Now This Is a Photo Op

In a divided political climate, the nation can agree on one thing: The camera loves Rep. Aaron Schock! The Republican wunderkind from Illinois got the star treatment from Details magazine last spring; now GQ is featuring the 28-year-old freshman in a four-page fashion spread -- its first such spread featuring a politician. (Unless you count fly coverboys JFK and LBJ fronting style issues of the 1960s, below.)

Schock models four suits, including a three-piece $1,695 Polo Ralph Lauren, but no, he didn't get to keep the clothes. Why'd he agree to pose? "It's in keeping with my strategy to reach out to new demographics and new media forms," he told us. GQ readers "are probably people who aren't regular donors to the RNC." Another reason: "It was fun! ... They had me stand in the middle of Pennsylvania Avenue while traffic was whizzing by me."
