Note to Rachel Zoe’s Husband: Guyliner Only Looks Cool on Johnny Depp (PHOTO)

rachel zoe husbandThere are few things in the world I feel as strongly about as guyliner. You could ask me where I come down on the epic Yankees versus Red Sox debate, and I would shrug casually and blabber something about the Nats. But ask me how I feel about a man wearing makeup and a fire is ignited in me that's fueled by steadfast opinions on the most meaningless topic, dudes in eyeliner. 

Here's my take. Men. should. never. ever. I'm serious. ever. wear. eyeliner. I don't care if you're Rachel Zoe's husband (I'm looking at you, Rodger Burman) and she's dragged you to a MAC event, you do not stare at yourself delicately in a mirror and line your fluttering eyes with black pencil.

No no no no no no NO.

Everyone knows that in the history of the world, there has only been one man who can pull off the guyliner, and if you think I'm going to say Pete Wentz or one of those early 2000s rocker twins that Nicole Richie married, then kindly leave. That is so not even close to the right answer that we're just going to have to agree to disagree and you might as well move on.

The correct answer, the only correct answer, is Johnny Depp. If you are not Johnny Depp, then you cannot wear guyliner. Doesn't matter how many times your video was played on TRL or how many tattoos or tight wool beanies you own -- if you're a man and your name doesn't rhyme with Shawny Krepp, then stay out of your lady's makeup case.

And Rodge, you know I love you, man, but don't do everything Rachel tells you to do. And if this guyliner and long hair were your idea, then buddy, pal, nah uh. Not your best look.

How do you feel about guyliner? Love it or leave it?

I truly thought her husband was gay during her show. Now I'm convinced.

men wore makeup through the ages, not just JD. Look at the 17th and 18th centuries. the aristocracy wore tons of makeup- women AND men. and those men were Not Gay.

How do I feel about "guyliner?" The same way I feel about makeup on men in general - it was, is, and always will be a big "don't." I prefer my guy smudged with Rem Oil not Technakohl. 😉

I knew a lot of guys in the 90s that did the guyliner look. And it looked great!

However, much like the micro-mini, after a certain age- just...no.



The guys I know that did it then, wouldn't be caught with it now, even on Halloween, lol. They've retired their double pierced ears and little hoops, additional piercings, and guyliner; usually trading them all in for steady jobs, 401k's, and SUVs.



There are a few exceptions to this rule. Like David Bowie. He's okay to do the guyliner. Or, Johnny Depp. And Jennifer Aniston...I'm not a fan, but I'm pretty sure that woman can rock a mico mini for quite a few more years.



Its pretty subjective, but to each his/her own :)

omg, he looks awful and so does she. I like her old locks. She still looks way too thin.

I saw Roger on the Rachel Zoe show and totally thought he was gay. What straight man (non-musician, non Johnny Depp) wears eyeliner. His hair looks really bad. Rachel is oranger than the orange on my kitchen counter.
