The cover star of Replica Man 10th Issue Spring 2022 took the internet by storm after rocking heels and embroidered stockings in the latest edition of the magazine — an iconic look that travelled all the way to The Late Late Show with James Corden
In case you’ve missed it, LaKeith Stanfield is one of the cover stars of Replica Man 10th Issue Spring 2022, which is out now.
Lensed by Justin French and styled by Julie Ragolia, The Academy Award-nominated actor and musician looks absolutely stunning dressed in Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello. In a conversation with Mahoro Seward, the protagonist of Get Out (2017) and Judas and the Black Messiah (2021) shares insights into the mindset that guides his overall vision:
“I approach everything as if it’s my last day on earth,” he says. “100 percent ambition and preparation meets decades of soul searching and spirit reaping.”
Unsurprisingly, as the editorial went viral last week, Stanfield — who’s returning to the small screen on March 24 with a new season of the FX comedy-drama series Atlanta (2016—present) — was met with overwhelming enthusiasm by the internet community, which did nothing to hide their jaw-dropping admiration for the actor’s flawless figure or, better, for his legs.

“Black men embracing femininity is so important. LaKeith Stanfield looks amazing. Period,” a fan tweeted in support of Stanfield’s look. “the photo shoot LaKeith Stanfield just did is 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 I like men who dare to be different,” another one said, sharing the attitude of the former. And again, “Have y’all peeped the fire LaKeith Stanfield posted on IG today? The hair and the legs. The serve. Okay, we see you 👀.”
But fans weren’t the only ones to be sent into a frenzy by the unveiling of the new Replica Man cover story. Just as impressed was American presenter James Corden, who took the opportunity to ask Stanfield about the behind-the-scenes of the shoot during the Tuesday episode of his CBS-broadcasted The Late Late Show and congratulate him for its success.
