Man Crush Monday: 5 Celebs We’d Rather See in ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’

If you’re anything like me, then last week’s reveal of the newest Fifty Shades of Grey trailer left you feeling…underwhelmed. I don’t know about you, but after investing two weeks reading the trilogy and spending months waiting for the preview; I was kind of hoping the movie would actually live up to all the hype. But as much as I appreciate Jamie Dornan (and more importantly, those abs), I can definitely think of a few choice celebs that would do a much-better job playing the role of Christian Grey. So, in honor of Man Crush Monday, I give you five pieces of eye candy to start your week off right:

First up: Mr. Michael Fassbender. Not only is this Irish-German actor easy on the eyes, but he's got an impressive set of acting chops to boot. Oh, and there's that whole not-so-subtle nude scene in Shame...

There’s Nothing More Glam Than Frank Sinatra and Mia Farrow’s NYC Penthouse

If you’re a sucker for old-Hollywood glamour, art-deco accents and like to listen to Frank Sinatra while cooking (who doesn’t, really?), Frank’s actual apartment is perfect for you.

The singer’s Upper East Side penthouse (that Mia Farrow lived in while they were married) is on the market for $4.995 million — but can you really put a price on a penthouse with views of the East River that Marilyn Monroe, Andy Warhol and President John F. Kennedy used to party at?

Put on Frank’s rendition of “New York, New York” to set the mood and take a look here:

My All-Important Packing Musts for a Tropical Vacay

Sometimes you’re given the glorious opportunity to play harder than you work—such is the case as I was invited on a press trip to the British Virgin Islands. Obviously, I squealed, “yes!” and was beside myself, especially since it had been years since my last vacation and not to mention, I had never been to the Caribbean. I immediately started thinking, “what am I going to pack?” because, yes, I’m a planner, but more so, a shopper, so here are my ten things I’m bring to the BVI.

The Luggage

As tough as it can be to par down on my packing list, it’s all about traveling light (at least that’s what they say…). I want to guarantee my luggage doesn’t get lost or crushed, so I’m bringing it on board and this carry-on is the chicest route since it looks like a tiny steamer trunk from the days when flying was actually stylish.
