    The men's shows are under way in Milan, and we've already seen some pretty memorable things so far (man dresses by Prada, anyone?). But we might never forget this model in the Vivienne Westwood show. Most male models have baby-soft skin and do for a pair of skinny pants what Gisele Bündchen does for a bikini. But this guy? Well, after seasons of skinny emo boys, Viv has given us something interesting to look at. And it's, well … fabulous! We don't know who he is, but we intend to find out, dammit. - New York Magazine

    Can anyone say publicity stunt....

    Seriously though I take one look at that picture and can imaghine him on a street corner slapping a women across the face and saying

    "Your my Ho don't let me catch you holding out on me again Bitch"

    Seriously though he looks like a pimp and I've lost all respect for Vivienne Westwood.

    and I like stocky guys but without the greasy hair, untrimmed beard, and complete with bling and a sweatsuit

    It was some social message about "tolerance" that made vivienne westwood do this whole gypsy theme. The board in milan wasn't too impressed though. not to sure what the whole story as I just read a quick blurb online.

    The stuff i've seen being shown in milan for spring 2009 is still full of the androgynous skinny emo boys though. Mostly depends on the designer. Dolce and Gabbana used some nice buff models for their collection.

    actually found the URL to a story about it... don't know how to make clickable links though so don't hate me!

    Guy looks good. Not necessarily the outfit, but I don't really understand high fashion so I'm no judge. Could be worse:

    I actually don't find him unattractive.

    That getup is, however, totally frightening. The pic on the right looks like a Hefty Bag Jumpsuit. Then again, I've often wondered if they put something in the water coolers in some of those agencies.

    I'm gonna be the odd guy and say he's got a definate sex appeal to him. That whole beefy "I could give a shit," Brando-esque vibe is working. I mean, come on, the guys has more sexual heat than most of those skeletons (i.e. male models today) in Milan. Hm.

    Well, I think Vivienne Westwood is an amazing designer with a hugely creative commercial streak.

    And she has got people talking about her clothes which is something she wouldn't have achieved if she'd used the usual boring A&F models.

    I want those sandals.

    Pukeroo, but it's provocative. I think the Galliano freak shows were a little more exciting, but this is a slightly safe take on the same idea, and it hasn;t been done to death
