Harvey Milk: first film-related trend of 2009

By Colin Chapman on January 2nd, 2009

HarveyMilk.jpg

Of all the films pending release in early 2009, MilkGus Van Sant‘s biopic of the gay rights leader/politician Harvey Milk – is most likely to have an impact on the fashion front. As we stride towards a boot-legged, tight-hipped summer, the movie might just start to look prescient: suggesting alternatives to the side parting (big hair!) and yet more reasons to grow a moustache.

Whilst it’s unlikely that Sean Penn will be raising much sartorial interest (despite a great performance) his more fashion-friendly co-stars just might. Emile Hirsch, who graced the cover of AnOther Magazine last year, wears his big-frame specs with a certain nous and his leather jacket/plaid shirt combo is thriftstore classic. Meanwhile, Lucas Grabeel turns more than a few Castro-bound heads, looking especially fetching in a frock, though, in general, he works the 70s look with aplomb as does Milk’s love interest, James Franco.

Milk is in UK cinemas from January 23rd.

Russell Brand and Thom Browne at the GQ Men of the Year Awards

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. My personal winners on the night were Thom Browne, sporting his trademark short cut, and although I’ve never heard of him before I applaud young Anton Yelchin‘s choice of outfit, the hat is inspired and gives him a slightly creepy air of authority.

Funniest prize has to go to Prick of the Year, which was won by Gordon Ramsay, ha! James Franco who appeared on the cover of Vogue Hommes and Man About Town this year was voted Screen Idol proving his worth as current sartorial mancrush. See after the jump for more of the winners.

James Franco does gingham

Check has undeniable appeal but right now it’s a little overexposed so stick to something with a little more longevity. Make like James Franco and go for gingham, it’s a little more dressed up than indie plaid and has classic appeal. Trust Franco, he appeared on the cover of the last issue of Man About Town; although I’m not so sure I’d follow his footwear having seen long shoes in this picture.

James Franco Does Agyness Deyn in Interview October 2008

By Will Reid on September 22nd, 2008

Franco’s cover (left) bears a striking resemblance to Agy Deyn’s Pop editorial of S/S 2007

Oops- I genuinely only just realised that the title of this post could be interpreted pretty freely. Anyway, let’s all just grow up and listen to the explanation.

Basically, after a sell-out premiere issue featuring Kate Moss in a cat-suit, Interview magazine has decided to use James Franco on the cover of their October issue. Photographed by Mikael Jansson, this is a huge step for Franco and after his role as the latest Gucci-guy, he has cemented himself as a fixture on the high-fashion scene. This cover however, reminds me of Agyness Deyn’s editorial in the Spring/Summer 2007 issue of Pop Magazine.

Read on for more pictures and a full editorial review with highlights including Raf Simons, Karl Templer and Ryan McGinley.

James Franco puts on a serious face for Gucci

By admin on August 20th, 2008

After Ewan McGregor for Davidoff and Justin Timberlake for Givenchy James Franco joins the latest ranks of celebs advertising male scents.
It’s ve-ery slick and deadpan, the black & white cinematography and deep voiceover are a million miles away from Franco’s early beginnings on Freaks and Geeks. The track is a Brian Ferry cover of Slave to Love done by the uber fashionista Roisin Murphy.

I’m Still Not Convinced- The Short Suit

By Will Reid on July 3rd, 2008

shortsuit.jpgA while ago, we remarked on how a Telegraph feature on the short suit had used rather unusual models to create an unflattering portrayal of the look.

However, this picture (taken at the launch of Gucci by Gucci Pour Homme in Milan,) shows that even the fashionistos of the industry can’t get it right. While also not the most model-ly of men, Bruce Pask of the New York Times would be one of those I thought could pull of this challenging look.

My verdict? I think this would look better with cropped sleeves. Simply roll up your long sleeves to the elbow or at least take them off the cuff as this contrast of short/sleeve length is usually an unflattering one.

Try shoes that can be worn without socks; a cool loafer or Topman canvas brogue. I, as a bit of a sartorial risk-taker (read: hit/miss dresser,) would add a pair of House of Holland velvet loafers in shocking purple or pink.

Now if only Lapo Elkann would give it a try!
