Cookie cutter is boring. Attractiveness comes in all sorts of forms. In our latest edition of Bold Face we highlight a few gentleman who own their looks (and their eyewear!) and are all the more attractive for it…

Academy Award winner Adrien Brody makes a cameo as Salvador Dali in Woody Allen’s latest comedy “Midnight in Paris,” which debuted at this year’s Cannes Film Festival and is in theatres now. The youngest actor to ever win the Oscar for Best Actor in a Leading Role at 29, Brody portrays the surrealist painter with a perfect rendition of the man’s crazed looks and signature moustache. In real life however, Brody has been the spokesman for fashion brand Ermenegildo Zegna and has been named in several best dressed lists. That’s not hard to imagine when you peep the unconventionally handsome actor in his Lacoste L503S sunglasses from Marchon




Named one of People magazine’s "Sexiest Man Alive" and Australian GQ’s “Man of the Year” in 2008, Hugh Jackman’s attractiveness is not in question. Add in the information that he is a devoted father of two and husband to one very lucky woman for the last 15 years and his appeal just skyrockets. It’s also nice to see that despite all his fame he still makes time for date night with his wife. Here you can see the two of them strolling the streets of NYC’s Tribeca neighborhood the day after Father’s Day to do a little celebrating of their own. Good thing Jackman has those John Varvatos "Navigator" V757 sunglasses from Base Curve to keep the glare of the paparazzi’s flashes at bay…




Richard T. Jones, a handsome actor who has guest-starred on shows like “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Bones,” “Numb3rs” and “Las Vegas,” among others, finally gets his day in the spotlight as part of the ensemble cast in the upcoming television series “The Council of Dads.” The “Council of Dads” is currently in production and is based upon the book of the same name about a father who asks his close male friends to help raise his daughters when he is diagnosed with terminal cancer. In the pilot episode, tentatively scheduled to debut this fall, Jones wears the Cole Haan 972 optical frame from ClearVision. Though the Cole Haan 972 was part the 2010 collection, luckily the Cole Haan 990 is a very similar style…




Rob Lowe is preternaturally good looking and hasn’t seemed to age in any significant way despite his more than three decades long career. Still acting and still good looking enough to make grown women act like school girls, Lowe was recently in Cannes in a slightly different capacity – studio exec. He attended the film festival as one of the investors in Miramax, the studio formerly owned by the Walt Disney Company that suffered some financial difficulties last year. No doubt a savvy business man with a keen eye for a good story, he couldn’t lose his movie star good looks in his Gucci GG2898/s sunglasses from Safilo while making the festival rounds.
