Hurricane Sandy's first responders—the everyday heroes that helped those affected by the storm—have sexy jobs. National Guard. Nurses. Firefighters. Coast Guard. NYPD. They were on call and rose to the occasion when others need them most. But, being awesome at their job doesn't necessarily guarantee that their potential photo op would be equally as sexy. You know what does? Models, that's what.
Thankfully, Vogue sent a bunch of models—dressed in the world's latest and greatest fashion items—to areas ravaged by the storm. The resulting "Storm Troupers" photo series is the strange middle section of a Venn diagram of blue collar heroes and chic, feminine beauty. Sexy, kind of?
