Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott Hub
Photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot (fresh off the most well-known fashion image of the year) shot the gorgeous new Fall/Winter Armani Jeans campaign and it's got more than a little gay vibe going on. Models Jamie Dornan (Select, London) and Brazilian beauty Marlon (MGM, Paris) are joined by a third I haven't IDed yet.
Needless to say, everyone's giving pretty good face.
Two more shots AFTER THE JUMP...
In November it was announced that David Beckham was to be the next model for Emporio Armani underwear. Here's the first image from that campaign, and it's quite a package.
The campaign was shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.
Marc Jacobs extends his moment of nudity in the latest issue of Visionaire, #52: Private, shot entirely by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot, and published in a Louis Vuitton gold case. Jacobs served as guest editor for the special issue.

Giorgio Armani has tapped David Beckham's ass to launch his Emporio Armani underwear brand in the states, according to Women's Wear Daily:
"Beckham was shooting the ad campaign in Los Angeles late last week with Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. The ads will break in fashion magazines worldwide beginning with the January issues...The ad campaign isn't the first time Armani and Beckham have worked together. While the soccer legend has worn Armani personally for years, he met and became friendly with the designer after Armani did the English team's wardrobe in 2002. Armani traveled to Manchester, England, where Beckham played at the time, and worked on the wardrobe with him."
The campaign promises to be (to steal a line from Ugly Betty) Beck-mmmmmm.
fyi - the above is not from the campaign but from the recent W magazine shoot.

Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott just shot an 18-page spread for the latest issue of Pop magazine featuring a nude Courtney Love and her twins (NSFW). While Love certainly looks amazing for a 42-year-old woman, I couldn't help but be reminded, particularly in the spread's opening shot, of Stephen Meisel's orgasmic portrait of Madonna used for the mylar wrapper of Sex and Erotica back in 1992.
