STYLE ICON: DEAN MARTIN
Dean Martin was one of the most fashionable men in Hollywood. Back when everyone dressed up for every occasion, he managed to be unique, yet classic – his unique red handkerchief with his tuxedo, for example. He exemplified class, style and sophistication no longer appreciated today.
Born Dino Paul Crocetti, Dean Martin is remembered as the quintessential man’s man – the “King of Cool” and was one of the most successful entertainers of the 20th century.
Martin’s big break came when he teamed up with legendary comedian Jerry Lewis to create Martin & Lewis. The duo starred in several hit films together before breaking up in 1956. He then went on to a solo career (TV, film, music) and recorded such hits as Everybody Loves Somebody, That’s Amore and the cult favourite, Mambo Italiano. He also starred in several films, including the original Ocean’s 11 which took place in a vastly different Las Vegas than we know today.
Although he enjoyed much success and had a variety of roles, Martin was not a workaholic. In fact, during his popular variety program The Dean Martin Show, he only worked 2 hours a week – when the show was being aired. He rarely rehearsed…he preferred the spontaneity. If there was a mistake, they wouldn’t re-shoot, it was kept in.
He had it all – the looks, the charm, the sophistication – many traits that seem to be falling out of favour with the modern man. A man that always made people smile, Dean Martin set a standard for how a man should carry himself.
