I Spied

Black-tie affairs are special events, yet we men rarely put much thought into our outfits. It’s boring when everyone just wears the same generic tux. Even the stars on Oscar night, with access to formalwear from the best fashion houses and world-class tailoring, often end up looking like a crowd of penguins, each one identical...

Style Icon: Sidney Poitier

Writer, director, humanitarian, cultural icon and, most notably, Academy-Award winning actor, Sidney Poitier is a man of many hats. Hugely influential in the mid-20th century both politically and socially, few men can claim as important a part in presenting a positive black role model in popular media. Charming, charismatic, and debonair in the truest sense...
An Ode to Liz Lemon

An Ode to Liz Lemon

Last Thursday was a very sad day. We said goodbye to the hilarious and entertaining show 30 Rock, which has given us seven incredible seasons of clever writing, classic characters, and feeling okay about eating so much (because Liz Lemon does the same thing, obvs).

Gold Decorations Shine at Golden Globes

As red carpet season rolls in, I realize that every year the most beautiful stars choose to wear the same inmemorable dress: a flowy, strapless, sweetheart-necklined dress that flatters almost any body type. With so many designers and styles to choose from, I always hope to see my favorite actresses in stunning, original gowns. This...

Video of the Week: Why Do You Let Me Stay Here

During a MODA Magazine layout session, I was reminded of this music video for She & Him’s song, “Why Do You Let Me Stay Here.” The video features Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, the stars of 500 Days of Summer.
