‘Cause Every Girl with the Good Taste Gene is Crazy ‘Bout Him . . .


Crazy about a sharp-dressed Richard Armitage, that is. ūüėȬ† Word is that Mr. A has done a photo shoot with Esquire Magazine. No idea when it will appear . . . but it’s something to which we can look forward. At least this is a¬†publication that has a good chance of staying in business long enough for the photos to actually be published! ūüėČ And the magazine isn’t ridiculously pricy (FAULT Magazine, anyone?)

We don’t know what the stylist will have picked out for his attire. Casual, dressy, perhaps a mix of both.¬†Part of it depends on where they choose to shoot it, of course.¬†Hoping there are no cable knit sweaters with short sleeves. *shudder*

At any rate, I agree with the sign below. Richard in a suit (or tux!) is quite an impressive and inspiring sight.

As the song says, “Every girl’s crazy ’bout a sharp-dressed man . . .”



The beard, the curls, the suit, the smile—it¬†all adds up to “yummmm.”

This remains one of my favorite behind-the-scenes photos of him.¬† Love the fact he’s cracking up over something. Wonder what?


Couldn’t help but think of his “Pete the banker” persona from S7 of “Spooks” with this Canadian premiere ensemble.

OK, not a suit, exactly, but DEFINITELY looking sharp! *thud*


He looks so earnest and sweet and handsome speaking here . . .


Looks positively royal in this pose, doesn’t he?? And he’s so good to his fans–crouching to get into the photo with them. ūüėČ


And I know a lot of fans don’t care for the waxed wool suit, but I personally thought for the Tokyo venue, it rocked—and so did HE!


Awwwwww—-a handsome, talented,¬†generous¬†darling of a son any mum would surely be proud to call her own!


Again, not a fan favorite, this suit, but I personally¬†loved the colors in the fabric and tie–made his sapphire¬†eyes pop–and this moment.¬† Oh. That downright saucy¬†expression . . . and the fact his jacket is pushed aside to give us a tantalizing glimpse of his strong thigh and¬†the¬†callipygian curves of his backside. Let’s just say that it works for ME.

Of course, Mr. A looks¬†fantastic in his more¬†casual garb, too.¬† Hoodies, cardis,¬†leather jackets, plaid shirts,¬†T-shirts and jeans–he rocks it all. And, as we know from TH, he really does¬†look great wearing a burlap sack! ūüėȬ†¬† Can’t wait to see new pics of you stylin’ and profilin’ Mr. A!

Here’s to RA’s talented stylist: praise for Ilaria Urbinati from one of her clients


From InStyle.com, Vampire Diaries actress Nina Debrov on her collaboration with stylist Ilaria Urbinati:

¬†‚ÄúIf something doesn‚Äôt work, even if it‚Äôs a big designer look, she‚Äôs not going to make me wear it just because. It‚Äôs whatever I feel best in and what is event-appropriate. That‚Äôs why I love her so much.‚ÄĚ

I have to believe this is Ilaria’s philosophy with all her clients: wearing what they feel best wearing and what is event-appropriate. And I would say that proved very successful for RA, who was definitely “wearing the clothes instead of the clothes wearing him” during TH¬†press junket and various red carpet appearances.¬† On each occasion, he looked comfortable, confident, relaxed and oh, so handsome.

There was attire¬†more cutting-edge for Tokyo, for example–that¬†shiny blue waxed wool suit–and a classic tux that harkened back to film stars of old¬†for the London royal¬†premiere.

The black hoodie and leather for NYC–youthful and a little edgy.¬†We adored those English schoolboy ¬†vest-and-tie looks for press conferences– and who among us can forget the¬† retro look of the cardigan in Canada? Traditional and sexy and cuddly all at the same time.¬† Thank¬† you, Ilaria. We love you, too!



The clothes make the man even *more* magnificent. Thanks, Ilaria.



New York premiere

I’m tired. Didn’t sleep last night and haven’t napped any today. So I’m¬†going to keep it simple and¬†share¬†just a few¬†photos of Mr. A looking dashing, dazzling and delicious in his duds as styled by¬†lovely and talented¬†Ilaria¬†Urbinati. Richard Armitage appeared relaxed, comfortable, stylish and confident throughout the grueling press¬†junket and¬†red carpet appearances.

By the way, I¬†understand that Ilaria¬†dressed no less than 21 celebs during¬† this week’s awards¬†ceremonies madness, including Academy Award¬†Best Actor nominee Bradley Cooper and the lovely Nina Debrov of Vampire Diaries.
