Professor Brian Cox Shamed In GQ’s Worst Dressed Men Of 2014 List


Ozwald Boateng Brian Cox

Professor Brian Cox has been named as one of the least stylish celebrities of the year in a recent list released by men's' mag, GQ. The physicist and BBC presenter of such programmes as Wonders of the Solar System probably won't be bothered about such a nomination but it seems that his penchant for parka jackets and Berghaus technical clothing has seen the prof score low for style instinct.

What's Not To Like About Brian Cox's Style?

However, it seems that a few well-cut tuxes and neat bowties have saved the scientist from the shame of being GQ's worst dressed man. That particular accolade went to designer Ozwald Boateng who ironically had previously instructed GQ how the modern man can achieve style.

Pet Shop Boys Star Leads Charge To Save Fabled London Venue


Pet Shop Boys Neil Tennant Ozwald Boateng

Pet Shop Boys star Neil Tennant and fashion mogul Ozwald Boateng have joined forces in a bid to halt the demolition of London's fabled Earls Court arena.

Developers, who have taken over the west London site, are planning to knock it down as part of a major revamp, but they are facing opposition from locals and stars who love the Art Deco exhibition and concert venue.

They want the old place to be restored, not replaced and in a letter to the Evening Standard newspaper, Tennant, Boateng and comedian Tracey Ullman are calling on the developers to rethink their plans.

A Man's Story Review


OK
By following British designer Ozwald Boateng over 12 years, filmmaker Bonicos vividly captures his subject's personality on screen while recounting his rather astounding life story. But the film remains oddly dry and superficial.

Inspired by Armani, Boateng emerged from his childhood in riot-torn 1981 Brixton to become the first black tailor on Saville Row. As the creative director of Givenchy, his influence spread out through the fashion world, even as he juggled his work with his own label and two strained marriages. By 2005, he was at the centre of the Oscar red carpet, teaching American men to stop dressing like boys and reinventing the suit with shape and colour. He was awarded an OBE from the Queen in 2006.

Welsh singer Tom Jones has been awarded a knighthood for services to music in British monarch Queen Elizabeth II's annual New Year Honours list.

The 65-year-old, from Pontypridd in Wales, began his musical career in 1963 singing in TOMMY SCOTT AND THE SENATORS. Sir Tom has since sold millions of albums around the world.

Veteran jazz musician JOHN DANKWORTH, who has worked with legends including Nat King Cole and Ella Fitzgerald, was also knighted.

Designer Hopes For Bond To Return To His British Roots

Slick secret agent James Bond has been deemed in need of a makeover - and
British designer Ozwald Boateng believes he's just the man to do it.


Savile Row designer Boateng, who has dressed such actors as SAMUEL
JACKSON, Russell Crowe, Daniel Day-Lewis and Will Smith and most recently
Laurence Fishburne and ADRIAN and Neil Rayment for The Matrix Reloaded
premieres - thinks 007,
currently portrayed by Pierce Brosnan, should return to his London roots.


He says, "Traditionally Bond wears Savile Row suits. But Pierce has been
wearing Italian suits. We need to get him back to Savile Row. But I'm
optimistic."
