Magazine honors 'legendary' male models
Tuesday 17 November 2009
While the female league of supermodels features names that ring familiar even to fashion 'outsiders' (think Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer or Naomi Campbell), there aren't many male counterparts that come to mind. American
VMAN, an offshot of
V Magazine, is now giving them the praise that they deserve.
For their new issue, which hits US newsstands November 17, VMAN's fashion editors asked male top models such as the Swedes Marcus Schenkenberg and Alex Lundqvist to pose in their 'Legendary' shoot, featuring the latest denim looks.
"The idea was to pair the established legendary male supermodels such as Marcus Schenkenberg, Joel West, Tony Ward, and Alex Lundqvist with the new crop of guys that VMAN has really pushed into that strata-Brad, RJ and Tyson," Jay Massacret, senior fashion editor at VMAN, told Relaxnews.
Lundqvist became famous as Helena Christensen's counterpart in a Versace campaign in 1994 and booked major jobs for Lagerfeld and Guess thereafter. Schenkenberg, maybe the best-known among the 'legendary' models, caused furor in ads for Calvin Klein and Iceberg.
Joel West is nowadays maybe most familiar to the public through his TV characters on shows such as Star Trek and CSI: Miami, while wild child Tony Ward achieved additional popularity by being Madonna's boyfriend in the early 1990s and appearing in her SEX book.
