Marc Jacobs was spotted vacationing last weekend on the Spanish island of Formentera, and the serial dater was not, we repeat, was not wearing a wedding band.  He was with his Brazilian boyfriend though, which is  good sign to what seems to have become a stable dating life.  Oh yeah, Kate Moss was there, too.

100% Animalisti, an Italian animal rights group, is on the attack against Giorgio Armani for his agreement to design a fighters costume for famed bull fighter Cayetano Rivera Ordóñez for the historic Goyesca de Ronda bullfight next month.  Considering he's partaken in ad campaigns to urge Italians not to neglect their pets, they are calling him an animal cruelty supporter and a hypocrite.  Does he deserve some slack for the cultural relevance of the event?  Or just because it's so hard to say no to rhinestones and tight pants?  It's a toss up.

Indulge, my dears, in Hedi Slimane's finally released spread for V Man, featuring their V Man Ford Model Contest winner, Petey Wright, who, in my highly honed opinion, can certainly do no Wrong. [The Cut]

Here's a blog bit on what Kanye West had to say about being honored on Vanity Fair's Best Dressed List: "I've sat in front of this computer for 20 minutes trying to put into
words how I feel … who all to thank … and how to celebrate … this is a
true honour and I am humbled by it."  After being snubbed for all those music awards time and time again, he had to use that speech somewhere I guess. [Kanye's Blog]

Because sometimes you just want to be a little masculine, there's Engineered Garments, who's revamping of typical American workwear gives you the comfortable yet durable look with an extra bit of style--think that perfect Champion hoodie, but cut slimmer to compliment that physique you've worked so hard to attain.  [Material Interest]
