Studs with Pugs: Dahling, you look MAHVELOUS!

I love the movie Men in Black. I don’t know what it is about it, but I could watch it a thousand more times and still not get tired of it. It just cracks me up. Plus, the coroner has a fabulous name, and it’s got Frank the Pug—how can you not love him?

J has one great line in the move that I love in particular. Right after he gets his identity erased and puts on his MIB standard-issue suit and glasses (and that watch!), he turns to K and says:

“You know what the difference is between you and me? I make this look good.”

Love it! Yes, J does look good in that suit. But better than K? Maybe, but it’s hard to say. I mean, Tommy Lee Jones is definitely in the running for Studs with Pugs. Some things just make people look good.

What does this have to do with Studs with Pugs, you ask? Well, let me tell you.

True, a pug/puggle/puggle hybrid/dog friend of a pug or pug-mix will always make you look good, but when it comes to fashion, I always think of one name in particular:

Valentino.

Have you ever seen a man in a Valentino suit? Not sure? Just think back to any Oscars telecast you’ve ever watched, and the best looking man there (just don’t think about George Clooney—that one’s mine). I bet you one whole dollar that he very well might’ve been wearing a Valentino suit. And I can guarantee the prettiest dresses on the women run a high likelihood of being Valentino. I always think of Julia Roberts’ black and white dress, or that stunning red one that Katherine Heigl wore. So beautiful!

In short, Valentino makes you look good. And what makes Valentino himself look good?

Pugs.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go spend my day reading everything at Dog Art Today.

Yes, Valentino is a major pug lover. In fact, there’s actually a documentary about him that heavily features his pugs. Can you believe it? Pretty dresses and pugs—throw in a cupcake (and George Clooney) and you’ve got my dream movie.

He even had a special promo contest involving best-dressed pugs. I love it!

Sometimes, though, I have to wonder: does he have good taste because he has pugs, or does he have pugs because he has good taste?

Needless to say, I think we can all agree that this man could make us all look good.

The only real issue with Valentino is that I can’t afford one of his dresses. Mr. V, can I entice you to follow Isaac Mizrahi’s lead and do a line with Target? Si?

hmmmm, Mr. V at target....hey, maybe your studs with pugs magic will work? Isn't he retiring? Maybe a new line, Tarjay Couture. Might work if you say it in your best italian accent?
