Former Ralph Lauren Polo supermodel Tyson Beckford covers the Aug/SEPT 2013 issue of UPTOWN magazine. UPTOWN Editor-in-Chief Isoul Harris explains why he selected Beckford for the Fashion issue.

"Months ago, when we were discussing our September Fashion Issue and who we wanted to cover it, we had the idea of paying homage to the male supermodel.

    Bruck Tekle is a fine, handsome male model from Eritrea, which is a rarity since Eritrean men are normally conservative. Marona has very good taste!

    Hello Ms. Rose

    My name is Donte Newman, professional Model, aspiring actor based out of the Washington DC/New York area. I have been following your site for awhile and I can't say we share the same views on many topics but I do find your site entertaining none the less, we've even had a few debates on twitter and the comments from your members never fail to make me laugh.

    I have been modeling professionally for the past five years and have walked many runway including New York's fashionweek for established brands from Nudie Jeans to Phat Farm as well as many up and coming designers. As much as I do love modeling and the opportunities it has afforded me, I'm now in the process of trying to make that sometimes impossible transition into acting and I would greatly appreciate the privilege of a spot on your morning wood post. I have attached a few shots of some of my modeling work as well as a few casual shots(hope its not to much). Thank you in advance.
