For the launch of Anja Rubik's new magazine, 25, photographer and director Barnaby Roper teamed up with Kanye West to make a video dedicated to the issue's theme of eroticism. Rubik knew West from bumping into him at various fashion events over the years, and they became close friends when he started working on his clothing line (she's since opened both of his runway shows, and he rapped about her in "Way Too Cold"). "He’s like a machine, not only with music but also with fashion and videos," Rubik told us earlier this week. "He’s a workaholic, and always talking about all these crazy thoughts and images running through his head."
