A date with…Alexander Skarsgard

Ooooh Eric: What a wonderful overbite…

When I blogged my top five list of men over the summer, and chose the outfits I’d wear to go on a date with them (you would think I had too much time on my hands), it seemed to be a popular enterprise and, to that end, I’ve received several requests asking me to do the same thing to men on your lists.

One name in particular has been batted at me several times (I’m looking especially hard at you, Cathy W and Karen R) – Alexander Skarsgard, aka Eric Northman from HBO’s True Blood.

I must admit that when I started watching True Blood, I was all about Bill, but having got as far as the ninth book in the Southern Vampire Mysteries, and watching sneaky peeks of TB season 4 online, I have finally started to appreciate Eric’s sex appeal. (Memory loss, nekkidness and a massive ding-dong will do it every time.)

So what are we wearing for a date with the delicious Viking? It’s got to be simple, elegant and stunning. Definitely body con. Plus, there needs to be some serious shoe-age involved…

By George! I think I’ve got it:

Rebecca Torres at ASOS, £75
Christian Louboutin at NET-A-PORTER, £945

If you are desperate to know what to wear for a (fantasy) date with a (fanciful) man, do let me know…
