Diary: Adman, style guru and Austin Powers lookalike

Young fashionistas across the globe are clamouring to appear on the web's fashion blog of the moment, thesartorialist.blogspot.com, only to be beaten to it by London's most eccentrically dressed adman, Robin Wight (one of Campaign's top ten best dressed in last year's Annual).

The blog, compiled by a street photographer who calls himself the "Sartorialist", features photos of stylishly dressed men and women snapped on the streets of the fashion capitals of the world.

But among the Chanel-clad women and cravat-sporting men, you can now find none other than the Engine Group chairman, boasting a very pink ensemble.

His outfit has stirred up some emotional, and very complimentary, responses from the website's fans. One person commented: "That gentleman is the most amazing breath of fresh air on a cold fall day," while another exclaimed: "I feel rejuvenated looking at this gentleman." Others, however, weren't quite so impressed. "That man looks like Austin Powers' grandfather," one user said.

With rumours circulating that the fourth installment of the movie series is being planned, could Wight be set to embark on a glittering Hollywood career with a star turn alongside Mike Myers?
