Man Parts: Ode to the Abdominal V
Zac Efron

Zac Efron

Something’s going on in the men’s fashion industry, where calling attention to exposed not-so-hot body parts is gaining traction. My first glimpse of random man flesh was in a NY Mag feature on mankles, encouraging guys to ‘throw out their socks.’  Then came a Huffington Post article featuring Jude Law and his he-vage, man breasts shown off by wearing a super deep V T-shirt.  Whatever happened to “the V” (you know, that sexy abdominal V) and why in God’s name isn’t anyone designing to show that off?

Gillette Fusion ProGlide Giveaway: For Him

Gillette-Fusion-ProGlide-GiveawayMy fiancé’s been in an exclusive relationship with his razor since he started shaving at 16. Well not the actual razor, but the brand – Gillette.  It’s because of his influence that I pay so much attention to men’s grooming and I’d be lying if I said I never stole his razor to test it against the latest for women.  In honor of Father’s Day, and Gillette’s latest campaign, FacetheWorldIRL, how does a Gillette Fusion ProGlide giveaway sound?  Great! Because I’m giving away a year’s supply of the razor and everything your man, or dad, needs to put his best face forward.

Brow Grooming: Help Your Man Out

As my fiancé, Joe and I get closer and closer to our wedding, I find myself booking more and more appointments: colorist, facialist, waxer, threader, manicurist… and it goes on!  Joe on the other hand?  He just has to show up!  Well, almost.  I will be plucking his brows.  This isn’t abnormal as I occasionally straddle him as he watches TV and go to town between his eyes. Here’s a piece I wrote for AskMen, “A Man’s Guide to Brow Grooming,” that you should read and help your man out.  The goal – to ensure a clean look that retains its natural, masculine appeal.

Jared Leto’s Hair Secrets

Jared Leto‘s Oscar hair was dirty.  As I was live tweeting the Oscars tonight (and swooning over him), it wasn’t to my surprise that a twitter account for @JaredLetosOmbre popped up.  Threatening to pull his hair up into a bun all night, I just got the scoop from his stylist, Chase Kusero, that a wet, side parted man bun was actually his original plan for the night.
