To say Yoko Ono is “unique” would be an understatement. The cultural icon is an artist, musician, writer, activist and now she can add fashion designer to that list. The 79-year-old widow of John Lennon just debuted a menswear capsule collection based on sketches she gave to her late husband as a wedding gift back in 1969. She teamed up with Opening Ceremony to create this very “interesting” line. I’d give anything to have a peek inside her brain during her creative process. Woman is either a creative genius or a little cray.
“I was inspired to create ‘Fashions for Men,’ amazed at how my man was looking so great,” she gushes about her creations. “I felt it was a pity if we could not make clothes emphasizing his very sexy bod. So, I made this whole series with love for his hot bod, and gave it to him as a wedding present.” – Yoko Ono
A line inspired by her favorite body parts of Lennon. Kinda creepy, right? Fashions for Men: 1969-2012 is an array of clothing featuring cut-outs, giant hand prints and mesh tops. Some of the more outlandish pieces include ventilated pants and a $400 transparent chest plaque. Each article of clothing was produced for a limited run of just 52- Ono’s lucky number. The line made its debut at Opening Ceremony stores in New York and Los Angeles. London and Tokyo locations will soon follow. Check out a few pieces below.
One Direction are known for their intense bromance and hands-on behavior with each other. Someone even made a video montage of all of their many homoerotic moments. Well, that person can now add some footage from the following video to that montage.
A onesie / jumpsuit brand called OnePiece just released a video called “OnePiece Hands made by One Direction“, where the band are grabbing each other’s junk and slapping each other’s asses, guided by hand prints on their onsies that are now being released as a new collection. As a side note, I ordered my first OnePiece onesie about a month ago and wore it to a friends one night just for fun lol (you can see a picture of me and Adam wearing onsies on my Instagram.
Watch the boys and all of their jumpsuit shenanigans in the video below. To check out the brand’s website and order your own OnePiece, click here. They’re not cheap, but they’re so worth it. It’s my favorite cozy/home outfit.
Baseball maybe America’s national pastime, but the Aussies know how to make swinging a bat super sexy. For their latest ad campaign, teamm8 looked to the sport for its creative direction. The Australian brand shows off their athletic wear and underwear line using Bondi fitness trainer Jesse Hogan as their muse. The results are simply steamy. Side note. During my trip to Sydney earlier this year for Mardi Gras, I stopped by teamm8′s store in the gay-borhood. It was totes cute.
Once again, teamm8 taps photographer James Demitri to snap their campaign titled “Dream Love Live“. Check out the 25-year-old fitness trainer in various states of undress. Whether he’s out in the field, undressed in a car backseat or taking an old-fashioned bath, Hogan sizzles. I’d definitely catch all his “pop flys” and slide into his “home plate”. LOL. Warning, a few of the pictures below are a bit risque so proceed with caution. No nudity, just a strategically placed glove and bat ;) Check out the photos below.
A few days ago, I posted a photo series snapped by Rick Day for ADON magazine. One of the models featured in the “Stiff Upper Lip” editorial was the sexy Brian Shimansky. With a recently debuted commercial for Versace fragrance Eros and the aforementioned fashion editorial, I figured it was high time to feature this handsome stud for my Model Behavior series.
Shimansky was born in West Caldwell, New Jersey in 1988. The 6’2″ male model was discovered at a John Mayer concert by a modeling scout. Within a week, he was signed with two agencies- Major Models and D’Management. Brian shot to fame when he was featured in D&G’s Spring/Summer 2009 campaign photographed by the famed Mario Testino. Since then, he’s booked campaigns for Saks Fifth Avenue, Blanco Denim, Macy’s, Versace and many more. His editorial credits include spreads in VMAN, Glamor Germany, Attitude, L’Official Hommes and Dansk.
In his spare time, Brian likes to fish, hike, mountain bike, snowboard and play baseball. Regarding the latter, Shimansky pitched for four years during his college years. I’d like to slide into his ‘home plate‘ ;) It wouldn’t be a Model Behavior post without a dirty sexual innuendo, right? LOL. Check out his athletic build below.
A couple days ago, I wrote about the prescreen of a new Anna Nicole Smith documentary that I watched called Addicted To Fame that is premiering today. I don’t think it’s any coincidence that Guess has just this week released photos of Smith’s daughter in a new ad campaign.
Her 6-year old daughter’s name is Dannielynn Birkhead and it appears she’s stepping into her mother’s footsteps at a young age. Her mother had appeared in Guess ads in 1992 and 1993, and those images were revived several times throughout her modeling career. Of course the ads that Birkhead are in are age appropriate and you can really see the resemblance to her mother. Such a pretty little girl!
“Dannielynn had fun paying tribute to her mom with the GUESS ad campaign, but it is back to school for her which is her focus. The first thing she asked is ‘When will I be on the shopping bags like Mommy?’” her father, Larry Birkhead, told USA Today. “Dannielynn has the same playful spirit that her mother had on set,” creative director Paul Marciano adds. “She is a second-generation GUESS girl.” Check out the photos below.
No wonder Sean O’Pry is currently Models.com No. 1 ranked male model and No. 2 raking money guy, dude keeps popping up everywhere. Once again, Lucky Brand taps the Georgia native for its holiday ad campaign. The concept is relatively simple with O’Pry against a white background while posing in various “lucky” situations for the American label. Sean looks absolutely adorable in ‘The Lucky One’ campaign, especially in the “lucky streak” photo ;)
To be perfectly honest, I don’t think I even own one thing from Lucky Brand. I decided to share these photos because O’Pry is one of my favorite male models of the moment. If you have a craving for more shirtless pics, be sure to check out my previous Model Behavior post on him. If you weren’t a fan before, you will be after all those pics.
With the end of Movember in sight, I thought posting this sexy fashion editorial was very appropriate. Three of today’s hottest male models posed for famed photographer Rick Day for a photo series titled “Stiff Upper Lip“. The pictures can be found in the premier issue of ADON magazine- a new fashion pop culture magazine from New York.
Daniel Garofali, Travis Hanson, and Brian Shiamansky don fake mustaches for the shoot. Even though you can’t see much of the clothing, it’s from German brand Matistache. The underwear Garofali is wearing in the above picture has an adorably cute mustache silhouette printed on the behind. I totally want a pair. Check out a couple more pictures from Day’s series below.
The Funky Trunks company is Australia’s iconic designer of the original retro swimming trunk, based in Victoria, Australia. They’ve recently expanded into underwear for the first time and are once again enlisted the help of openly gay Olympic Gold Medalist diver, Matthew Mitcham to promote the funky designs. Mitcham has been the “face,” swimwear ambassador, and spokesperson for the brand since March of 2010.
The last time we wrote about Mitcham was in August after he released a video on YouTube of him singing a cover of Beyonce’s “Single Ladies,” while he played the ukelele. Tyrell described it as “charming and absolutely adorable” in that post – and I’d have to agree.
Mitcham recently participated in a new sexy photoshoot where he wears several different designs from the new underwear collection and has fun with various different poses in the process. Included below are several pictures from the shoot as well as a behind the scenes video of the 24-year-old Australian in action.
