A date with Mark Ruffalo

This week’s fantasy date was requested by my lovely friend (and fashion partner in crime) Rose. She Tweeted that Mr. Mark Ruffalo might be her “second-best looking male” (after her hubby). That’s a pretty serious crush in my book.

What would one wear on a date with the handsome man who is about to star as The Hulk – he’s green, I can dig that – in the The Avengers…
Mark Ruffalo is a bit of a chameleon I reckon – he never looks quite the same in two movies. Perhaps there’s a fluctuating beard/weight issue going on, but he sure can look attractive when he wants to.

He seems like a down-to-earth guy, politically-minded, very cool. On a date with him, you’d have to be thinking bold, designer tailoring – with a big, funky twist. Definitely a bright colour to contrast with his love of neutrals, and also to make a quirky statement – on his arm, it would be necessary.

I await Rose’s opinion with baited breath.

And as we’re on the subject of La Ruffalo, the first full trailer for The Avengers has just been released…wanna see it? Cast your eyes down then, loves.

Be warned, there are many hunks involved (including “Thor” aka “Phwoar”). Still, I doubt the ladies will be quite as excited by this spectacle as the men (small and grown) in my household.
