A lot of fashion houses design for the catwalk and not the street—then you see the clothes on a regular guy and it's a mess. Don't disguise your personality behind labels; impose it on the clothes.

The most embarrassing thing a man can own is a disposable razor. They're for women. And speaking of grooming, there's nothing less flattering than shaved legs.

Wearing a pair of high-tops with a suit deconstructs the look, and that's important. I like the way high-tops and pants act together. It's like the effect of rolled-up sleeves for your trousers. Just make sure the socks match your sneakers, not the pants. If you like black high-tops, wear black socks. White, white.

I don't really think I know a man who wouldn't look good in black. Black is always good. It's the basic.

You can wear a white shirt to work, to dinner, to visit the grandmother, to the opera, on vacation, at the beach. It's the true get-away-with-anything item.

There's definitely an age limit for wearing leather pants, but not for wearing leather jackets. A standout fashion leather jacket can look great on a young guy. And there are a lot of suedes that men can get away with at any age.

Don't just copy an outfit. Look in the mirror and do a reality check. It's all about making the good match. You'll know when something is right. And if you don't, just walk down the street: If people look away from you, then you know you've done something wrong.

When I took over Dior Homme, I was warned. I knew it was going to be tough—but it was worse. In life you need good friends, and at work you need a good team. There's so much drama in life and work that you can easily get lost. You need to keep a little distance from everything.

We've had beefy guys and we've had—well, skinny isn't really the right word, it's more like scary. Now men should be athletic, healthy. Today it's about having a balance in life—having nice clothes, good food, and respecting your body.

My grandmother told me there are two ways of living: You can either survive or you can really make a life. There is eating and there is dining. She would always give that extra little effort, and I still believe that is important—to make things more beautiful makes all the difference.

Kris Van Assche was born in Belgium, lives in Paris, and spends his extra time in Argentina and Brazil, where he not only vacations but casts his runway shows. He suggests that when in Paris you take afternoon tea at Mariage Frères, peruse rare titles at the Comptoir de l'Image bookstore, and shop for high-tops at Zoum. And if you ever hit Carnival in Buenos Aires, check out his favorite club—Cocoliche.

Audi Q5

"The Q5 taps the latest, most innovative lighting technology available by utilizing the optional Audi xenon plus headlights with LED daytime running lights. The LED daytime running lights not only create a striking silhouette, they use less energy and have a longer service life. The mercury-free Audi xenon plus headlights offer a considerable improvement over halogen, helping to reduce driver eye fatigue."

"Prominently featured is the Audi Q5 custom concept: Audi engineers prepared this particularly sporty version of the SUV specially for the Wörthersee Tour. The test bed for Audi Genuine Accessories in the custom color Daytona Gray, matt rolls on 21-inch wheels of 7 twin-spoke design. Compared to the production model, the track was widened by 90 millimeters (3.54 in) and the ride height lowered by 60 millimeters (2.36 in). The power output of the 3.0 TFSI V6 engine has been increased from 245 kW (333 hp) to 300 kW (408 hp), allowing the Audi Q5 custom concept to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.4 seconds. Top speed is governed at 250 km/h (155 mph)."

"The car received an entirely new front apron with a large spoiler with integrated fog lamps and a huge front grille that makes this Q5 really aggressive. The body modifications continue with wider fenders, door trims, 22″ alloy wheels, a rear skirt that houses the new exhaust system with four tailpipes and an ABT muffler and a small rear wing. Recently, the company has announced that their Audi Q5 got new engine upgrades and with a so-called ABT Power package they manage to increase HP for every engine. The 2.0 TDI was upgraded from 170 HP to 190 HP and the 3.0L TDI version outputs now 310 HP. The gasoline engines got a more powerful version and the guys from ABT manged to upgrade the engine from 211 HP to 275 HP."

"The car tuning company Caractere have revealed their latest car styling kit for the Audi Q5, and it is a complete body kit. The new kit strengthens the already strong framework of the Audi Q5, and is made of several pieces. It comes complete with a new front bumper, rear spoiler, roof spoiler, and a rear hatch blend. For the rear spoiler exhaust openings can be integrated for the tips, and for the wheels arch extensions are possible as well. All these parts are made from PURim and improve the performance of the Audi Q5. Caractere designed the body kit not only for looks, but to provide performance enhancements all around and make this a complete vehicle."
