The latest issue of American GQ looks set to be an exciting issue. While not the most fashion-forward of magazines, GQ manages to provide consistent style advice and it usually has at least a few good features.

In this issue, we have Justin Timberlake posing in a variety of stylish albeit bland looks and one of the most interesting looking features looks set to be their ‘Top 10 Most Stylish Men in America’ feature. Check back soon for the entire list with pics!

It was seemingly awkward stares all round at the US GQ Men of the Year party in LA recently. Russell Brand sported the faraway be-sunglassed look of someone who has just been scorned and check out Adam Brody‘s weird fake smile.

Last night The Royal Opera House, London saw the GQ men of the year awards. I wasn’t invited let alone nominated which of course draws a question mark over the validity of the event, however that aside it still proves to be a great opportunity for the men of London and the world to get up and be counted for style and talent. Some of the more interesting awards went to the following: International Man – Josh Brolin, Most Stylish Man – Brandon Flowers, Designer – Christopher Bailey, Politician – Boris Johnson (really? I mean seriously though, really?) and Radio Personality – Chris Evans (again: really? I mean radio yes but personality? I wouldn’t have thought so).

Popsugar reports that GQ writer Glenn O’Brien is not down with flip flops and I’m inclined to agree. They’re great for the beach but for work or social occasions flip flops are just a little too studenty.

Yesterday, I really enjoyed Jason’s piece on the right-wing tendencies of modern magazines but this obviously doesn’t apply in America- well that’s if the latest US GQ cover is anything to go by. The actor Robert Downey Jr. stars and this time it is not with props from his latest Iron Man movie (ah, Gwyneth) but in seemingly fetish-inspired stocking hats and stripes. Would you expect anything less from Brandish-loved Terry Richardson?

So I realise that this is the second time we ( fine, I) have looked at Hayden Christensen on a magazine cover over a relatively short time period but surely a young male celebrity who has every reason to be guarded with the use of his image but agrees to be on the cover of a men’s (non-dirty) magazine in only its second issue deserves to mentioned in our blog? Now better looking blog I might mention.
