The flying tomato has added another accolade to his CV: Shaun White is the latest superstar to grace the cover of super stylish US men’s magazine Nylon Guys – little brother title to fave ladies title Nylon. Writer Luke Crissell paints a unique portrait of the Olympic Gold winner, as he hangs out with the skate and snow wonderkid at home in San Diego – complete with photoshoot by Kevin Zacher and simultaneous pool party.

Alongside former cover stars Pete Wentz, Hayden Christiansen, Pharrell Williams and Bathing Ape’s Nigo it’s an interesting cover choice for the mag and equally cements Shaun’s status as now a true mainstream celeb. Although, from reading this interview, he’s still unfazed and having a ball.

US Vogue April 2008- LeBron James and Gisele Bundchen

For possibly the first time in its history, US Vogue is attracting attention for something other than its general lack of interest. The reason; this year’s ‘Shape Issue’ features LeBron James, the 6 ft 8 basketball player, posing with Gisele Bundchen, the 5 ft 11 supermodel.

So, still questioning why this could be seen as interesting by those within the fashion world? Well this is only the third time that a male has been featured on a US Vogue cover (after Richard Gere and George Clooney) and the first time that said male has been of colour- satisfied yet? Within the magazine, we have a feature which takes models like Gisele Bundchen and Doutzen Kroes and pairs them with athletes like Shaun White and Apolo Ohno. It is rare that so many stars come together (especially for fashion) and all those included are at the top of their game (pardon the use of this particular expression.) This is an issue for everyone and although some cynics are predicting a major letdown, let’s look up. In the case of 6 ft 8 LeBron, you’ll be doing it anyway.

See after the jump for great screencaps from a video on the issue. (Source: The Fashion Spot)
