  1. Doug, can you purchase an inexpensive suit and still get a million dollar look?

Yes, it’s all about how it’s tailored and fitted to your body.  Suits are typically designed on fit models. Everyone’s body is different.  And suits are fitted to one body for the designer. Getting a suit tailored and fitted to your specific body shape can give you that million dollar look without spending a fortune.

 

 

  1. If you can only purchase one suit what should it be?

You can’t go wrong with a simple black classic suit. It always stays in style. Black is ideal whether for weddings, funerals or a night on the town. Black is the go-to color.

 

 

  1. Tie or no tie?

Traditionally, you would always go with a tie. But now, you can pull off sophitication and style with out making it too formal. I call it the “George Clooney look” and I prefer the no tie. But if you’re going without a tie, throw a white handkerchief in for a little “je ne sais quois.”

 

 

  1. Should you see your shirt cuff or not?

It’s important to make certain when you’re buying a suit the cuff is visible. Personally, I prefer an inch of shirt cuff.  I’m also a big fan of French cuffs; they are more elegant and remind me of traditional old movie star glamour.

You might have seen me as the face of Stila, Clear Essence, Nars, Herbalife, Youthful Luster Skincare and Classified Cosmetics. I was a model with the Wilhelmina Agency in Los Angeles for several years. I’ve also been an actor for over a decade and learned a lot about beauty, skincare and fashion in the process. I've worked with everyone from "hairstylist to the stars" Chris McMillan to makeup legend Paul Starr. I’m asked by women, “Excuse me, what lotion do you use?” “What do you use on your hair? I’ve been stopped on elevators, in the mall, restaurants, you name it. And I’ve received emails from as far away as Japan and South America from complete strangers asking me about beauty tips. I’m not saying this to toot my own horn, but to illustrate the fact women ask me about skincare, makeup and fashion. A lot. I believe in every woman's ability to be beautiful. And what I’ve learned, I’d love to share with you.
