This is AMAZING. Exactly how I want to dress when I am in Paris!


Anonymous Marije said ... (7:09 PM) : 

ah what a beautiful face. And such wonderful hair! The outfit works too for me. Fashionable for sure, but also too gay. Someway that just doesn't feel right. Apart of that I totally love the all-black combination, and the way he holds his sigaret;)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:09 PM) : 

i am speechless!


Blogger Zoe said ... (7:12 PM) : 

He looks like a sculpture that someone put clothes on - very striking!


Anonymous mych said ... (7:17 PM) : 

I love that its ripped, but orderly, and without showing parts no one wants to see. Sophisticated rocker?


Blogger David C said ... (7:19 PM) : 

I love those fine hoodies. Though I don't like those jeans and especially don't like the t-shirt, I like how the garments merge together almost seamlessly and organically, like a second skin on him. It makes me think of a bat, as I'm sure you're alluding to as well.

beautiful gender-bender. I love the shirt and hair.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:35 PM) : 

There's this wonderful juxtaposition happening between his classic roman statue type of beauty (complete with lustrous marble skin) and his rock n' roll tight jeans and ripped t-shirt. Like the mona lisa in leather. He's just gorgeous.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:36 PM) : 

Hmm.. I'd wear those clothes too.

That's a look, and he carries it off, but it is not one I will wear any time soon.

What a coincidence - the same weekend that Bruno opens in cinemas we see this look. Please stick with the smart Milanese - this picture would only be inspiration for moths and Austrian TV's Funkyzeit.

Glad he's wearing that hoodie otherwise he could be mistaken for a rent boy.

Huba Huba...oh, and the shirt is nice too.

Tattered-tees or Jamaican shirts need a natural swagger swagger to be pulled off. This guy seems like a poser.... or model



Blogger DENNI said ... (2:37 PM) : 

god. he s totally amazing. great style



Anonymous Amor de Cosmos said ... (2:56 PM) : 

Cute, but not suitable for the outdoors here in northern Alberta. Mosquitoes in the summer, minus-50 in the winter, ya know!


Blogger KL said ... (3:05 PM) : 

Omg only in Paris. =D


Blogger Kristen said ... (3:08 PM) : 

I like the shirt, but I'm not sure I like it on him. He looks too 'beautiful' for it, I don't know he just doesn't pull it off. The pants on the other hand.. oh I can never resist a man in skin tight pants..

For a model he's got a strong personal style. And also for a model he's pretty wow.



Blogger AmbiguousUrbanite said ... (4:52 AM) : 

This is stunning, not so much for the clothes, as for the overall composition. On anyone else they might look ridiculous, but this guy gets away with it.

Oh - I really hate this. Pants too tight, shirt too slashed, neckline too low and wide, and it all looks so affected. Yuck. I want to rough him up a bit and confiscate his mirror.

I love it, bordering on the edge of gender roles. Very progressive, think about it in every futuristic movie men and women usually wear the same thing or very similar clothing. If i had that shirt i'd wear it He i always say if you got it flaunt it. Why not show people what i work hard for.

sophisticated 80s rocker?
please don't tell me that he's gay because if that was true i might cry...


Anonymous Questioner said ... (3:49 PM) : 

Some of you are probably too young to remember, but a long long time ago in an era called the late 1980's, the ripped punk rock t-shirt gave birth to it's last, ugliest, most-misbegotten child -- the tank top with spaghetti straos so long, they didn't cover the nipples. It started out on professional wrestlers and body builders, but it quickly spread to professional wrestling fans. This t-shirt may look OK on this model, but trust me, it won't look so good when Wal-Mart knocks it off and guys with lots of body hair and beer bellies pick it up. Let's just all agree to stop this trend before it begins.

This guy really looks like for me as a ballet dancer, he reminds me young Rudolf Noureev just coming in Paris, still wild but Oh so powerful and free.
This guy is well built with strong features and bones but still is very thin.
A young god of dance... well who can say ?
