The ‘Blue Beards’ Manuscript magazine editorial is what would happen if a pirate had a baby with one of the talking flowers from Alice in Wonderland. A gray-haired model stars in the garden-inspired shoot, sporting an unusual form of facial hair that is surely less itchy and much more pleasantly scented than its traditional predecessor.

Instead of rugged stubble, the model wears a blooming beard of flowers handmade by Lisa Cooper. Showcasing the blue hues gracing this season’s couture runways, this stunning shoot is insanely imaginative and very whimsical.

Aside from the faux crumb duster, the model rocks a mix of manly denims, knits and pinstriped ensembles. The shoot's bearded star is prim and polished, which puts even more emphasis on his odd beard. Made for the stylish and passionate botanist, this portrait series is conceptually clever, highlighting looks fit for a true gentleman.
