The Sexy Urbanite
There is sexy and then there is Yigal Azrouël, who understands that
sexiness – the tasteful kind – is often very subtle. It is a refreshing thought

of Olivia Wilde, Charlize Theron, and Natalie Portman, Yigal Azrouel has
undoubtly established serious claims to be the calling card for the urban
