Anthony Mackie
is a true renaissance man. He is one of those actors whose face you instantly recognize – he’s been in movies like 8 Mile, The Hurt Locker and The Adjustment Bureau and will be on the big screen again this fall along side Anna Faris in the rom-com What’s Your Number? and Hugh Jackman in Reel Steel, a boxing drama set in the future. But that’s not all that's on this man's busy schedule. Mackie has spent most of this year in Brooklyn, building out NoBar, his New Orleans by way of Bed-Stuy neighborhood bar, where he will be will be bartending, cooking and mingling with locals when not off shooting on location. Here is Mackie in the Sean John SJ131S sunglasses from Marchon, be sure to stop in and say hi if you find yourself on Nostrand Ave…




Before celebrity chef Curtis Stone was named one of People’s Sexiest Men Alive he was working at some of Australia’s and the UK’s top restaurants. In Australia, he debuted his cooking career at age 18 at the Savoy Hotel. On completing his qualifications as a chef, Stone began cooking in London alongside Marco Pierre White at the Café Royal and Mirabelle. He went on to become head chef at Marco's Quo Vadis before moving to the exclusive Restaurant 301 in California. He went back to Australia to make his television debut on the cooking show/travelogue Surfing the Menu and the rest, as they say, is history. He is now an American TV regular, lucky us! He now spends much of his time in L.A. with girlfriend, actress Lindsay Price, with whom he is expecting a child. But have no fear, he hasn’t become so famous that he isn’t still happy to stop and take a picture with a fan, as he did here while wearing the John Varvatos V767 sunglasses from Base Curve




Before all the Bravo reality television fame, Bethenny Frankel was a foodie. After graduating from the Natural Gourmet Culinary Institute she formed a natural foods bakery and delivery service called BethennyBakes. In 2009, she launched her SkinnyGirl brand and in March of that year, her first book, Naturally Thin: Unleash Your SkinnyGirl and Free Yourself from a Lifetime of Dieting, was published. In December 2009, her second book, The SkinnyGirl Dish: Easy Recipes for Your Naturally Thin Life was released. This past April, she sold her Skinnygirl cocktail line to Fortune Brands' Beam Global for an estimated $120 million and is continuing her quest for global domination with the upcoming SkinnyGirl Cleanse, a daily detox drink. Pardon the pun but Frankel’s future is so bright, she’s gotta wear shades; in this case it’s the Ray-Ban RB3025 large aviator from Luxottica.
