Ps. How ridiculous are these cover taglines?
Details’ newest cover features pretty boy extraordinaire which I am glad to stare at all day long, but the subtitle is a little off… “proud of his package”…. um, ok? I will disregard that overly awkward Detail (hah) and let you all feast your eyes on today’s man candy. Yes, by now you all are aware of my secret love admiration upon Mr. Tatum and Kellan Lutz. So I figured I couldn’t deprive you all of a sexy cover shot featuring the man who has a sick body, can dance circles around y’all (wrong movie? Oh well.) is athletic a la She’s the Man (guilty pleasure anyone?)) and yes, did I mention, has a pretty crazy amazing body.
I would put a hot body picture here, but I figure most of you read this at work or in class, so I’ll spare you the slight embarassment and you can google when you get home all for yourself.
OK, so for those of you wondering how this relates to my usual blog subjects. I figure, every girl needs some arm candy to accompany her other arm candy such as our Birkins, Louis, and Chanels. And no one has better arm candy than Jenna Dewan. ALSO, I figure if any guy wants to gain ten points in life feel free to put on a white tee, a tight jacket and go a little cowboy like Channing, it’s a style that will never grow old.
Marky Mark made CK underwear a must-have for any man who wanted to be the “it” boy, or just walk around the house in their underwear and feel hot…. But oh wait, Mr. Wahlberg, there is a new man in town and he will be giving your pretty boy face a run for your money….
Yes, Kellan Lutz. I love that I just did a post on how amazing his abs were in the Cosmopolitan spread, and now here he is, the new face, or actually body, for Calvin Klein underwear. I do not think they could’ve picked a better rising star than Kellan and as we can see by that picture above, he absolutely has the body to fill out those tighty whities.
So if you still had any doubts, yes, I’m on Team Emmett.

There are many men in Hollywood right now* whose style I enjoy and dream that one day my significant other will embrace as well. Men such as George Clooney who always looks polished but relaxed in his open collared shirt-suit combo, Tom Brady with his boyish good looks who can rock the field and the red carpet, and of course who could forget 007. Daniel Craig and all former secret agents are as well known for their martini shaken not stirred, as they are for their suit.
GQ advises, “If you want to be taken seriously, pay as much attention to your hair as your suit. You’re going to be judged from head to toe.” I also, LOVE the advice of “Underdressing is the only sin. You should never be afraid to be the best-dressed man in the room.” Guys so often think they need to look aloof in order to be “cool”… no, boy who hasn’t brushed his hair in weeks, that is not true! A suit paired with confidence adds a sex appeal that is undeniable. Um, Don Draper anyone? Yes, please.
What made me think of this post is, first of all I do have some male readers, but also I saw the absolutely adorable Chace Crawford’s new spread in WWD and thought WOW, he is much more than just Nate Archibald now. I never really thought he was the cute one of the show, maybe it was the fact that his bangs were longer than mine or he looked like he manscaped more than any guy I’d ever seen. But he is definitely growing up and setting a name for himself outside of our beloved GG.
He is becoming perfectly polished and looking almost old Hollywood with that slicked back hair. A white suit looks fabulous and if you feel comfortable pulling it off (and aren’t too clumsy with drinks!) it would be the perfect NYE choice. In my experience, a bow tie is a little harder to pull off for a man. I love that they paired it with a leather jacket to give it a tougher look, but be more careful with that choice. A skinny tie on the other hand is definitely back in style and great on anyone.
Hint: leave this page up while your boyfriend is over and maybe he’ll get the hint to buy a new suit and take you out in it!
What do you think about my eye candy choices? Who are your favorites?!
* I emphasize right now because I could go on and on about the style of men such as Hubert Givenchy, Cary Grant and Marcello Mastroianni for a whole other page and a half. So this post is dedicated to men who are still walking the red carpets. This also does not include fabulous men such as Tom Ford who have absolutely perfected the suit.
So as soon as I got my monthly fix, i.e. Cosmopolitan Magazine, I was stunned to see this spread of Kellan Lutz and Samantha Basalari. First of all, Kellan has definitely been overshadowed by those other two for farrrr too long. Maybe it’s his new hair color (he used to be blonde) but all of a sudden I actually want to go see New Moon. (I have an issue with seeing movies when they first come out & I know there will be shrieking and giggling and I seem to have this awesome curse of always sitting next to the person who answers their cell phone. Ugh.)
OK back to topic: He looks hot. She is beautiful. And together it makes me want to leave the City forever and go find a deserted cabin-ranch type place to live at forever and just wear my boyfriend’s clothes and have perfectly tousled hair 24/7.
Now this spread was accompanied by some pretty awful captions such as “The coolest part about seeing a girl wear something comfortable is the smile that you can just feel coming through from inside her” but you know, I can forgive things like that because really who needs any reading when they can look at him in the third photo with those chiseled abs. He redeems himself a bit with “It’s nice to see bits and pieces of a woman exposed. As a guy, you get that mystery — especially when a dress or top isn’t too snug.” Cute.
I am definitely a fan of this spread and all of the pieces she is wearing. Chunky knits paired with not much else, leg warmers (a previous post favorite!), and all the layering a girl could want. The layering in the last photo is perfect because sometimes tons of pieces can become bulky and make the sex appeal get lost, but the way the tops are complimented by the sexy over-the-knee boots, with a girly half -up hairstyle that looks effortless (but we all know is not!) is the perfect outfit before the temps get too cold.
But let’s be honest, Kellan is the star of this spread…. Well, and his abs.
