How is it that Marshall Brockley has never been featured here before? He has shown up now and again, but this is the first time I've ever featured him, despite the fact that he has been at the top of the modeling game since he was 15 years old. Perhaps I found him a bit unsettling. With his nimbus of golden hair, his striking features, and his regal bearing he seemed more like an angel from a renaissance painting than an actual human being.
He has grown up since then (by my calculations he's all of 18) and as this cover story in the current issue of Essential Homme proves, he now looks less like a beautiful creature from another realm and more like an unconventionally handsome, preternatually posed young man.
