To some, M&C Saatchi’s creatives may not appear to be that easy on
the eye, but it seems that one pair have embarked on an alternative
career of modelling.
Readers of this month’s Loaded can see Chris Groom and Matt Fellows from
the agency starring in a fashion shoot based on the cult early 70s film,
It seems the duo weren’t snapped up because they are so fair of face,
but merely because Groom was willing to have his head shaved in the line
The modelling session came about after Sarah Samuel, a freelance
production assistant who was representing the Union, met the creatives
and mentioned that her boyfriend was Tom Stubbs, the fashion editor on
Loaded. Groom immediately announced that he fancied modelling.
As Loaded has a policy of using ’real’ people in shoots as well as
models, everything was swiftly organised. Increasingly envious of the
attention suddenly being lavished on his partner, Fellows then stepped
in and asked for a bit part in the shoot.
As you can see, Groom gets the full-on frontal shot, paving the way for
future assignments. Fellows is only seen in the distance behind the
wheel of a car. Mind you, looking at the main shot, we think his left
arm has star quality.
