Lucky Blue Smith is the current coverboy for Nylon Guys Español, and although I think the photos by Esteban Calderon may be a tad over-edited, they are quite striking. Lucky's still-untitled book from Penquin/Random House is due in stores on November 1, just in time for all your holiday gift giving. Vanity Teen has published the whole set, here.

I want to take a minute to recommend a movie that I loved. I'm not going to go on and on about it except to say that if you have any memories of being a young person in the 1980s and/or love the music of that era, this is it: Sing Street, directed by John Carney whose previous excellent movie was Once. It is well played mostly by young people you've never heard of, with a special shout-out to Ferdia Walsh-Peelo, who portrays the main character and sings the original songs beautifully. It is available for streaming now, and on Blu-ray next week.

To be honest, the first pictures of Portuguese model Lautaro Hochman I saw didn't do much for me. Yes, I know, everyone is beautiful in their own way (I'm told) and I am susceptible to unconventional beauty, but I just didn't see it. A few days ago Vanity Teen published some new pictures of Lautaro by Bruno Cortes on its website, and I saw the light. Those eyes, that mouth, that hair! The full Vanity Teen set can be seen here.

If there is one male model who has dominated the runways over the past year, it is surely 17-year-old Melbourne lad Trè Samuels, who walked in an incredible thirty-five shows in the fall/winter season alone. How did a boy (with great hair!) from Australia end up getting scouted in New York City? He was there to take meetings with record companies. That's because before he was getting paid for being gorgeous, he was, and still is, a singer, signed to a major label at the age of ten. And let me tell you, the kid's got pipes. Look below for a recent music video, or to check out 13-year-old Trè singing live. His new EP is now available at iTunes.
