Italian TV Style

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

This is a screen grab of an Italian (prime time) talk/culture show host Fabbio Fazio.
What has always sturck me about him is the size of tie knot he insists on wearing. Every show it's the same size. This is in contrast to every other presenter in his ball park age bracket who bulks up a little, as is the general trend here and in many other countries from my experience. This stubborn, loosened 'trade mark' look he prefers harks back a few years I'd say. And never does he wear anything patterned, always solids.
Just curious to hear if any US/other countries' prime time presenters of his age (mid- to late- 30s) successfully pull-off this look?

I'm not sure I can respond directly at all to your question, yet I must speak up as a fond admirer of the fashions and personalities I see on European television, as presented in New York.

Every night, I get my world news from the British/American BBC, the French "20 Heures," and the Italian RAI broadcasts. Even though I hardly speak a word of Italian, I also greatly enjoy watching Italian game shows and I love their fun, sophisticated hosts. Females on both the French and Italian shows are so blatantly sensual that I feel sure they would be crucified in the press here. Yet there's not a touch of crudeness or vulgarity about them.

In short, they all just seem well-balanced humans, intelligent, and beautifully attired with a very comfortable sense of style, and are well-spoken, a breath of fresh air over our air waves.

The eye candy certainly livens up the evenings when Monica's working late. (Don't tell LARon). Can't say I've heard a lot from the mouths of the babes smiling, wiggling and dancing for the cameras. But I'm not complaining. Berlusconi's Canal 5 isn't lacking for the eye candy, either.
