COVER: SEAN O’PRY, CLEMENT CHABERNAUD, NOAH MILLS ET AL BY MARK SELIGER & NICHOLAS PRAKAS, DETAILS, MARCH 2014
Posted on February 12, 2014
Having become accustomed to the standard uninspired Details magazine covers featuring the actor of the moment, I was pleasently taken aback by the sleek, perfectly styled & composed fold out of their March 2014 issue featuring top male models Sean O’Pry, Arthur Kulkov, Mathias Lauridsen, Garrett Neff, Simon Nessman, RJ Rogenski, Tyson Ballou, Clément Chabernaud, Noah Mills & Andres Velencoso Segura, all donning a colourful array of spring garments for this bold, clean & downright handsome cover.
As the press release for the Mark Seliger & Nicholas Prakas lensed issue rightly states, “Men are their own tastemakers now and the Details reader doesn’t necessarily need to see it on an actor or an athlete in order to find a way to connect with fashion.” With the influx & expansion of social media over the past few years, Models have become much more mainstream, accessible to the public & therefore ventured into the “celebrity” status anyway, (Cara Delevingne is always in the Daily Mail or Metro for something or another), so I for one welcome the cover change with open arms…literally. That said, two minor “details” do somewhat irk me. Firstly the noticeable absence of Mr David Gandy & secondly the lack of “diversity” on the cover – Corey Baptiste doesn’t seem to make an appearance, if you catch my drift…
