Nowadays the media talk a lot about women models: you probably know Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Cara Delevingne, Suki Waterhouse… However few introduce you to male models – can you name me one? The odds are you can’t.
You see the same faces in perfume commercials, watch adds, on TV and you recognize them but you don’t actually know who they really are. Men models are obviously less well-known than female models.
It is time to make things change.
Let me present you four male models that fashion designers love.
The new faces:
1. Noe Elmaleh
This guy is Gad Elmaleh’s son (Gad is a famous French comedian and actor). He is starting modeling and he is just 16. He walked in Zadig and Voltaire’s fashion show for NYF and in Dolce & Gabanna’s fashion show in Milan.
2. Anwar Hadid
He is Gigi’s and Bella’s sibling. He turned 18 this year and started a modeling career at 17. Anwar is also an actor. He was on the runway for the Fenty X Puma collection, appears in Zadig and Voltaire commercials with his sister Bella and made the cover of Vogue and Teen Vogue.
3. Sean O’Pry
He is the most well paid male model. However his wage (about 1.5 million dollars) is 28 times less than the best paid female model, Gisele Bunchen. Who knew men could be less paid than women?
You probably saw him in Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space” video. Sean modelled for Saint Laurent, Balmain, Zara, Versace, Vogue and many more. He is the ambassador of Pacco Rabane’s one million perfume.
4. Franco Noriega:
This Peruvian model is also a chef and used to be an athlete. In fact he is the owner of the Peruvian rotisserie chain named baby brasa. On his YouTube channel (called Franco cooks) you can see him make a Peruvian sandwich and an anti-oxydant drink. What’s more, he is familiar with the couture fashion brands Calvin Klein, Dolce & Gabanna and Louis Vuitton.
Who is your favorite male model? Did you know any of them?
Let me know.
