Details rules of style: Victoria Beckham?

By admin on September 4th, 2008

detailsfeatures7v.jpgWhat do you do after you’ve had Lucas Ossendrijver, Consuelo Castilglioni and Michael Bastian giving out rules of style? If you’re Details, you get Victoria Beckham. Unsurprisingly, one of her rules is men shouldn’t wear skinny jeans (as she’s said before).

Her other rules are that style isn’t about money (as countless footballers demonstrate daily) and that men shouldn’t try too hard. The latter rule seems to be a recurring theme lately, but it’s a very vague rule which ultimately comes down to being comfortable in your own skin. Read the rest of Mrs Beckham’s rules after the jump.

David Beckham and Zac Efron sport waistcoats at the Teen Choice Awards

By admin on August 4th, 2008

david beckham zac efron teen choice.jpgDavid Beckham was pictured this week at the Teen Choice Awards in a waistcoat and check shirt combo. Teamed with a pair of jeans it’s a good way to add some smarts to a relaxed outfit.

High School Musical’s Zac Efron took a similar tack and wore his white polo with a tailored grey waistcoat for a classic, fresh look. To emulate Efron and Beckham’s look pick up a waistcoat from Topman or Burton; you can also get do a good selection of secondhand waistcoats from Rokit. Waistcoats can sometimes look a little newsboy or even worse, Boyzone circa 1996 so try to steer clear of anything too retro, like wide-leg pants with turn-ups or baker boy caps.

Brandish Poll: Do You Diet?- And I Don’t Mean Butcher…

By Will Reid on July 17th, 2008

hommejeans3.jpgAs Beckham’s ‘people’ deny he’s been at all enhanced in the Armani pants department and Matt McConaughey is seen in D&G ads being hounded for his bod, it occurs to me that more than ever we men are striving for physical perfection.

More and more I am left sulking at lunch as male friends tell me they are banned from certain foods and no, before you ask, they’re not all gay. Or vain.

So, are you in with this phenomenon? Have you ever dieted or are you more of an iron-pumper?

Tell us in the poll below.

Victoria Beckham’s denim line unwanted by retailers

By admin on July 14th, 2008

1522articleimage_2.jpgIf you couldn’t wait to get your hands on a pair of men’s dVb jeans, you’ll have to wait a good while longer as retailers have refused to stock them. It’s not yet known whether Vicky B will retreat to the drawing board (she might even include some of those skinny jeans she hates) or whether they’ll just lower the price point. Either way, the line has been pushed back to at least next year.

Brandish Poll: Are You A Kiss-’n'-Tella Fella?

By Will Reid on June 16th, 2008

coreyhaim.jpgWhile silently delighting in the sleazy nature of the Daily Mail, I found myself drawn to Corey Haim’s tale of Posh Spice’s lack of pulling prowess. He claims that when Mrs. Beckham kisses she “does this little grrhh thing. What did it feel like? Like a girl gnawing on your lip!” Oh yes, that feeling…?!

Poor Posh, it must be rather rubbish to wake up and find that an 80s Teen-Idol has returned to rain on your sex symbol status (okay, maybe not sex symbol but let’s be nice!) It made me wonder if maybe I too would be rather boastful if I had got with the current Marc Jacobs model. Would I be whipping out stories of my romantic escapades with Lady B if I too had enjoyed her company? Or would I have enough self-repsect to keep quiet?

See the Brandish Poll after the jump to tell us what you think.

Esquire magazine’s best dressed list

By admin on June 11th, 2008

lupe-fiasco.jpg

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.

Kanye West is notably absent from the list and adding insult to omission, someone even manages to spell his name wrong. I wouldn’t describe Fiasco’s style as ‘outlandish hoodies and oversized trainers’ (how do they know his trainers are too big for him?) but West’s style is certainly more refined than Lupe’s.

By admin on June 3rd, 2008

pdiddy_beckham.jpg

Are these two faces the next Dolce & Gabbana, Proenza Schouler or Olsen twins? If P. Diddy has his way (and does he ever not?!), the rapper and football star David Beckham will be the next designer duo to make waves in the fashion industry.

P. Diddy, who added designer to his resume with his Sean John fashion empire, has said he admires Beckham’s style and hopes they can turn their friendship into a business collaboration.

James Corden strips off Beckham-style for Heat magazine

By admin on May 13th, 2008

james corden pants david beckham heat armani.jpg
James Corden, the star of the BBC3 hit sitcom Gavin and Stacey stripped off for a Heat magazine photoshoot parodying David Beckham’s infamous Armani ads. Corden is pictured reclining on an artfully rumpled sheet complete with a comically enhanced package, greased up limbs and moody stare.

Don’t know about you, but I actually think I prefer the Corden version, he’d be much more fun to hang out with, no offence Becks! If you’ve never seen Gavin and Stacey check out the highly amusing clip after the jump.

David Beckham dons slim fitting suit

By Isabelle on January 8th, 2008

Becktighttrousgrey
David Beckham’s outfit leaves a lot more to the imagination than his
recent underwear ad for Armani
and I must say I quite like this look.
It’s very a formal outfit but the fitted proportions make it more
wearable and I love the silhouette it creates.

Some of my Shiny
colleagues were shocked by the tightness of the kecks but they’re so
well cut he can get away with it. His shirt sleeve garters are a nice detail and I love the high-cut waistcoat. It’s just a shame I can’t heap any praise on his wife’s ‘highlighter pen’ outfit. Click on the thumbnail to enlarge picture.

Daily Mail picks on Beckham

By ShinyMedia on April 25th, 2007

73742125David Beckham made waves in the Daily Mail today as they caught him wearing a Cincinnatti Reds baseball cap, a fashion faux pas which is apparently "equivalent to a Newcastle fan wearing a rugby shirt from London." Accusing him of upsetting LA Galaxy fans before he’s even played a match the Mail called the article "Beckham’s sporting fashion blunder". Now I have it on good authority from a bona fide American that this isn’t a big deal at all, so what’s the beef Daily Mail?

Beckham pipped to be sporting style leader

By Isabelle on March 30th, 2007

Davidbeck
US men’s fashion experts are hoping that David Beckham will inject a bit of style into the sporting world in America. "Hopefully it will inspire them to lift their game," said
Adam Rapoport, style editor at men’s fashion magazine GQ. "I
think athletes respond to competition well. If someone’s
looking better than them they want to get on par with them." Despite not yet arriving in the US Beckham has already appeared on the cover of US men’s style mag Details. Wendell Brown, senior fashion editor at Esquire, explained how US sports stars need sartorial guidance: "Desperately. And they’re in need of a tailor, I
hope Beckham has a major impact."

David Beckham strikes a pose for Adidas

By Isabelle on March 21st, 2007

Davidbeckham
Blaps! David Beckham’s new pictures for a campaign for Adidas makes him look like a wannabe gangster rapper, but more Vanilla Ice than Eminem. Don’t you think his leg looks really hairy? This is probably an attempt to rebrand him for the American market, ahead of his multi-million-dollar move to join ‘soccer’ team L.A. Galaxy this summer. Safe blud etc.

David Beckham has been reportedly offered a £10 million contract to be the face L’Oreal. Selling hair products will no doubt enhance his status in LA where he’s playing in Los Angeles Galaxy. It won’t be the first time David Beckham has lent his famous name to advertising, he has also been associated with Gillette and Brylcreem, and has appeared in the US for a ‘Got Milk’ campaign, left.
