Jimmy Carr in ‘Mancake’ at Elle Style Awards 2009

By Will Reid on February 11th, 2009

wenn2282700.jpgYesterday, I was on my way to Gatwick after a holiday in Brighton and the radio came on with Jimmy Carr talking about such things as ‘Guyliner’ and ‘Manscara.’ It turned out that Carr had himself been wearing these rather controversial at the Elle Style Awards on Monday night and he explained that “you can’t polish a turd but you can sprinkle glitter on it.”

At Brandish, we have already investigated this trend of man make-up with hilarious videos and opinion pieces. What do you think? Tell us on our Facebook wall.

Mighty Boosh at O2 Arena: Noel Fielding wows with his stage outfits

The Mighty Boosh have lost a little of their quirky homespun charm now that they’re living up to their Rock n’ Roll onstage personas, but they can still pack a venue with adoring fans.

Their gig at the O2 arena in London yesterday was a sellout, Noel Fielding had as many costume changes as Katy Perry at the MTV EMAs, including the ones pictured above but the highlight was probably a bizarre old lady outfit teamed with gold boots! I doubt that any of Fielding’s costumes would translate to real life, but as the comedian once said himself “you can never be unhappy in a poncho”, so maybe give it a go during the low points of the Christmas break?

Gabe and Max are my grooming heroes

By admin on December 19th, 2008


I would want nothing more for Christmas than to be gently woken up by these two guys handing me a steaming mug of tea as they pick out my outfit. I could happily trot off to the shower knowing they were planning my clothes, hairstyle and make up for the day. Check out this video where they showcase their styling genius, mm hairgel.

WISHLIST: A Closet Session with à la Fake Karl

By Will Reid on September 10th, 2008

Now this looks like my kind of party!

I feel like a horrible, disgusting sorry excuse for a fashion follower. Why am I bound by such emotional wounds? Why do I feel so sick-minded and wrong?

Answer: I want an invitation to Fake Karl’s closet. Yes, it’s true! I, Will Reid, couldn’t think of anything this week that could be desired more than a day of hanging upside down with Anna and Karl sipping our “respective drinks.”

And don’t even tell me you don’t want to too. There’s even a Yohji Yamamoto-shaped hole in the window!

Just For Fun: Human Tetris!

By Will Reid on July 14th, 2008

I found this video on Youtube and couldn’t resist putting it on Brandish. Two minutes of innocent people trying to fit through weirdly-shaped gaps in screens of foam, only to be thrown into a pool of water.

And for fashion’s sake, who could ignore those silver jumpsuits? Hilarious!

Watching Flight of the Conchords the other night I was struck by just how many comedy retro jumpers Bret McKenzie wears. From ’80s sweatshirts with Arctic wolves and pine trees to snowflake pattern woolly nan jumpers the Kiwi comedian has got his bases covered.

Russell’s Been Reading Brandish…

By Will Reid on April 17th, 2008

What can I say? We do try our best here on Brandish and every so often an iconic-well-dressed-mega-major-celeb pays attention. Russell Brand is one of my favourite modern personalities and his part in the new film “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” looks set to provide more embarrassingly-crude but absolutely hilarious viewing. Watch the trailer above and look out for Russell’s short-shorts beach/ Yoga look (mistaken my those not as dedicated to the shorts debate as simple sportswear!)
