CHRIS PRATT FOR GQ

Screen Shot 2015-05-18 at 11.35.53 AM

Here’s a first look at superstar Chris Pratt’s new GQ cover for June shot by Peggy Sirota available on newsstands May 19th. It’s nearly impossible to think of anyone more versatile, or likable in Hollywood today. Pratt’s unconventional rise to stardom often required taking a second, third or fourth look. That moment for me came when he showed up in 2012’s “Zero Dark Thirty” looking bad ass as rough shod Navy SEAL “Justin.” Jurassic World, his latest big ticket summer movie, hits theaters June 12th.

GQ JULY: EMILY RATAJKOWSKI

 

GQ July 2014, the cover everyone is talking about. An excerpt on dating from the accompanying feature article (why you’re going to buy it): “Generally, I just think there is a real lacking in men knowing how to hit on women. I have this whole running joke with someone: What Would Denzel Do? Like, you don’t think about how many days you should wait to call the girl—you just do it when you want. Fuckin’ Denzel. You do what you want, you know what you want.” On newsstands today.

 

THE GQ COMEDY ISSUE

 

A fun video highlighting the launch of GQ’s fifth annual comedy issue, featuring James Franco on the cover, edited by Gordon Von Steiner, with the song “A Difficult Subject” by The Insider. Here’s the full song taking you into the weekend: (more…)

THE GQ STYLE BIBLE

Keep an eye out for GQ’s “Style Bible” April issue, hitting newsstands this week. There are three separate covers, featuring Bruno Mars, Jimmy Fallon and Jason Bateman, all shot by legendary photographer, and 22 year GQ veteran Peggy Sirota. Inside the issue she describes each stars personality. On Fallon: “Top of the heap. Willing to take it anywhere. A little boy in a handsome man’s body. Love!” On Mars: “Super-friendly dude. He sang for us. We all died. (more…)

GQ JANUARY 2013

I love this cover. Bill Murray shot by Peggy Sirota, kicking off the New Year for the January 2013 issue of GQ. No publication captures portraits better than GQ. Sure Vanity Fair has beautiful images inside the book, but their covers often read more like romance novels. The rest tend to go for flash and sex appeal, knowing what drives newsstand sales. Lets hope this upbeat cover is a precursor of more to come in 2013. Additional pics: (more…)

NEW YORK MAGAZINE SANDY COVER

The cover everyone is talking about. Shot by Dutch photographer Iwan Baan.

GQ UK SEPTEMBER 2012

 

It’s always good to see GQ’s rakish cousin in the UK, led by talented Editor-in-Chief Dylan Jones. For the all-important September issue the editors chose Claire Danes for the cover and remarkably managed to make her look hot. Here are a few more pics from the issue, including Ewan McGregor looking ruggedly handsome in Belstaff, and a genuinely stunning shoot “We Love LA” by photographer Tony Kelly, featuring four models in barely there bikinis. (more…)

KATE UPTON FOR GQ JULY 2012

Wow, GQ has done it again with a smokin’ hot cover featuring American beauty Kate Upton. It’s cool to see GQ outdo Sports Illustrated with a clearly edgier, sexier cover, shot by Terry Richardson. For more pics: (more…)

GQ MARCH 2012

Keep an eye out this week as the bigger March issues start hitting newsstands. This is one of the best covers I’ve seen from GQ. It’s a refreshing, colorful and bold entrance into spring. Featuring the always genuine Paul Rudd, and a reinvented Jennifer Aniston, who’s foul-mouthed, Betty White-like role in last year’s “Horrible Bosses” finally snapped her out of a decade of horrible romantic comedies. Look out for their new upcoming film “Wanderlust,” releasing February 24th.

 

Putting out a superstar magazine each month takes incredible talent and GQ has been doing it for decades. Led by Jim Nelson, Michael Hainey, Fred Woodward and Jim Moore – perhaps the 4 best editorial minds in publishing. (more…)

W FEBRUARY 2012

This cover for the February issue of W Magazine is a bit perplexing as it looks like it could have been shot in 1994 during the “Interview with a Vampire” craze. Freshly blown out, feathered hair is a risky game plan and it’s a bit surprising that it was approved. “Brad Pitt Hotter Than Ever” & “Spring’s Sexiest Fashion” does little to offset the overall impression that this cover might be better suited for Glamour or Cosmo. Here’s a terrific flashback photo of Mr. Pitt from another 1994 classic, can you guess the movie? (more…)

VANITY FAIR FEBRUARY 2012

Check out this terrific Vanity Fair cover for their just-released February 2012 issue. Shot by Annie Leibovitz, the somewhat dark and brooding cover features Daniel Craig, George Clooney and Matt Damon looking roguish, buttoned-up and laid back. “Let Us Now Quiz Leading Men” promises a revealing look into the actors lives, as they take the famous Proust Questionnaire. No one does timeless, iconic portrait photography better than Leibovitz and VF, and it’s refreshing to see talented leading men be the focus.

THE NOVEMBER COVERS

 

For the November 2011 covers there are a few surprises: Details going old-school by featuring a male model, David Gandy, and GQ with an impressive rock and roll cover and all music issue. Others are no surprise at all: Maxim going slutty with a bikini clad girl who dragged a garden hose to the beach and Men’s Health featuring biceps and a black tee shirt again, although to be fair, it’s a slightly camouflage shirt if you look really close. Gandy is best known as the face of Dolce Gabbana’s (more…)

THE OCTOBER COVERS

 

October is one of those covers that magazine’s are not afraid to take chances on by featuring rising stars that you may or may not have heard of. What else could explain Arnie Hammer for Details, Florence Welch for Interview and Yvonne Strahovski looking like a slutty cowgirl for Maxim? The rest come out with guns blazing, including a killer GQ cover with Leonardo DiCaprio looking like Hollywood royalty, Esquire with (more…)

THE SEPTEMBER COVERS

 

With all of the September issues now on newsstands it’s a good time to show them side by side. September is by far the biggest issue of the year for each magazine, with March following a close second. Esquire shows Ryan Gosling cuddling himself, Details has taken a rather innovative approach featuring Ashton Kutcher in coordination with an online-only special issue, GQ with a vibrant and fresh cover featuring Mark Sanchez, Maxim (more…)

THE JULY 2011 MENS COVERS

July is that time of year when many publishers tighten the belt and do a double issue, so you’ve no doubt seen a few of these covers already. What is curious to note is how Men’s Journal puts out 12 issues a year at (more…)

THE JUNE 2011 COVERS

 

Details has finally hit newsstands so we can bring you the June 2011 covers. All went the actor route, with the exception of Men’s Health with Congressman Aaron Shock displaying his abs for his constituents. The rest: Details with Ryan Reynolds for (more…)

THE MAY COVERS

 

Here’s a quick look at the covers of the May 2011 men’s magazines that recently hit newsstands.  Most play is safe, with 6 of 8 featuring actors from newly released films.  Esquire with Abbie Cornish for “Sucker Punch,” which has been out forever, GQ with Zach Galifianakis for “Hangover 2,” Details with Mark Ruffalo, Maxim with Jordana Brewster for the franchise that will never end, “Fast 5,” Men’s Health with Chris Hemsworth for “Thor,” and (more…)
