The Hero Magazine 'Volatile Opulence' cover shoot is full of dark authority. Inspired by military style, the outfits lend model Matt Ardell an intimidating look that is entirely arresting. Although it is hard to tell whether his commanding presence is for the good or the bad, it cannot be denied that he looks incredibly good as he stares smolderingly into the camera.

Shot by photographer Christian Ferretti, the Hero Magazine 'Volatile Opulence' cover shoot happens to be the third this year for the young American native. Outfitted by stylist Gro Curtis, he is clad in 3.1 Phillip Lim, Belstaff, Emporio Armani, Prada, Louis Vuitton and more. Co-starring alongside an ominous-looking German Shepherd, Ardell's youthful look is given even more edge. Stats for Darkly Authoritative Editorials Trending: Older & Buzzing
