Marks and Spencer take on Take That for Christmas ad

Check out the new Marks and Spencer Christmas advert which stars Take That in festive mode joking around with Twiggy, Lily Cole and the rest of the M&S crew.
My favourite part is Gary’s hilariously uneasy face ten seconds in, and there are pure LOLZ to be had when Ikkle Mark™ swaps present tags around, what a joker!

AskMen.com Explore the Sartorial Savvy of Gianni Agnelli

portrait-06.jpg

Gianni Agnelli is a man constantly sourced as style inspiration to fashionistos across the world. From his flair for fine tailoring to his edgy take on accessories, this man had a look that was extremely well-executed and so timeless that it is still being copied on the catwalks of today. Agnelli’s grandson, Lapo Elkann, continues to wear all of Agnelli’s bespoke suits and it is no coincidence that Elkann has, in recent years, been hailed as a modern style icon by the likes of US Vogue and Esquire.

The article is full of great style advice such as, “if you want to dress like an iconoclast, your first step is to dismiss all of the old rules of fashion — just like Gianni Agnelli did when he wore his wristwatch over his sleeve cuff.”

L’Uomo Vogue: AFRICA ISSUE – November 2008

66245_L3uomo_Vogue_122_575lo.jpg

After taking on the lack of model diversity, Franca Sozzani (the editor extraordinaire behind the Black Issue of Italian Vogue) now wants us to sit up and pay attention to a different cause- the immense need for aid in Africa.

As part of her campaign for fashion to stand up and act, Sozzani has made the latest issue of L’Uomo Vogue the ‘AFRICA ISSUE.’ This means that every feature or person included in the issue has some sort of relation to the need of Africa. It features Nelson Mandela, Naomi Campbell, Forest Whitaker and Bernard Henri-Levy (the philosopher and co-editor of the special issue.)

New York Magazine tells us that Sozzani “not want to make an aesthetic statement about Africa…unlike a recent issue of India’s Vogue magazine…this one won’t show peasants posing with $5,000 handbags.”

See after the jump for pictures of contributors including Nelson Mandela and Michelle Obama and e-mail isabelle@shinymedia.com to tell us what you think of the issue.
