Opening Ceremony grabbed writer/director Greg Luna and headed to the Ace Hotel & Swin Club in sunny Palm Springs to shoot a short film showcasing its SS11 men's collection. Model Steve Lee can't seem to find his shoes (the film's title loosely translates to "Street of Lost Shoes"), but we doubt he cares, since he gets to sport fantastic duds, including a custom medallion-print blazer with matching oxford and bow-tie, lightweight chinos, and summery stripes of every diameter. Available soon at O.C. storefronts and O.C. Online.
We have to agree with Entertainment Weekly: Don’t remake good movies; remake bad ones. So when we heard Hollywood was giving the redo treatment to one of the best films ever made, 1982's Conan the Barbarian, we were ready to go medieval. Then we remembered we made that proclamation when we were seven years old, so we decided to temper our outrage and adopt a wait-and-see attitude. But when it was revealed that former Baywatch star Jason Momoa would be reprising the role that made Arnold Schwarzenneger a star, we were sure our worst fears had been realized. Now comes the first teaser clip, and while our mind's aren't totally blown away, it looks like it has at least the potential to be a worthy successor. We'll find out for sure when it opens on August 19.
For many budding stylites, having your picture appear on street style websites like The Sartorialist or Street Peeper is flattering, but it's only a pitstop on the way to receiving the ultimate fashion compliment: Being snapped by the high priest of street style photographers, Bill Cunningham. The elusive and legendary lensman, 82, has been chronicling New York's chicest denizens in the New York Times's popular "On the Street" column for over three decades, turning everyone from ladies who lunch to Harlem b-boys into fashion role models. Now, photographer becomes subject in filmmaker Richard Press's award-winning documentary, Bill Cunningham New York, debuting March 16 in select theatres around the country.
This year's Oscar show was, quite literallty, a bit of a drag. Not even the sight of co-host James Franco decked out as Marilyn Monroe could make up for a night that was heavy on long, drawn-out speeches, boring production numbers, and predictable winners. Fortunaltely, the presenters and nominees gave us plenty of distraction. While plenty of guys stuck to the classics (Jake Gyllenhaal and Colin Firth), there were just as many who gave us something to talk about. Up for debate were the appropriateness of Russell Brand's navy-black tuxedo and patterened shirt, all-black (Christian Bale) and all-white formalwear, jumbo satin bowties, and whether or not it's time for Darren Aronofsky to finally shave off that hipster moustache. See all the evening's looks after the jump.
Sometimes we miss formality. Take, for instance, going to the cinema. These days, you know a movie's ending once the guy sitting in front of you grabs his stuff and heads for the door before the credits even roll. But back in the day, movie studios took the courtesy of actually telling you the show was over with beautifully designed end titles. And we're not the only ones to appreciate their practicality, bold fonts, and retro appeal: We found at least half-a-dozen Flickr galleries devoted to them. Here's a look at some of our favorites.

Colin Firth is probably sweating right now, and we don't blame him. Putting together the perfect outfit for a black tie affair is always nerve-wracking, but when it's the Academy Awards and over 100 million people around the world are watching, the stakes are even higher. Sure, the Best Actor nominee has Tom Ford on his side, but he might do well to take a look back at his stylish predecessors for some golden inspiration. We've compiled some of our favorite men's Oscar looks to help him out.
Heartbeats, the lastest from Canadian wunderkind Xavier Dolan (that's him in the poster), opens today in select theatres nationwide. The 21-year-old actor-director's sophomore film--a highly stylized tale of two friends, Marie (Monia Chokri) and Francis (Dolan), who obsessivlely vie for the affections of the handsome Nicolas (Niels Schneider)--premiered to standing ovations at last year's Cannes Film Festival and has some calliing it a modern day Jules et Jim.

Shiloh Fernandez, star of the upcoming film Red Riding Hood, a modern-day re-telling of the classic children's fairy tale, is Nylon Guys' big, bad cover boy for its March issue. Inside, the 27-year-old actor talks about watching himself onscreen, how he lost the part of Edward Cullen in Twilight, and why he hates American Apparel. (Photo: Marvin Scott Jarrett)
