Who’d You Rather: Poulter VS Francis

In: Fashion, Totally GAY!, Tyrell

This Who’d You Rather is so steamy, you might want to have a cold shower before diving forward. I felt like I hadn’t done a real good model pairing in a while so I went on the hunt and found my mission quite successful. I first stumbled on option one, Levi Poulter in a DNA magazine a while back and thought he’d be great. But I was lucky to find his kissing partner in crime, Paul Francis and thought they’d be a perfect match.

Now when I say “kissing partner in crime,” I actually mean it. These two hotties were photographed by David Vance in a smoking photo book titled “Kissing Paul.” According to the research I’ve done, the concept for the photos was totally Levi’s idea and after scoping out some more pics of Paul, I don’t blame him. You have to wonder if the two stopped kissing once the shoot was over. Don’t worry friends, I’ve included some of their make out session in the photos below. But let’s get to know our two models first.

Levi Poulter grew up in Utah and dreamed of being a personal trainer. After someone advised him to pursue modeling, he packed his bags and headed south. He walked into the Ford Models Miami office not soon after he arrived and was signed right away. His first gig with Abercrombie took him forward for a few years before booking bigger clients and landing magazine covers for DNA and L’UOMO. On his spare time, he loves to hang at the beach and play soccer.

Paul Francis was born in Philadelphia, PA and has a Colombian and British background giving him that ambiguous yet delicious good look that you can’t get enough of. Paul also lives in Miami and works not only as a model but an actor and professional dancer as well. Paul’s modeling brought him over to Europe for many years in and landed him back in Miami for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in ’09. Paul also likes to paint, draw and play video games.

Do you know this male model above? Well get to know him because he’s one of the top male models in the fashion industry. This 19-year-old Brazilian beauty hit my radar when he covered Coitus magazine along with fellow Armani Exchange model, River Viiperi. Following that, I started seeing Francisco in A|X ads everywhere and now, he’s covering the popular Carbon Copy magazine, showing off his chiseled physique. Because if you’ve got it, flaunt it right?

Francisco’s modeling career began when he won a contest in São Paulo for a contract with the famous Ford Models. He exploded into the fashion scene in 2009 walking the runways in Milan and Paris for Gucci and Dior Homme. He’s also the highest rated Brazilian male model at #14 on the list of the 50 Top Male Models. However, don’t let his young, youthful look fool you. This Brazilian bombshell stands tall at 6’2″ and has a size 10 shoe. And you know what they say about boys with big feet… I’ll leave the rest up to your own imagination.

Model Behavior: Sam Way

In: Donovan, Fashion, Totally GAY!

Last week I posted an Antidote Magazine photo editorial that featured the boys of Dolce & Gabbana. While some of my favorites, Noah Mills and Adam Senn, appeared in the photo spread, it was another male model that topped the poll beating out my two boys. I wanted to make our readers’ voices heard, so I decided to dedicate this week’s Model Behavior to your favorite.

Meet 23-year-old Sam Way. The British born male model first garnered international acclaim when he appeared alongside Kate Moss in a Vogue Hommes pictorial photographed by Bruce Weber. Since then, he’s appeared in numerous ad campaigns and magazine editorials making him one of the industry’s top male models. You might recognize him from his print work for Diesel, Topman, Abercrombie & Fitch, Dolce & Gabanna, Pull & Bear or Tommy Hilfiger. For the latter he was the brand’s face for awhile.

A few of the publications he’s appeared in are GQ and the French gay magazine, Tetu. Here’s a personal anecdote regarding his Tetu cover. Typically when I go on vacation, instead of purchasing a magnet, shot glass or other traditional souvenir, I buy a local mag. That way I can document the month and year I was in that particular destination. As you can guess, I purchased Sam Way’s Tetu cover back in October 2007 on my first trip to Paris. Check out that cover and a slew of other sexy pics of him below.

Every now and again, a picture of some sexy guy pops up and you wonder who it is. Then, you do a little research and the result blows you away. This would be one of those times for me.

I first saw this model (pictured above) as a young eighteen year old posing with his sister in a Burberry ad campaign. After that, this stud continued on the path of modeling as his sister shined in the spotlight as a leading actress in one of the best selling, most popular film series’ of all time.

In a recent photo shoot with Harry Crowder, we get a look at him all grown up and with longer hair. The model poses in a coat with fur lining, his pajamas and of course shirtless. But just which celebrity star is he related to? Find out below.

Love, Set, Match. Janko Tipsarevic definitely scores a Grand Slam win with this hot underwear photo shoot. Sure Novak Djokovic is currently the No. 1 player on the ATP tour, but Tipsarevic wins the title of hottest Serbian tennis player, especially after this modeling stint. The 27-year-old is the new face body for under apparel company Extreme Intimo. For their latest ad campaign, they asked the tennis pro to drop trou and show off their latest line and his sexy toned body.

Speaking of hot body, Janko recently credited his best showing at the US Open due to his recent 100% dedication to tennis and his fitness. Judging on the pics and his recent results, his refocus has paid off ten fold, or in this case in a six pack. With Rafael Nadal stripping down for Armani Underwear and Spanish player Fernando Verdasco showing off his Calvins for their X campaign, pro tennis players seem to be the athlete models du jour. I love me some tennis, so keep it coming. Check out Janko’s pics below.

While her BFF Rihanna is hawking Armani Jeans, Katy Perry is also busy with her very own endorsement deal. Since Perry loves to change her colorful wigs as often as we change our underwear, it’s only natural GHD Wigs tapped the singer to be the face of their products. Famed photographer David LaChapelle snapped the images for the company’s holiday 2011 ad campaign. Thought LaChapelle had retired from commercial photography a couple years back. Guess, he’s back.

To promote GHD’s new limited edition style Scarlet, the ad campaign chose to revolve the images around a popular Disney animated film. Perry poses for two visuals where the singer dons the personas of Snow White and the Evil Queen. What is up with all the recent Snow White love as of late. First the two rival motion pictures and now this. I digress. The Scarlet wig is inspired by the 20s and art deco era. The retro style falls in line with all the looks that were seen in all the fall/winter collections. If I was a girl SLASH drag queen, I’d totally get one.

Rihanna may be taking an Irish farmer’s advice to cover up too seriously. Instead of disrobing, the Bajan beauty is actually putting clothes on for her new Armani Jeans commercial. The black and white short film was filmed in New York by director Johan Renck. It features the 23-year-old singer channeling her inner spy. Overall, it’s a youthful sexy clip which should make Giorgio Armani happy. It’s exactly why the designer picked RiRi to become his brand ambassador:

“Rihanna is a great artist. Her personality, charisma and energy made it a pleasure to work with her. She perfectly embodies the contemporary and youthful spirit of Emporio Armani Underwear and Armani Jeans.”

The film noir-inspired clip begins with Rihanna sitting in the back seat of a limo. She’s waiting for something or someone, but exactly what, we’re not sure of yet. Then, a hot mysterious man drives up and gives her a bag. Inside, obviously, is filled with Armani Jeans clothing. She puts them on and then sultry steps out of the limo and walks to an elevator. The doors open up and then… surprise, it’s the mysterious man. I wonder what kind of “trouble” will take place behind closed doors.

A while back our favorite photographer, Mike Ruiz gave me the heads up that he was working on a sexy new book with 100% of the proceeds going to the Gay Men’s Health Crisis (GMHC). To my delight, this morning he sent me some of the photos, a video montage, and information on how you can attend the book launch! From the teaser below, “Pretty Masculine” is pretty awesome, and it’s all for a great cause. So what exactly is this #prettymasculine concept? Mike explains:

Pretty Masculine is the apogee of my latest effort to capture humanity out of context. It is the culmination of my desire to incorporate my hyper-stylized and fantasy-driven style of photography and reinterpret the male ideal from a new perspective. It has been my intention to open a forum of sorts and, in so doing, inspire thought and dialogue with respect to finding alternative ways of looking at the world around us. In this case, to look at masculinity beyond what might be considered the stereotypical man.”

The photos are stunning. Check out some of the photos below and watch the video invitation on where and when the book launch will be. You’ll be happy to know that most of the male models in the book will be in attendance. The book becomes available at www.mikeruiz.com/store this coming Friday, October 7th. Until then, tantalize your tastebuds with the teasers below.
