美语怎么说014讲: 花美男

  • 美国之音

YL: JESSICA,你发现没有,现在有一种男人,皮肤比女人还好,比女人还爱打扮,穿得特时髦,都跟从偶像剧里走出来似的。我们叫他们“花美男”,flower-pretty-man! 呵呵,我瞎翻的,美语中不会也有类似的称呼吧?

JESSICA: Actually, there IS an English equivalence. It's "metrosexual" m-e-t-r-o-s-e-x-u-a-l, metrosexual.

YL: metro-- "大城市",加上 sexual-- "性别的"。那 metrosexual 跟中文里说的“花美男”指的是一种人吗?

Jessica: Well, Metrosexual men live in big cities, know all the trendy places in town and pay great attention to their appearances.

YL: 没错! 花美男就是住在大城市里的时尚达人,特别注重外表和打扮!要这么说,花美男就是 metrosexual man!

JESSICA: I guess being a metrosexual man means you're doing your homework on the latest trends. You need to be up-to-date on the hottest fashion!

YL: up-to-date on the hottest fashion? fashion是时尚的意思,up-to- date 是跟上潮流,所以,up-to-date on the hottest fashion 就是“紧跟最新时尚”吧?

JESSICA: That's right! But Yanglin, I would say the real fashionable people are not those who follow the trends, but the trend setters!

YL: trend setters? t-r-e-n-d, trend 是趋势的意思,setter, s-e-t-t-e-r 是设定者,所以 trend setter 就是开创时尚的真正潮人!

JESSICA: 没错! Now let's see what you've learned today!

YL: 第一,注重打扮的“花美男”是 metrosexual men; 第二,紧跟流行时尚是 be up-to-date on the hottest fashion; 第三,领导时尚的潮人叫 trend setter!
