When People crowned Johnny Depp as the Sexiest Man Alive (2009), thousands of Twi-hards lost their shit wings…and also sent out their anger in shape of hate-mail to the likes of Lainey Gossip. Did you read her article? Did you read those emails? So much ignorance and hate! And Lainey says that those women are not in their teens…no, those are grown freaking women! For some of those, getting a life might be a tad too late, but seeking help of mental professionals would be just fitting.
On to Johnny. If anyone deserves this title unconditionally, irrevocably, impenetrably, heterogeneously, gynecologically, and disreputably, it’s Johnny Depp. Who else can make a weird eye-lined pirate sexy as hell? Who else oozes sexiness even when he looks grungy and unkempt? Sexiest Man Alive? Johnny Depp! And though a part of me was hoping that Colin Firth would take the title this year, I am perfectly happy with their choice. Thank you, People Mag! Thank you for not giving it to Pattinson!

Saw new photos of Clive Owen yesterday, and almost made him Wednesday Candy for the second week in a row. And then, I read a Lainey Gossip post about Colin Firth. If you love Colin, these two articles are mandatory. You have to read these…you’ll thank me (or Lainey) later. Was not able to watch the clip, in which Colin speaks Italian, but I’m sure it’ll make me drool with adoration.
It’s a bummer that I didn’t get to see him at TIFF this year. He didn’t show to the Dorian Gray premiere, and I missed The Single Man one. The way he wears his suits…it’s like he was made to wear them! The frame, the build – Colin is perfection in suits! And in my books, Colin Firth trumps Tom Ford any day. I’ll take witty over metro every time. What about witty metros, you ask? I prefer my men…manly, thank you very much!

To say that last week was eventful would be a gross understatement. A couple of events to cover for the blog, TIFF, NYC Fashion Week, Jo’s bachelorette party, and le boyfriend’s Dragonboat competition. Was it fun? Yes, yes, and yes! But also extremely exhausting…How I survived it? Have no clue. But a Ewan McGregor sighting at the Men Who Stare at Goats TIFF premiere probably helped in making me feel a little better. Yes, he’s short, but that smile is just as cute and captivating as it is in movies. The Clooney? Not my type – never was “gaga” over the most eligible forever-bachelor, but I do get the hype (very, very handsome). Also saw Ben Barnes, much better looking than on screen, great smile, great hair, seemed very nice and down to earth. But the crowd wasn’t there for Ben, they wanted Colin Firth, who was held up in Venice for some reason, at the great displeasure of the many Bridget Jones’ Diary fans (mostly older ladies). I think Colin was supposed to attend Tom Ford’s Single Man premiere, but I’m not sure if he ever did.
Special thanks goes out to Steve Murakami, who was kind enough to provide Style Blog with photos of Ewan and George, when my shots weren’t up to par. Thank you so much, Steve! The photos are amazing! Please don’t abuse Steve’s kindness – don’t use the below photos without his permission.
Now if only I got to meet Clive Owen, my summer would officially be complete. Is it ok to scream “Clive, I want to have your babies” in full view of TV cameras and random passersby?
More photos after the jump!
