    Much like florals in spring or Marni platforms during Fashion Week, Simon Doonan is ubiquitous. You've probably heard his signature English snark on TV. Or maybe you've read his bitingly hilarious and brutally honest style articles on Slate, or his newest book, Gay Men Don't Get Fat . But above all, you know him as the mastermind behind the gorgeous window displays at Barneys New York. Yes, wherever there is fashion to be had, you can bet this larger-than-life dandy deity is waiting in the wings, ready to give his candid opinion on weighty matters like whether small boobs are making a comeback and what exactly separates Lady Gaga from Anna Wintour.

    Since he's so vocal about others, we wanted to pick his brain a bit regarding his own fashion sensibility, who his favorite style stars are, and, of course, what he's wearing this spring. So, click through to check out Simon's whimsical outfits—which we shot in Barneys before the store opened (cue the-kid-in-the-candy-store reference)—find out his one grooming must, and learn about his most outrageous club look, ever. The answers might just surprise you…but then again, surprises are what this man does best.

    Peep Simon Doonan goofing off at Barneys, and check out his four spring looks any guy (or girl!) can copy.
