Ryan McGinley

Sex, drugs, rock & roll—they aren’t exactly hallmarks of mature sophistication, or at least not yet. But there’s no act so grungy it can’t be cleaned up by a few well-placed changes. Case in point, Rock Ambassador/Designer John Varvatos’ Spring ’08 *Converse by John Varvatos* ad campaign.

It seems that Danny Clinch, the man who managed to make even Alice Cooper look dapper, has handed over the lens to hipstographer Ryan McGinley in the *Get Chucked* campaign. We’d gladly spend the day browsing McGinley’s portfolio of gloriously happy nudes engaging in normal daily activities (yes, even communal bathing), so we’re excited about the direction he’ll take the ads, especially since they’ll actually revolve around clothing.

Everyone loves a challenge.
