The new issue of Man About Town, the International Men’s Review edited for the first time by Show Media, features an exclusive interview with Britain’s most famous man about town, Mr David Robert Joseph Beckham, OBE. Show Media visited the man in Paris, shortly after he had relocated there for his new role as player for Paris St Germain, and discovered, among other things, that he loves the Stone Roses and that he was afraid of Sir Alex Ferguson. The images of David by celebrated photographer Karim Sadli join great stories photographed by Lachlan Bailey, Andreas Larsson and Thomas Lagrange, where we imagine a cross-cultural student love affair, the chic modern nuclear family and man’s relationship with his new best friend – his cat.
Other notable contributions come from model David Gandy, writing about the new Jaguar F-Type, Donatella Versace, who tracks down Cameron Alborzian, former supermodel and Versace regular and now sucessful yogi, Gucci’s Creative Director Frida Gianini on her love of David Bowie, and celebrated war reporter Anthony Loyd on celebrated war photographer Don McCullin. In addition to this, we journey to Persia to bring you a window into the history, myths and progeny of the region – from Firooz Zahedi’s shots of Elizabeth Taylor in Iran to a look at the ancient city of Persepolis. Beautiful to look at, fascinating to read, the new edition of Man About Town is distinctive and original, and quite unlike anything else on the newsstand.
