Hello, gorgeous. Yes, you. You there with the trim beard. You are looking fine today.
I’m not sure anyone else noticed this, but if you are a woman who enjoys a good looking man, then the Oscars was the place to look on Sunday night. And the predominant thing I noticed of all the delish boys, was the amazing amount of facial hair. It appears that trim, neat beards have come back into fashion. For years I would have never gone for the bearded look. I was not very thrilled with beards, mustaches and an over abundance of facial hair, which included long sideburns. Nope, I was not a facial hair person.
Ah, but recently I’ve had a change of heart. No more so than watching the Oscars. I have to say hands down Ben Affleck’s look was best, though I can’t decide between his director look, or his Argo look. Argo is definitely a 70’s look, and honestly, a very sexy look for Mr. Affleck. I would say a close second to the bearded look was Bradley Cooper. The combination with his suit and blue eyes made for a knockout.
Now, there are a lot of guys that try to do the three day shadow/stubble. STOP! Please, please stop. Either grow it out or shave it off. But quit looking like you just rolled out of bed. And then there is also the guys that grow it out to the super long look that reminds me of a mountain man. Stop that as well. Girls really don’t go for unkempt. We want clean and neat. That is what the boys of Oscar brought to us. Trim, neat, gorgeous.
I will just leave you all to enjoy the men of the Oscars. I could have added way more, but then I thought it might be overload. Oh, and on a side note, have you noticed that when the actors become a director, a beard is in order.
