Male Model Humpday: Getting you off and getting you over that midweek slump.
Evandro Soldati‘s striking resemblance to tragic beauty Montgomery Clift is played up for Blanco Man‘s Spring/Summer 2011 campaign that harkens back to the spirit of 1950s Hollywood courtesy of Hunter & Gatti‘s dreamy lens and Blanco’s timeless style. 24 photos after the jump.
In case you don’t know who Monty Clift (1920-1966) is, here are a few key points:
-the original “Method actor” (at least on film)
-nominated for 4 Oscars
-Elizabeth Taylor‘s best friend
-closeted homosexual, his sexuality haunted him his entire life
-serious alcoholic and drug addict
-got into a car accident in 1956 after leaving a party hosted by Liz Taylor which permanently disfigured him; he would have died had Liz not scooped out two of his teeth from his throat
-Marilyn Monroe once said that he was “the only person I know who is in worse shape than I am.”
-often regarded as the longest suicide in Hollywood history
