That Face

July 9th, 2010 |Posted by contributor

In the current Details, Tyson Ballou shows why he remains, more than a decade later, still one of the most requested faces of today. Photographer Anthony Maule and stylist Julie Ragolia kept the concept simple and true to highlight the latest in cold weather fashion, ranging from blazers/sweaters and ankle boots, to a cozy coat by Dior Homme. What pulled it all together? Edward Kim‘s casting of that near iconic face and body. Fall clothes (and Mr. Ballou himself) have never looked so good. (Story by Michael N) (See the full editorial on

Living Legends

Classics never go out of style, they simply get better with time – the same can be said of male modeling’s legendary faces. In the latest V Man, Josh Olins shoots Alex Lundqvist, Marcus Schenkenberg, Joel West, Brad Kroenig and Tyson Ballou, in the season’s strongest denim looks. The boys manage to look just as cool as the day they were signed, quite a feat in an industry obsessed with youth.

Just who is this Brazilian beauty?

And from the Imagist (if you missed these stories): Tyson Ballou looking like the supermodel he is still; i-D magazine issue 300 is guaranteed to be multi covers again; Abbey Lee Kershaw in Gucci– the commercial (who by the way looks like she has the superpower of moving the wind, a la X-Men or Heroes)

Tyson on Top

April 9th, 2009 |Posted by Betty

There is a reason Tyson Ballou is the go to guy for Vogue. His ability to go from rakishly handsome partner in crime to a gold tooth enhanced, fringe wearing bad guy, only verifies why more than a decade later, he still remains one of the most requested models in the world. In this Vogue Italia/Steven Klein shoot with Amber Valletta, Tyson shows his dark side and Amber is powerless to resist. Even with the gold tooth and cowboy fringe Tyson radiates sexuality and power.
