Bradley Cooper snags another cover for the same month for DETAILS.

I'm afraid he's photographed with the same looking picture (him wearing a grey t-shirt and a white jacket) he once had for the same magazine on the same month last year.

Anyway, I'm over it and what I like about this issue is how the photos of Cooper look young and cool. He's wearing plain clothes, ones you could get dirty in but still appear impeccably dressed, instead of precious Yves Saint Laurent suits or Tom Ford shirts. Last year, for the same month, Cooper was photographed---as I remember---fixing a car, in a plain t-shirt and jeans you could barely see. Now, it's the same simple, laid-back gear that's full on American easy chic.

The photos of him playing ball is inspiring. It makes me want to go out and shoot hoops and pretend I'm real good at it.
I was thinking, if DETAILS or GQ or VANITY FAIR or ESQUIRE (hell even VOGUE) could put Jon Hamm, Bradley Cooper, Patrick Dempsey and that cool actor on The Hurt Locker on one cover, that'd be a damn fine cover. All my favorite actors on one issue...

The photos are by Norman Jean Roy, a Conde Nast favorite I guess and the interesting story, penned by Nancy Jo Sales. Here's a tiny part I really like:

He swings into a secluded coffee bar and orders a decaf macchiato. At the counter he banters with the young barista, whose name, we find out, is Weston. Weston has absolutely no idea who Bradley Cooper is.

"My assistant's name is Weston," Cooper says, waiting for his drink. "He goes by West."

"Too country," the kid grumbles as he grinds the beans.

"I don't mind it. But I don't like Westie."

"Mmm. Too canine."

"What about Wes?"

"Why not just Weston?" the server finally snaps.

"I like it," Cooper says, grinning again. "Thanks, bro," he adds as he's handed his beverage.

If Cooper was trying to be a dick, his timing was impeccable.

  1. Hi Gerard. This isn't about Brad Cooper. My latest discovery: http://www.zappos.com/converse-by-john-varvatos-cvo-sockless-wing-tip-slip-noce?zlfid=111 thought you might enjoy--

  2. Hey Christina.
    I love the color. But I don't think I'd wear these kinds of shoes...I'm some stuck up purist. hahaha...BUT I could see potential looks for this one.

    Do you finally have a blog? :)

  3. Morning, G. Also a purist, but wingtips get to me. I think they would wear-in well when the color darkened and got some patina. New name, blog just born an hour ago, no posts yet because the formatting wore me out. And trying to make sure my personal inf didn't get blasted all over the net before I could reel it back in. A couple more cups of coffee and I'll throw in a post -- thanks for the gentle push http://inferrumveritas.blogspot.com/

  4. I'll visit your blog real soon.
    If you need any help, I could try. hahah. You're welcome. I'm excited to see what your blog would look like and what it'd be about.
