Model of the Day: Ian Nelson Foster

One of Empire Models hottest new finds is 18 year old Ian Nelson Foster. Ian is a wrestler who just begun modeling this past winter but has quickly made a name for himself with some great work with some of industries leading photographers. Ian has an amazing look and each of the photographers he has worked with have brought out different looks. Ian has been building quite an amazing portfolio and expect to see much more of Ian now that he is devoting full time to modeling. You can see more of Ian at Empire.

Just Because: Michael Feinstein

I have always known who singer/writer/pianist Michael Feinstein is, but at the same time never really knew anything specific about him. Generally my music tastes run towards alternative and classic rock. But...I am still on an 'after Tony's' glow having discovered the music from 'Next to Normal' along with other new music to love.

During the tribute to Jerry Herman, there was a few seconds of Feinstein singing a few lines from 'I Won't Send Roses' from the Broadway show 'Mack and Mable'. There was something about the song, the lyric the tone of Michael's voice that had me Youtubing, and of course it was there. Hope some of you might like it as much as I did.

Gilles Marini in Bello Mag

One of my favorite online magazines, Bello is out with issue #9 and it features many great stories and layouts. I must say I always halt when it comes to pics of Gilles Marini as he truly is one of the hottest men on the planet. Gilles also embraces his role of sex symbol which is refreshing. Be sure to give Bello a look HERE:

Gilles is featured in Bello promoting his 2010 calendar shot by the great Fred Goulden. You can check out and buy the calendar HERE: or check out Fred's site HERE:
