Anthony Chen on the cover of BAZAAR MAN

Cover stars for menswear glossies have always been slightly predictable. The same people, the same look and the same styling.

Cannes Film Festival award winning Singaporean director Anthony Chen is on the cover for Harper’s BAZAAR MAN April 2014 issue. For once it’s not a model, actor or personality. Anthony had a really good run at Cannes and subsequently won awards everywhere afterwards with high profile appearances at several other major film festivals. To top that off he has a pretty good sense of style that is GQ-worthy.

To put such a respectable local figure on the cover shows that not only the entertainers are good enough to be on fashion magazine covers, but also talented people in their own respective fields.

Did you see how the heavenly Godfrey Gao only gets a tagline beside him.
