Who are the Luckiest Men in the World? We find out from Jeremy Kost's layout that the suave musicians in the background somehow struck a chord with the beaming, young women in front of them. Luckiest Men in the World is a potpourri of colors and a mix of an urban feel and feminine flirtatiousness.

This is part of a series commissioned by Stella McCartney in celebration of her Spring 2011 Collection for her recently launched iPAD magazine.

Jeremy Kost is a tireless chronicler of gender, sexuality, and nightlife, and has pioneered virtuosic ways to present Polaroid snapshots. Drawing his inspiration from the celebrity nightlife scene, Kost uses his instant film camera to capture the glamour—and the inherent striving—of a downtown scene full of fashion insiders, chic club kids, and flamboyant drag queens, with an eye attuned to uneven luminosity and raw beauty. A self-described "fat kid from Texas," the star transformed his image while living in Washington, DC, from 1999—2003, where he instituted a rigorous workout routine, in part motivated by his fascination with the beautiful bodies of the gay nightclub scene. On subsequent trips to New York, he slowly ingratiated himself with a well-connected, exclusive crowd who allowed him to photograph them intimately, but without pretense. The resulting images, frequently displayed in grids or collages, are reminiscent of works by Nan Goldin and Mark Morrisroe, but they most closely resemble the photographs taken by Andy Warhol in the 1970s.Read Less
