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. And there is only one, universally recognized, iconic male supermodel: Tyson Beckford,” said Harris. “He has transcended the times and with his new Ralph Lauren campaign, various business endeavors and television projects around the world, he remains a relevant force in the fashion industry. His 10-page fashion spread in this issue not only features a great selection of this season’s best looks for men, but each frame is simply beautiful.”
