The recent trajectory of Canadian star Taylor Kitsch’s career is testament to his staying power: after a duo of box office misfires, Kitsch has a series of upcoming movies that are sure to put dubious criticisms to rest. Known best for his role as Tim Riggins, the brooding running back in Friday Night Lights, Kitsch sprung to fame on the big screen for his role as fan favourite Gambit in X-Men Origins: Wolverine and as drug kingpin Chon in Oliver Stone’s Savages. Not one to dwell on his career’s more minor moments, Kitsch maintains that he will continue to choose roles in movies he cares about, regardless of the risk factor. Two such films he has slated for 2014 include The Normal Heart, which focuses on the early ‘80s HIV/AIDS crisis in New York City (costarring Mark Ruffalo and Julia Roberts), and Canadian comedy The Grand Seduction, in which Kitsch plays a big-city doctor who descends upon a Maritime village in order to secure a factory contract and save the town from financial ruin.

In an exclusive interview with Men’s FASHION, Kitsch opens up about upcoming films, his love of laying low in his adopted hometown of Austin, Texas, and his foray into a new side of moviemaking with his upcoming directorial debut.   Read more »

Tailors tend to breed talented offspring. Dries Van Noten, Domenico Dolce, Emmanuel Ungaro—they’re all cut from families of exacting cloth. Menswear designer Antonio Azzuolo is part of that club, having been raised by two in Montreal. After years in the business (15 in creative roles at Ralph Lauren, Hermès, Gap and Kenneth Cole, and six at the helm of his own bespoke line) he launched womenswear for Fall 2014, bringing old school tailoring techniques into new territory for next season. In his post-show Q&A with ROM curator Alexandra Palmer last night in Toronto, Azzuolo spoke of adaptation—something he’s clearly done in this collection. His full canvas method (all the handiwork goes on below the surface, allowing for the outside to maintain perfect shape) was applied to both men’s and women’s belted coats. Wool culottes were worn overtop loose-fitting trousers for understated statement making effect. Meanwhile, a sixties mod feel was woven through, with graphic alpaca sweaters done in magenta, maroon and white with unfinished hems which were layered over perfect white shirts.

Jared Leto’s beauty secret: His Oscars hair was all about the second-day style

If you’re looking for volume or planning on styling an updo, chances are you know that second-day hair is the way to go. Freshly washed hair can look too squeaky-clean and doesn’t hold its shape as well, plus there’s also a gritty, cool-girl factor that only second-day hair can provide. However, should you think this is a hair secret only used by women, think again. According to Vidal Sassoon hairstylist Chase Kusero, Jared Leto’s winning hair at the 2014 Oscars was all about the second-day style.

Should you want to copy the look (hey, those beachy waves would look just as good on a lady as they do on Leto) or get your guy on the edgy, long hair train, here’s how it was done. The night before the Academy Awards, Chase prepped Leto’s wet hair with Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Waves Primer Spray and Pro Series Waves Pomade. Read more »

Karl Lagerfeld promotes his bodyguard to be the face of his latest menswear campaign


Karl Lagerfeld Bodyguard Model

Personal assistant to Karl Lagerfeld may seem like a dream job to many, but the job description may be a little more complex than you’d expect. From bodyguard to actor, Sébastien Jondeau has worked for Lagerfeld for 14 years and moves in and out of the spotlight depending on his boss’s needs. With multiple runway stints under his belt and a role in the recent Chanel short-film starring Keira Knightley, it’s only natural that his next assignment would be to front Lagerfeld’s new menswear campaign. Yes, you heard right: WWD reports that the 38-year-old boxing enthusiast (who happens to be the perfect combination of tall, dark and handsome) stars in both a new photo campaign and a short video clip, a teaser for which was released today.

Leave it to Prada to always find the cool. Following its much praised menswear ads and runway show starring Gary Oldman, Garett Hedlund, Willem Dafoe and Jamie Bell last fall, the brand has captured three of this year’s buzziest actors in its latest campaign for Fall 2013. The ads star Christoph Waltz, the two-time Tarantino Oscar winner (most recently for his comically twisted role as Dr. King Shultz in Django Unchained), Ben Whishaw, a rising British actor, and Ezra Miller, the baby-faced breakout star of Perks of Being a Wallflower.

Shot by photographer David Sims in London, the New Wave-inspired shots are said to introduce a “duality of wit and style at the heart of the modern man’s attitude to dressing.” Each of the three actors capture aspects of Prada’s Fall 2013 collection—Waltz the elegance, Whishaw the carefree alt charm and Miller, the youthful burst.
