  6. Dreamy alright! They remind me of characters out of "The Great Gatsby," with their flapper looks and sharp tailoring. Very nice.

  30. This isn't the first time I've said this but I think Karl is a shiteous photographer and the only reason people run his shite is because he's 'Karl'. I read that Brad Pitt shot for W, this is another example of when celebrities step outside box I like to keep them in.
