Aaron O’Connell | Vogue Hommes International 13 S/S 2011 by Damien Neva

A Bruce Weber story needs no introduction. If the sunlit photography doesn’t immediately register, then the layout and collegiate lettering will. Weber’s virile American aesthetic has long since been subsumed into popular culture via the Abercrombie & Fitch A&F Quarterly and, it must be noted, without the slightest betrayal of apprehension over its decidedly more camp aspects. That Weber makes explicit the homoerotic undercurrents of American sport ought to be celebrated. His disarming visual language effectively smuggled into America’s heartland what otherwise would have been strictly verboten. But, all that sex isn’t strictly fabulous — far from it. Weber’s latest story in Vogue Hommes International Spring / Summer 2011 features Ford Men Direct’s Aaron O’Connell in two of the hottest shots to grace this page in long time. Titled “The Heartbreak Club,” the Deborah Watson-styled story takes a journey through this members-only society brimming with the sort of red-blooded models preferred by Weber. Aaron dispenses with all formality in the opening two shots, which stage an intimate moment between himself and a woman (Daniela DeJesus) on the beach. That the clothing receives little in the way of credit throughout the story is beside the point. This Bruce Weber story is one of beauty despite heartbreak and to that end Aaron O’Connell exceeds all expectations.

i don’t think aaron o’connell is looking for a regular girl. i mean, the type of girls he mentioned are not regular girls. there are nice regular girls out there, but they are usually not models or actresses.
