    Even the greats are in awe!
    For me it’s like seeing you, Ines and Bill together on the street. Epic stuff!
    Love the socks, by the way…

    I love the expressions on everyone’s faces. I also love Steve McCurry. Amazing photographer and fellow Penn State alumnus!

    Total hunk in the middle is wearing seriously cool socks, and they’re perfect with those shoes and that face.

      Total hunk = Alessandro Preziosi
      He’s a well known Italian actor

    “Worlds Colliding” in a good way, not in a Seinfeld/George Costanza way… :)

    Every one’s expression is completely different from the other….can you imagine the unfiltered inside thoughts that are going on inside those heads?:))

    Seriously, who is the cool dude in the middle? Looks like he’s a foot taller than everyone else in the front row…

    Nice photo .
    Don’t see the influence of Steve McCurry at all in your work .

    Sometimes frontrow photos can say more than a 1,000 words!

    Can I raise the question? Who’s the handsome and stylish man between the two of them?
    I think he’s stealing the scene…

    The guy on the left of Franca Sozzani is italian tenor Vittorio Grigolo. Actor Alessandro Preziosi is really well dressed, I like his socks.

    Amen to that!
    Can’t take my eyes of Franca Sozzani’s flats!

    Ok, I’m a liar blog

    Hahahaha I bet that Alessandro Preziosi had a major influence on you as well… (what the heck is he doing there??)

    I definately see McCurrys influence in your pictures. Maybe he was inspired by you when he shot the Pirelli 2013 calendar?

    I see the McCurry influence in your work now that you point it out. Or do I? But really its mostly not like anything I have seen at all. Which is great. Remarkable photo.

    If the world’s smartest snake wished he could be a stylish person, he would wish to be thisss guy.

    Guess somebody’s got to have a dissenting opionion. I think the cool guy in the middle is not cool as he’s overdoing the cool-thing. Doesn’t come across as off hand and natural but as posing.

    Great to know that Steve McCurry will be partnering with Armani with fundraising events for charity.

    Steve’s new portrait app is now available. Great interview and interactive map.

    Steve should be an influence to every photographer. He is a legend with an incredible body of work. Thanks for paying homage to him Scott.

    I was at this show too – my first fashion show ever, invited partially due to my blogging of a serious Armani habit:

    I have to say the shows are quite short but also a lot of fun. I did not spot you but knew you were in the area from the street shots on Via Tortona a couple of days earlier…

    No doubt, Mr. McCurry is my biggest influence in terms of Photography too… A genius.
