Because It's Monday

Johnny at General Idea's F/W 2013 presentation, 
from the NY Mag slideshow. Please be sure to click twice 
for gloriously huge full-size view. Love the hair.



OK, this Fashion Week continues to amaze with its utter dearth of Johnny photos. I am at a loss to understand this oversight, but remain hopeful that perhaps Tuesday will bring something beyond tiny thumbnails that, when clicked, begin gasping for breath under the agonizing weight of their own watermarks whilst forlornly wishing they had been invited to mingle with the cool kids over at the wire services (Getty: What are you doing. Only two images labeled "Front row," which are only sort of, and anyway are shot from the wrong angle to allow us to see Johnny).

So per his tweet, we'll  be watching for photos of him from Asher Levine's presentation Tuesday at 7 pm EST, and then again at 9:30 pm at The Blonds, where the show will be available via livestream (yes!!). Sadly, Chris Benz is taking this Fashion Week off, so no photo ops there.

UPDATE: Oooooooo! He'll be at Alice+Olivia today, and part of Tumbler and Tipsy's presentation tomorrow (I think)! Fingers crossed for pics!

Until then, here's all that we have of him and his hair at General Idea....

And here's a snippet of video, shot by someone 
seated almost directly across from Johnny 
and Michele Mansoor of Fireworks. Watch closely, 
and you'll see them immediately at the beginning 
of the video, and then every time the camera follows 
the models down the runway.

More NYFW video!! Here's Johnny being interviewed
 (in Russian) by NTV-America at last week's presentation 
hosted by DEPESHA magazine at the Russian Consulate. 
Johnny’s portion begins at about 0:56. According to 
dear Tatiana Edrenkina, he says: 
"Russian style is of course different. They always wear 
fur coats, diamonds. Everything's excessive." 
NTV-America also refers to him as "Olympic medalist." :D

So Johnny posted this photo on Instagram recently for Throwback Thursday...

"Blackbook Photo Shoot Outtake 2006. 
#throwbackthursday"


...which reminded me that I had gotten a request—quite some time ago, actually (gaaaaaaah sorry!)—from a reader looking for the BlackBook photos, because only one remains on BlackBook's site (when you click the link for the full gallery, you get a heartrending "page not found" error).

So since we're experiencing this heavy drought of Johnny photos at the moment and also since the next Throwback Thursday seems like miles and miles from here and also because hair and also who needs a reason besides the fact that these are the BlackBook photos: Here you go. The BlackBook photos.

Please, please click any photo twice for fabulously huge view. Absolutely one of the best shoots ever. Very special thanks to the dear Photo Ninja who dug these up for me. ♥


























Behind-the-scenes pics from the shoot. 
These couldn't be located in huge size, 
but they're still amazing.

Bonus pics!! Family and friends enjoyed 
an amazing celebration this weekend at @OneginNYC 
in honor of the fabulous Jackie Voronov Curko's birthday! 
Photo tweeted by Victor on Sunday: 
"Birthday shenanigans from last night."

Excusez-moi, but what exactly are these breathtaking BlackBook photos??! Havent't seen nearly all of them before...damn this "new-fan-thing"!!! All I can say is that I have now a new, gorgeous desktop background picture!:D Did I understand correctly, is Johnny modelling somewhere and could it be seen live from somewhere?:)

Binky and the Misfit Mimes said...

I THINK Johnny is modeling for the Tumbler & Tipsy show tomorrow at 11 am EST, but IDK if there's a livestream for that. The Blonds has a livestream, but I think he's front-row there, not modeling--hoping for glimpses of him on-camera though!

Ok, thanks for answering!:)
