The Midweek Mmm: Iker Casillas For GQ España

Shot by steven Klein October 2011

As we previously mentioned, Iker Casillas is featured in the October issue of GQ Espana, which was first teased in this Reebok video posted on the mag’s site two days ago. Well, thanks to some pulling of  a few strings and public pleading, we finally got our hands on one of Steven Klein’s exclusive shots from those fine Spanish folks. And boy did they pick a good one to send us.

Side note: its moments like these that make us stop and think. Until now, we never really understood just how vast and equally vapid our readership was. To know that some, if not all of you are willing to put yourselves and your jobs at risk in the name of sharing some GQMF Iker goodness actually brings tears to our dry eyes.

But enough with the sappy stuff. Mr Casillas, your presence is kindly requested in our HQ’s Boom Boom Room. It’s down the first hall, make a left at the Mayhem and Fruit Beverages Suite and enter the second door on your right. And please let it be at our earliest conveniences. Thank you.

    okay, maybe I'm the only one whose clothes spontaneously fell off when I saw this picture, but frankly make-up, no make-up, hair styled, tan, baby butt white – please – he can't help being sexy!

  2. denirivera says:

    I must say I was part of the public pleeding :D
    it's been over a week I just can't get enough
    Seriously it's the sexiest Iker has ever lookes!!
    and we are talking about a man who is efortlessly HOT

  3. bri_saldana says:

    I don't care…..I'd gladly suck the pink shade right off those lips!

  4. mamaly says:

    Give me Iker in his sweat throwing out the garbage any day.…

  6. kiara says:

    iker casillas is hot in any way..

  7. Mony says:

    No No awful pic, and what's up with the pink lips!

  8. Shelley says:

    I like this photo. Yes, I prefer him au natural, and yet, and yet, and yet…..this is hot too… an evil twin.

  9. Kelly says:

    Is it me or does he look like he's wearing frosted pink lipgloss? All he needs is some blue eyeshadow. What the hell did they do to him. He looks so not natural and photoshopped. His charm is his boy next door look. Why change what works?

  10. camille says:

    awww……….i like it. never saw him as sexy before, its something new

  11. Rachelle says:

    if nando is bitchface, iker is sexface. but not with that fringe…

  12. Fernanda says:

    I prefer him in his uniform….and this is coming from a Barcelona fan. He is just too tan and made-up for my liking! He's beautiful, just not in this pic! Too Ronaldo-ish for my liking!

  13. xoWinnie says:


    on a side note, i find it atrocious that we have yet to discuss Sergio's rekindled romance with Lara Alvarez!

  14. carmen says:

    Iker should be hot on this photo, but actually he isn't. Look at his fringe, pink lips and black eye-liner. I say no, no, NO!

  15. laligaforladies says:

    I think most of us agree that Iker is sexiest when he isn't trying to be sexy, right?

  16. doug says:

    Actually, it kind of looks like he's getting ready to pose for a Tom of Finland drawing.

    • chay says:

      ha! he looks like he's ready go to a tranny show. that is NOT the iker style that i know and love. however, he does look hot in the video during the interview :-)

  17. NinaNoir says:

    First thought: Oh hell yes.

    Second: Why is everyone bitching about the styling? Look at the eyes. That's something you don't see every day on your average, nice and professional Iker. That's pure and raw, an animal trying to break free.

  18. IrishBlue says:

    Glad to see I'm not the only one who prefers my Iker to come served au natural, not with a ridiculous tan, a bad fringe and make up.

  19. Gabs says:

    Hate the hair, love him!!

  20. J85 says:

    he's so much hotter with his mismatched clothes and frizzy hair.

  21. Hot4Spurs says:

    Ok ladies. I know I'm gonna get the thumbs down for saying this and I'm cool with that. I don't find this particular pic of the lovely Iker to be all that flattering. He is a gorgeous man to be sure, but it could have been better. He looks like the creepy guy at a club who is watching to see just how drunk you will end up being by the end of the night.

  22. Lucy says:

    How photoshopped that picture is? don´t take me wrong I love him but his skin tone is not that tanned!

  23. Sam says:

    I don't like my Iker like this… most of the shots are all just a bit over-stylized and he looks downright ridiculous in some. The oddly tight and mid-thigh level shorts come to mind. I can just imagine Marcelo or Pepe papering the RM locker-room with these images and the whole team taking the piss.

    Iker is incredibly beautiful but these are just not all that hot. They are lovely photos (aside from some of the clothes and over-usage of makeup) but it just feels awkward.

    He really is best in some luminous RM kit yelling away at the defense, pointing, gesturing, posing, and making kickass saves. That's when Iker is at his finest… well it'd be better if he did away with the base layers but still.

  24. Sophie says:

    Obviously I love my scruffy, dorky, alabaster capitan as he usually is, but I would be lying to myself if I said every single photo in this shoot didn't turn me on. Not all the time, but it's fun to see a different side to him :)

  25. Mercy says:

    I’m sorry dat picture makes him look gay.Put a blonde wig on his head,u have the taller,male version of Joan Rivers!NB:my opinion do not slam me.

  26. Figgy says:

    Me thinks Iker looks so much better without the fake tan, fringe & eyeliner/mascara?
    Cant put my finger on it but it just doesnt seem to go for me..

  27. Ellie says:

    oh my! ive been praying to Iker that these pictures would come into my life in HQ. I totally agree that he looks hot when shouting at the Real defence, but then he looks hot in a suit, in swimshorts, in bright yellow Real kit. Hell, i was lucky enough to see him in his birthday suit, im sure he'd look hot in that too. (as a side note, this picture screams homoerotic to me! i think it might be the pink lipstick on his lips)

  28. Gooner1 says:

    hate to be a hater.. but i don't find him hot in this pic..he looks sleezy..much better looking natural!

  29. Kristina says:

    That is one hot capitan!

  30. Sarah, Madrid says:

    I saw it, but I didn't get the chance to comment, so I will comment in here in my lovely kickette website.
    These pictures, looked hot, I won't denied it, but I actually prefer iker in his real Madrid crest wearing his banana-suit screaming at his defenders to take good postion, or when he gives me the " I can't believe I have to put up with this defense" look!
    He looks much hotter than photo-shopped tanned iker with weird hair!..but, he still looks damn sexy again, he is iker!

  31. colon says:

    his bangs kind of tarnish the BAMF vibe el capitan's got

  32. sahsa says:

    iker, iker, iker, iker, iker, iker, iker, iker, iker, iker, iker, iker, iker, iker, iker, iker, iker, iker, iker, iker, iker, iker, iker, iker, iker, iker, iker, iker, viva san iker casillas

  33. intu says:

    iker casillas is god

  34. hbandshbreak says:

    I don't mean to be a jerk, but it's hardly an exclusive shot – it's been all over the blogs and LJ communities for 2 days now. You didn't need to pull any strings, just have a look around at a couple of other sites and you would have seen it.

    • Kelly says:

      Have clarified that Steven Klein exclusively shot Iker for GQ. But pulled strings with their PR offices we did. Cheers!

    • loly says:

      can you give me the names of these sites …?!

    • Lizb18 says:

      There's a large difference between scanning and posting or screencapping from GQ and posting and actually getting large format, high quality pictures directly from the publication. The latter is legal, whereas the other two are a bit iffy and generally result in pictures that aren't as nice anyway. I'm sure that's what they meant by exclusive, that they'd actually done the work to get the picture rights from the photographer (and or GQ).
