Hollywood designer Charlie Lapson had the pleasure of speaking with the talented actor Raphael Sbarge at the GBK Celebrity Style Lounge. The actor, who plays Jiminy Cricket on ABC’s hit TV series Once Upon a Time, kept us wanting more about the upcoming thrills happening on the series, and mentioned there will be thrilling and dramatic things coming ahead. Raphael chatted about the spectacular costumes, amazing special effects and the wonderful ensemble of actors on the show, and of course he also shared with us some of his best style tips.
Sbarge mentioned wearing a suit earlier but decided to be more casual for the event, sporting a pale pink button down with pressed pants. Raphael, who works with a personal stylist, talked about his favorite fashion brands, “I love Hugo Boss and I always find amazing things at Banana Republic.” Another good tip from his personal style is: to mix it up and be diverse instead of being too matchy-matchy.
In terms of accessories and lifestyle, his go-to is a black leather Charlie Lapson wallet, “it’s awesome…it’s neat, clean and so sharp,” added the actor. Raphael also uses a variety of skin moisturizing products, not just one in particular.
Moving onto culture, Sbarge believes Los Angeles to be a city full of culture with accessibility to museums, live theater and music halls. “LA is great, there is so much here you just have to find it.” The actor himself is part of a small theater company that does revivals of classic shows. He recommends “Cafe Gratitude” and “Red Medicine” to anyone seeking an exciting night on the town!
