Glamourous men. Not an easy challenge. But I know you'll have some excellent ideas.
Again, I'm choosing only those who are still on this earth.
At least we know -- hope (?!) -- none of these gentlemen in the entertainment business have stylists. Even when they're walking the red carpet their vestment choices were probably largely in their own hands or the tux was sent over from Armani with a tailor to guarantee a perfect fit.
No matter how often we see these men in photographs I think we know very little about them, therein one of the essential definitions of glamour -- "mystery." We know what they do, but do we really know who they are?
My choices include: George Clooney (yes, yes, I know, but I think he has that Old Hollywood glamour); Robert Redford; Clint Eastwood; Jean d'Ormesson (brilliant, terrifyingly cultivated, prolific writer with a huge sense of humor); Andy Rooney, how can one not be enchanted by a curmudgeon (?); and My-Reason-For-Living-In-France, really, he is.
For the men, I've created an entirely different subcategory called simply: "Maybe, Maybe Not. I'm Not Completely Sure."
Johnny Depp, for example falls into this group. Apart from being a brilliant actor and a talented painter, he is a private man when and where it counts. And, he certainly knows how to get himself up in some exceedingly creative get-ups and we know he pulled them together all by himself -- or maybe with a little help and encouragement from Vanessa.
Also in the sub crowd:
Bernard-Henri Levy, the fascinating, media-loving philosopher.
André Leon Talley, American Vogue contributing editor.
Johnny Depp (I imagine many of you are thinking, "Move him up, move him up!")
