finalist 'sexiest' cover 2009
ASME cover awards, finalist 2009: categorie sexiest cover:
A portrait is either sexy or it’s not, and New York’s “Fall Fashion” cover with tennis champion Rafael Nadal (one of the most sought-after figures in sports) is a smash. The image by photographer Nigel Parry honors both Nadal’s athleticism and his European good looks, with a whiff of suggestiveness. The fact of Nadal’s sitting for New York was a coup in itself; Coming off his thrilling Wimbledon victory against Roger Federer and an Olympic gold medal.
