Men in RED: Really Exhilarating Dudes

Published July 31, 2014 by The Feminist

Unless you have been living under a rock for the past week, you will most definitely have noticed that the official trailer for the Fifty Shades of Grey film has been launched. (and when I say “noticed”, I of course mean “watched it at least twenty times”.) It should come to no surprise that I am looking forward to its release like people in the desert look forward to rain, or like paparazzi look forward to another Bieber incident. (For once, I am actually excited about Valentine’s Day, instead of wanting to hurl into a bucket!) To honour this marvelous trailer (and the always marvelous, (almost) always shirtless Jamie Dornan in it), I wanted to dedicate a post to the clothes which I think make a guy look sexy. Admittedly, Christian Grey – as his name suggests- sticks to an array of grays and dark hues in combination with charismatic and power-exuding suits. There is definitely nothing wrong with that. (Hell, it is darn sexy!) But if it were up to me, every guy should wear red.

From classic shades such as ruby and crimson to darker berry hues and shiny blood orange tones… these fiery colours will definitely lit up a man’s wardrobe! Not to mention what it will do to my fashion-beating, sexy-dude-loving heart!

Merely thinking about a world in which all men wore red, makes my ovaries tingle… Oh my…

So dudes, please translate some of this summer’s heat into your closet, and I am sure the warmth will simmer through all the way to next winter.

Whether you opt for a head-to-toe look or go for a more nuanced outfit with one statement red item, red will always ooze power, confidence and last but not least CLASS.

So take an example of the following designers and start embracing your inner Christian Grey.

All elegance and style at Versace…

How can you not be drawn to the guy in the red suit from D&G??

Apparently Dolce & Gabbana must have gotten  reactions similar to mine to their campaign , because this is what their summer collection for 2015 looks like…

Hallelujah! If summer 2015 looks like that, we are all in a for a wild ride! 😉

 

Bring on the Testosterone! Hotties of the Year 2013

Published December 17, 2013 by The Feminist

Let’s take a moment to appreciate the most delicious man candy 2013 had to offer:

5) The Very Sexy Singers

What do Bruno Mars, John Legend and Justin Timberlake have in common?

1)      They all made some great music this year

2)      All three of them have ridiculously powerful voices (swoon!)

3)      They are all heart-meltingly, knee-wobblingly gorgeous

Who doesn’t want to bang on Bruno’s chest, right?

Mr. Legend can have All Of Me, if he promises to give a concert in Belgium really soon.

Justin, you knock me TKO every time you move those hips!

4) Handsome Dwarfs vs. Magical Elves

It has only been a couple of days since I’ve seen the Hobbit 2, so you’ll have to forgive my lingering Hobbit fever. Having said that, I thought it was time to pay tribute to some of the yummy fantasy actors. Richard Armitage, Aidan Turner and of course Orlando Bloom are all so immensely handsome and attractive, but a lot of that handsomeness can be overlooked if they’re covered in fake hair, ridiculous clothes and coloured contacts. So here is how they look in real life. And I dare say they look pretty good.

Here is our dear friend Richie:

And Aidan:

(Gosh, I feel like giggling right now)

And of course Orlando!

How cute is this?

Admit it!

3) The Creative Cutie

Joseph Gordon Levitt is probably the most talented and versatile actor of the moment. Everything he does is unexpected and yet totally him. He’s good-looking, a great actor and not afraid to stand behind the camera himself.

And before I forget: he is hilarious!

2) Hot, Hotter, Jamie

Irish hottie, former model and now our very own Christian Grey. There was simply no way that Jamie Dornan wouldn’t be on this list.

He can rock a beard.

Or no beard.

He can rock clothes.

Or… euhm… no clothes

JAMIE DORAN  IS CHRISTIAN GREY IN 50 SHADES OF GREY MOVIE

And, hey, he’s actually a pretty great actor so I see absolutely no reason why you shouldn’t be hanging a large Jamie poster above your bed. (Yes, even if you’re over forty. )

1) Perfection in human form

Numero uno on my hotties list is none other than Idris Elba. I mean, come on! Look at him!

He can rock a suit

But let’s be honest, he could be wearing sweatpants or a garbage sack over his head and it would still look ridiculously hot.

idris2

Wouldn’t it be lovely to wake up in the morning and the first thing you see is this:

idris smile

There are even rumors that he could be our next James- shaken not stirred- Bond.

idris3

All I have to say to that is: Yes, please. (Something would be seriously wrong with humanity if he didn’t get the part)

 

So, I’m curious: who are your hotties of the year? 😉

Fifty shades of sunglasses

Published April 2, 2013 by The Feminist

See what I did there? 😉 Deft pun aside, this summer will be all – and when I say all, I do mean ALL- about shades! They provide an instant glam factor to any outfit and turns you into the perfect summer babe, even without a perfect summer tan.

This summer’s sunglass mantra is “the bolder the better”. Some designers’ sunglasses were so bold, I couldn’t quite figure out whether they were incredibly cool or incredibly ridiculous. As always, there’s a fine line between very vogue and very rogue.

But I do like to take risks, especially when it comes to fashion, and I truly believe there are some fashion daredevils among you readers as well! I could give you a list of all the new fabulous shades out there, but like I said, that would be a very long list. So instead of giving you a list of 50 sunglasses, ranging from pretty to pretty ludicrous, I’m giving you my ultimate top 3:

1) Egg-celent view

Round sunglasses aren’t just for Harry Potter freaks and people suffering from Easter melancholia, they are for every young and fashionable woman with an edge.

2) Catwoman

There is a catwoman waiting to purr inside all of us and these sunglasses are the perfect way to embrace your inner Halle Berry. They are classy but not safe. They are sexy but not slutty. They are simply perfect. (Especially those from Dior!) Miaow!

3) Pretty little flowers

This is by far my favorite shade-trend: Sunglasses decorated with flowers. Whether you opt for very graphical plastic flowers, like the ones from Prada, or frivolous tiny florets, like the shades from Anna Sui, one thing is certain: these flowers will not wither, just like your amazing sense of style! 😉
