Hero Worship

November 5th, 2013 |Posted by jonathanshia

Famed photographer Guy Aroch may be best-known for his stunning shots of gorgeous girls, but he proves himself just as talented with the guys in a stellar new editorial from the latest issue of HERO Magazine, featuring superstars Clément Chabernaud and Mathias Lauridsen suffused in Aroch’s trademark lambent glow. Styled by Gro Curtis, the two legends wear the season’s top collections, from Balenciaga and Lanvin to Louis Vuitton and Dior Homme, adding an upscale twist to the softly rundown cabin that serves as the relaxed and quiet backdrop. The rich, gorgeous portraits have an intimate feel, with Chabernaud and Lauridsen caught in lost moments of thought, the perfect instants passing by in the fading light of day.

Suburbia

April 19th, 2013 |Posted by models.com

For the Summer/Fall 2013 issue titled “Suburban Heat,” London men’s magazine HERO takes on life in small-town America. Constructing a world of voyeuristic intrigue rife with the mysteries of the mundane, photographer Christian Ferretti and stylist Gro Curtis collaborate on an epic story steeped in sleek style and the secrets kept behind closed doors. Playing the family caught in this dark fashion fantasy are a trio of models- Grayson Gettys, Ben and Ian, headed by Karen Bjornson‘s austere matriarch. The story follows Bjornson presiding over bathtime, the boys playing with a pet cat, and the family sharing a meal. What else are they up to? Peer inside HERO’s suburbia and see for yourself in the exclusive look below. (Text Matt Myer)

Put A Ring On It

April 30th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Is there a single more ubiquitous luxury item than the Givenchy couture nose rings? Sure those Prada car print skirts are everywhere and you can’t walk down the street without seeing a Celine luggage tote, but nothing is more noticeable than five pounds of metalwork dangling from a beautiful girl’s face.

Add to this that the Givenchy nose rings have all the elements of an editorial frontrunner; undeniable visual impact – check, expensive – check, hard to get your hands on – double check. There was absolutely no way editors could resist themselves and as such the rings have been showing up in every magazine imaginable for the past few months.

Are you still enjoying seeing these beautiful ornaments – or are you ready to move on to the next trend? We admit to experiencing a bit of Givenchy fatigue – considering that the pieces are always styled with Givenchy looks, which is nice but not exactly exciting. Wouldn’t it be interesting to see these paired with something else – maybe mix in one of those other overexposed editorial favorites, Balenciaga Darth Vader visors anyone?
