August’s Most Beautiful Man

Mostbeautifulman.com chooses Ryan Vigilant to be its most beautiful man of the month.  Vigilant has only been modelling for three years but already landed ad campaigns for “Levis,” “D&G” and “Nike,” as well as gracing the pages of “Maxim Style” and has been photographed by numerous elite photographers in the fashion industry: from Greg Vaughn and Joe Lally, in his first two years.  Obviously Mr. Vigilant’s career is flying.

Garrett Neff Still Working for Calvin Klein

Model Garrett Neff, who’s the face and body of Calvin Klein and Calvin Klein Jeans (remember the billboard for CK Man Fragrance?),  is set to be hitting billboards and magazines again this autumn for the new Calvin Klein’s Body and Body Stretch underwear.

According to DNR, “Shot on location in Miami by renowned photographer Bruce Weber, who shot Calvin Klein Underwear’s first ad campaign 25 years ago, the sexy black-and-white images epitomize the very clean yet sensual aesthetic that Calvin Klein has become so well known for. Neff, who is the face of the company’s fragrance, Calvin Klein Man, was featured alongside Kate Bosworth in the spring ad campaign for Calvin Klein Jeans. He succeeds Academy Award–nominated actor Djimon Hounsou as Calvin Klein’s latest body.


Surfer-turned-Armani Model Strikes a Grueling Pose

To me, the limelight wasn’t on the openly gay singer Sam Sparrow in the June edition of Attitude Magazine. The real star was the Australian surfer-turned-Armani model Jaymes Triglone who posed around the pool in swim wear. The layout “Before Night Falls” was done by the gifted Simon Harris. In one of the pages, we see Triglone supporting his body which was leaning on air with his pointed toes and hands on the rail but still looking effortless (and sexy!) Now that’s a professional.

Karl Lagerfeld puts on a reflective yellow vest for a new French road safety campaign, declaring, “It’s yellow, it’s ugly, it doesn’t match anything, but it can save your life.”

Bloomberg reports, “Lagerfeld agreed to pose in the shapeless protective apparel as part of a French government safety-awareness campaign, which was kicked off yesterday. The vest and a reflective triangle will become mandatory for all drivers and cyclists on July 1. The number of traffic deaths in France jumped 10 percent to 346 in May, the highest since the beginning of the year, the Ministry of Environment said on its Web site. Two cyclists have died in Paris since the introduction of free municipal bicycles last year.”

Michael Stipe Rogan sculpture

Two great events in one post? Fashion designer Rogan is opening a new boutique in New York, and New York magazine reports that R.E.M. frontman Michael Stipe will be having an art show there, exhibiting some bronze sculptures he did of cameras and music devices. Said Stipe:

“The radio alarm clock … changed forever the fragile state between sleeping and waking, allowing you to wake to your favorite radio station … The polaroid revolutionized photography by providing instant images available to anyone … Cassettes provided portable, compact music, altering forever the influence of radio as the individual became their own disc jockey.”

The items are not for sale but if you show up on the 27th you can pick up a Rogan Stipe T-shirt.
