The New Nerd is Beautiful

The bigger the better for glasses. Bright colored rims are great! White, Pink, Purples are my favorite.

 

Faux Collar necklaces really transform an outfit! Mix a faux collar with a plain sweater or a lace blouse.

Male model evolution

  •   THE 80’S

Image Detail 

Jeff Aquilon one of the few to pioneer the term “Male Super Model” emerging in the early 1980s. He stands at 6’2. Little is known about him because back in those days male models were paid very little and no one documented much of anything because there was not much internet use.

 

 BRUCE HULSE He worked during the industry’s most glamorous and edgy era–the 80s and 90’s. He stands at 6’2

  • THE LATE 80’S ~ EARLY 90’S

 

Marcus Schenkenberg was discovered in 1989. He stands at 6’4.  Best known for his Calvin Klein ad.

   

Rick Dietz became famous by building Chippendales into a house hold brand. He changed his look and desire to be “model like.” In 1995 Herb Ritts shot the world wide campaign for Valentino and labled Dietz a “male supermodel.”  He stands at 6’3.

Image Detail 

Djimon Hounsou stands at 6’3, originated from Africa. He went to Paris and was homless until discoved by a fashion photographer in the 90’s. He has since graced the catwalks of Paris and London as a popular male model, been in numerous music videos and in several films.

  • THE MID 90’S

 

Mark Vanderloo  standing at 6’2 landed, by being in the right place at the right time, a national commercial for Holland’s dairy board in the early 1990’s. In 1994 he became Calvin Klein’s Obsession model. He then began the assault heading to Milan where he would end up being connected to what is now known as the Fab 4, who included good friend Alex Lundqvist.

 

Alex Lundqvist modeling career began in the summer of 1994. He stands at 6’0

  • EARLY 2000

 

 Lars Burmeister height 6’1, presence and strong looks were felt instantly by fashion observers and especially to photographer Craig McDean, who recruited him in 2004 as the spokes model for Hugo Boss.

 

 Robert Konjic stands at 6’1. He’s been hot since 2009.

  • 2012

          Image Detail

Clement Chabernaud height 6’0 was ranked #3 most sucessful model in 2012.

Mathias Lauridsen Mathias Lauridsen

Mathias Lauridsen was discovered in 2003. Stands at 6’1 and was recently named #1 most sucessful male model on models.com but then was beaten by Sean O’Pry.

 

 Sean O’Pry  height 6’1. In June 2009, he was named the world’s most successful male model of 2009 by Forbes publications. He is currently the most successful male model in the world on models.com.

For me, I think they got it right in the 80’s.  Jeff Aquilon and Bruce Hulse are my favorite looking guys. There body’s are perfect! They look like naturally active, fit men. I’m also a fan of the 90’s models Djimon Hounsou and Mark Vanderloo. Sexy!!!  Why have the male models body type and facial features gotten more feminine in the past 30 years? I can’t wait when the 80’s & 90’s look comes back IN! As if, anywhere but in fashion, it was ever out.

Active fashion from head to toe

While at the gym trying to look good, we can still look good doing it. I love loose flowing shirts in plain bright colors. Pinks, purples, blues, white, orange it’s all fun. Skip the shirts with Large words written on them and go simple. Sometimes less is more.

Black fitted workout pants are great for everyone. I love Victoria’s Secrets fold over yoga pants and Champions Capri styled bicycle pants.

If you go out in the sun to hike or play tennis, make sure you sport a fun baseball cap to protect your face from unwanted wrinkles from the harsh UV rays. Get a creative cap. A unique design that is fun and cute but not overly blinged out or dramatic will be a nice touch. How about one of these hats? I love the Blue hat with the yellow and purple circles! Fashion is all about the details.

Get some comfy and stylish shoes. I just bought these sneakers from Columbia shoes. They have a great arch and are fit for my narrow foot. First it’s important to have a sneaker that is comfortable. Second, make sure the color of the sneaker pops and is feminine.

Now you are ready to hit the gym or the hiking trail already looking good.

Summer is here, Let’s romp!

  Summer is here in LA. It’s getting hot and it’s definitely time to pull out the summer clothes. I love rompers. They are cute and they are super easy to pull on most of the time. They are a quick no hassle go to item. There are so many to choose from. You can dress it up with heals out to a date or just rock them with some flat sandals to the mall. The best thing I like about rompers is that they can give the appearance of a fun flirty dress yet you don’t have to worry about your skirt blowing up in that summer breeze..
