Mugler’s muse of the moment Rick “Rico” Genest is photographed for the latest issue of Vogue Hommes Japan in an editorial spread entitled Hard To Be Passive.

It’s no surprise that the multi-tattooed Genest was styled by Nicola Formichetti for the Vogue editorial, considering that it was Nicola who discovered him on facebook before he was cast in Mugler’s The Anatomy of Change fashion video and runway shows.

Check out the heavily-inked Mariano Vivanco photographed images of Genest below.
