Esquire magazine’s best dressed list has been gathering attention lately – mostly for not featuring David Beckham. Hopefully, other magazines will follow suit and realise that they’re not contractually obliged to include Mr Beckham on the list. People who did make the list include Jeremy Paxman, Barack Obama, Lapo Elkann, Fabio Capello, Christian Bale and Lupe Fiasco.

The Westminster show is always a treat and with people like GQ ed Dylan Jones in the audience you know the calibre is going to be high. Sarah Senouci’s collection consisted of impeccably-finished English summer attire gently infused with retro Americana. Romantic foppishness combined with dusty farmboy to give Stand By Me meets Brideshead Revisited.

I got really excited when I saw this press release as I thought it was about David Jason stripping off for charity. Veering between excited and repulsed I was mostly relieved when I saw it was actually England goalie David James.

At this year’s CFDA awards, Thom Browne, Michael Bastian and Tom Ford all starred in a spoof of HBO series In Treatment. As someone who’d never heard of that show until I just googled it, the spoof kind of went over my head. Ford’s a believable actor in this though, if the whole fashion thing wasn’t going so well, he probably could consider acting as a career. See for yourself after the jump.

With the hippin’ and the hoppin’ and the bippin’ and the boppin’… I love Bill Cosby, even in his awful film Ghost Dad he is endearing. So why doesn’t anyone want his jumpers?

There are times I love gorging over celebrity looks; Cannes glamour, Oscar glory, MTV glitz. Then there are times when rather rubbish boybands return with a receding hairline and a group of barely-dressed female dancers, thinking they can win us all over with a rendition of an old classic and a bit of David Brent-dancing. Of course to pretend that BoyZone did not contribute to the Reid family soundrack would be a lie as Ronan’s “When You Say Nothing At All” has not only made my Mum cry but got my brother 16,414 Youtube hits. (I have, myself, never been influenced by that Irish twang and chorus of fiddles and flutes.)
