoliating but sober appearance that stands out in a non-obtrusive manner. The black woollen tie from Ralph Lauren crates a character balance between power dressing and spring wear by projecting boardroom power giving the blue and white a bold accent. Once again it is proven that blue and white have a strong superiority over other colour combination in painting an animated but sensual portrayal of contemporary thinking man.
Audrey Hepburn is one of the most distinguished movie icons of all times. Naive and lost, Hepburn’s character Holly Golighty, in the movie “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” has detesting personality traits. But cute voice, glamorous pearls and petite body makes her sweeter than cinnamon swirl. The wide open eyes and charming demeanour are dreamy as a group of ballerinas moving swiftly across a mahogany floor stage. All the precious pearls worn on the ear lobes and around the neck are good for no inspiration in man’s world where pearls have yet to rise to the surface. A welcomed Audrey Hepburn signature is her sophisticated hats.
Kevin Federline, Ne-Yo and Justin Timberlake are all equally accountable for the hat mania that rippled across the western world in 2004-2005 but I was not fazed by their overpopulated trend of wearing a hat, west, white t-shirt, suit pants and sneakers. Dunhill has promised to restore classy hats from old world of luxury by making them available this fall – in 3-4 months that is. Add a touch of casualness to the appearance using a brooch or a flower and birds shall twit beautifully to your ears.
