Tokio Hotel Takes German Vogue

Tokio Hotel Takes German Vogue

Tokio Hotel strike a fierce pose for the October 2009 pages of German Vogue‘s 30th Anniversary Issue — on stands this Thursday (September 10).

The frontman for the mega-German band Bill Kaulitz tells, “When I arrived at the photo shoot in Berlin, [photographer] Karl Lagerfeld wanted to start immediately. I had just gotten back from the final album recordings in L.A. and was pretty tired, but Karl cheered me up right away and gave me energy. We got along really well and laughed a lot together – Karl is such a loving person. He immediately knew what kind of photos he wanted. Karl has an amazing vision and to me it felt like he already had the final picture in his head beforehand.”

Other bandmates pictured: Bill‘s twin brother Tom Kaulitz, Georg Listing and Gustav Schafer.

    Karl Lagerfeld said that “Bill Kaulitz is the other idea of a German”

  • Rachel

    Um that’s not the Vogue Deutsch spread, but okay.
    I still hope you like it when you see it. It makes no sense while at the same time being perfectly logical in the way that only high fashion can.

    Just remember when you see it – that’s a crown not a hat. And it’s a throne not a chair. It’ll make more sense. O_O

  • Lacy

    Wow, that’s really cool. I would like to see a video from the photoshoot.

  • shancil

    Thanks for the explanation XD
    I don’t think someone else would wear that hat and he still looks hot with that chicken dead on his head

    You can see it on:

  • Susanne

    I forget to say, that Karl Lagerfeld was invited, in the second Wedding from the mother of Bill and Tom Kaulitz. That´s i read in the most importent newspaper germany and saw some papparazi pictures from very far position.

  • subsub

    @Juli: That would be Bill’s twin brother, Tom.

  • mrs_fuzzybee

    So the band is three girls and one boy! Now I get it!

    Only thing those three girls are so flat-chested. Whoa it’s like a flashback to the 90′s and TLC. The one with the braid is suppose to be Lisa Left-Eye Lopez right?

  • Jackie

    Tokio Hotel is the best!

    Bill Kaulitz is so handsome!

  • Jane

  • yu

    Thanks for posting Jared, and you spoke with Bill, wow! They all look F.I.E.R.C.E!

  • Kate

    Actually, it’s not this photo where Bill is posing for Karl, but it’s still great. Bill should make his second career as a model. He was born to be a model!

  • Brit

    Bill and Karl working together? This is like one of my biggest dreams!

  • Schogetten

    Love it.

  • Shai

    But these are not photos from Vogue, and it was only Bill who posed.

  • hello

    my goodness! Bill Koulitz has a striking likeness to Megan fox!

  • SATH

    That Vogue photoshoot turned out to be one eccentric fashion, but excting that’s for sure.

  • Jerry

    Keep these coming, Jared. These guys fascinate like no others. I particularly love how clueless people who have never heard of Europe’s biggest band always make comments that are sooooo 2005,

  • k

    I am not a huge fan of there music but I am a huge fan of how they are 100% themselves and make no apologies for it. They aren’t a cohesive looking band, Bill’s glam-rock, Tom’s hip-hopish/street style, and then Georg and Gustav have really understated looks BUT they don’t let this get in the way of their music and their overall “image”. I admire Bill’s guts to wear exactly what he wants everyday knowing that many people will not understand what he is going for. I think it’s cool that they are brave enough to be themselves when sooooo many people get to comment on it and judge.

    Not to mention Bill is absolutely beautiful IMO.

  • Isabel

    Bill is an awesome model, no doubt that photos will be amasing

  • kaulitz

    What is in the water in Germany , that it produces such a beautiful creatures?

  • vivi

    I’m from germany and I have no clue why you all like them…
    1. It’s just weird (for me) to hear them (or anybody) singing in german, it just sounds not right :DD
    2. it’s even weirder when they try to sing in english :D
    3. they look gross

    But I’m glad that some of you like their music, because they kind of representate german music that made it in other countrys…

  • kaulitz


    Wher did Karl say this?

  • Iron

    I’m thankfull to God and twins’ prents that they managed to make two of them. They are two little gorgeous alliens.

  • nina

    Ewwwww! These guys? handsome?? Seriously, what did you smoke?? I thought the frontman was a girl….

  • jack

    @nina: maybe you’re ugly that’s why you said things like that. lol
    ok take it slow huh !!!! but seriously everyone’s opinion is different. be aware of that.
