I find so many of the high-profile male designers so very contrived and almost gaudy in their style. Most are decent-looking guys, but the way they dress is too calculated. Riccardo is obviously going for that butch-mechanic look with his forced-scruffiness which I find so amusing-- like he's only dressing that way to present an ironic image since he's a famous fashion designer, complete with mechanic's shirt; like "I fix cars after working with lace and embroideries all day".

Tom Ford and Oliver Rousteing are typical preening gays: One as a botoxed middle-aged Ken-doll, and the other as a younger version of that Ken-doll. Their too-carefully coiffed, manicured and impeccably-groomed looks turns me off completely-- it's like they can't sweat or have a hair or whisker out of place.

Olivier Theyskens and Joseph Altuzarra are the only two I find naturally handsome-- stunning even: Both have a timeless, classical masculinity and gentleness in their features that you'd find in classical paintings and sculptures. They both don't seem forced in their style and come across very laid-back and casual. Olivier Theyskens in particular, has such an angelic and vulnerable beauty that he is mesmerizing to look at. There's a pic up-thread, and I noticed how very beautiful, yet masculine his hands were...

i find tom ford and especially oliver rousteing both to be incredibly overrated both in their looks as well as their designs. they both seem kinda snooty and stuck-up and high maintenance, things i find unattractive in a man.

TREVOFASHIONISTO: Riccardo as a Bear?!?!??! Will he turn into a Walter Van Beirendonck-type?

The funny thing about Riccardo is that no one would look twice at him if he wasn't "Riccardo Tisci: Designer of Givenchy". The clerk at one of my local convenience store look a lot like him, down to the ragtag wardrobe, and no one's swooning over him when they're in there buying smokes.

happytrail: I've never read/heard anything from Olivier Rousteing, so I won't comment on him as a person, but since this is a thread about their looks, he just comes across as a typical rich, young trendy gay man-- verging on the flashy side.

Tom, I find incredibly talented and intelligent as a creative individual, not just as a designer; I adore A Single Man.

I can't stand the way he talks, and I can see how that comes off as pretentious, but he does back up that talk with the walk-- to me, anyways. On a purely superficial and shallow level, his perfectly groomed beard annoys me greatly; he just looks like he takes hours to get ready. I read he takes 4 baths a day.... That type of over-pampering and indulgence is a huge turn-off-- in men or women. And his forced and overly-practiced "steely but sexy" squint is like something out of Zoolander. Tom is intelligent, talented and a naturally handsome man, why he chooses to look so botoxed and overly-groomed is kind of a shame.

julien520: Never liked Marc Jacobs' designs nor his personality, which just makes his current incarnation as a dime-a-dozen porn model-type just gross, complete with the trashy tattoos. I find nothing attractive about him.

Another designer I should include in the "turn-on" category is Stefano Pilati. I don't know if he's been mentioned here, but he is very attractive. He's not a classically beautiful, handsome type like Joseph Altuzarra and Olivier Theyskens. It's his understated, quiet and naturally masculine demeanor, and very sophisticated and mature attitude I find genuinely sexy. He's not a caricature of a fashionable man, or a gay man, or a gay man in fashion-- he simply comes across as a refined and sophisticated gentleman.

^ the 4 baths a day ... if that were you or me, it would be clearly recognized for the ocd behavior it is instead, fashion magazines write articles about it like it's totally normal ... :p couldn't agree more about the over-grooming ... he could certainly learn something from haider ackermann. or should i say, haider could certainly teach him something ... on the grooming and the general shallowness fronts

^^^ So which came first: You're with your boyfriend because he resembles Stefano whom you really like-- or you like Stefano because he reminds you of your boyfriend?

fashionista-ta: I don't know how any working person has time for 4 baths a day...

High fashion is such a privilege, so it's easy to get lost in such extreme decadence-- still a huge turn-off though. I think your signature is a mantra we all can live by.

With the exception of Donatella, whom I think is really really really scary-looking rather than just gaudy, the majority of women designers are genuinely, impeccably stylish-- or at least restrained in their style; like Phoebe, Stella, Miuccia, Jil, Ann... What is it with some gay men that they have to be so garishly over-the-top???? Desperately seeking attention?

it's just a coincidence that my boyfriend looks like stefano...although stefano is totally the type of guy i'm attracted to (only more rugged)...and my dating record does tend to lean towards scruffy redheads or blondes, so...

I really feel like we should open a fashion bloggers hotness thread because I mean fashion bloggers are the ones constantly taking pictures of themselves to put on the web to be judged.

Hmmm I think just a lot of fashion designers make average people who obsess about fashion feel inadequate because they haven't got that "I look like a porn star, take drugs constantly and not only get away with it but capitalise on it" kind of look.


Buuuuuuuuut Rick Owens is awesome, not hot but looks awesome. And I really respect Raf annnddd I find Olivier Theyskens hot. But if I met any of these people in rl I probably would think differently because their egos would probably be way too big.
