Last week, we previewed American Idol 6's Jenry Bejarano in the latest issue of Flaunt, the edgy Los Angeles-based fashion bible whose almost-monthly editorials featuring black and Latino models and actors have become required reading. Here is one more preview of the new issue: New York City-based model Ibrahim Baaith in a luxe editorial for the iconic haute couture designer Valentino.
The actual star of the five-page editorial is actress Anita Brem, seen in The Tudors as Jane Seymour. It's a stunning layout, juxtaposing bright colors against an pitch-black background.
Fashion photographer and Flaunt veteran Nicolas Wagner lenses the editorial. Wagner also captured Shemar Moore, Nick Cannon and that fierce editorial with January Jones flanked by "it boys" Zack Clark and Manuel Ramos. Long Nguyen who styled the Jenry Bejarano, Haaz Sleiman and the go-go god editorials, is the writer and returns as style director.
Ibrahim Baaith is represented by RedNYC. The model was recently seen in Paper in the Barack Obama-inspired fashion editorial and in Sean John's historic all-black fashion show that ended Fashion Week. More photos on the newsstand.
Thanks to Flaunt's NYC office.
Photographer: Nicolas Wagner.
Style Director: Long Nguyen.
