Marni For H&M (!), Why You Shouldn’t Watch The VS Show Tonight, What Nate Berkus Told Me About His Hair + More!
Why You Shouldn’t Watch The VS Show Tonight
It’s estimated that Victoria’s Secret spent $12 million producing this year’s show, the most expensive lingerie show known to man. But after watching the low-res preview that broke on November 10th (video above), a big yawn was in order. I mean, performers aside (Jay-Z, Kanye West, Nicki Minaj, others not worth mentioning), what about this feels fresh, new or exciting? You could’ve slapped on the title Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2003, and no one would know the difference. That’s a problem.
Sure, the girls would be a dead giveaway, but let’s talk about that for a hot minute. Isn’t this show really suppose to be for straight guys, a glorified version of a time when men beat off to the catalog in the bathroom? Except a lot of these girls aren’t straight-man-friendly, especially with the addition of girls like Karlie Kloss (it’s rumored that Chanel Iman was required to put on some weight). The other way of looking at this is gay men loving all of their favorite models coming together on TV, right? Wrong. We don’t want to see them in lingerie. We want to see them in Chloe. What a waste of $12 million.
Marni For H&M
So, Versace sold out in a matter of hours in some cities, leaving us wondering who the next holy-shit designer collaboration would be. New York Mag announced today that Marni for H&M will be available in March — men’s included.
Nate Berkus – Oh, That Hair
Earlier this month I interviewed Nate Berkus for AskMen. The conversation began with me asking him about his hair. (I asked my friends on Facebook what I should ask him, and it was unanimous that people were feeling his hair.) This bit never made the final publication, so here it is:
Sachin Bhola: So, before I jump into the interior design questions, there’s one question that everyone’s talking about and that is: Which hair products do you use, because your hair rocks.
Nate Berkus: [laughs] That is so funny… You know, quite honestly, my hair is naturally curly, so it’s a process every day to get it ready for the show. And my stylist, Steve Berg, who I’ve known for 10 years, um, basically does it while I’m being briefed in the morning for the show and I don’t look up, so I’m not sure what it goes through every day. Really, I don’t know [laughs].
