With his shoots for French Vogue and work for GQ, Scott himself modeling in a Gap ad and his first major fashion campaign for DKNY Jeans below (with a newly banged Alana Zimmer), it’s evident that the former Bergdorf Goodman fashion director is poised to have an even more fantastic 2009.

Spotlight on Scott

May 2nd, 2008 |Posted by Betty contributor, French Vogue contributor, shot for the Gap by Mikael Jansson, Fantastic Man story on him and a blog read by millions. Scott Schuman of Sartorialist fame is officially having a moment. Represented by Jed Root, he might be their only talent being booked as much in front of the camera as behind the lens. The best part? He’s funny and humble and seems like a really nice guy. Hear him speak at the Met.
