Lan | PULP No. 7 Spring 2013 (Art direction: Hung Vanngo; Photography: Arkan Zarkhov)
Every so often a magazine cover comes along and like a Stradivarius manages to play notes no ordinary magazine could even imagine producing. The above cover of the latest PULP, brainchild of ck one color cosmetics brand ambassador Hung Vanngo, featuring Vietnamese model Lan, is certainly no exception. Dispensing with the superfluities of attention-seeking headlines, the cover girl, exquisitely made-up, truly sings. For this cover, Lan wears Chanel couture.
Speaking of Garrett Neff, this page would be remiss were it not to make even passing mention of his L’Officiel Hommes China cover story for the month of May by photographer Liu Jun. Titled “Lost in Manhattan,” the Brett Bailey-styled story embarks on an odyssey through the steamy streets the Meatpacking District. Garrett is joined by fellow Wilhelmina model Chloe Memisevic.
Garrett Neffis the face of Acqua Essenziale, a new fragrance for men by Salvatore Ferragamo. If you have enjoyed Garrett’s viral video persona that he has crafted with joyful abandon on Vine, then this advertising spot for a fragrance inspired by water will be all the more rewarding for the sultry side he shows. There is Garrett standing against a wall. There is Garrett’s open shirt rolling in the breeze. There is Garrett’s open shirt coming off. There is Garrett walking with purpose. There is seductive Garrett without shirt before a still pool of water — cut to voice over and product shot. Despite the running time of nearly seven Vines, the whole experience is all the richer for Garrett Neff.
Soo Joo — x4 | Vogue Korea June 2013 (Photography: Hyea Won Kang)
Soo Joo features on the June cover of Vogue Korea, her first, photographed by Hyea Won Kang. It will surprise no one who has followed the model’s explosive career that she wears Chanel for her first Vogue cover — she has walked twice for the storied French house since January. In a season so bright, so blinding, Soo Joo was at least well prepared for her cover splash and is pictured with strong eyebrows and black parasol. Hot, hot, hot!
