Ralph Waldo Emerson expounded upon courage in his essay, Society and Solitude as, "Practical power. Men admire the man who can organize their wishes and thoughts in stone and wood and steel and brass."
RJ Mitte featured in current issue of Contentmode is a man about courage, practicality and family; a virtuous man in any book. He moved to LA out of love for his little sister, taking acting classes to acquaint himself with a new surroundings and landed the influential roll on AMC's Breaking Bad.
He is accustomed to challenges, such as taking on a big city or an ambitious part in an Emmy nominated TV series, while advocating for Teens Against Bullying, an important social cause for our generation. Standing up for what is right and speaking out against what is wrong takes an enormous amount of courage, as does embracing new role as a model, style muse or being an activist, but RJ seems to do it all with ease.
RJ was styled by Editor-in-Chief Deborah Ferguson for Contentmode, an innovative digital fashion magazine for a new generation of RTW designers. Contentmode features both established luxury RTW brands and up and coming international RTW designers, as well as celebrities in fashion editorials.
