Every Menswear Look from the 2013 Met Gala

Grace Coddington speaks straight up truth at the Met gala. 

With a few notable exceptions (Zachary Quinto, Christina Ricci and Madonna, I’m looking at you), there was a severe lack of punk aesthetic at last night’s “Punk” Met gala.

Here are Zachary, Christina and Madonna serving up some punk realness:

Today’s Style: Cinque Terre

  • Suit: Michael Kors
  • Shirt: Express
  • Cufflinks: Vivienne Westwood
  • Belt: Gift
  • Socks: Sock Dreams
  • Shoes: Steve Madden

There’s something very magical about the villages in Cinque Terre. Walking between Monterosso and Vernazza, it felt like I was in another world. It was a wonderful experience, made only more special by the fact that I watched the sun come up over the beach in Monterosso. And yes, I hiked 3 miles in a white linen suit. And it was spotless when I was done.

Earlier, I posted my photos from Parco dei Mostri in Bomarzo of the park’s “monsters”. Here are my photos with the monuments in the park. I particularly love the first one, which reminds me of something out of Game of Thrones. What do you think?

Today’s Style: Up Against The Wall

Today’s Style: Park of the Monsters

In the 1500’s, Vicino Orsini commissioned the Sacro Bosco Parco dei Mostri, or “Park of the Monsters” as a memorial to his wife. But in addition to a mausoleum and other more traditional memorials, he also included a selection of monsters, orcs with open mouths, dragons fighting lions and more. I was captivated by the park and was so happy to have the opportunity to have a shoot here. The park is just north of Rome, outside the small town of Bormarzo and is definitely worth a visit. I actually did two sets here, this one focusing on the monsters and another one focusing on the memorials.

Today’s Style: The Burial

  • Suit: Michael Kors
  • Tie: RokGear
  • Shirt: Express
  • Cufflinks: Vivienne Westwood
  • Belt: Gift
  • Socks: Sock Dreams
  • Shoes: Steve Madden

Most of my trip to Italy was a lot of fun. But the main purpose of the trip was to bury my father. He died a year ago, but he had wanted to go to Italy before he died. It’s where our family is from, but he was confined to a wheelchair and wasn’t able to travel much. So after he died, I came up with the idea of my brothers and I taking him to Italy. Doing in death for him what he couldn’t do in life. I’ve posted before about how complicated and conflicted my relationship with my father was, but I was glad I could do this for him. I hope he can rest now. 

Who knew ashes could be so heavy?

During my trip to Italy, I found the Galileo museum in Florence and I fell in love with it. Everything from the giant clockwork globe to Galileo’s own sketches, telescope and fingers. Yep, even his fingers were on display there.
