The Korean singer and global superstar PSY graced the cover of this year’s October edition of Italian Vogue. L’Uomo Vogue is a male edition of the global fashion magazine, Vogue, that presents new trends in men’s fashion, as well as the latest currents of trends in Italy, and is revered among fashion-lovers worldwide.

PSY is the first Korean artist to appear on the cover of L’Uomo Vogue, and follows Ban Ki Moon, Secretary-General of the United Nations (featured in the May/June edition of 2012), as the second Korean ever to appear on the cover of this magazine.

In the cover photo, PSY is sporting elegant, yet unique makeup, and is flashing his signature laugh.  

In this recent photo shoot, PSY collaborated with an Italian director who previously worked with global stars such as Michael Jackson and Lady Gaga, as well as a famous photographer who has done work with Robert de Niro, Scarlett Johansson, Beyoncé, and many others.
