Todd

In a rare example of departure from the hivemind, Thombeau and I have been having a discussion in his blog comments about our divergent opinions on the sexiness of fashion designer, turned furniture designer and photographer, Todd Oldham.



I'm in the 'pro' camp, so to speak. I'm not sure why. Maybe it's the nerd-chic look he always sports, possibly the tattoos, potentially because he's kind of slightly built and sort of compact, maybe it's the industry discounts and To The Trade access...




Jebus, easy on the filtering and soft focus. This is Todd Oldham not Liza or Bette.


Maybe it's his funky furniture designs....



Many, many years ago I saw a magazine spread with him, his cute husband (are they still together?) and their dogs, which made me kind of warm & fuzzy and bitterly jealous all at the same time. That's how I roll.

This post keeps disappearing from my blog and reappearing...

I'm not sure if it's a bit of weirdness on Blogger's behalf or they are casting judgement on my taste in men...

"Not Liza or Bette" LOL!!!

I don't dislike Mr. Oldham at all, it's just that after seeing him host "Top Design", I don't feel compelled to do him. Which doesn't mean I wouldn't!

I do, however, have a thing for Nate Berkus, Oprah's resident designer. He is a hottie, and not quite so...fey. Plus he gets the sympathy vote for losing his partner in the tsunami. I'd marry him in a heartbeat.

Mayhaps hot interior designers will be the next poll on Fabulon...

Hell, EVERYONE over 40...er 30, could use a little soft focus. I know I look better with it. But his is overkill.

At the risk of sounding like a total bitch, his teeth totally fuck it up for me; he needs some serious dental work.

OMG you guys, Nate Berkus is a stellar league all of his own. I've posted drooling entries about The Berk on numerous ocassions. J'adore!

Duane, if we ever meet I'm not opening my mouth at all. I was born in England. I have English Teeth... :X

Oh, I'm with you.
I have crushed on Todd for years.(like just about every female I know and more than half the men I know )
He's adorable.
