#1811 Pilot Magazine’s two covers feature Emily Baker in a wig and Christopher Landon in a mask

Pilot Magazine Issue 5 has just hit newsstands and comes with two cover options: Emily Baker in a gamine blonde wig styled by Richard Kavanagh, and Christopher Landon in a bejewelled mask, styled by Dan Ahwa. Both are the models’ first solo covers – Baker appeared on a 1am cover with Jenny Albright and Landon appeared on a Vogue Hommes Japan cover alongside seven other boys. If I had to choose one, I’d lean towards the Emily Baker version for reasons of historic significance, though I do like how much Landon looks like James Bond villain Le Chiffre in his shot. Kudos to Pilot Editor-in-Chief Andy Pickering for tapping them early.

    Emma!! I’m pretty sure you worked on both shoots as assistant stylist with Dan didn’t you? Isaac, Emma should get a styling credit in your text :)

    Interesting covers. I quite like how they are a mirror image of each other. Almost the same expression on the face, both have one eye only shown, the opposite eye is covered up, intentional?

    Yes it was intentional. It’s a Freemason thing. A subtle nod to symbolism, hiding in plain sight, & other such things . . .
