Have no fear about being called a geek; this collection of high-end nerd photo shoots gives new meaning to the term geek-chic.

Once a nasty label for outcasts, nerd has become a reclaimed word that simply describes the way someone dresses or acts. Few people are afraid of being called a nerd and, as you can see here, many people embrace the niche subculture. Many of the editorials you'll see here feature models in embarassing positions or laughing, which gives each photo shoot a sense of wonder and child-like innocence.

Fashion is too often about pin-thin models that don't have much personality, but these editorials make a big splash in the fashion pool and change up the previous standards of what can go into a high-fashion spread.
