The fifth annual Blue Jacket Fashion Show in support of the Prostate Cancer Foundation will be held virtually on Feb. 4 at 7 p.m., which is World Cancer Day.

The event helps raise awareness about the devastation of prostate cancer and the importance of early screening and early detection, as well as treatment options, with a new emphasis on racial disparities and underserved communities.

The program will feature virtual one-on-one discussions with celebrities, fashion notables and medical and research experts, and will conclude with a socially distant virtual version of the initiative’s traditional Blue Jacket runway show.

Event participants include André Leon Talley, actors Billy Porter, Dominic Fumusa, Josh Lucas and Mario Cantone; TV personalities Bill Nye, Don Lemon, Dr. Mehmet Oz, Mike Woods, Paul Wharton and Nigel Barker, as well as Marcel Floruss, Leo Chan, Alex Lundqvist and Ty-Ron Mayes.

Men’s Fashion Week Fall 2021 was inarguably about the clothes, with a toned-down, natural approach being the dominant trend when it came to hair and grooming. Whether in Milan or Paris, simplicity reigned supreme.

It can be fun when designers and stylists integrate daring makeup or inventive hairstyles, but they’re not always the easiest to translate into day-to-day life. With their emphasis on simplicity, the recent shows left us with looks that are inherently attainable, rather than simply aspirational.

From Best Products

Between the two global pandemics of coronavirus and the unjust murders of black people by police brutality, we’re brought together this June to celebrate the true meaning of PRIDE month: to celebrate the strides our LGBTQ+ community has made for a more inclusive environment, and to band together to fight against the tumultuous bigotry that still plagues our society.

So, this year we’re going beyond rainbows and glitter to show our support, and we’re asking you to do the same. The following brands have made a commitment this month to
