I’ve missed doing my red carpet reviews enough! I don’t even read about them on other blogs because it pierces through my soul. So as far as I am concerned, no celebrity has hit any carpet since April. I’m glad they all waited for me…lol. Well, amfAR’s 22nd Cinema Against AIDS Gala brought out some of our favourite famous faces yesterday in France and it got me excited! Here’s why: Continue reading “Red Carpet Review: The 2015 amFAR Gala”

It’s Monday and what better way to hasten the beginning the of a long week than to do a #ManCandyMonday #MenswearMonday…(call it whatever you want) feature?
Let’s face it, we don’t talk about male fashion enough. I’m guilty of that to say the least. This post is for all the hot fashionistos out there. Here’s me (us) saying: we see you, we appreciate, we take note and yes, we swoon… Let the testosterone roll.

1. Christian Confidential

To kick-start our male fashion bloggers countdown, I bring you model, host and lifestyle blogger, Christian Thompson of Christian Confidential. His blog has a lot to offer from exciting giveaways, trendy outfits breakdown, cool interviews and exercise motivation / tips, his body… 😉 …and everything one could expect really from such a hip blogger. Make sure you check it out.

2. Dualleh Abdulrahman

He hasn’t got a blog (that I know of) but Dualleh’s  Lookbook is incredible. He’s a stylist, DIY lover, photographer and artist. And this all comes across in his style. With a modern vintage aesthetic, the Netherlands based Dualleh has mastered the art of mixing different textures and prints to create the timeless product of art that is his style. Find his Facebook here.

3. Filippo Cirulli

Born in Bologna, Italy this 26 year old has set the bar very high for other male fashionistas to follow . Together with Filippo Fiora, they launched the most important Italian menswear fashion blog, The ThreeF. Aside from their duo site, you can also find slaying on this Tumblr. This guy can work anything literally. His looks are so fresh, modern and well-thought out. ‘Nuff said.

4. Denola Grey

A men’s style enthusiast who oozes so much personality. I spotted a picture of him on Instagram and his style immediately caught my eye. He has a great eye for fashion and styling and puts out distinctively strong looks. His ‘About Me’ video gives further insight into his style aesthetic and is indeed a must-watch.

5. Dejon Marquise

Dejon is a stylist extraordinaire. His blog, The Stylist Playground is the bomb. It’s all in the details guys. He is Mr Perfection when it comes to styling. Every single look he puts out is goood. If you’ve got styling enquiries who can style you better than The Stylist? Find Dejon on Instagram for queries.

6. Jason Andrew

When I flick through Jason Andew’s Tumblr, I see class,I see uniqueness,  I see effortless vintage style, I see a gentleman. Jason has IT. He is just too cool to not mention him on my top best dressed males of all time. Go get ’em Jay 🙂 I’d love your hat collection by the way.

7. Les Frères Joachim

The most fashionable brothers in fashion. There isn’t too much of an About Us page on their blog so I am not sure if they are twins or not. Even though I’ve tagged their pictures to identify each one, I can’t tell them apart for the life of me! Swann & Loic Joachim have a minimalist modern approach to fashion which alway wins. Plus I love how they layer effortlessly.

8. The Dapper Diamond District

What’s up Doc? This is dapper professionalism at its finest. Raymond’s blog serves a fine mixture of personal street style from the DMV  coupled with his creative OOTDs. This is one dapper doctor y’all. I love it.

9. Jesse Maricic

With a background in marketing, Jesse fused his love for photography and automobiles into a lifestyle blog in 2011. The outcome was fascinating. His style is bold, fresh and very current. Definitely not for the faint-hearted.  His fierce attitude (and those cheekbones) carry off even his simplest ensembles with so much character.

10. Angel Bespoke

Angel Ramos is the owner, creative director and designer of hand tailored clothing line Angel Bespoke. His style reflects the ‘Angel’ way of life which is the effortless execution of a perfect dishevelment. Esquire Magazine named him best dressed real man for 2010. That says everything. His attention to detail is amazing.

11. TSB Men (The Style Blogger)

Dan Trepanier is the founder of one of the most popular men’s style bogs. As an Esquire Magazine Best Dressed Men In The real World, Dan present his flawless eclectic style is a way that isn’t being done by many. This blog is a refreshing delight as it features not only Dan’s style style interpretation but I’ve discovered so many other cool fashionistos through. Love their Outfit Of The Day fashion face off.

12. The Dapper Homme

J.E Adamu is a twenty-something year old style blogger is born and raised in Toronto to Nigerian parents. He is the definition of dapper. Hence the blog title 😉 His style is impeccable. He’s not scared to incorporate colours into his outfit and he does it to a T. He always looks runway-sharp and I love it. Definitely a force to reckon with in terms of male styling. Werk!

13. Styles by P.Flip

This blogger is also a stylist. He has styled the likes of Fantasia and Adina Howard. Love his mix of vintage and current trends. 

14. Mens Style Pro 

SAbir M Peele is another blogger who’s had the honour to be named Best Dressed Real Man in America  by Esquire Magazine. He’s the  Editor In Chief/Creative Director of Men’s Style Pro, Sabir has a deep passion for menswear and all things manly. My favourite thing about his blog? His advice and useful style tips which come in really handy. 

15. Dan Chiz

Dan Chiz (Real Guys Wear Ties) sets out to explore the personal style, grooming and lifestyle of a modern millennial man. In a few words, Dan sums up himself as: an NYC dweller, fashion week attendee, excessive instagrammer and GQ and details obeyer. Well, it shows. I love the detailing of his looks. This leather jacket for instance should be hanging in my closet 😉 Visit his blog for more editorial-worthy looks.

16. Mohcine Aoki

He is a fashion blogger and stylist from Casablanca, Morocco. His affinity for trendy and edgy street wear is what caught my eye. I love that he’s into details! Studs, zips and spikes are always a part of his look. Plus he owns some of the sickest trousers. And his shoe game slays. I love his collection!

16. Jabari Brown

Laid-back  meets cool. That’s the vibe I get from Jabari’s blog. He’s the definition of casual cool well done. Visit his blog to learn how to nail those basics.

17. Ikiré Jones (Wale Oyejide)

What’s not to like about Wale? From the innovative pieces he  creates to the way he struts in them himself. It’s one thing to be a designer, but it’s another to wear your own clothes well like no one does. Wale does both. I was awestruck when I visited his online shop Ikire Jones. The colours, the fabrics, the prints and most of all the stories. The stories captivated me. I can’t sing his talent enough. Go see for yourself.

18. Art Of A Stylist

Greg Clark is an amazing stylist who doesn’t need to say much. His Tumblr blog speaks volumes. Featured on several style blogs and magazines with quite a few well-known names on his stylist accolades, he is definitely worth checking out.

19. DT Style Daily

Daniel Trust Ndamwizeye is  a Rwandan youth motivational speaker and genocide survivor with a love for style and fashion. He says on his blog: ‘While I truly enjoy (speaking) sharing my story with students and educators across the country, my other passion is fashion — especially men style: that’s why I created DTStyleDaily.com, a place where I can share my personal style with YOU and everything I find interesting.’

20. Male Critique (Rashad Benton)

According to Rashad it’s luxury or nothing. And that’s exactly what he’s here to give y’all. With tailored pieces and expert layering, Rashad’s IG is a joy to look through. Hi Tumblr is vacant 😦 but find him on Instagram @hescockky.

21. A Collected Gentleman

Isaiah Johnson is one dapper and collected gentleman. His blog is on menswear/lifestyle and freelance photography. I love that his looks are very clean and well put together. In his words; ‘I wanted to create something that would be affordable and relatable to everyone no matter their size or gender, so you’ll notice most of the clothes I put together are thrifted, which I hope inspires people to think outside of having to spend a million dollars to look and feel great.   My goal is to show you varied outfits that can all be acquired on budget.  Most importantly, I want you to know that self acceptance is priceless.”…’

22. Park en Madison

A well distinguished gentleman, a sartorialist and a well-dressed citizen. The impeccable Terry Corbett. His online shop sells made to order Belgian loafers for men. All of his footwear is by the Park en Madison brand. I fell in love with the shop’s ‘About Us’ page: Park en Madison makes shoes for Men who eat steak, smoke cigars and love a fine dram of scotch, perhaps with just 1 ice cube, “he may want to let it open up a bit.” He’s an Aficionado, a Bon Vivant, a Gourmand. Some even say, “He’s the Sartorialist to the Sartorial.”…

23.Filippo Fiora

He’s the other half of the first Italian fashion blog The ThreeF. You’ve already seen Filippo Cirulli on #3 above who’s also a blogger on the same platform. I can’t with this Italian hotness. Whenever I see Italy and fashion in the same sentence, I expect quality, authenticity and class. Filippo Fiora is giving all that and MORE.

24. The Bespoke Twins

I always love a twin blog! Mark and Marlon Austin are styled like no other. These talented twins have tonnes to offer including their bespoke creations. I love how the infuse rare vintage pieces with chic modern wares to create this well-balanced style. Footwear is a plus. They are literally killing it. Their exclusive footwear, suits and shirts brand, Bespoke Couture, has a lot to offer you n terms of handcrafted original masterpieces.

25. Kenneth Guidroz

Kenneth is a model, actor, father and decision maker. You know you’ll be on my Top Bloggers list if you look as good with your clothes off as you do with them on! Bring on the heat Ken, we diggin’;) Visit his blog for more swoon-worthy snaps.

26. A Curated Man

Wale describes his blog as ‘just your everyday man stumbling…somewhat carefully… through his love affair with menswear.’

His motto? Work hard, dress well. And he sure does. I just love everything about his fine styling. Very impeccable. His shoe collection makes me happy. On his blog you’ll find relevant brand product reviews, what to wear ideas and so many helpful tips on men’s styling. He’s definitely a top contender for best male fashion blogs.

27. Edward Honaker

Edward Honaker has perfect hair hence his Tumblr blog Edward’s Hair. His style aesthetic is preppy cool style  with just a nice touch of intended dishevelledness. He’s rocking it. His style is giving me a certain Gossip Girl vibe or am I the only one? Did I mention how insane his photography portfolio was??! I was amazed by the deep images he’d captured. Be sure to tune in in to his blog.

28. Proper As Hell

Well you don’t expect to visit a blog called Proper As Hell without seeing a guy whose style was well, proper as hell. For this young style blogger, the key is in the details. The squares, the hats, the brooches, the shoes, the glasses…everything comes together nicely and forms one hell of a good look. Bravo gentleman!

29. Bryan Boy

Bryan Boy has come a long in the fashion industry. The fact that he’s currently a panel judge on the America’s Next Top Model show is a testament to how impacting his passion for fashion is. His aesthetic is cheeky, quirky and haute. Go Bryan!

30. A Brotha’s Eye

Y’all gon’ learn today how old school is done…This brotha is taking old school vintage realness to a whole new level. He does it tastefully. I LOVE his aesthetic. Very unique. He’s serving the sartorial gentleman and I like it. Visit his blog to view fashion through a brotha’s eye.

31.Ostentation & Style

Steven Onoja is a Nigerian style enthusiast. Steven is inspired by everyday life, culture and the mix of fashion from the best of both cultures. His blog is absolutely impressive I must say. I couldn’t stop going through his pictures. Impeccable styling. Mix of textures is a gift and he has it.

32. Simon Crompton / Permanent Style

I had one of those ‘finally!’ moments with this blogger. After seeing his picture on Tumblr for so long, I was finally able to trace the identity of the blogger. Gosh, I hate when that happens by the way. If someone is fly, please tag them or provide source information. Anyhoo, not only does Simon have great sense of style but the content on his blog is amazing. Very useful. Guys get in here. he’s got EVERY topic covered.

33. Fashitect

While I can’t say this for many male bloggers, I can say this for Toni Tran; I’m seriously coveting some of his wardrobe pieces. This guy is bringing out some delicate wools, luxury laces, fine linen and hot accessories (that feather), woven scarves… and I want all of it! Plus his feature on food, travels and photography is out of this world.

34. Street Etiquette

Joshua Kissi and Travis Gumbs are two cool lads you’d want to know. They are the faces and voices being the popular men’s lifestyle website Street Etiquette.  Founded in 2008, Street Etiquette showcases style using a cultural, historical and urban perspective.

A combination of vibrant street style, captivating photography and style-rich snaps is just a tip of what you will find on Dapper Lou’s blog. Exceptional work he does. Great job Lou 🙂

36. He Spoke Style

He spoke and style happened. This dapper specimen of a man is called Brian Sacawa. This multi-talented blogger and musician just oozes that confidence and style that comes with having a certain amount of expertise in your field. He also offers some great fashion advice on his blog. You wouldn’t regret time spent on it.

37. The Gentleman Blogger

Need I say much? His blog title says everything. The accessories, the lifestyle, the quality, the accolades…this guy is the whole package. Each outfit is even more suave than the last. I absolutely love his work and he deserves all the praise he gets. Matthew Zorpas is a London-based creative consultant. He founded The Gentleman Blogger in June 2012. This stylish individual has been recognized as the 2nd Best Dressed Man in Britain by Esquire magazine UK (2010) and GQ Taiwan named him one of top five best dressed men in the world for 2013. Matthew has released his first self-published book, London 100, A Gentleman’s Guide.

38. Man of A Kind

Henri-Nicholas is a one of a kind blogger. He boasts some key pieces in his wardrobe which totally sealed his looks. That bric suede jacket for example. The bomb.com!

 41. Mariano Di Vaio

Someone suggested this blog in the comments so I checked him out and …OMG. How have I never heard of him? His blog is insane. Outfit after outfit after outfit. I just had to modify my list. Make sure to check Mario out. Simply gone with the wind fab.

“Born in 1989, in the small and fascinating Assisi, Mariano Di Vaio leaves Italy very soon, just eighteen, to pursue his actor and model career: one year in London, working as a model, and then in New York City, to study acting at NYFA.

Back to Europe, he continued his professional career as a model, quickly obtaining magazine covers and collaborations with top international brands (i.e. cavalli, brunello cucinelli, gucci) In March 2012, he opened his own blog, www.mdvstyle.com, a digital magazine dedicated to men’s passions: no just fashion, but also lifestyle, sports, travel, music and movies. The growth of the blog, combined with his official profiles active on social networks, made Mariano one of the most influent worldwide fashion blogger, able to reach, on a daily basis, millions of people.” 

And there you have it! 40 Fabulously Stylish Fashionitos from around the world. They are not listed in ANy intentional order. I usually make up up my list as I find these blogs. So there’s no competition 🙂

Which blogs are you bookmarking? And not for ulterior motives …hehehehe 😉

Hope you enjoyed the post ABYers.

Style Diary has been quiet for some time now but no more! I’ve been keeping this special style diary feature, saving it for last because she’s one of my favourite bloggers. She is on top of this game as far as I’m concerned. Plus I just love her. Maybe cos she looks a little bit like my sister Barbie…oh well. Repping London and Lagos today for us is Fisayo…

 

ABY: Tell us a little about yourself

I’m Fisayo Longe. A Nigerian girl living in London always looking for the next pair of shoes to buy or country to travel to. I have a deep love for travel and fashion and the way both worlds magically interact with each other.

ABY: How would you describe your style?

I haven’t discovered my style yet- I don’t have a sort of uniform. I wear whatever my mood leads me to and it is often inspired by travel, my instincts and images I see on the internet everyday.

ABY: What are your favourite high street and high end brands?

My favourite high-end brand is Balenciaga. I also love Phoebe Philo’s Celine. Favourite high street store is ASOS 😉

ABY: If you had the power to, which one fashion store would you wipe out from the face of this earth and why???

Jane Norman- it hurts my eyes.

ABY: That made me choke. LMAO! Oh lawd. Jane Norman. Please stop it. What do you splurge on?

 I splurge on my shoes and bags. More recently, coats. Those are the pieces that can really take an affordable outfit to the next level.

ABY: Apart from fashion, what interests you? I’m a sucker for books and novels 😉 I’m literally running out of places to keep them! 

Deeper than my love for fashion is my love for travel. Nothing inspires me more than venturing into the unknown.

ABY: You look flawless. Any beauty secrets or tips you’d like to share?

I can’t believe you think I look flawless, I am so terrible with make-up! Everything I wear is MAC. My favourite make-up thing is MAC’s Rebel lipstick.

ABY: Favourite fragrance

I only wear Alien by Thierry Mugler– that’s all I’ve worn for the past 4 years.

ABY: Fave music at the moment

Everything Childish Gambino– especially his album ‘Camp’.

 ABY: Your favourite trends currently?

I love All White– is that still considered a trend? Seems like it’s been  a major thing for the past 3 years.

ABY: The trends I just don’t get are…

I would have said Birkenstocks. But then I bought a very similar type of shoe from River Island. I seem to get everything when I see them on the right people. It’s all about interpretation and execution.

ABY: This question is just for fun lol! Which profession has the coolest/ most fashionable uniform?

Ummm, maybe air hostesses? They always look so good.

 ABY: With all the travelling you’ve done, I imagine you’ve seen the best (and worst) of hostesses. Which TV show has/had the best fashion? Revenge & Scandal for me 😉

Gossip Girl– favourite of all time! Dare I say even better than SATC (Sex And The City)?

 

ABY: Your all time fashion no-no’s

I have no no-no’s. Looking tacky is always bad news. There’s such a fine line with some outfits. I won’t say I’ve never been guilty.

ABY: Top 5 Fashion Must Haves:

-A Chanel boy bag,

-Balenciaga cut-out boots,

-A white shirt,

-A really well-cut pair of black trousers,

-A white t-shirt

ABY: Your best fashion buy EVER…

My Balenciaga cut-out boots. That was the most expensive item I had bought with my own money and my hands were trembling as I handed over my card. No regrets!

ABY: Your fashion icons are

The Olsen twins and the Russian street style girls always look good.

ABY: Your favourite quote

What Other People Think Of You Is None Of Your Business. – only with that in mind are you going to LIVE and bring your best ideas to reality.

Wow. There’s that. Has Fisayo left you speechless as she has me? What’s your verdict?

Today’s Style Diary is QUEEN and I can’t get enoughg of her portraits. Check out Paola Mathe’s diary:

ABY: Give us a little bio stats

My name is Paola. I’m originally from Haiti. I used to be an executive in hospitality management. I have opened, managed, and operated hotels and restaurants in NYC, but recently, I decided to quit my day job to only focus on the creative side of me. My hobbies include hiking, hula hooping, reading, blogging, traveling, hosting fun/lavish gatherings, and always learning new things. I am now the creative director/owner of Fanm Djanm, a headwrap line  and movement to empower and inspire women around the world. The line is about dreamers and doers. Fanm Djanm means strong woman in my Kreyol language, and that’s what the brand advocates. It’s a celebration of strong women everywhere.


ABY: How would you describe your style and what influences your style?

My style is influenced by my Haitian background, African culture, and various cities around the world I’ve visited and dream of visiting. I love colors and mixing patterns, prints, textures, and cultures. My eyes always fall on things that most people don’t bring attention to. I love looking at older African women in their traditional gears in Harlem. I love staring into the sky at colorful balloons floating above my head. And I love old buildings and architecture. I fall into a daydream whenever I’m out, and that’s where I get my style. It’s all over the place. From sequins, to leather, to basics, to African prints, stripes, and florals. And I love vintage!

 

ABY: I can tell. You look good in them! Your favourite high end and high street brands?

I’m not sure because I would always say a favorite thing is something I’ve already tried, and I have not been able to afford any of these things yet. I have two great DVF (Diane Von Furtenberg) dresses I scored from consignment boutiques, and I’m in love with them. So I would say, she’s definitely up there. Her dresses are classics, and they will never leave my closet until I have a daughter, and she starts stealing from me like I used to do to my mom. I’m pretty sure very soon, I’ll have a beautiful Chanel purse. To me Chanel screams class, femininity, and chicness. Although I don’t always appear chic or feminine, but I love the classic purse. I also want a (statement) Louboutin shoe. Yes, I do! Everything else to me is either too expensive or tries too hard. 

 

ABY: If you had the power to, which one fashion store would you wipe out from the face of this earth and why??? 

Maybe the ones that make a fortune and force humans to work in poor conditions. All of those would be wiped off and their owners would be exiled to an island where THEY would do all the hard labor and see what it feels like to treat another person like crap. But it seems like most fashion brands already do that.. So does that mean, I should just hire personal tailors for my clothes? Maybe… In due time! 

ABY: You make a good point! What do you splurge on?

Cosmetics! I love good makeup! I’m obsessed with lipsticks. I would pay $50 for a good lipstick if I think it’s worth it. I splurge on food and having a good time. I’ve spent $50 on a good hula hoop before too. I want an LED one, and that one costs over $100, I’m pretty sure I’ll get it soon.

ABY: I can tell you now that it’s worth it. You look amazing! Which brings me on to my next question. You look flawless. Any beauty secrets or tips you’d like to share. Favourite make-up brands and all that.

Ahhhh! Flawless is a stretch! I use mostly natural products on my skin and hair now. African black soap, different oils and butters. But I love the Clinique super hydrating face lotion. I’ve been using it for years. I love Chanel, MUFE, MAC, Nars makeup!

ABY: I added this one because your hair is on point FAB! Share with us any natural tips you’ve got. Your favourite products and go to styles 😉

Well, now that I’m doing a #30dayheadwrapchallenge. That’s my go to! But I love the high puff and pinning my hair up. I say go with a good leave-in (I love Kinky Kurly Knot Today) for my hair, and some good oils. I love the Haitian brand Kreyol Essence for castor oil and Pomad Kreyol. Check them out!

 ABY: What fragrance are you loving at the moment?

I have a collection of Chanel perfumes I rotate around. My favorite of them is Chance.

 ABY: Your favourite music tracks right now…? 

I’m all about Azonto ( I think I’m a Naija at heart), Belo and Emeline Michel (Haitian artists). I have them on REPEAT!

ABY: Aren’t we all? LOL. Your favourite trends currently? 

My favorite trends? I’m not really sure what’s trending. But if pastels, fringe, florals, African prints, and bright lips are… then those are my current favorite trends because well, they’re always my favorite trends. I wear them no matter what!

 

ABY: The trends I just don’t get are…

The long pointy nails. I just don’t know about those… I don’t care how feminine the nail polish is, it still reminds me of witches’ hands, which is cool if girls want to look like witches. You can be a hot witch! Go ‘head girl. 

 ABY: I am so guilty, haha! Your ultimate fashion no-nos are…

I guess I would say no to panty lines. And I don’t like seeing bras worn with backless clothing. And it’s all about wearing clothes that FITS! I don’t like when girls fidget too much because they purchased something they clearly can’t fit into, and they’re uncomfortable the whole time they’re out. Being comfortable is the sexiest thing. 

 ABY: I concur about fitting. Very necessary.Your top 5 wardrobe must-haves. 

-Leather jacket

-headwrap

-boyfriend jeans

-pretty wrap dress

-statement necklace…

Do I only have to choose five? No? OK, I’ll add

-vintage hats

-maxi skirts

-and dresses, denim shirts and dresses, and platform shoes.  

ABY: Your best fashion buy EVER…

I got this awesome green and gold sequined jacket from the Goodwill in Austin texas, and it’s so(ooo) cool! And it only cost me about $9! I freakin’ love good deals! I don’t know if that’s EVER! But I can’t think of anything else at the moment. 

ABY: Your fashion icons…

Definitely Solange Knowles (without a doubt), Grace Jones (for her awesome hats), my mother when she used to be the life of the party in Haiti, and old stylish ladies I see randomly on the street. They make me think of how fabulous I can be even when I’m much older. 

 

 

ABY: Your favourite quote/saying 

“Anpil men chay pa lou.” Old Haitian proverb that means “many hands lighten the load.”
