UK GQ Style S/S 2011 : James Franco by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin

Quote:
RANCO-PHILE: James Franco appears on the cover of the latest issue of British GQ Style, the twice-yearly, stand-alone title that lands on newsstands today. It is the first edited by Ben Reardon, who landed at Condé Nast U.K. last year after leaving the helm of i-D. Reardon calls Franco a modern icon, “the new James Dean,” and dedicates no less than 5,000 words to the actor, short-story writer, filmmaker and Gucci poster boy. Inside, Franco takes on a number of guises including rebel, wearing a dangly skull-and-bone earring; a leather-clad Adam Ant, and giant pullout centerfold model wearing black nail polish, a vintage coat and Gucci belt. Photos were shot by Ines van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.

The magazine, whose audience has an average age of 32, also features a story on Gore Vidal, penned by the novelist and editor Jay Parini, and a photo shoot with the beefy British boxer David Haye wearing — wait for this — designs by Gareth Pugh. “I wanted the title to be opera and X factor, a balance of high and low — and I didn’t want to scare anybody,” says Reardon. “You look at men’s biannuals and they can be alienating. I want this to be inspiring.”

According to Condé Nast UK, ads are up 23 percent year-on-year, and new advertisers include Giorgio Armani, Hermès, and Dunhill. Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood and Margaret Howell are among the returning advertisers.

If anyone had to be on the cover of two men's quarterlies in the same season, I'm excited that it's James Franco. I look forward to reading not one but two interviews that are likely to be very captivating reads.

I prefer this cover over his Vogue Hommes International but still I'd like to see more fire in the eyes but it's a great soft picture

Nice to see James again, the picture itself is lovely but I don't know if it's due to my small screen but he somehow doesn't look like himself and a bit old And is that an earring?

I wasn't too excited until I saw the Adam Ant inspired photo. Suddenly very excited.
