The legendary advertising guru George Lois, rips magazines a new one. ““Meanwhile you go to a newsstand, there’s about 200 magazines that all look the same. They got pictures of somebody — some asshole — I’ll never understand how editors and publishers think — showing just a famous person with blurbs all over their face. I’ll never understand why they think that would be something people would want to buy. I don’t get it.” Yes, we don’t get it either, George.

Rico Suave

VMan’s annual model search always finds an impressive face and this years winner Rico Nieves, has all the makings of a star. Joining the ranks of Petey Wright and AJ Abualrub before him, Rico graces the magazine’s cover and takes center stage in an editorial by Nick Knight.  The bold caption, “the making of the new Latino supermodel” certainly gets your attention.

Rookies of the Year

September 3rd, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

VMan is one of the select few men’s magazines who really gets it when it comes to male models. Their selection is consistently impeccable, utilizing the talents of established stars as well as the freshest faces so its no surprise that their F/W issue features a portfolio of the current crop of standouts. Chad Pitman shoots the most valuable players including the ‘All Stars’  – the true male supermodels, the contenders – boys with incredible bookings poised to take over and of course the Rookies – VMan‘s own model search winners. True to form Petey Wright, CJ Hancock and Jake Madden all look stellar in Raf Simons’ refined suits.
