Macy’s Passport “Glamorama” event lit up the night sky in Downtwon Los Angeles. The event showcased fashions from top designers such as Armani Jeans, Kenneth Cole, Calvin Klein and Papi. The Special Guest Host for the evening was Pauley Perrette, who many will know from CBS’ #1 drama show NCIS as Abby Sciuto. The hightlight of the evening was when Actress, Producer, Director and Activist Sharon Stone introduced the Dame Elizabeth Taylor Tribute which hornored Taylor’s contribution to AIDS research and community awareness for the AIDS. Elizabeth Taylor began her work as a spokesperson and fundraiser in the struggle against AIDS in the early 1980s. Great stigma accompanied this fear, and Miss Taylor’s determined outspokenness was indeed controversial. All proceeds raised from the event will be donoted to the fight against HIV/AIDS. Musical performance from Cee Lo Green closed the event. photos: Jun Santiago

What we did in our earlier years may not be the same as what we ended up doing later on, but it may have given us lessons we could for sure cherish for the rest of our lives. That is the beauty of growing up and discovering ourselves; or in some cases, rediscovering ourselves. Tyler Sackett was inspired to compete in sport at a very young age. Then recently he found a new challenge to keep him pushing harder and reaching further than ever before. Amid his competition schedule, he poses for photographers and for Apollo Male Models Magazine.

the interview: AMM - As a kid you have been competing in bike races professionally and took home some trophies. How did you decide to trade speed for muscle mass and became a personal trainer/bodybuilder? Tyler - I started training in the gym for better endurance with my racing, but fell in love with fitness and bodybuilding. AMM - How is competing in bodybuilding more challenging for you than in bike racing? Or is it not at all? Tyler - Bodybuilding was the toughest sport I’ve ever taken on. Racing seems to have been in my genes and I was pretty good from the start.

“When I’m not in the gym, I’m most likely in a garage...I love to build/modify just about anything with a motor in it! My father was a pro motocross champ, so I grew up around bikes my whole life.”

AMM - Can you get the same sponsors who backed you in bike racing to sponsor you in bodybuilding? Tyler - No, two totally different sports and groups of people. I’m pretty sure Kawasaki doesn’t make posing trunks! AMM - LOL If you were to become an action superhero, who would you want to be? And why? Tyler - Captain America; Red, White and Blue, strong and fast, that’s the American dream! AMM - Who do you draw your competitive inspiration from?  Tyler - From my Father, he was also a pro motocross champ, and he pushed me to be the best.

AMM - We certainly love your smile, and you in return love to make others laugh. But when it comes to competing you take it seriously and stay focused. What do you do to prepare yourself for the bike races and your bodybuilding competitions? Tyler - I took a break from the racing to concentrate on this new passion. Preparing for a bodybuilding show is tough mentally and physically so I try to surround myself with positive friends who are also a part of the sport and we all push each other. AMM - Where do you want to see your modeling career take you? Well, Im young, I have the height to do runway, I can still fit in a suit and my mom says I’m cute... so for now, I’m taking it one step at a time. I thought I’d want to shoot only fitness, but the more I move forward with this the more styles I want to try. I’d love to get signed. Magazines like this one are a thrill. Wouldn’t be so bad to hit a billboard one day and most of all, I hope to get a chance to have a voice where I can reach people to teach them that having a great body is one thing, but you need to feed yourself from the inside out; body, mind, and soul. — AMM

Yes, it can happen! We just make sure that we accept all obstacles in our ways as lessons or interesting challenges in our great adventures and we determine never to back down. The modeling industry is not made for those who give up. So put that rainy feeling aside and head for the sunshine!

the interview: AMM - Your easy going and positive energy shines so perfectly in Florida. Can you see yourself working in Florida and also NY as a model or actor? Jarad - Thank you :-) Yes, I can definitely see myself in Florida and New York. They are both incredible places, some reasons are very similar and some are very different. I’m not a fan of the New York weather but I love the hustle and bustle. Florida has beautiful weather and beautiful people. Each location would benefit my career in modeling and acting so I would love to spend half the year in the sunshine state. AMM - As our team of stylist, make-up artist and photographer were meeting before the shoot, we were discussing your look, trying to figure out if we can guess your ethnicity. With a mix of Madeiran, Irish, French, and Native American, do you find that enhance your chance of working with a wider range of various brands from around the world? Jarad - Yes, for sure. People in the industry are always trying to guess my ethnicity...lol While I get everything from Hispanic to Russian, Italian seems to be the most popular. Most models can only be placed in one market, I have a versatile look which expands my options.

AMM - Sports and academics were your childhood concentrations. Then came construction. How did fashion modeling pop into your head? Jarad - Around 4 years ago, there was a show called “ America’s Most Smartest Model” on VH1. At the end of each episode, the producer’s would ask if you were smart, pretty, and had what it took to be on the next season of the show. They had somewhat of a social networking site in which you submitted pictures, videos, answered daily questions and pretty much begged for votes. A good friend of mine suggested I give it a shot. Things started out slow but with the pictures I received from my first photoshoot, my popularity sky-rocketed. At the unofficial end of the contest, I was third in voting which was good enough to get an audition but when they were supposed to announce the winners, they announced that the second season of the show wouldn’t be hitting the runway anytime soon. After all the effort and hard work I put in to the contest didn’t pay off, I was going to make sure that it eventually did. I started seeking other castings out because I knew I could be successful as a model. I haven’t stopped hustling since.... AMM - Signed with some of the best agencies, do you feel you have learned quite some serious pointers to hone your modeling and acting skills you otherwise wouldn’t have if you were just on your own? Jarad - Honestly, unless you have an absolutely outstanding look and youth, these agencies are very selective so a model must already have some seriously honed skills to even get signed with them. Being with a great agency def puts a model in a better position than most, I’ve walked into a casting and told them my agency(Wilhelmina, at the time) and booked the job. AMM - How do you keep yourself in shape? Anything you cannot eat or drink because of modeling? Jarad - Living and working in NYC, it’s difficult to maintain a regular workout regiment but I try to make it to the gym at least twice a week. I make up for my lack of gym time by eating as healthy as possible. Minimal fats and zero alcohol keep the 8 pack showing. ;) Proteins and vegetables make up a good part of my diet, along with plenty of water.

AMM - What do you see other models usually do wrong at casting that you learned not to do? Jarad - While its not really a mistake, lack of confidence is a job killer. Every casting is different. Sometimes a mistake can be the reason you got the gig... lol. What one casting director sees as trash could be another casting directors’s treasure. You have to feel it out and get lucky once in a while... I had a blast shooting for Apollo Magazine! Many many thanks to the Apollo Mag team. You guys are all great. Until we meet again... — AMM

interview with hair stylist

Kevin D. Nguyen hair & make-up: Kevin Nguyen www.comeandmakemeover.com photos: Dominic Wong www.imanstudios.net models: Wilfrido Villanueva and Nathan Ng

model: Wilfrido Villanueva

More than just looks, it’s an art form and a business. It’s hard work and dedication that the hair stylists and make-up artists had devoted their skills and time to make the male models be ready for the cameras.

the interview: AMM - How did you decide that you would pursue the career of hair and nail designs, and make-up artistry? Kevin - Though I had always enjoyed doing makeup, hair and nail ever since I could remember, I went along with my sister to LA to attend an intense make-up school as my sister’s company because our mom didn’t want either one of us staying in LA alone. Within the first week of our semester, I knew it was my destiny. AMM - Did you have to face ridicule from other teen-agers as you started attending professional make-up school at 15? Kevin - Although my mom would like me to be a banker or an engineer, I was a good kid and she supported my decision and being a youngest in family, it helped as well. At school, I hung out with popular groups since I did all the hair, makeup and nail of beauty and pageant queens and that’s how I got respect from them.

model: Nathan Ng

AMM - As cosmetic products are forever evolving, how do you manage to update your skills and knowledge with a sensible budget? Kevin - Beauty industry is partnership with fashion trend. It can be popular today and gone by tomorow that’s why on going education is extremely important to us cosmetologists. I deny to put myself in one category and that’s why I’ve pushed myself to go continuously  to different classes, schools and events to educate myself futher than just a cosmetologist. I’ve started to understand the business side, fashion side, and the ugliness in the beauty industry. One of the important things I’ve learned was that you pay for what you get, but you don’t have to spend a fortune for fancy products or packaging that can be easily replaced with other reasonable products....and that’s when your knowledge and experience come in. AMM - You have been working in all levels of discipline, from simple to glamour and high fashion, and even to extreme fetish. Right now what would be your greatest challenge?

model: Nathan Ng

Kevin - My greast challenge right now is to finish my double major in business degree within the year while I still have to work fulltime to pay for schools and livings. AMM - Have you ever had to deal with a disaster during a job? Kevin - I’ve dealt with many disasters at work from extremely difficult Miss pageant holders or high-end models at the photo shoots to the real life bridezillas to tricky customers at the mall’s makeup counter who were all about “pay less and expect more”. AMM - What makes you the hair and make-up artist that people should book for a major campaign? Kevin - My biggest strength appealling to major campaigns is that I’m flexible, versatile and knowledgeable in make-up, hair, nail and skincare. — AMM

interview with designer

Edmond Newton fashion: Edmond Andre’ Menswear styling: Edmond Newton photos: Leonard Poteat model: King

Fashion designer Edmond Newton is one of the featured 14 designers to be introduced on NBC’s new fashion reality competition “Fashion Star”, hosted by supermodel Elle Macpherson. The show gives 14 emerging designers the opportunity to be mentored by a dream team of celebrities: Nicole Richie, Jessica Simpson, and famed American menswear designer John Varvatos. Each week the designers will be given the task to design clothes that America wears and wants to buy. A multi-million dollar prize is at stake and the chance to launch their label in three of Americas largest retailers: Macy’s, Saks Fifth Avenue, and H&M. The show “Fashion Star” will be airing March 13th 2012 on NBC at 9:30pm.

the interview: AMM - With your mother being a hair stylist and salon owner, you had your chances to attend hair shows and fashion shows with her at an early age. Did that help you learn about styling and presentation? Edmond - Yes, attending hair shows with my mom as well as growing up in a salon most definitely helped me learn the skills of style and presentation. It tought me that it was all about selling the entire package from head to toe. The hair, clothing, shoes and effects, they all help to tell the story. AMM - Having been working as a male model before you became a fashion designer, how do you apply your knowledge of modeling to fashion designing? Edmond - I apply the knowledge that I gained as a model to my design concept by first visualizing the overall look that is needed. I then ask myself when designing, what type of individual is going to be wearing this garment. Secondly, I ask myself where will this person be going in this design. Now the objective is to relate all of this information to the model so that we are able to watch him give the garment life be it on the runway or in front of the camera. AMM - What do you hope to accomplish by competing on NBC’s reality show “Fashion Star”?  Edmond - I hope to accomplish many things from being on “Fashion Star”.

I hope to inspire individuals to follow their dreams and passion reguardless of what their circumstances are. I also look to introduce my label to the world as this will allow me to have brand awareness and allow me to continue to build my fashion house and create collections each season moving foward. AMM - Three words to describe your latest menswear collection (and what’s the collection is called). Edmond - Three words to describe my latest menswear collection: Eclectic, Industrial, Rugged, and can be found on my site www.edmondnewton.com The collection is called: EDMOND ANDRE’ MENSWEAR “Spring/Summer 2012” — AMM

I use a high protein, low carb, moderate fat diet. I eat about 6 meals a day with each meal consisting of a protien source (lean red meat, eggs, Beverly International Protein Powder, fish, turkey), a “clean� serving of carbohydrates (1/2 cup of either brown rice, oatmeal, half sweet potato, etc), a serving of flax seed oil in the morning and at night, and I substitue vegetables for a carbohydrate for my last meal. I also am a huge believer in supplements. I workout with weights 4 times per week conentrating on one large and one small body part per workout. It actually takes me about 5 workouts (8-9 days) to get in my entire body. If I train anymore than this I am overtraining. photo: Apollo GT

When I first started modeling I sent an agency the very first comp card I ever did and they told me they had too many people with my look. I worked on my portfolio and sent them a new card and now I get a majority of my work from that agency. I think not only in modeling but in life if you don’t succeed the first time it can’t hurt to try again. photo: Apollo GT

In the gym I am not talking much but I still have a couple of buddies who are working in the same field and competing. I never see anybody as competition. I rather inspire someone who got the potential for competing.

Outside of being in the gym I love hanging out at the beach. I also like to go clubbing once in a while, but I don’t drink. I’m also into muscle cars, I own a 97 Z-28 that I have put a little money into but I always want to go faster. I’m also kinda into metal detecting, I think it’s really neat to find a coin that someone dropped a century ago. I found a 1893 Mexican Paso last fall with my detector. Someday if I ever get rich I would like to make it one of my main hobbies and go diving in the Florida Keys treasure hunting. photo: Apollo GT

I workout regularly and do all parts of the body. Weight trainning only is not enough; there should be some aerobics. Running is a good way, and it makes the legs tighten. A little bit of junk food is not poison; the happy mood is much more important. Sleep and water are the best make up for your skin.

About my goals as an athlete, I think I can be a good athlete because my genetic is good. To be a bodybuilder you need to be confident with yourself. I have some back problems. I cannot do squat and other similar movements due to having hernia discal. But I don’t go do surgery. I just continue to maintain a healthy, good looking built that is very ripped and in good size to be a fitness model. photo: Apollo GT

If you believe in yourself and put all your heart and soul into it, I believe sooner or later the doors shall open. My mother always says “Follow your heart and do what makes you happy” and that’s what I do. Patience is a virtue, but you can’t sit around and wait for something to happen. You have to go get it. You have to be persistent and not give up. photo: Apollo GT stylist: Anthony Bermudez www.styledbybermudez.com

A good fitness model is someone who can help sell a million copies of a magazine. I would say that the most important thing is the attitude; sometime friendly, sometime intense but always sexy.

physique nudes

When it comes to posing nude for a photographer or an artist, many models are not sure if they can do it. Many famous models and even actors had done nude works before and consider to continue doing so. It all comes down to “Are you comfortable with your body?” or “Are you comfortable with the artist/photographer you are working with?” The male physique has been featured in arts through out history and will be loved and respected far into the future. The human body is the greatest creation. We treat it well, we shall admire it with honesty, and we shall never neglect it. When we focus on physique nudes, the body took center stage to show the model’s greatest achievement with little enhancement or no modification. Settings can be in studio with blank backdrop or in nature, but most of the time in black and white. Creativity shall come from the model knowing how to pose and the artist knowing how to capture the image with light and shadows. The rest is magic. — AMM

event left to right: Bill Grant, Mitchel, and Jason

photos by Patrick Valentine

“Bill Grant”, 48”x60”, 2011, oil and enamel on canvas Painting by the artist Mitchel Coffman of Bill Grant was on display through February 2012 at the Lumen Gallery 221 East 60th St., New York, N.Y. 10022. The event opening night on January 30th drew in over 200 guests. Bill Grant was the former Mr. America and Mr. World, and currently is a trainer at an exclusive personal training center in NYC called Iron & Silk Fitness Center where many celebrities are also training. Bill Grant and the guys

Visit www.ironsilkfitness.com to learn more about the center.

the interview: AMM - How did you decide on having Bill Grant as your subject? Mitchel - I have always loved the iconic photography of the classic bodybuilders from the 70’s and 80’s. The bodybuilders from that era really defined what a bodybuilder is. They are closest things to a living classic Greek sculpture you will ever see. For an artist, you couldn’t ask for a better model. After seeing my work and knowing my commitment to my craft, a mutual friend introduced me to Bill. He wanted to wait to introduce us until the right moment, and when the moment came, I was in awe. Bill Grant is a true legend in the bodybuilding world. He is in the Encyclopedia of Bodybuilding! We started talking and I immediately knew I wanted to pay homage to his amazing career and immortalize him in a painting. AMM - Do you feel the current art scenes in galleries around the world are lacking the masculine figures? Mitchel - It’s weird. Over time, I have noticed that everyone has a different idea of what a “masculine” figure is. This is a subject that I find myself getting caught up in all the time - in school I butted heads with people all of the time during critique sessions because I have strong views on this subject matter. As a former college athlete and competitive gym guy, of course I think there is a huge lack of well done masculine figures in the art scene. Too often, when someone attempts to create their version of masculine figures, I feel that they come up short because there is a certain level of taste, skill, and authenticity that isn’t there. Too often, these concepts are tied to flat stereotypes. I try to break through these crude preconceptions by applying my classical training and range of techniques to subjects I am passionate about and individuals I am inspired by. AMM - Will there be more pieces like the one of Bill in which you will be using other athletes? Mitchel - Absolutely. Athletes have always been a great source of inspiration for me. Although I will be working with other athletes in the future, the painting of Bill is a one-of-a-kind-painting. The piece has a distinct feel to it due to the way that I pre-treated the canvas to give it a unique texture. The texture in the painting added to his statuesque appearance, and it also helped to reinforce the pieces overall masculine identity. Bill is a hero, and just like other athletes, that is how he should always be remembered. artist Mitchel Coffman www.mitchelcoffman.com
