Dressing John Stamos for Awards Season

31 Jan

Grandfathered

It’s awards season in Hollywood, and Greek-American actor John Stamos just won Favorite Actor in a New Series for Grandfathered at the 42nd People’s Choice Awards! At the January 6, 2016, event, he hammed it up for the crowd, stopping to take selfies with adorable young fans. He looked quite suave in a black velvet suit accented with a red pocket square.

He seems to be a fan of the red pocket square.

He wore the red pocket square again recently, still with an all black suit, though this time it wasn’t velvet and there was a tie involved. (William Shatner was also involved.)

He wore it better with a tux a few weeks prior to the People’s Choice Awards when he attended The 67th Emmys Governors Ball. He told People:

“All dolled up and sporting Frank Sinatra’s pocket square. Given to me by his manager, the great Tony O.”

Okay, if I had a pocket square that once belonged to Frank Sinatra, I might wear it out as often as possible too!

But the pocket square might be getting a bit too ubiquitous. I mean, it’s kind of like how fellow Greek-American Jeffrey Eugenides became so known for his vest that someone started a Twitter account for Eugenides’ vest. Is someone going to start @StamosPocketSquare?

Even The Washington Post commented on it, though that time he wasn’t wearing Sinatra’s red pocket square but a different one.

I think it’s time for John Stamos to find a new accessory! If you follow him on Instagram, you know the man looks good in a pair of glasses. I’d like to see Stamos rock a pair of glasses at his next awards show. I’d recommend these Greek Handmade Frames:

It would be great to see more Greek-American stars using their influence to help Greek and Greek-American companies, particularly during the Greek economic crisis.

John Stamos strikes me as a man who can pull off a piece of jewelry. I say, ditch the red pocket square and wear a piece of striking jewelry. After seeing Konstantino’s exquisite jewelry at the welcome reception for the GABBY Awards, I would pick a piece from his Byzantium collection for Stamos to wear:

And you know how his Full House (and now Fuller House!) character Uncle Jesse was obsessed with his hair? I would obviously have Christo, the Greek-American hairstylist behind Curlisto, do Stamos’ hair. Curlisto did hair for the runways for the Greek American Fashion Week, and he has an entire line of men’s haircare products:

On to the fashion! For clothing, John Varvatos is a Greek-American clothing designer who creates stylish looks. For an awards show, Stamos could wear a grey John Varvatos Cotton Shirt.

Over the shirt, I would add some sophistication with this black Cotton Vest with Piping Detail:

And over that, I’d layer Varvatos’ black Cotton Jacquard Jacket:

For pants, a simple black pair of pants like Varvatos’ Wool Blend Pant would do nicely:

When Tommy John approached me about dressing a Greek star for the red carpet this awards season, I thought to myself:

Really? But can’t I just leave him … undressed?

I mean, he did just recently share a picture of himself on Instagram in his undies!

And then there was that time in 2014 when the Oikos spokesman showed off his underwear with the Greek yogurt logo on it.

Why not just leave him in Tommy John’s underwear Second Skin Square Cut:

Coming Soon: Greek American Fashion Week

22 Aug

GAF

Last year’s Greek American Fashion Show was so inspired that this year, they’re putting on an entire WEEK for Fashion Week:

The Greek America Foundation is hosting “Greek American Fashion Week” September 4-8, 2013 with events taking place throughout New York City.  The week culminates in a Greek American Runway Show at Studio450 and after party at Meli Restaurant on September 6, 2013.

Greek American Fashion Week events include “Greek Fashion’s Night Out” and multiple cocktail hours at venues such as Anassa Taverna. At the main runway event, guests will be dazzled by cutting-edge fashion designs with Greek and American entertainment, a high-end silent auction and gift bags to cap off the evening. All events showcase emerging and established North American fashion designers of Greek descent in an effort to help them forge relationships with those in the fashion industry, assisting them with advancement of their careers.

In addition, renowned menswear designer John Varvatos will be honored with an award for his exceptional contribution to the fashion industry.

A host of supporters and friends will be on hand for the weekend events, including several prominent members from the fashion and retail industry as well as celebrity fashion bloggers.

Proceeds from this program will benefit the programs of the Greek America Foundation, with a particular focus on the creation of a scholarship for a student pursuing fashion design. The Greek America Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to promoting, preserving and perpetuating the Greek culture, history and heritage in North America.

Tickets will go on sale August 12, available for purchase from the Greek America Foundation’s website (www.greekamerica.org).
