Presto, change-o! We've materialized dozens of dreams to go. Along with offering an up-close look at our main man, for this special issue we've focused on fantasy fuelers in a dozen fields. We also asked the stars to reveal their first famous crushes (Jane Seymour fell for Rudolf Nureyev), even as we chose our own favorites among real-life working men. Our charmed circle includes teen idols like Prince William (see gatefold) and such seasoned spell casters as Sean Connery. Prepare to be enchanted.
