Jim Moore Celebrates ‘Hunks and Heroes’ Book Launch at Ralph Lauren


After four decades at GQ, Jim Moore has made a lot of friends. He’s also amassed an enormous catalogue of fashion stories and portraits of Hollywood actors, athletes and politicians. And now, his collection of GQ magazine covers and editorial shoots are the subject of a new book, “Hunks and Heroes,” which Moore celebrated at the Ralph Lauren Mansion on Madison Avenue on Thursday.
Among those who turned out for the event were Bruce Pask, Josh Peskowitz, Fern Mallis, New York Giants’ Saquon Barkley, actors Alfie Allen and Zachary Quinto, Todd Snyder, Michael Hainey, Kevin Love and Jon Hamm.
With such a big turnout for the hefty 352-page book, it’s hard to believe that it almost didn’t happen. “I didn’t really want to do a book,” Moore said at the party. “It really took Ivan Shaw [Condé Nast’s corporate photography director] to shake me. He said you really have to do this book, because I know that you have these stories and these pictures in your mind, but no one’s ever going to see this collectively unless you put it together and put it out into the world.” “Hunks and Heroes” by Jim Moore, published by Rizzoli.  Courtesy Photo “Hunks and Heroes” begins with fashion
