Jewish American actress Scarlett Johansson has been named the sexiest woman alive for the second time by Esquire, the men’s lifestyle magazine said on Monday
Ah, summer. Love, sun, royalty and the French Rivera. At least that’s how it is for some. For others, it’s more like frizz, sweat, and general unpleasantness.
The jury is in, the people have spoken, and once again, Mila Kunis has come out on top.
A.J. Jacobs experimented with myriad regimes hoping to turn back the clock on a dangerously sedentary lifestyle. He came up with ‘chewdaism.’
Twin peacocks leaning over an “O & S” monogram form the logo of newly launched men’s clothing line Ovadia & Sons. The birds also make apt stand-ins for Ariel and Shimon Ovadia, the 27-year-old, yeshiva-educated twins who founded the label in July. Riding a wave of fawning press from heavy-hitters like Esquire and GQ magazines, the clothes-loving sons of an Israeli-born childrenswear magnate have already sold out several runs of their handmade suits (priced between $1,695–$2,095) and shirts ($45–$345); they also offer ties ($110–$135) and footwear ($295–$450). Ariel Ovadia talked to the Forward from the Manhattan home office he shares with his brother.
If you thought Israeli supermodel Bar Rafaeli’s appearance on the cover of Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue in 2007 stirred things up, wait until you see this: The Huffington Post just released photos of Refaeli’s cover for next month’s Esquire — and this time there’s not even a bikini. Completely nude and covered in what seems to be the beginning of a Stephen King story, the cover takes objectification to a new level. Refaeli’s (bizarrely orange) body is reduced to scrap paper. Words are scrawled on her in messy handwriting, and one word has even been scratched out and rewritten. But, as they say, sex sells, and if this serves to increase the world’s awareness of Israeli hotties, so be it.
