What could be more exciting than many of the world’s top male models posing for VMan? It just may be all of them getting together getting for tomorrow’s Male Model World Cup sponsored by the mag. Some top faces scheduled to kick off the event: Mathias Lauridsen, Simon Nessman, Danny Schwarz, Oraine Barrett and many more (see full list below). We chatted with VMan editor Jacob Brown and found out the inspiration.

“I came up with this idea actually at Mathias Lauridsen’s birthday dinner. He was telling me about the league soccer he plays, and how so many of the guys are also very serious soccer players—a lot of them are from Europe and have played all their lives. One of us made a joke like, “Oh wouldn’t it be funny if there was a big tournament where all the models competed.” And then I realized that it would actually be a perfect event for VMAN to host. So Mathias and I started putting it together. He’s sort of the chairman of the tournament and has helped get the players together with the agencies. And Hummel, which is an athletic gear company from his home country of Denmark, hooked us up with uniforms and everything. We are shooting the tournament tomorrow of course, and we will be running photos of the winning team in the next VMAN. Stephen Gan and I are really excited about this tournament and plan on making the Male Model World Cup a yearly event!

Gorgeous, athletic and sweaty men… Doesn’t get better than that.

Denim campaigns keep it simple – attractive people, a couple great pairs of jeans and not much else. Case in point, Armani Jeans’ fall ads featuring the eye-catching pairing of  Danny Schwarz & Isabella Oelz. When two people this pouty and pretty join forces the end result is bound to be steamy and this is no exception. Takay shoots the appealing pair in black and white as they heat things up.

After looking at thousands of pictures of young men for the past several weeks, we thought we’d throw out some of the faces that stood out to us from the men’s shows.

Clement Chabernaud, star of this season’s Roberto Cavalli campaign by Steven Meisel was our pick for the top most versatile model of the season with 20 plus of the top shows, including Roberto Cavalli, Jil Sander, Versace, DSquared2, Hugo by Hugo Boss, Louis Vuitton, Thierry Mugler, Raf Simons and closing Prada, Giuliano Fujiwara and Missoni. See our interview with the beautiful Frenchman!

Top 50 stars: AJ Abualrub, Jakob Wiechmann, Simon Nessman and Jeremy Young followed closely behind with 15 plus of the top shows.

Last season’s set of MDC top newcomers: Benoni Loos, Charlie France, Danny Schwarz, Francisco Lachowski, Johannes Linder, Jonas Kesseler, Lyle Lodwick, Mark Cox, Nick Rea, Nate Gill, Nicolas Ripolll, Robbie Wadge, Thomas Hoefnagels, Vladimir Ivanov andJakob Hybholt all had tremendous sophomore seasons. Mr. Hybholt and Mr Linder had monster weeks racking 17 plus shows each.

Former MOTW’s to keep your eye on from the shows: Callum, Albert, Douglas Nietzke, Philipp Bierbaum, Isaac Carew

Some familiar faces who are not only looking better than ever, some had their best week ever: Bastiaan Ninaber, Gen Huismans, Gordie Walker, George Barnett, Guy Robinson.

Some new spectacular faces: Silviu Tolu and Tim Boot. (Edited to add Peter Bruder from Future Milan, see below for picture).

The Warrior Within

June 18th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

Alexei Hay takes things into the wild for 10 Men. The spring/summer issue features Danny Schwarz, Thomas Hoefnagels, Blake Kuchta & Robert Rae sporting gear that bridges the gap between western and tribal. The handsome quartet – handpicked by Daniel Peddle Casting - looks incredible thanks in part to David Vandewal‘s distinctive styling. Each boy brings something different to the table in terms of appeal but together it makes for an enticing editorial.
