The Fashionisto’s "Performance" editorial is captured by photographer Bell Soto’s lens. Channeling stage performers, models pose in a set of studio portraits that reveal raw emotions and dramatic cosmetic applications.

This dance-inspired exclusive features models Andy Walters and Dorian Reeves who sport a wardrobe of luxe outerwear looks. Styling for this elegant image series is courtesy of Timothy Reukauf who hand-picks the guys’ sophisticated staples from the likes of Prada, Tom Ford and Calvin Klein Collection among other familiar labels.

The editorial’s makeup looks are the work of beauty artist Renee Garnes who transforms Andy and Dorian into performers who are guaranteed to garner attention whether on stage or on the street. Stats for Lounging Dancer Editorials Trending: Older & Chilly
