The Sartorially Changing Men of "True Blood"

The fourth season of True Blood has been bloodier, racier, trashier, more over-the-top, and more ridiculous than ever – and I couldn't be any happier.
Nonetheless, as I watch the fang-banging, the bloodsucking, and the general mayhem, I can't help but wonder, "Has the image of the characters changed along with the mythological Southern-fried looney storylines?"
The women easily have their trademark "style." Sookie stuffs herself into boob-hugging baby tees and camel toe-inducing Daisy Dukes; Pam displays her bitchiness via Dynasty dominatrix leather & lace and the "moon goddess" witch Marnie obviously has ambitions to be the next Chico's spokesmodel.
But what about the beloved men of Bon Temps? Upon close examination, they have probably evolved even more than the women. From Lafayette's braids and zany first season looks to Eric's finely cut suits, here's a breakdown of how three bohunks and one queen have kept their image fresh amidst the craziness of vampires, werewolves, Maenads, werepanthers, fairies, and witches

Joe Manganiello Interview: Actor Talks 'True Blood' Finale, Male Strippers & 'Magic Mike'

Fact: Joe Manganiello looks good without his shirt on.
He's already captured millions of hearts as hunky werewolf Alcide on HBO's hit show "True Blood," but Manganiello is more than just a pretty face and rock hard abs. He's a classically trained actor who studied drama at Carnegie Mellon, he's done more Shakespeare than fans would suspect, and he's been getting nude in front of audiences long before he was cast as Alcide.
"When I was in college, I did an Off-Broadway show where I was full-frontal on stage, so I guess all of these crazy parts have been coming my way for a long time," Manganiello tells The Huffington Post.
And his next crazy part includes playing a male stripper named Big Dick Richie in Steven Soderbergh's new film, "Magic Mike." Inspired by Channing Tatum's days working the pole before he became an acclaimed actor, here Tatum plays an experienced stripper who shows new kid, Alex Pettyfer, the ropes. Matthew McConaughey plays club owner and sage stripper named Dallas. Rounding out the incredibly good-looking cast is "White Collar's" Matt Bomer, Manganiello's good friend and Carnegie Mellon classmate.
But what happens when you have that much testosterone in one film? Whatever happens, Manganiello isn't feeling the pressure--after all, he's the one getting naked on a weekly basis on "True Blood." By all means, he's an old pro and dropping trou.
