Actor-of-the-moment Haaz Sleiman is the newest "it boy" to glam it up for Flaunt, the edgy Los Angeles-based fashion bible whose almost-monthly editorials featuring black and Latino models and actors have become required reading. Sleiman stars in Thomas McCathy's new drama The Visitor, which has drawn rave reviews from the critics at Sundance and the Toronto Film Festival. More on the film and YouTube trailer is here.
Haaz Sleiman should look familiar. We first spotted him starring as the flirtatious muscle boy "Tyson" in Maurice Jamal's The Ski Trip. Since then, notes Mad Professah, the actor has been featured as ""another improbably handsome muslim terrorist" in 24 and Navy NCIS. Not bad work if you can get it.
Photographer Kevin Amato lensed the seven page editorial. Long Nguyen is the style director. It's a beautiful shoot, very monochromatic, lots of greys and blacks. Tom Ford, Thom Browne, Prada
and Lanvin are represented here. Lanvin was one of the iconic houses of
the 1960s and 1970s, its great to seem them making such a comeback. More photos in the magazine.
