Justin Timberlake featured in the December 2011 issue of Esquire UK magazine photographed by Benni Valsson and styled by Catherine Hayward.
The Timberlake does less than nothing for us, and truth be told, we always found him terribly irritating. This feeling has only gotten more intense as he embarked on Phase 3 of his career: movie star (1: Mouseketeer, 2:Pop singer, deflowerer of pre-crazy Britney).
And this is mostly a terrible editorial coming from Esquire. He wears nothing of interest; nothing that’s been styled to any great extent; and he’s grinning and popping way too much. But for some odd reason, we kind of like this editorial. It’s full of personality. If we were flipping through the magazine, we’d stop on these pictures, even though, as we may have mentioned, we don’t exactly swoon over the guy. He’s got real camera presence; we’ll give him that. It’s kind of a shame they couldn’t style him to be a bit more interesting.
