“God is dead but my hair is perfect” is an apocryphal saying attributed to the French, Scorpio and Leo Rising philosopher Bernard Henri Levy.
He is, in fact, insanely Leo Rising, spewing forth controversial comments that have kept him front-of-mind in his native country for what feels like centuries and conducting an extremely interesting love life – he claims it is because he does not drink alcohol and barely sleeps due the power of his intellect, so womanizing is his only leisure activity.
His shirts are always unbuttoned down to the heart chakra.
Married to the Parisian Taurean actress Arielle Dombasle, for whom he left an earlier wife, he is also the rumored love of Scorpio beer heiress, fashion icon, film-maker and social x-ray Daphne Guiness. He is renowned for his fashion obsession, personal vanity, style and pride in his (yes) hair.
Fashion communicates a relationship to the world, to one’s body. What is the reply to the old philosophical inquiry between soul and body: Are they at war? Are they in harmony? Are they friends or enemies?
There are moments in life, in the day, where the two are at war, moments where they are in harmony, days when you feel at war with your body, and days your body is your friend. Fashion says that. Style says that.
For me, dressing is always a question of principle, respect, a sense of order, not to disguise myself, even in rotten places.
This sort of haute intellectual approach to fashion and style used as a personal shield + statement to the world at large is classic Leo Rising, don’t you think? And if Nigella likes older gents, should not THIS sort of guy be more her speed?
