Watch! Captain America: The First Avenger Trailer

I'm a total comic book nerd and I'm not always a fan of big screen interpretations of my favourite comic books, but the new Captain America film starring Chris Evans and Hugo Weaving looks decent. However, one thing that kind of perplexes me about the movie Marvel universe is the fact that Chris Evans played the Human Torch in the Fantastic Four movies and now he's playing Steve Rogers (aka. Captain America) - are we supposed to forget that the Fantastic Four movies ever happened? Regardless, I'm sure I'll end up at the theatre to see this one, how about you?

T by Alexander Wang Spring 2011 Look Book

This is the look book for Alexander Wang's T by Alexander Wang Spring 2011 collection. I'm a huge Alexander Wang fan, but I really wasn't wowed by this collection. However, on that note, I do love all of the hooded pieces and the shorts look super comfy.

Sexy Gucci Chelsea Boots

These Chelsea boots by Gucci are total SEX! The criss-crossed strap detail reminds me of that iconic bondage collection that Helmut Lang did in 2003 which so many designers have emulated and drawn inspiration from. You could easily dress these up or down - FABULOUS! They are available now from Mr. Porter.

Lady Gaga in i-D Magazine

This is the Lady Gaga story from the most recent issue of i-D magazine. She wears Thierry Mugler and is styled by Nicola Formichetti. Gaga looks great and the clothes are stunning, but I actually prefer the Rick Genest shoot from Hommes Vogue Japan better. Don't get me wrong, Lady Gaga totally looks amazing in this spread, but Genest has a je ne sais quoi quality about him that I just can't seem to get enough of.

Lanvin Scuba High-Tops

I'm absolutley in lurrrrrrve with these scuba high-tops from Lanvin! Sleek, sexy, minimal, elegant and oh so chic - these trainers can instantly breathe fabulosity into any outfit. The back zipper and ankle strap details totally take these sneakers to the next level. Yes please!

Rick Genest Shines in Mugler

I'm loving everything about this recent Vogues Hommes Japan editorial spread featuring Rick Genest, styled by Nicola Formichetti and shot by Mariano Vivanco. Genest's bold and edgy look effortlessly commands attention and forces your eyes to consume all that the imagery has to offer. The clothes (all by Mugler) are gorgeous and the styling is simple and effective. I want all of it! Genest and Formichetti are definitely making their mark on pop culture and fashion, and I'm totally a huge fan.

Delicious M: Brgr

Earlier this month I checked out a new gourmet burger bar here in Toronto called M:Brgr. Located in the centre of the theatre district, this snazzy dining establishment is the perfect destination for an after-work bite or a post-show nibble.

The menu consists of delicious gourmet burger bar type fare and some of the delectable delights featured on the menu include: mini bite-sized grilled cheese sandwiches, pogos on a stick, vegetarian sliders, beef sliders, gourmet macaroni and cheese, gourmet french fries, and tuna wrapped in lettuce leaves. The sliders were out of this world and the tuna wrapped in lettuce leaves was absolutely decadent. The ambiance of the restaurant is hip and modern (much like the clientele) with lots of effortless style oozing throughout the decor.

Gourmet burger bars are definitely up and coming as major foodie destinations and M:Brgr is totally leading the way with its tasty menu and fresh contemporary dining approach. If you've never been to a burger bar before, I would definitely recommend checking out M:Brgr - I promise you won't be disappointed!
