It's pretty short and sweet this week for what got the readers chatting the most, because you really (really, really) like our latest series by our "man on the street" fashion photog Tom Andrews! STYLEist had FOUR top entries this week: STYLEist: Take a Walk on the Wild Side (porn star Mandy Morbid and her friend pose for us), STYLEist: Extreme Street Fashion (Yellow skinny jeans, white socks, metallic pumps, skull jacket and a one of a kind manicure. Anything left out?), STYLEist: Androgyny, the New Sexy?(self-explanatory...or was it?), and STYLEist: Business Sexy or Business Geek? (what would lead this suited man to wear his tie like that?).
