Men in Suits

16 May 2012

Status: Fantasising over owning Manolo Blahniks.
Time: 2AM

I don't know about you girls, but nothing, and I mean NOTHING (with the exception of a man in a military/navy uniform) turns me on more than a man in a suit.

Now tell me you don't want to make babies with him. 

A man in a suit to a woman, is like how a woman in lingerie is to men. Irresistible. Males, you got your eye candy in my last post. Now it's our turn. 

You see, there's just something very appealing about a man in a suit. All dressed up and looking oh-so-classy. There's an aura about him that makes him almost unapproachable, yet you really can't help but want to. And, hopefully, you'll get to rip it off him some time later. A man who puts on a suit, pretty much puts himself in a league of his own.

Let's be honest, if these two people walked up to you and asked you for a date, who would you pick?

I'd pick the one on the left. No, really.
Yes. I know that the one on the right is Brad Pitt.
No. I don't care even if he did walk up to me and ask me out because he looks like an unkempt bum, and frankly, next to my friend over there, he looks horrible. 
Yes, I would willingly turn down Brad Pitt.
No, I am not mentally deranged. Neither do I have a fever.

Sex appeal aside, if a man in a suit came up and wanted to... Say propose a business to you, or sell you something, wouldn't you trust him a little more?

My point exactly.

Oh, and unless you're Mark Zuckerberg or Steve Jobs (or a person in the creative line-advertising, even then it's advisable for the said creative person to actually dress properly), please do not attempt to do any presentation in t-shirt and jeans. Unless you wish for the presentation to fail - miserably. 

Now, thanks to the help of two very good friends of mine, I'm going to stop blabbing for now and show you pictures of two very good looking men looking extremely delicious in suits. 

A man in a suit, done right.

This is Kevin. He's 22, and a straight A student who is currently taking up ACCA at Sunway University, right after he completed his degree at Taylor's University.
I am highly aware that the clothes he's wearing in the last three pictures of him aren't exactly suits, but he looks so good in the pictures, I had to include them. 
Hey, a man who dresses well is incredibly sexy too.
Thank you, Kevin, for letting me use your pictures for this entry.
Fun fact: When I saw him dressed like that, I found great difficulty in turning away. 

This is William. He's 20 and currently pursuing Foundation in Arts at HELP University. 
Special thanks goes to him, really. Because I had him do a full-on photoshoot for this entry. 
The poor guy was practically baking in his suit. 
But I'll be honest right here, I couldn't keep my eyes off him from the minute I saw him in the suit.
Because, really, men in suits - my weakness right there. 
Broad shouldered and well-built men, look especially delicious in them. 

So here's a tip for any man who's reading this entry:

If you're ever planning to impress a girl/get lucky, wear a suit, maybe grab a bouquet of roses and just show up at her doorstep. I doubt any girl would find it easy to turn you down. I know I wouldn't. 

Unless, well, there's a man wearing a military/navy uniform right next to the guy. But that's a story for another day.

There is some truth behind Barney Stinson's ever prominent advice. Ever wondered how he managed to sleep with so many women? I'm telling you, it's the suit. 

So guys, SUIT UP!

Till next time. Au revoir, lovelies. xoxo

Victoria's Secret Angel Of The Month: Alessandra Ambrosio

15 May 2012

Status: Unable to sleep
Time: 1AM

Aahh.. The Victoria's Secret Angels. Goddesses of perfection brought down from heaven to mankind - also the source of jealousy among many, many women. While I'm not exactly jealous of them (only sometimes. No really), I have to admit I admire them.  Come on, what woman wouldn't like to look drop dead gorgeous? If you don't, then tell me again why do you shop for nice clothes again, girls?

Which is why I've started out this - The Victoria's Secret Angel of the Month!

And this month, I've chosen my all-time favourite Angel - Alessandra Ambrosio.


Men, you may now drool. Women, you may not throw stones at your computer/laptop screen. Or her. 

A smokin' hot Brazillian model, Alessandra knew that she wanted to be a model since she was 8 years old. It all started when she spotted a picture of top covergirl Karen Mulder in a magazine. She wanted to be like her. She then took up modelling classes at 12. When she touched 14, she was one of 20 finalists for an elite modelling competition in Brazil.

Besides her perfectly sculpted body, there is something I love very much about Alessandra - her eyes. Piercing and absolutely mysterious, she makes me wonder if she were peering into my very soul, every time I look at her in pictures.
Best known for her work with Victoria's Secret, Alessandra was chosen to be the first spokesperson of their "PINK" line. She is currently one of Victoria's Secret Angels and has modeled for brands such as Armani Exchange, Ralph Lauren, and Christian Dior. 

Aside from modelling, Alessandra acts as an ambassador for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. 

She's also been selected by as one of the "Top 99 Most Desirable Women of 2008". She finished in second place.

And it's really no wonder.

But I've got bad news, men. In case you don't already know, she's married. With two kids. Sorry boys. The lucky man? Jamie Mazur, a Californian businessman.

Sorry, can't get pictures of baby number two. As far as I (and possibly the rest of the world know), little Noah Phoenix Ambrosio Mazur was born on May 7, 2012. Her first child, is Anja Louise Ambrosio Mazur.

Out of the many, many lingerie she's modelled in for Victoria's Secret, my favourite has to be this.

A sparkling navy and black bra, accessorised with 23-carat Swarovski Elements encrusted wings. She flaunted this during the 2011 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show at the Lexington Avenue Armory in NYC.

This, I felt, brought out the exotic air that she exudes. Making her almost goddess-like. Ever since I saw her in this, I was utterly gobsmacked. I can't take the image off my mind.

Here's the best part. Aside from a botched plastic surgery to pin back her ears a while back, everything else about Alessandra, is au naturale. Perfect skin, perfect body, gorgeous eyes and amazing features... Yup. While the rest of us are frantically dieting and exercising to keep in shape, her diet consists of "eating whatever I want", and she lost 40 pounds of her pregnancy weight in just two months. 

I'll bet you ladies are burning with jealousy right about now. 

Oh, and she's only 29.

Although she's already made a few appearances on TV and Film (and owning her very own Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame), Alessandra states that she wishes to keep climbing the acting ladder till she's able to work with her favourite directors, Quentin Tarantino and Tim Burton and her acting crush - Johnny Depp. 

I'm pretty sure we'll be seeing a lot of Alessandra then.

Till next time. Au revoir, beautiful people. xoxo
