The GQ China 'Military Portraits' editorial shows a side of army personnel that not many are lucky enough to see. Maybe that's because these are actually models impersonating officers rather than actual officers. That said, they are captured quirkily posing in front of photographer Li Qi's lens. Accompanied by various toys from action figures to baby dolls, the editorial pokes a little fun at the often serious and manly profession.

Starring models Brayden Pritchard, Cooper Thompson, C├ędric Lollia, Edouard Sanville, Noma Han, Shaun Ross, Yuanyi Lee and Yanis Maleval, the GQ China 'Military Portraits' editorial is part of the magazine's current issue. In addition to the playful 'accessories,' the photoshoot showcases pieces from such labels as Burberry Prorsum, Ralph Lauren, Viktor & Rolf, Dior Homme and DSquared2.
