Some things are just plain sexy… this is one of them.

Some things warrant deep analysis and interpretation, and some things are just plain sexy. Pierre Dal Corso is one of those photographers that can do either fantastically but especially the latter – you need only look at his latest work for French magazine OOB.

5 ways for girls to rock a tie this spring

For what seemed like the longest time, ties have been strictly associated with the menswear department, defining dandy looks and helping shape a gentleman’s ever so polished appearance. But as society has undergone evolution, the masculine-feminine boundaries have slowly blurred.

See, do, read, check out: what to do this weekend

Interview talks to Cara Delevingne (in case the sexy photoshoot wasn’t enough), research confirms that the internet has made us all narcissistic (we knew it but were just too busy taking #selfies to care), and one well-known author confesses he became more addicted to buying Gucci than most shoe-loving women. That’s all in our reading round-up, while we’ve also got some other cool blogs, articles,…

Jena Dover plays the sexy dame for Gaschette

Fashion and acting are not at all dissimilar; in fact you might say the two are inextricably linked. Fashion helps create a persona, a character, and that’s true for all of us whether we’re models or actors, funfare ride attendants or dental clinic receptionists. So for South African born actress Jena Dover slipping into the role of a sexy BDSM mistress wasn’t just acceptable, it…
