Black Tie Magazine - cover and small article

This seems to be the latest issue. From Black Tie Mag

George Clooney
Successful, Beloved & Human Rights Activist


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

George Clooney, successful, beloved and
human rights activist travels to Darfur with
the hopes of engaging the hearts of the world
(our hearts) to join him in this quest to bring
peace and healing to this region of conflict
and pain.

George Clooney, tall, dark, ruggedly
handsome, witty and intelligent; who
could ask for more?... George Clooney’s
genuine compassion for those in need.

Not just another Hollywood “Superstar”
George exemplifies how one person with
a passion for good can raise awareness to
the genocide which is taking place in
Darfur and utilize his time and energy to
creating change and making a difference.

One could not help but think that this
man has it all, however life was not
always easy for George. As a young
boy, George developed Bell’s Palsy, a
debilitating condition that partially
paralyzes the face. Luckily it went
away within a year however he suffered
with problems in his left eye and the
inability to eat or drink properly. “That
was the worst time in my life” he told
the Mirror in a 2003 interview. “You
know how cruel kids can be. I was
mocked and taunted, but the experience
made me stronger.”

George did not grow bitter from this
childhood experience, he learned from it.
He understood the opportunity he was
given to see what life is like for those less
fortunate and can therefore appreciate
how important it is to alleviate suffering
wherever and whenever possible.

Our love affair with George started when
he set our hearts racing and caused our
pulses to beat a bit faster as Dr. Doug
Ross on NBC’s ER. He became a household
name when appearing in the big
screen movie “Oceans Eleven.”

Although we constantly see pictures of
George at Red Carpet events there are
other events which are just as important
(if not more so) to George’s heart.

George skipped the Oscars and after
parties in order to discuss the crisis in
Darfur with President Obama. He has
also appeared on Larry King Live to
speak about his recent visit to camps
where 250,000 refugees live. He said “I
don’t think people should be going there
and coming back saying how it affected
them, I think somehow we should all
know that these people are hanging on
by the skin of their teeth.

He has asked
Obama to appoint a full time regional
envoy who will report directly to the
White House and to ask China to set
aside its business interests in the region
and pressure Sudan to prevent further
harm to these people.

It's not often you read things written in first person plural: "Our love affair with George started when he set our hearts racing and caused our pulses to beat a bit faster..."

Is this a magazine dedicated to wearing tuxedos? Strangely, the article doesn't discuss GTC's sartorial choices or how he dresses left, right or whatever. Tie vs. no-tie, that kind of thing.
