Nolan Gerard Funk is the New Face of Versace
To the left, to the left, Stefani Germanotta! Large fashion house campaigns are legendary for grabbing expertly-sculpted profiles/torsos to define the brand’s current and ever-evolving aesthetic, but few faces of fashion have as much buzz as the now-confirmed heartthrob Nolan Gerard Funk, who headlines Versace’s SS ’14 campaign. The Canadian-born actor/singer/dancer had a brief stint on Broadway, headlining a John Stamos/Gina Gershon Broadway revival of Bye, Bye, Birdie before roles on Fox’s Glee and MTV’s sleeper hit Awkward.
We’d be remiss not to mention his group sex scene in Paul Schrader’s ill-received The Canyons (“I don’t have an issue with sex scenes at all. There’ll be much more graphic scenes in my career, I’m sure. If anything, both Lindsay and I felt very strongly the love scene between us needed to be a lot longer,” he famously told Broadway.com back in August). But now he can add perhaps his most substantial credit to his ever-evolving CV, a campaign shot by fashion photography duo Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott. The first images can be seen here, with more to rollout soon.
