Brits 2008 Fashion: Arctic Monkeys

By Will Reid on February 25th, 2008

Image5This year’s Brit Awards saw a pretty varied spectrum of red carpet-dressing. The men either went for smart-casual monochrome (Take That) with accessories such as elaborate ties and glittery belts or glorious brights (look out for my other post on Mark Ronson and Mika.) But one group of well-dressed individuals stood out.

The Arctic Monkeys proved to be the attention-grabbing act of the night, whether it included their drunken thank-you speech (or slur,) winning the Best Group of the Year or their spectacular look. The band went for country costumes with full-on tweed and breeches. Admittedly you couldn’t wear it all the time but you have to admit that they do look rather enviously carefree and offensively upper class to the point of clay-pigeon cool.  This year’s Brits were a fabulous reminder of why  the world loves the UK. Some may have found the awards to be an alcohol-fuelled waste of time but at least we saw some genuine smiles and bright-eyes (more standard surprise than surgeon’s snip.) Deep breath- and onto the Oscars.

DETAILS March 2008-Hayden Christensen

By Will Reid on February 21st, 2008

HaydenchristensendetailsThe latest issue of Details proves that this is a magazine for the fresh faces and rising stars. From Daniel Radcliffe in leather to Jonathan Rhys Meyers in too-tight jersey, we now have another young star who’s set to be a success. And after what feels like forever, we have a subtle cover which just oozes cool (did anyone else find Radcliffe’s ‘tache slightly scary?) Mr Christensen sails dangerously close to the James Dean stereotype but has just enough personality to pull it of without leaving the reader feeling as if they should watch the publicised film/line/fragrance out of pity. The photo-spread is dark, unshaven and unapologetic. Hayden appears determined not to fall into the pretty-boy category and this allows you to think he’s cool without feeling guilty. Inside, we have articles on Somalian gangs, Hollywood smiles, a How-to on Divorce and an interesting looking article on that age-old question- Does size matter? Prepare yourselves for this, it look set to be big.

See after the jump for more of Hayden’s shoot.
