Fred J. DeVito is one classy man.  Always.  Not just inside, as a human being, but he’s also a classy dresser.  Here he is at the Debbie Dickinson curated Art Exhibition at the Carl Hansen & Son Showroom event for visionary working artists – Fresh –  on May 20, 2023, see blog above.   He not only came to fetch me from the Upper West Side to the Upper East Side, but he also made sure I got home, door to door, after the event before going to his home on the other side of Central Park.

He is wearing a Tom Ford shirt, Tom Ford pants, a Brooks Brothers seersucker sport coat, an Agnes B belt, Belgium shoes. To see Fred’s Street Scene Blog, CLICK HERE

Met Museum Battle Versailles Fashion - 2022

One of the stand-out rooms at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s “In America: An Anthology of Fashion” exhibition in the American Wing is the “Battle of Versailles” room – where Tom Ford has reimagined what happened in 1973, when the top French designers faced off against the top American designers. It is great fun, not captured as well as it could be with my iPhone.  This is Part 2 of the Costume Institute’s exhibition exploring fashion in America and it opens for the public on Saturday, May 7.  Part 1, “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion” will continue in the Anna Wintour Costume Center at The Met until September 5, 2022, when both exhibitions will close.  To see 36 photos of the Exhibition, CLICK HERE

Lucky Blue Smith Top Male Model - 2015

Lucky Blue Smith Photos

Lucky Blue Smith, named in 2015 “The Model of the Moment” by Teen Vogue, known for his platinum hair and being gorgeous, not just to teens, with whom he has a huge following on social media. The blue punk look, top left, was photographed when he was 16.  The It Boy, a Mormon, is now 17 years old.  Discovered at age 10, signed with Next, a top international model agency at 12, Lucky Blue Smith has worked with most of the top designers, most notably Tom Ford, and he appears in the Tom Ford/Lady Gaga disco dream video for Spring RTW 2016 (scroll down this blog to view the great video.) He is also a drummer in the surf-rock band The Atomics, with his three siblings. Expect to see much more of this fab face. I can see movies on the blue horizon …
