His tried-and-true fashion formula
Jonathan relies on two fashion labels to look his best: Crocs and Express.
‘My style essentials are very different than most people, I wear a lot of Crocs,’ admits the 41-year-old actor.
‘I am obsessed with Crocs, I think they are actually cool looking and fashionable; I have 6 pairs in all different colors and styles, I wear them everywhere – even the red carpet.
While interviewing fellow ‘Mean Girls’ star Lacey Chabert at Hallmark’s Christmas Con, Jonathan added a festive touch to an all grey ensemble with a pair of red Crocs.
‘I just got my first pair of mou today; they are so comfortable, they will be the one pair of shoes I wear other than my Crocs.’
The handsome talent was spotted in Park City, Utah, with his husband, star of MTV’s ‘The Real Friends of WeHo’, Jaymes Vaughan, trying on mou boots and Canadian Classics outerwear.

Jonathan and Jaymes Vaughan both love Express fashions
Whilst Jonathan’s on-trend and incredibly pulled-together ensembles may appear to be the result of luxury designer labels, his wardrobe is actually made up of attainable fashions.
‘I’m obsessed with Express. Jaymes and I got married in Express tuxedos, I wear Express to host all my shows on Food Network,’ he shared.
‘Express is the best brand for a guy like me who isn’t a style-forward person, because whatever pieces you mix and match will work the majority of the time, and that’s why I like it. I don’t have to think.
‘I just know the Express suit with the Express shirt will work together and then I throw on Crocs and that’s my style.’
Best kept beauty secret
A well put together look isn’t solely about what you wear. Skincare is critically important, especially with Hollywood actors.
Jonathan credits his perpetual glow to the iDerm facial.
‘The biggest secret in Hollywood that no one talks about is the Face Place; I’ve been going there since I was 19 years old,’ revealed the ‘Cheaper by the Dozen’ star.
‘Its on Santa Monica Blvd in West Hollywood. Some of the biggest stars go there.’
Face Place has the best Honey Almond Scrub on the market. A lot of times, for guys, scrubs for are not rough enough
Face Place was founded in 1972 and immediately became a celebrity haven for those wanting clean, clear, rejuvenated skin.
The Face Place’s signature facial treatment is known as the iDerm Facial ($155), it was founded by Dr. Paul Meminger.
Dr. Meminger pioneered the use of electric current to open pores and infuse the skin with restorative vitamins and minerals.
The treatment also includes skilled extraction techniques.
‘And Face Place has the best Honey Almond Scrub on the market,’ Jonathan attests. ‘A lot of times, scrubs are not rough enough for guys.
‘This feels like they took almonds, threw it in a blender and poured some honey in it.
‘It gets everything off of your face, so if you’re an actor or just someone that works out a lot and wants to exfoliate your face really well, the Honey Almond Scrub from Face Place is what’s kept me looking great for over 25 years.’
