The Nightmare Returns: The 47th Annual Golden Globe Awards 2017

Oh, my bowties. I had this terrible, horrible, God awful dream where I was in this strange room that consisted of a stage and circular tables with beautiful china and luxurious linens.  However, at each one of these gorgeous tables sat these frightfully, fugly people that were far too skinny with heads too big for their bodies and who obviously had no clue what sunlight was!  Even scarier still, was the hideous fashions they were sporting.  Only, nobody else thought their clothing was disgusting.  In fact, everyone thought their clothing was.. amazing!?! And worse yet, everyone seemed to be under the spell impression that these average lookin’ mofos were actually… dare I say it… beautiful.. and… wait for it… talented. I know! Try and stay with me bowties for things only go downhill from here.  I began to panic. Why can’t anyone see the disasters that I see?  What happened to all common sense?!? Out of the corner of my eye, I see a magazine.  I quickly grab it only to find page after page desperately trying to brainwash me into praising, fawning, and glorifying these same dreadful beings and heralding them as the second coming of the Messiah!

No, no, no! The walls, stage, and tables were closing in on me now. There was nowhere to run.  I needed relief.  I ran to the telly (yes, telly. Hey, its my dream and yes, there is a TV) only to find that every single channel was devoted to hours of rhetoric that was trying to convince me that these “actors” were genuinely talented and the most beautiful creatures on Earth who should be worshiped till no end.. like some sadistic cult!  The agony. The horror. The fear.  Well, needless to say, I thankfully awoke from my nightmare in a cold and unforgiving sweat.  I leaped out of bed and turned on the television.. and… There. It. Was.  It wasn’t just some horrible dream. Nope. It was a nightmare come to life. It was, the 2017 Golden Globe Awards!

Well my bowties, here we are again at the start of yet another awards season.  And as expected the 2017 Golden Globes kicked off this gruesome, gory, ultra-violent slugfest of a battle between award shows all vying to kick the living daylights out of the Academy Awards and take top prize as the premier  awards show with the best fashion.  That’s right.  Every year like clockwork, these award shows compete to be the HBIC of presenting  the best dressed group of overhyped and over dramatic people who insist on continually referring to themselves as “artists” and “thespians”.  Oh, and then there is some kind of statue thingy or prize of some sort… something that they get or whatever.  But… THAT IS ENTIRELY BESIDES THE POINT!  What really matters, what really speaks to people all across our great Earth are not these films with average looking people who can read words off some piece of paper and then remember what those words are and then repeat them verbatim (sometimes with actual emotion), but what these people are W-E-A-R-I-N-G!!!  Listen, good fashion will change your life. Trust.  However, year after year, our eyeballs are forced to gaze upon these sunshine shunning, mediocre, tinseltown minions who insist on talking… and talking… and talking.. and talking about God knows what.  Whew! As I have said before and will say again, when getting a statue thingy, all that needs to be accomplished is a walk to the stage for a quick (and I do mean real quick) photo opp. then off the stage you go in a matter of seconds.  That way, we can all see what’s really important (i.e. what clothes you have on) and better yet, we don’t have to hear anyone speak.  That’s a win-win for all of us!

Speaking of fashion, there was a lot of it, yes?  Um… albeit, not all entirely good. But, but.. during this nightmare come to life there were some glimpses of hope in the form of fashion that didn’t completely ruin the retinas in our eyeballs.  Yes, there were black tuxedos, midnight blue tuxedos, blue tuxedos, white dinner jackets, velvet dinner jackets, textured dinner jackets.. and tuxedos, and double-breasted jacket goodness.  And luckily for you, I have spent too much time scouring the all over to place just to bring them to you! So, as you can see, all was not lost.

Alright my bowties, clutch your pearls and take a deep. long breath cause we are going down.  Deep down into the darkest crevasses of your unconscious mind.  Places that even Freddy Krueger himself said a “hell to the no” to.  That’s right. The nightmare has returned. It’s the 47th Annual Golden Globe Awards, dare to scream!

Oh, and one more thing… for the 1 and 3/4 of you that actually read this blog and who may happen to be wondering where the hell I’ve been for like the last… well, year LOL,  I’ll tell you.  I’m a full-time graduate student now going for my 2nd mater’s degree and also working full-time which means… I have no life whatsoever and practically no time.  Last year pretty much almost killed me, but now I think I might have a schedule down where I can actually update this blog, more than once a year ha! Okay, okay. On to the men…

What do you think? Love my choices? Hate them? If you have a butthole then you have an opinion…and now would be a good time to share it! Comment below (but please be respectful).

And so it begins… The 2016 Golden Globes Best Dressed Men!

My, my, my… it’s definitely been quite the busy time in the fashion world the past couple of days.  Why you might ask?  Well, I’ll tell you, it’s because the single most important life-changing series of events commenced last week:  Awards Show Season!!!! Ah yes, the time has come.  After months and months of preparation and hard work, the battle of awards shows has finally arrived.  Evil, manipulative,  and deceitful  plans of nominees have been written down on paper, memorized, eaten and swallowed; campaign managers and top glam squad experts have been hauled in and are working countless hours to fool the general public by transforming ugly and overhyped actors into overhyped but seemingly beautiful actors! However,  and most importantly, fashion stylists have been praying to the Fashion Gods for miracles as they starve, stuff, cram, nip, tuck, tape and slap their clients into ridiculously expensive (and many times hideous) fashion ensembles for the all too important red carpet. And let me tell you bow ties, the red carpet is not for the fashion weak. No it is not! I will have you know that ENIRE Hollywood and music careers have been made and broken; have started and ended, with the red carpet. It’s ugly, competitive, but essential to conquer if one expects to have any sort of relevancy.

At the same time, the award shows themselves are in competition to have the honor as the single awards show with the BEST fashion. Last year, it was not pretty and physical violence did occur. But despite it all, the granddaddy of all award shows, The Oscars, proved to be no match for the other shows and slayed the competition.

So here we are bow ties, the stage has been set for an all out awards show battle and drama has already started. Last Wednesday, the People’s Choice Awards (PCA) officially kicked off the Awards show season…  with an absolutely  dismal showing. Oh…it was not good bow ties. So bad in fact that I decided to skip the review of that show all together and review the Golden Globes first (look for my review on the PCAs later)! I know. Anyway, that should come as no surprise as the PCAs have traditionally lacked the fashion competiveness to be grouped in the same league as the Golden Globes or SAG awards etc. The Golden Globes understands this concept and took full advantage. Although the PCAs kick off award show season, it is the Golden Globes which gives us our first “credible” awards show. Actors nominated for the Golden Globes are validated as true thespians that contribute positively to their craft and the overall art of acting… or something. It’s true. Really. In fact, the Golden Globes gives the public at large its first glimpse of A-list celebrities coming out of fashion hibernation and into the front of our eyeballs for the first time (that may NOT be such a great thing if they look a hot mess as our eyeballs will be forced look upon them for quite some time).

Yes bow ties, stock up on bottle water, replenish your batteries and make sure you have plenty of canned foods and warm blankets on hand, the epic battle of award show fashion has begun! It’s the 2016 Golden Globes Best Dressed Men! Enjoy 🙂

Mr. Will Smith – Whew! Where on Earth has Mr. Smith been?!? Although its hard to fathom due to all the  TMI articles we’ve had to endure going viral (thanks to Mrs. Smith) and their polarizing off-spring, spotting Mr. Smith in the flesh has been near impossible…until The Golden Globes. And Mr. Smith doesn’t disappoint. A+

Fashion Icon 2015: Mr. Nick Jonas

Well my bow ties, 2015 has come and gone in the flash of an eyeball blink and with it, all the fashion hits, misses, embarrassments, triumphs and eyeball rolling induced ensembles will fade away into oblivion, soon to be lost in our memories forever. But fear not my fellow bow ties, what better way to celebrate the new year of 2016 and move fashionably forward (for some of you) than by taking a look back at the past (yes, you read that sentence correctly). That’s right! The time has come to pay our fashion respects where fashion respects are due. Yep, it’s the 2015 Fashion Icon series… Happy New Year indeed 🙂

I must say, for a bow tie to receive a Fashion Icon award from the Gentlemen’s Style Academy is the highest of any fashion honor. This is something celebrities strive for their ENTIRE lives, it’s an award that makes the few select recipients in Hollywood (and elsewhere) more important than everyone else… and better looking. Lastly, it puts the “cred” in the oh so valuable “street cred”. So who is the first extremely blessed bow tie who should be forever grateful to have been bestowed this highly prestigious honor? Ex-boy band member Nick Jonas!!

There was an episode of Sex and the City where Samantha confidently declares to her man piece of the moment, “First the gays, now the girls!”  Well, Mr. Jonas has taken that mantra, flipped it and hasn’t looked back since.  Being the clever bow tie that he is, the youngest Jonas brother is working hard to prove he’s got versatility as an actor by taking on not only gritty dramatic roles but witty and deliciously trendy acting jobs that give a nice wink to Mr. Jonas’s carefully crafted hunky and sexually fluidish image. I see you Nicky. Smart.   Whew! Mr. Jonas has come a long way from his days as one of the Mouse ears biggest meal tickets… the Jonas Brothers. Since those days of yore, Mr. Jonas has managed to kick the “Jonas Brothers” (along with his actual brothers) to the curb, slip off his once immovable purity ring and carve out a pretty impressive solo music and acting career along the way. However, what’s more impressive is that whilst implementing his plan to drop his brothers (and virginity) like a hot potato, Mr. Jonas simultaneously looked absolutely AMAZING while doing so. Now that is something to be proud of. Nothing earns my accolades more than an impeccably dressed person implementing and succeeding in their evil and manipulative plans. To that I say well done Mr. Jonas. Well done.

Congrats to Mr. Nick Jonas,  the 1st  recipient of The Gentlemen’s Style Academy’s Fashion Icon 2015!

Fashion Faves: Fall 2015 Menswear – Dolce & Gabbana is Hauntingly Fashionable!

Well my bow ties, its October and that means autumn is in full swing.  As many of you are already aware, fall is my favorite time of the year!  I love the rich colors of cranberry and plums mixed with beautiful forest greens and decadent fiery reds and yellows.  The smell of apple cider and orange spice kissing the air.   Ahh… pure bliss.  It’s also no secret that many bow ties are preparing for their favorite holiday of all time:  Halloween!  This may come as a surprise to many of you, but I was never that much into Halloween as a wee bow tie.  I had a costume a couple of times as a child, but other than that, I much rather preferred to hand out candy to the trick-o-treaters than be one myself.  *sigh*  I don’t know.  Maybe it’s because I’m not a huge fan of candy (Hey! Pick your jaws up off the floor).  Yep, unless it was “Reese’s peanut butter cups” or “Twix”, I was not interested. Still, it could be because I’m not a fan of gory, bloody, stomach turning horror movies (although that is changing now that I’m becoming more sinister as  I grow older LOL).  I tend to prefer scary/spooky or eerie stories as opposed to gratuitous gore.  But, I must admit, I have always loved  what I’ve coined, “Pretty Halloween” décor.  You know, haunting décor with a luxurious and sophisticated style. Like a tablescape consisting of  a velvety black table cloth with a gorgeous  vintage black lace table runner (and matching placemats embellished with shiny black pearls).  Crushed velvet witch hats would serve as my napkin holders and cute little stuffed black cats in faux calf hair could be my place card holders. I’d finish off the look with a bouquet of pussy willows and Dracula Vampira ‘negra’ orchids. See. Pretty.

Anyway, instead of your standard ol’ Halloween costume party, I’ve always wanted to throw a “masquerade ball” where guests would wear gorgeous ball gowns and other sophisticated formal attire. You know, like “eerie couture” (if that’s a thing).  You bow ties may be scratching your head wondering what would that look like or what would a gentleman wear to such a thing? Well, no need to fret, Dolce & Gabbana has our answer in the form of their 2015 Fall Menswear collection!

Yes, Dolce & Gabbana’s menswear collection for fall is rich, luxurious, decadent… and a bit gaudy truth be told. But that is exactly why it works as a hauntingly chic and fashionable look for a masquerade ball. Okay, okay, It can also work for your everyday wear… in pieces. Let me explain. Reviewing each look in the collection as it is presented on the runway (as a whole ensemble) may cause your eyeballs to explode due to the overwhelming visual sensory overload that lays before you.  However, when articles of clothing are viewed as individual pieces… and even a step further – as accessories, then it’s a lot easier for your eyeballs (and those who have to look at you ) to digest.  For example, lets take a look at this black brocade three-piece suit below:

Dolce & Gabbana - 2015 Fal Menswear - Detailed Brocade Jacket01

Now, I will say that this suit is fabulously crafted. However, It may be a bit much for your average bow tie to wear  all of the three pieces… at once… in normal life…  However, change out the  brocade waistcoat and pants in favor of  the same pieces but in a simple black material (but keep the brocade blazer)… and BAM, we’ve got a trend we can actually wear… in public!  We can take this one step further and view these pieces as “accessories”. You know, like a bag or a belt. When we think of articles of clothing as accessories, we are building a whole look around that item of clothing to highlight it and give the outfit a bit of “punch” (make your overall look more attractive and stand out). In order to properly “highlight” these accessories, we pair them with clothing items that don’t compete for attention with the accessory… and the same holds true for this brocade jacket. It’s the “star” of the show, your wow piece. Make sense?

Well, now that that is out of the way, try looking at some of my favorite looks in this collection in terms of pieces that you can use to give your overall ensembles some punch.  Come to think of it, while browsing this collection, I could help but think of the Addams Family.  Hey now, hey now, no side eyes. The Addams Family, as I have always believed, have always had a very sophisticated, high fashion-y style to them.  Case in point, see the picture below:

theaddamsfamily1https://robsmovievault.wordpress.com/1991/11/22/the-addams-family/

Dolce and Gabbana did say that family was a big part of their inspiration for this collection… although the image of the Adams Family probably was NOT what they had in mind. My fashion faves for Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2015 Menswear, below. It’s spooky chic and eerily stylish! 🙂

Fall Fashion – Autumn 2015!

Well my bow ties, quite some time as passed since my last post, but what better time to stage a comeback than during my favorite part of the year, FALL!!! As I’m writing this post, the delicious scents of eucalyptus, bergamot, mahogany and cinnamon pumpkin are luxuriously caressing the air like silky chocolate engulfing a freshly made candy.  And you know what that means?!?!  B & B W (Bath & Body Works) had a candle sale and more importantly, fall fashion is here!  Yes, I’m well aware that the Fall 2015 Menswear presentations have long since been done and gone, but unfortunately, I’m none the wiser as gentlemen everywhere are still lookin’ like a hot stack of potatoes mess!

And to my own dismay, I don’t hold them completely responsible for their dire fashion situation.  What’s that you say?!?  I know.  But, looking over the Fall Menswear collections as a whole, there were some rather uh… extreme looks (if you will) that sashayed down the runway sending your average bow tie into complete and utter shock and confusion.  Let me preface by making it clear to the fashionably challenged bow tie (who may have made their first venture at understanding fashion by starting with the Fall 2015 Menswear shows) that no.  No.  NO. No YOU DO NOT HAVE TO GO TO WORK WITH ALL YOUR JUNK OUT ON FULL DISPLAY FOR THE ENTIRE OFFICE TO SEE!  I see you Rick Owens. What a relief.. for your junk and for my precious eyeballs. Whew, talk about a whole new meaning to the term “free ballin'”.  There were other such extreme looks, albeit none that required such blatant nudity mind you, but extreme nevertheless.  However, fear not, my bow ties.  This is why my main rule for approaching runway fashion is crucial to your fashion success: ALWAYS (AND I DO MEAN ALWAYS) VIEW RUNWAY LOOKS AS SEPERATES… NEVER AS A WHOLE ENSEMBLE! Yep. That’s it.

Let’s see.  From anorexic rock star chic to gaudy brocade and from motorcycle gang glamor to oversized accessories, trends were all over the place and unforgiving when it came to their extreme eccentric nature.  But all is not lost my fellow bow ties, a lot of these trends are in fact, very wearable. Honest! Well, that is if you can identify them through all the fashion clutter first.  Ha!  My fashion faves for Menswear 2015 are coming soon 😉
