Moore backs Skyfall’s Craig, not Connery, as the best James Bond ever

Connery, Lazenby, Moore, Dalton, Brosnan, Craig; six James Bonds, but which is best? At least three of them are too old to fist-fight for the title, so who do we turn to for a definitive answer? Why, Bond himself, that’s who! Roger Moore, the third James Bond, has once again given Daniel Craig his blessing, calling the Skyfall star the …

Forget Adele and Skyfall, these are the best James Bond songs EVER

Gun sights darting from each edge of the screen. The iconic theme kicks in. A man in a tuxedo walks into view, turns to the camera. BANG! Fade to red. BOND IS BACK! We’re just weeks away from the release of Skyfall, Daniel Craig’s third outing as 007, and the 23rd adventure for the world’s most famous spy. Today’s also …

007 Fragrance: The smell’s Bond, James Bond

Fancy smelling like James Bond? No, it’s not some clever olfactory disguise devised by the inimitable Q, but rather a new men’s aftershave called 007 from P&G launching exclusively online and in-store at Harrods from 15th August 2012. Harking back to the Fougere perfumes of the 1960s (arguably the first “hero scent” range for men), the 007 Fragrance “flawlessly combines irresistible …

Christophe Decarnin Jumps On The Menswear Bandwagon!

00390m.jpg

WWD has confirmed the widespread rumour that Christophe Decarnin is to design a menswear range as part of the Balmain label. Apparently, it will be launched at Men’s Fashion Week in Paris next January.

Decarnin has transformed the Balmain label into a fashion so on the edge it’s almost falling off and his collections have become a staple at each season’s Paris shows. The Balmain show of this season featured a Madonna soundtrack and rah-rah skirt haute couture that, in these times of economic crisis, looked set to be a bit of a failure. However, as is the fashion way, magazines have been calling in the collection left, right and centre and Fashionista has stated that it will no doubt be the same with Balmain Menswear.

Either way, I just want Christophe to know that he can send any samples in the direction of Shiny Towers for a full review (and road-test!)

UPDATE! Sean Connery for Louis Vuitton

Annie Leibovitz, Sean Connery, the Bahamas, Marc Jacobs and plenty of Louis Vuitton- sounds like a pretty enticing mix, doesn’t it? Well no longer must it remain a fantasy as WWD has released the ex-007’s advert for the French luxury-fashion house and it’s better than we were expecting. After Keith Richard and Francis Ford Coppola, Leibovitz has again captured a mature cool that is slowly abolishing the bling/label-whore mood often synonymous with Vuitton’s accessories.

Vogue Germany- August 2008: Daniel Craig

It was revealed yesterday afternoon that the latest issue of Vogue Germany, has a multiple cover. One goes to Toni Garrn and the other to Brandish fave Daniel Craig.

Daniel is shot by Rankin in an okay editorial and the cover headline is “Mr. Style & Mrs. Chic…” I like the colour palette of hot red with the white-light background and cool colours of Craig’s outfit but the pout is a bit off and the turn of this good-looker’s head makes it look as if he has an odd and inflamed left-ear.

L’Uomo Vogue February 2008- Casey Affleck

Lumo1When I woke up this morning and sat down at my screen, I was confronted with the unsettlingly sad news of Tim leaving (is that fair for someone to have to deal with at such a vulnerable time of the day? – okay, it was 11:30.)
