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.”

In addition to releasing new music, Ciara is relishing her
dopamine relationship with producer and rapper, Future.
The 27-year-old Austin, Texas native recently flexed her muscles by blocking the release of Rihanna and Future’s duet single “Love Song”.
Ciara and Rihanna’s feud was reignited in May when Ciara asked Rihanna to explain why they have beef since Rihanna is “so vocal.”
In an interview with The Source, Future said, “We never shot a video, we never performed it. I don’t know whether it was because of that situation or if just the time hasn’t come up.”
