Designers in Front of the Camera

If there’s one thing Project Runway has taught us, it’s that designers aren’t always as attractive as their creations (see: Santino, season 2). But occasionally there comes a designer that could probably walk in their own shows and everyone would just mistake him or her for another model.

And so we have Marc Jacobs, the quiet but gorgeous designer that makes amazing clothing and has an equally as amazing face. For his new fragrance campaign, he’s  oiled up and, um, out there for all to see. But he’s not the first designer to get in on the modeling action. The equally delicious (ugh, I wish I was a gay man) Tom Ford also starred in his own fragrance campaign. Oh my bless-ed eyes!

Then there’s been Kimora Lee Simmons, etc, but do we really need pictures of them? Nah. There’s a difference between the higher art of Jacobs and Ford, and the fame-whoring of Kimora. The higher designers could sell their products without us ever seeing their faces,  but the Kimoras of the world couldn’t sell anything without their faces being plastered all over their products and ads. Here’s to seeing more of Tom Ford and Marc Jacobs’ faces… and whatever else we need to see of theirs in their ads :-).

Yeah, that’s right… a SMILEY FACE. I went there.

Best Website of All Time…Formal Edition

If you’ve ever gone to college, you know that the end of every semester is merely an excuse for different student groups to put together formals. And if you’ve entered the real world, then you’ll know that formal occasions may come every weekend (oh hey there waitress actress) or once every blue moon (are you still reading, IT tech man?).

Anyway, regardless of how often you have to rock a tux or look dashing in a dress, there’s a site that can help you out. Edressme.com offers red-carpet looks for way less thanhe price a real dress would cost (but since celebs get them for  free – I guess they’re actually more…). While cheap knockoffs aren’t really my thing – I do get the appeal. And, if you dress it up with some big time glam bling and $$$ shoes, you’ll look just like you could be accepting an award…until the bouncer finds your flask and rejects your fake ID. No matter how classy you may look, remember that you’re still not at the Oscars…yet.
