Models Profiled! | James Preston... As James Dean!

James Preston
A&F Spring-Summer 2011
James Preston has been one very popular Abercrombie & Fitch model! The Sitch on Fitch posted on him in Models So Hot They Were Featured More Than Once | James Preston and it became a hit! Everyone fiinds this guy extremely attractive... On that note, I will assume you all will also find this post interesting...

Our Abercrombie boy will be starring in Joshua Tree, 1951: A Portrait of James Dean. Yes, and he will be playing the leading role as the iconic James Dean! The film (produced by Iconoclastic Features, and written and directed by Matthew Mishory) explores the sexuality of James Dean (1931 - 1955). Dean played an influence in the image of RUEHL No.925 and it is very fitting for Abercrombie model to play his role! And get this: it was A&F photographer Bruce Weber who told Preston to drop out of college to pursue acting! Preston himself makes a great Dean. However, Preston is, too, a model and so he kinda comes across as a bit too touched up faced than the genuine Dean. Joshua Tree, 1951 is nevertheless wholly nostalgic and - pardon me - bad-ass! ...Only worthy of a complete rebel without a cause.
