The Very Sexy Brothers of Arcadia

The Very Sexy Brothers of Arcadia

Brothers of Arcadia is an amazingly erotic four-minute short fashion film for Thierry Mugler, which was directed by Branislav Jankic. The film features a number of mostly-naked men with stunning physiques to grab your attention. It starts off slowly with a dramatic, black and white beachside romp set to classical music, with the leading men wearing nothing but briefs and some bling. However, the mood quickly changes when vibrant colors emerge, as well as a bumping techno jam by Jessica 6. Viewers  are transported into a steamy underground photo-shoot that seems to have a Greek gods and soldiers theme, which is appropriate because these dudes are, like, chiseled from marble.

Iké Udé: Photographic Portraits and Sartorial Anarchy

Photography by: Iké Udé, NYC

Self: Photographic Portraits and Sartorial Anarchy is a collection of photographs by Iké Udé, which is on view at New York’s Stux Gallery through June 25, 2011. The exhibition presents a number of portraits with a simmering intensity that feature subjects ranging from himself, to fashion designer Manolo Blahnik, to financial executive Reggie Van Lee. The photographs show a highly stylized world of color, attitude, and object, making their domain as much anarchic as desirable. According to Iké, sartorial anarchy is an expression of dandyism that is enhanced by the indeterminate delicacy of pose, gestures, tilt, determinate lines, or a thrust here-and-there, all harmonized by an agreeable countenance.

Artist Iké Udé was born in Lagos, Nigeria, moved to the States in the 1980s and presently works in New York City. His artwork is in the permanent collections of New York’s Guggenheim Museum and the Smithsonian National Museum, Washington DC. Udé is the founder and publisher of aRUDE Magazine, a quarterly devoted to art, culture, style and fashion. He is the author of Style File: The World’s Most Elegantly Dressed and was selected as one of Vanity Fair’s 2009 International Best Dressed Originals.

Annie Leibovitz and Mikhail Baryshnikov: One Moment, Two Stars

Annie Leibovitz and Mikhail Baryshnikov: One Moment, Two Stars

After shooting Louis Vuitton advertisement campaigns for the last three years, Annie Leibovitz got in front of the lens, with dancer and choreographer Mikhail Baryshnikov, for Vuitton’s newest campaign in the Core Values series.  The series has previously featured legends such as Sean Connery, Mikhail Gorbachev, Keith Richards, Buzz Aldrin, Roman and Sofia Coppola, and Catherine Deneuve.  The longtime friends posed in Leibovitz’s New York City studio, where the subtle lighting captured a tender moment between the two old friends.

The Modern Man: Macho Replaced by Sexual Ambiguity

The Likeable Pete Wentz: A Lightning Rod for Sexual Ambiguity

An Interview with Pete Wentz by Out Magazine

An interview with Pete Wentz by Out Magazine concluded that if people are confused about Wentz’s sexuality, he deserves at least half the credit for it. Onstage he’ll lick a stripe up the neck of his bass or his bandmates’ guitars. He hooks his chin over singer Patrick Stump’s shoulder, mouthing his own words against Stump’s cheek. When they covered the Killers’ Mr. Brightside on a recent tour, he would punctuate the line “it was only a kiss” by aiming with varying success somewhere in the vicinity of Stump’s mouth.

He has no qualms talking about his attraction to men (including a big, stupid crush on John Mayer), which still puts him on a very short list of famous young male musicians and actors who haven’t been convinced that confession is in and of itself a career killer. Pete Wentz doesn’t care if you laugh at him, if you call him a fag, or that other f word: a failure. So maybe it’s time for a little “fuck you” of our own, at least to the idea that a guy can’t be a good queer role model unless he actually has sex with men. Wentz could be the world’s best spokesman to a generation of kids who grew up with gay-straight alliances but who haven’t all made the leap to full acceptance.

The Modern Man: Fashion and Sexual Ambiguity

The following is a video presentation of the Yves Saint Laurent spring 2009 collection. Instead of a traditional runway show, he presented his new line in an artistic film starring Jack Huston (Angelica Huston’s nephew) in the clothes. It’s got everything any good avant-garde fashion movie should: naked skinny people, hypnotic music, French speaking, a dashing man, and even-more-dashing clothes. And it’s even tall-and-skinny, instead of horizontal!
