OK. Cool. But... what the fuck does "unconventional" even mean, Vogue? Is it like, ugly dudes that people still have dirty thoughts about?

In their words, it's a response to People's choice of David Beckham as the Sexiest Man Alive.

With the cultural pendulum (finally) swinging toward a less rigid definition of sex appeal, there's never been more room for a broader range of options. Here, 10 convention-defying hotties, including he of the ecstatic following Benedict Cumberbatch and Canadian politician-dreamboat Justin Trudeau.

That might make more sense if the choices weren't all known hotties like Trudeau, Benedict Cumberbatch, Domhnall Gleeson and the guy you know best as the tired-yet-dreamy-eyed lead of Mr. Robot, Rami Malek.
