Monday Hotness: Zac Posen

Filed under: Couture,The Monday Hotness — Miss Plumcake @ 12:00 pm

Gosh Zac Posen is cute.

I mean, this kid has been on my radar since we were both in our early 20’s (he’s a year younger than I am) and I never really thought much about his hotness until recently. When you think of hot guy designers usually you think of Tom Ford or maybe Marc Jacobs –because seriously, is there an editorial he hasn’t stripped for?— but Zac Posen is relatively unassuming which is why I was all breathless when I did some googling and discovered, wow, he is  REALLY good looking.

I think I’ve got a soft spot for the 29 year-old designer because he reminds me a bit of Andre, had Andre been hit with the Marlon Brando stick instead of the Overly Sensitive French Chef Who STILL Doesn’t Understand the Concept of International Time Zones stick (he’s back in Lyon at the moment and making me insane with his ill-timed calls.. “Hi Baby! Do you meeses me? I meese you. Do you meeses me now? I am still meesing you”).


And the things I find attractive about Zac are also what make me forgive Andre for all his Gallic goofiness. Great nose, beautiful lips, lovely curls and those sort of eyes that usually end morning-after trips to church or Planned Parenthood.

I think I like him best with a little stubble, he’s so clean cut here in his Clark Kent get up.


I get the blue suit because it looks great with the yellow dress, but what’s the deal, Superman?

Or maybe he really IS a superhero and he’s just going UNDERCOVER as a brilliant young designer so he can infiltrate their world. But no, that’s crazy. It’s not like the fashion world is being preyed upon by some evil genius with a weird costume and some sort of crazy German accen…

Don't let him touch you, Zac!

oh. Never mind.

  3. Thank GOD. Before I scrolled down to the picture, it took me two seconds to realize you were speaking of Zac POSEN, not Zac EFRON (ZOMG GROSS!!!!).

    Zac Posen, however, is yummy. And I feel you about the Frenchmen. Mmm….

  5. The older I get, the more I realize that guys who are that beautiful are, in the main, total pains in the ass. Douses the hotness for me.

  6. theDiva, it is possible also for Zac Posen to be a pain. But still – he has his family employed in the business! His Mom is in charge of – stuff! But important stuff! And he’s made some seriously beautiful dresses.
