New York modelizing update:
At Bari, a coffee shop in SoHo, I had a close encounter with a Gandolfi look-a-like. For a while I was almost convinced it was him, only I think his face was too narrow. I'm really not sure, but I do know he had long, Gandolfi-like hair, and was hanging out with two ugly guys and one other model look-a-like (I couldn't figure out who, blond short hair and a round face) and made out a lot of with his older, Asian girlfriend (we were guessing she was a make-up artist or hairstylist). Even if he's not Gandolfi, the boy had to be a model, and I kept blushing from looking at him, he was so pretty. I didn't have the courage to take a picture, sadly.
When my modelizing companion gets up here Saturday, maybe we'll have better luck.

So occasionally I experience this craving for non-osteoporotic/Rxdieting/motherF*CKING
short/Eurotrash boy(s), and I've acquired a taste for fratboy/ploughboy/waiter-reminiscent, omg!1-seventeen-year-old, 6'1'' German and new Miu Miu face, Conrad Matschke. I keep finding new photos in one of his online agency portfolios, and I think it's being updated with really recent (like this month/season) publications. If you have an idea of which magazine(?) this is, please please tell me. ( Large graphics under the cut.Collapse )
Also: *chokes on her own tongue*Favorite food: Traditional German, like kassler (pork chop) with kraut -- but only when it's cooked by my grandma!
Favorite books: Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged, Jostein Gaarder's Sophie's World: A Novel About the History of Philosophy, and E=mc2: A Biography of the World's Most Famous Equation.
Your ideal Saturday night: Going out with my grandpa. Unfortunately, he died a long time ago.
Update: According to our-a-list.net, the editorial is from 10+ Men A/W 2003

the twenty-second letter
V Men's apparently hit newsstands on the 30th. I haven't seen it in the places near me, but at $4.95 it's priced to move reasonably well, and I'll be passing through New York City next weekend, so I ought to be able to pick it up for anybody who wants one.
Also: Nick from V Models
, Models.com's model of the week. He's in the Full Vividness editorial by Ellen Von Uenworth in the July/August L'Uomo Vogue.

I love my obsession.
Ever want to see behind the scenes of a model shoot? Ever want to see how dull and cheesy it seems? Go here
and click on Sportsear, the first slideshow, for some really amusing pictures (and mostly amusing captions) of Tommy models, including Gandolfi. My favovrites include -- Gandolfi holding a umbrella and a caption about the history of umbrellas, Gandolfi posing on a car and the caption saying it's hard work for models to pose. The list goes on and on.
I couldn't figure out how to screen capture or save any of them on my Mac, so if someone does I'll be greatful.

Has anyone checked this
, at least, is featured in it. . . aha, probably to no one's surprise.)

Calling all modelizers!
My roommate is trying to figure out the name of the model behind the cut. He's Banana Republic from last spring sometime. If you can figure out his name she will love you forever.( rain rain, go away...Collapse )

1. Here, there, and everywhere -- over 50 shots of Federico Moyano collected over the past year on firstVIEW. A directory of links here
, so as not to overload your connection. ( *Collapse )
2. Hats and suits and B&W OMG -- Benjamin Brillouet and Tobias Brahmst in two pictures I hadn't seen before on NeXt. ( *Collapse )
-- "Major's Patrick Sullivan and friend tower over Allure's cutie Ro." AHAHAHA.

My local newsstand has, it seems, three copies of the July/August L'Uomo Vogue still on sale. This is the mammoth issue that I've been posting scans of recently; unlike the ones being offered on eBay, this is being sold with the Vogue Sport bonus issue, which is about two hundred pages thick and also features the Beckhams.
I've put two copies on hold, one for fantasiestucke
, if she still wants it, and the other for whoever would like one. If there's anybody reading this who wants me to buy them a copy, just speak up. The one that I didn't put on hold should still be there tomorrow morning. ;)
They're pretty expensive -- $15.95 + ~$1.00 sales tax + shipping + $1.30 for bubble wrap envelope to ship it in. Depending on what shipping option you use, it could be anywhere from $2.00 for media mail, which takes 7 - 21 days, to $8.00 for regular first-class, which takes three to five. If you do want a copy, just send me your address, and we'll work it out.

Selected scans from the July/August L'Uomo Vogue 2003, copies of which are available on Ebay. There were about forty pages of editorial content in it, and there are a lot of really great ads that I'll work on getting scanned in, but part of the problem is that a lot of the best photographs were two-page deals. I'm a really shitty photo manipper, so I can't quite get the crease to disappear, and I'm not quite willing to sacrifice my copy of L'Uomo by cutting pages out.
But anyway, some scans. There are at least three editorials that I didn't scan in any pictures from because I didn't have time. I'll get them in tomorrow afternoon when I hit the scanner hard. I've got a backlog of Patrick Sullivan pictures to scan, including some where he is in the funniest-looking white suit ever.( Mm.Collapse )
And have I mentioned the fact that whenever I get depressed about my life, I take a look at what the troubles of the rich and the famous?
Mipam, you may remember, is listed as one of Models.com's top 50 male models.

I remember when Tobias used to be the hottest thing to come into focus on a camera lens. ( Catalog pictures.Collapse )Also
. A different model, apparently from the same magazines of that time. <33333 (Oh my god, where are the old L'Uomo Vogues when you need them?)

The scanners weren't cooperating, but you get the general idea. If there are interested parties, I'll redo the specific model shots; I didn't know whether you guys had these pictures already but. . .( Penfold, looking pretty schway in Burberry.Collapse )( Facconable ad with Gandolfi. Die, interlacing, die.Collapse )
Editorial from Spring/Summer LFX Freestyle, a fashion magazine out of London that has Johnny Knoxville on the cover wearing a "I Fucked Mick Jagger" T-shirt. Editorials name is "Toile de nimes," and was shot by Sofia Sanchez and Mauro Mongiello, with styling by Laurent Dombrowicz. Models are Rob and Marlon from Bananas, Raphi at Madison, and Sebsatien at Success. There are two shots that are missing out of the batch, but yeah.( Ten shots at about 60K apiece.Collapse )

LE RETOUR DES BELAYAGES. OR SOMETHING.
From the August (?) copy of Upstreet magazine, a French fashion magazine. The Editorial is called "Looking for Art," and the model is Abel from Bananas.( Six images at 180K apiece.Collapse )
Abel's also on the cover, but the copy of the magazine I have is terribly defaced on that side with all kinds of price tags and stickers and wrinkles and water marks. -_-
If you can get your hands on it, though, I really, really do recommend Upstreet. There are two more excellent editorials in it, and there's actually an English edition floating around with great articles on design, music, and general cultural notes -- and, man, it even reads like a real magazine
. You know, one that you'd buy if you None of Citizen K's sketchy English translations; these are well-written, interesting articles, and the print quality is absolutely divine. About eight dollars at your local newsstand.
You sort of have to take just about everything that Popbitch says with a bit of salt, but this little snippet form this Thursday made me laugh and laugh and laugh.
>> The camera always lies <<
Tara and the tabloids spread the bullshit
Tara Palmer-Tompkinson was recently splashed
across the tabloids in paparazzi shots with her
"sexy toy-boy Alistair" in the Caribbean.
But these "snatched" photos of a holidaying
couple were actually a sham. Alistair is a male
model, flown over to make-out with Tara for
this photo shoot. He claimed to friends he'd
never even met her before.
. . . I wonder how many male models are named Alistair and, secondly, how one gets one's hands on a model for the purpose of making out like that. I do believe that there's a grant available at my school for nonmajors who want to get a start in the performing arts. . .

The camera is sort of back online, but my hands are still terribly shocky. I've been taking hit after hit of wonderfully sweet male modelizing from Details, Flaunt, and L'Uomo Vogue. The Details is the September one, and it's got Ashton Kutcher on the front of it wearing a tighty whitey and looking very much not like his usual teen idol-y.( There's also this picture of Jeppe for Polo in it.Collapse )( Also, some crack assed digital snaps of an editorial called House Call, shot by Alex Cayley, and with a model that I can't ID.Collapse )
Another reason to get this Details: it's the issue of Details that's mentioned in this
delicious little piece of gossip up at Chichappens
, which finally looks like it's back from hiatus. Thank God, and turn to page 224 of Details for the article on V&R. The picture of them on that page has both Viktor & Rolf each wearing a piece of the ridiculously cute and clever tuxedo suit that shows up in the Full Vividness editorial from August L'Uomo. Awww. They're designers that can wear their own clothes!
For my first post to the community, I bring to you an exciting interview
with Mr. Michael Gandolfi
done by Tommy, where he's the new face.
Highlights include the fact that his favorite band
is 2 Pac, his best friend is a girl named Sandra, he wants to be an actor when he "grows up," and he has no idea who Justin or Pharrell are. God, I could go on for HOURS about the contents of this interview, but I won't bore you. Current Mood: silly AND sexy

If you haven't already, I really, really recommend picking up the July - August L'Uomo Vogue. It's 15.95, yes, but the edition that I picked up at B&N this afternoon had a bonus L'Uomo Vogue Sport that was almost as thick as the main attraction and had some really, really fantastic pictures in it. The July-August L'Uomo itself, though, is so worth the price in and of itself even though I didn't recognize any of the models in it because the photography and the styling is that good
(The digital camera is out of commssion, so all you'll get is a ( Editorial list.Collapse )
The other major find of the day: Nylon. I'm not a big fan of their women's section, but the women's section for September is bundled with a men's Nylon. It's on the thin side, but man. Not only is there a fantastic article on Michael Pitt, but there's also a gorgeous boy in a Buffalo jeans ad, and a pair of terribly cute editorials.
Also, this week's Time magazine has a Ralph Lauren ad with a model that I don't recognize -- it's not Pasty, Sullie, Jeppe, or Avedon, and he's pretty goodlooking. Any ideas?
