It's mid-November, which means that by now, a cohort of males across the globe have some pretty fine 'staches going for Movember, a month-long pledge to forgo the razor in an effort to raise money (and awareness) for men's cancers. In 2009, global Movember participants raised about $42 million.
The month of Movember has finally come to an end. What started off as innocently as a monthlong moustache-growing contest benefiting the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG quickly turned into a hot and heavy striptease affair at last week's awards party. Can we say mo bros turned mo hoes?
It's almost the end of October, which can only mean one thing. No, we're not talking about partying amongst a sea of pantless Lady Gagas, we're talking mustaches. Lots and lots of mustaches. Movember gives men around the world an excuse to disregard their 5 o'clock shadow and embrace the 'stache, all for a good cause. And since we can't let men have all the fun, we've taken inspiration for this week's look from one of our favorite mustached men, Salvador Dali:
1. T by Alexander Wang Long Sleeve Stretch Dress, $90: We plan on living in this au courant dress through the winter, and recommend you do the same.
With all the Halloween brouhaha, it's easy to forget that a "costumed" occasion of a more dedicated sort is just around the corner. We say dedicated because it involves growing hair. As in mustaches. Epic mustaches. It's all part of Movember, a month-long no-shaving pledge/charity-drive to raise awareness for men's cancers (specifically prostate and testicular cancer). Movember participants (Mo Bros, they're called) vow to abstain from shaving from November 1 until December 3. The journey culminates with a mustache Gala Parte (going down at Mighty in SF), where the Man of November is crowned.
