Could this be James Franco‘s most dapper role yet? We think so! To front Gucci‘s new Made to Measure scent, the actor channeled his inner Don Draper for the ’60s-inspired campaign above, which is very sophisticated, and very James Franco. “I try to be involved in things I believe in, projects I care about,” Franco told InStyle.com on why he chose to do the campaign. “I design my life in a way where my work is the same thing as what I love. That’s the statement I try to make.” We think he certainly made the point, and it helps that the scent is easy to love. The masculine blend of bergamot, nutmeg, juniper, and leather makes for a sexy mood-boost, and Franco agrees. “When I first put this scent on, I felt like a man,” he added. “Not only a man — a Made to Measure man.” Well put, James.

You can’t sniff him through this picture, but we’re pretty sure James Franco smelled really good when this shot was taken. That’s because the actor/director/student extraordinaire spritzed on Gucci’s newest men’s scent, Made to Measure, for the launch of the new fragrance in Milan, Italy with Gucci creative director Frida Giannini. The cologne, a spicy oriental blend, is named after the company’s made-to-measure customized suit service. Shop it for the man in your life at Macy’s in mid-July.

Tribeca Film Festival Fashion Moment: The Director Documentary Stars Gucci’s Frida Giannini, and It’s a Must-See for Fashion LoversApr 23, 2013 @ 5:00 pm
Over 100 films are being screened during the Tribeca Film Festival in New York this week, and this is the one we’d vote for if we were jurors: The Director: An Evolution in Three Acts. The documentary goes behind the normally-private world of Gucci creative director Frida Giannini’s design process to show her involvement in directing everything, from selecting final looks for runway shows to auditioning models (watch the trailer above). “For me, clothes are always first a way for people to be seductive,” Giannini reveals in the film. “I don’t think the power woman needs to be necessarily hard. You can be sweet and sensual, and feminine. I think that is the strongest part.” The film was produced by James Franco—who, coincidentally, also happens to be the face of Gucci’s men’s colognes—and was directed by by Franco’s one-time New York University classmate Christina Voros. Is your interest piqued? Scroll down to read six things that solidified our girl crush on Frida Giannini after watching the film. More
Oz the Great and Powerful Opens Today: James Franco’s Surprising Favorite Character, Plus the Sequel That’s Coming!Mar 8, 2013 @ 12:25 pm
James Franco stars as the titular Oz in Oz the Great in Powerful, in theaters today. And while we think it’s a lucky gig, considering that his leading ladies include InStyle‘s March cover girls, Michelle Williams, Mila Kunis, and Rachel Weisz, we were surprised to learn that it was another character from the Wonderful original that sparked his interest in the series (yep, series—Disney just announced that there would be a sequel). “Looking back, I would say, if I identified with anyone, it would have been the Scarecrow,” Franco told InStyle.com at the Cinema Society screening of Oz earlier this week, just a few days before receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. “I was a huge fan of Oz when I was a boy and read all the books.” Even more than the iconic set of characters the novels were known for, though, Franco loved the fantasy element of the film. “It was more about how I was transported to fantastical land, that was the main attraction for me.” A fun reason, indeed! Visit disney.go.com to find out where Oz is playing near you.
