Man in Style: James Marsden

Man in Style: James Marsden

James Marsden’s been hitting the publicity circuit recently to promote his new film The Best of Me, and looking every bit the handsome gentleman in the process.

In fact, the gorgeous 45(!)-year-old actor has quite the history of looking sharp on the red carpet as well as walking down the street.

Here’s a look at how he turned heads while as star rose over the past few years.

(Warning: There may be a hot beach pic to ogle too).

Key & Peele call out Family Matters writers decades later

When Family Matters premiered in 1989 as a Perfect Strangers spinoff, it was a family sitcom centred around good ol’-fashioned values that fit perfectly within ABC’s TGIF lineup.

But when Steve Urkel went from guest star to series regular and eventual inventor of a transformation chamber with inexplicable and unrealistic powers, the show lost whatever semblance of reality on which it was originally based.

This past week, Key & Peele aired a hilarious sketch that takes the writers and Steve Urkel to task for the shift. It rings so true for critics, Reginald VelJohnson, and any viewers (like me) that found Urkel annoying

Jo Marie Payton, who left the show in the middle of its last season allegedly because she was fed up with Urkel, must especially love this sketch.

Five ways to wear a grey suit

Five weddings, one suit, five looks.

After a few years of friends’ and family members’ weddings gradually increasing in number, 2014 saw the mayhem reach a fever pitch. I had five weddings to attend between January and September 2014, which meant I had to pull together five distinct looks. (It would be just plain embarrassing to be spotted on social media wearing the same ensemble to to separate weddings within the same year).

I spent considerable time and effort a couple years ago shopping for a new suit, and I knew I didn’t want to do that again. The one I found was a light grey slim-fitting number from Zara, which still looks sharp (if I do say so myself). So I decided I’d stick with it, and wear it into the ground over 2014.

With that major decision made, it meant I could have fun with the rest of it. At the end of the day, matching a shirt, tie and accessories is relatively low-stress, particularly when you’re merely attending a wedding as a guest.

So how did I work that grey Zara suit five ways? Let’s take a look.

Taking in the new View

With Rosie O’Donnell’s return to the View earlier this month, it was a given I was going to tune in again and see how the show fared. It’s no coincidence the last season I watched regularly was when O’Donnell moderated back in 2006 – 2007.

To make things even more interesting this time around, O’Donnell joined an almost brand new panel on the show. While Whoopi Goldberg still reigns over the proceedings, Rosie Perez and Nicolle Wallace were named at the last minute as the show’s new cohosts, replacing Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd, who were let go at the end of last season.

We’re now three weeks into the new season, and I’m happy to say I’m back to watching this chatfest daily. How do I feel about all the changes for season 18? And how are each of the hosts faring? Read on for my thoughts.
