editorialesque » malthe lund madsen + russell giardina for out

by Jeremy Danté

shot by giampaolo sgura, malth lund madsen & russell giardina of VNY models appear for this formal wear fashion spread from out magazine. impressively so, out magazine has drastically improved upon elements of editorial through styling & photographer bookings while at a rapid pace. given the fact that gays are a large creative force in fashion, styling & many other facets of the beauty industry- i hope that many other gay publications follow their lead to take a more active approach at capturing & representing men’s style, as well as fashion, as best seen here. while more gay publications seem distracted by sexual appeal rather than actual style, im very impressed & inspired by what is seen. styled by grant woolhead, everyone from tom ford to ferragamo is seen on the male couples backs while slight references to gay lifestyle are seen injected into a couple of the shots, while not jarringly associating with what might be considered ‘stereotypical’ gay. i love when a range of beauty & difference can be captured in a real, honest & stylized format. it’s all done with the utmost of class & sophistication.
