Style guru Vincent Gregory chats to us about the image of men portrayed in the media. 
 
Naked men on our screens, on posters, in ads: it is a passing craze or is it here to stay?

It’s definitely here to stay. We’re not afraid of showing off male beauty and male sensuality any more. Times have certainly changed!

One way of looking at it is to consider that modern men aren’t 'violent warriors': they’re gentler, and they have their weaknesses. It’s all about ‘sensual freedom,’ as was the case for women years ago, and as with the female body years ago, we're demystifying the male body by showing parts that were once taboo, like the bottom of the back and the bum.
