it comes complete with a wine/champagne glass holder (to hold your Ayala Cuvee Rose Nature) and candle holder. Brilliant. The only thing missing is the hunky model sitting tubside feeding you chocolate covered strawberries. Whatever, a girl can dream…

I can’t think of any possible contenders at the moment, so we’ll let Lapo Elkann take the title (for now). These photos were part of an editorial in the June issue of Vogue. Elkann had most of his wardrobe shipped to Brazil for the shoot and he styled himself. Why can’t more men be this bold when it comes to their taste in fashion. Color=amazingness.

While we’re at it…we should talk shades. Elkann launched his Italia Independent line of sunglasses this week…Barney’s is carrying them…the $1325 carbon fiber ones are already sold out (only 1000 were made)…they do have less expensive $395 acetate versions available. Also, there was mention in DWR of his company acquiring a “historic italian brand” which will be announced next month…hmmm any guesses as to which one??

Also in DWR…the top ten men’s luxury brands:

1. Brioni
2. Armani
3. Ermenegildo Zegna
4. Ferragamo
5. Canali
6. Dolce & Gabbana
7. Prada
8. Tom Ford (wow…already making the list!!)
9. Versace
10. Burberry

Recent research from Dartmouth College has found that daydreaming, procrastinating, gossiping and napping all have added health benefits.
Who knew?
I did.

According to their studies, daydreaming lets you focus on issues that may not be relevant at that moment, but have some meaning and is a form of relaxation that releases beneficial endorphins…so forgive yourself for spacing off during that boring conference call and visualizing the polish color wall at the nail salon, thinking about what “Flashbulb Fuschia” will look like on your toes, and whether or not it will coodinate with your new Missoni dress that you plan on wearing this weekend…it’s good for you.
