the editor’s letter

As an editor in chief, choosing a year’s best issue is a bit like picking a favourite child. 2017 has been full of such fantastic highlights, from our blockbuster Australian Issue, starring Jai Courtney, to our James Franco exclusive and last month’s epic adventure with Chris Hemsworth. But, gun to my head, I’d probably have to say our Men of the Year special edition is always the issue I get most excited about. And this one is no different. I’ll never tire of saying this – even though I do it every year – but this is our biggest Men of the Year, ever. For starters, we have a new venue at Sydney’s iconic Star Event Centre, and new partnerships from some of the world’s greatest brands – from presenting partner, Audi,…

NINO MUÑOZ HAS BEEN A BUSY MAN. FOR THIS ISSUE, HE SHOT JEFF GOLDBLUM ( P196 ), AMBER HEARD ( P188 ), FLUME ( P132 ) AND ANSEL ELGORT ( P176 ). What was the best thing about working with each of these subjects? The best thing is that I got to hang out in a mid-century home with Jeff, at the Chateau Marmont with Amber, a cabin in Laurel Canyon with Flume and Ansel at Milk Studios. What were they like to work with? I love that Jeff was up for anything – including whatever your fashion team put him in. Amber was so free and open – I just chased her around the Chateau Marmont with a camera and a glass of red wine. Flume was a real sweetheart and Ansel was a…

I loved this issue, showing Chris Hemsworth as he is, a normal every-day person, with a sense of humour but also caring about the big things like the environment. What an awesome guy! Taliha Lody, via email I’m a new subscriber and love your stories, style and insight into the world seen through gentlemen. I want to sincerely express my appreciation for publishing the story on David and his battle with cancer. An incredible insight to see a serious side of a comedian but also maintaining his comedic identity through his writing. Brave and inspiring and I hope to see more stories like this one. Apart from becoming a father in May next year, I also aspire to do some vlogging, so a new Nikon D3400 would be amazing! Thanks again. DAN…

the agenda

On the night of June 23, 2010, I was sitting in a pub with some journo mates, marking my 34 birthday. “Well, that’s it,” said one, looking down. “It’s all over.” That’s a bit harsh, I thought. It wasn’t like I was turning 40. Then he pulled up the phone he was staring at and showed me the message. “It’s Kevin,” he said. “He’s gone.” And sure enough, he was. That was the night they killed Kevin Rudd and with it the stability and sensibility that was once the hallmark of Australian politics. Hell, even Gough got two elections before they knifed him – and at least then it wasn’t by his own party. Labor’s decision to decapitate its own leader – in the dead of night, in his first term as prime minister, after a…

the gq brief lucy fry

“I always wanted to be an elf... it’s basically the reason I became an actor.” Lucy Fry doesn’t know this, but we woke up three minutes before our interview. The Aussie actress has been kind enough to meet at our hotel in West Hollywood and we’re still not going to be on time. Disaster. “I’m just in the cafe,” she texts, adding a smiley face to show she’s not furious. And she’s really not. When we burst in, she’s sipping a coffee and has apparently managed to befriend a complete stranger. The 25-year-old might be based in the US, but she’s lost none of her Aussie chill. “I just got back from Mexico – I went surfing for the weekend,” says Fry, who was born in Brisbane but has been coming to LA…
