Men on trend: The evolution of the bearded hunk, from Burt Reynolds to Ryan Gosling



He has clearly just rolled out of his log cabin to forage for berries and slap a tin coffee pot over a fire of loose twigs. His long hair and beard are wild, and he is dressed in things thermal and plaid, with barely laced, modified Kodiaks on his feet.

A maniac living off the grid? Hardly. This was the subject of a recent lush fashion spread in the Financial Times: a manly man “whose hardwearing frontier style is wildly on trend.” Total cost of the new Daniel Boone’s morning attire: $7,925, which includes his Gold Cybele necklace and Wright & Teague rings. Once, this beast-man would have been mistaken for a 1970s pot dealer, a sasquatch or our sexual antithesis. (I have heard so many women long for the smooth, hairless type that for years I assumed all women were looking for male/female hybrids.)

But now—as with another ’70s icon, Burt Reynolds lying bare-ass on a bearskin rug—the woodsman is a bona fide hunk, a highly masculine, testosterone-flaring, sexy wild thing who makes us look and feel so tiny and, well, pruned beside him.

“Very grateful” are the words Hollywood’s leading lady Angelia Jolie used to describe how she was feeling during her first red carpet appearance since undergoing a widely publicized double-mastectomy. The brunette beauty, who announced the news of her preventative procedures to the New York Times on May 14th, described her happiness in seeing the discussion about women’s health expanded since sharing her story. The news has made waves all over the world, encouraging women everywhere to consider their options. FASHION contributor Amy Verner was inspired to share her own experiences with the suddenly “trending topic” in article for the Globe and Mail.

Jolie, who has six children with fiancée Brad Pitt, lost her own mother to ovarian cancer in 2007. When the actress learned that she carried the faulty gene that increased her chances of breast cancer to 87 percent, she chose to take action to minimize her risk. “Life comes with many challenges”, the actress wrote in her New York Times article, “The ones that should not scare us are the ones we can take on and take control of.”

If you’ve been placing bets like we have on who’s going to design Angelina Jolie’s wedding dress, you better re-examine your choices. The actress is looking for a designer who is “not so obvious for designing wedding gowns”. The one she’s after? Rumor has it that it’s L’Wren Scott.

Scott, although not known for designing wedding gowns, is a regular go-to for celebrities such as Nicole Kidman and Sarah Jessica Parker when they hit up red carpet events, and according to a “friend” of Jolie’s the designer is “the one who understands her body the most.”
