Hedi Slimane is a very good fashion photographer and in the last year she did two different editorial, one with male Super-Models (SUPER-MODELS, Vogue Hommes International, Spring/Summer 2009), those men who left their name in a world, the fashion industry, that usually is the kingdom of female models, and the other editorial (Waiting in the Wings, VMan magazine, Fall/Winter 2009) with the "next" name of the English movie industry. It's strange, but the feeling of the two editorials is almost the same, the only difference is those age lines around the eyes of the vintage men.

“I was spotted when I was 20, when I was studying political science, and it was a complete leap into the unknown. It was a dizzying about turn. I’m now 45 and still working. I was almost always drunk on the catwalk. Mescal, you know, I was very wild. But also always on time and always OK – which is normal when you get paid 30.000 euro to go to Seychelles. I know how to take a good portrait. I always think “Fuck me”. That’s my secret. I live in Amsterdam, and I have three kids. I swim an hour a day. I’m off the drugs and alcohol. I’m an actor, a photographer, and write poetry.”

“I head a documentary and a production company, Caltana Creative. I spent a lot, gave it away, lent it. I’ve made mistakes in business, lost money in stocks. I love travelling, taking friends with me, and partying. I bought tons of gadgets and musical instruments. It was my thing. The Dim underwear ad, where I was naked in an apartment – that was the high point. People went crazy. I remember cinema audiences going bananas when it came on. Sex life is a dream! (laughs). There were loads of gorgeous women. But in between more long-term relationships.” ( DIM ad )
Douglas Booth( more pics )
Douglas Booth is one of the new crop of willowy boys appearing opposite Emma Watson in the latest Burberry campaign. Burberry's creative director Christopher Bailey calls him 'an exceptionally talented young guy who we feel is going to be a huge star. He has a really modern British look and style... he's also down-to-earth and a pleasure to be around.' The 17-year-old is currently working on projects by Oscar winners Julian Fellowes and Tony and Ridley Scott. As a result, comparisons with Twilight star Robert Pattinson are already being made. 'If someone came along and said, "Take this pill and you'll be as famous as Robert Pattinson," I wouldn't say no, but I'd think about it first. It's a lovely place to be but it's also scary. He's commanding double-digit millions after just a couple of big movies. The whole of the teenage girl population, including my girlfriend and my sister and all their friends, is captivated by him. I'm sure he captivates lots of boys as well.' Douglas may find that his own exotic looks (thanks to a half-Spanish, half-Dutch mother and English father) are no less captivating to a young female audience. 'In my first audition someone said I looked Burmese,' he comments. His mother is an artist, his father works in shipping for Citigroup, and his 18-year-old sister is also an artist. ( Read more... )
Larry Scott( more pics )
Even after a decade Larry Scott remains one of the industry's most coveted faces. After his iconic turn for Armani (who can forget his ten years as the face of Acqua Di Gio) as well as work with nearly every designer Scott continues to book choice jobs. With a recent resurgence between the pages of Interview and Vogue Hommes International Larry is poised to continue his winning streak. Discovered in San Francisco by a photographer, Larry Scott is a prime example of a male model fairy tale. Hitting ultimate fame as the face of Giorgio Armani's Acqua Di Gio fragrance for a decade, Scott has become part of the elite generation of male supermodels. “I had just six dollars in my pocket when I arrived in Milan. In week two, I was doing the Versace ad campaign and had 5.000 dollars up front. But I didn’t live it up – no drinking or partying. I was the good male model – I could dance, pose nude, and I made sure they always got the good photo. Where I did have problems was away from the camera. There’s less control once you’re outside the studio. I play the flute and I’m a photographer. I had some disappointments and went into a depression, but that’s all behind me now.”

“I’ve give up acting to concentrate on my courses at the School of Fine Arts in Zurich. I attended an audition with Universal organized by Drew Barrymore for the role of Robin in Batman. A Los Angeles queen of casting told me I had talent, but that I was too nervous, unstable and lonely, and I didn’t think to ask her to give me the time to work on it. That was really dumb of me. There was a real sense of the brotherhood among all those male models – like a mythical family. I wanted to set up a labour union so that we could control prices, but I didn’t manage it.”
