Who are the male supermodels of today?

Please support your arguments with photos or video.

I nominate Arthur Kulkov. He's everywhere these days. Here is a video of him dancing around and taking his shirt off repeatedly.

ooh I'll be coming back to this thread to see who you guys pick since I don't follow models or fashion that much lol. Please no ugly stickly models up in this bitch! I need MEN aka ones with muscle.

On another thread someone was asking what's the distinction between models and supermodels, and no one answered him/her.

What is the distinction? Don't you have to have actual name recognition like Cindy Crawford, Tyra Banks, Linda Evangelista, Twiggy, Suzy Parker, Kate Moss, etc. to be a supermodel rather than just a model?

by Anonymousreply 911/21/2012

In that case, R9, there are no male supermodels, other than David Gandy.

You've got the wrong list, R7. That's the general list.

The Money Guys and Icons are the "super" models, though even that seems silly.

Noah Mills (Sex and the City) and John Kortajena (A Simple Man) are probably recognizable enough to one or two Dataloungers....

skinny twinks shouldn't be models. How is that in any way representative of a hot guy? and no clothes don't look better on twinks-they look best on men with muscular or athletic bodies.

David Gandy says the best paid male models earn barely over $100k a year. It's probably the only profession on earth where men simply cannot compete with women in the pay stakes. Men, by and large, don't care about fashion and aren't going to buy something because of what some emaciated twink is wearing.

by Anonymousreply 2111/22/2012

No one but David Gandy at the moment.

To be honest there's really only been one male supermodel ever: Marcus Schenkenberg of course. And even he was only known by the fashionistas. Not a household name like Linda, Naomi and the rest of the female pack. It's not fair.

Top male models make *A LOT* more than 100k a year. Someone like Gandy is a millionaire. So is O'Pry. The working stiffs who never rise above the rest - yeah, sure they are just eking out a living.

But the top guys stick with it for a reason. They are rolling in it.

I was just walking around the mall the other day and both Banana Republic and Johnston & Murphy had very large window displays of Josh Wald so he's hanging in there. And he just netted over a million bucks reselling his Brooklyn townhouse so things must be going pretty well for him.

A couple of years ago it was reported that Gabriel Aubrey, who was one of the highest paid male models at the time, was making 600K annually from all of his contracts.

by Anonymousreply 4912/02/2012

How much do male models make, like the ones you see on tv that do commercial modeling? Or the ones that do clothes ads in magazines like GQ?

by Anonymousreply 5012/02/2012

Models only make serious money when they are contracted to become the face of a luxury brand. A lot of good looking dudes have walked the runways and done catalogue and print ads for J. Crew, Ralph Lauren, you name it. It's prestige work but it's never gonna make them really rich.

By contrast, Gisele Bundchen has deals with Pantene, Esprit, Versace, and others. Kate Moss, at an age where most models retire, has million dollar deals with Top Shop, Vogue Eyewear, :Longchamp, and Rimmel. Forbes estimates that Adrian Lima made 5 million in 2011 from deals with Donna Karan, Mavi Jeans, Victorias Secret, and others.

Now thats some serious freaking money.

BTW according to gay model Chris Fawcett he lost work after he came out an said there are many photographers who refuse to work with gay models, also I read somewhere lost of designers won't hire gay models either.

[quote]I didn't mean to be openly gay in the industry; it just kind of happened. I have trouble with holding things back, or trying to hide things that I don't feel like I should have to. Regarding the industry, I think sometimes people are quick to label you, and it's sad that it's like that. In this day and age, as much ground that we've seen breaking when it comes to equal rights, I feel in some cases [discrimination exists]. I know there are plenty of photographers who won't shoot gay models, and I think it's sad because they're passing on models who are truly talented and have a great gift.

You are speaking sense, so DL'ers are likely to ignore you but thanks for posting this. It's the biggest myth that the fashion industry is not homophobic. Like Hollywood, everyone in it is GAY but they'll be DAMNED if any of their models are OUT and GAY!

r45 Ignore the racist idiots on this post. Of course Tyson was one but unfortunately he didn't do much editorial, esp in America.


You do KNOW that Forbes is like OK Magazine right? Right? Like, er, PR vehicle-MAJAH? Speculate to accumulate, the oldest trick in the book that even posters on DL who are supposed to be more savvy then most don't GET. DUH. Oh and TopShop dumped her weak old slutty ass. Kate Moss this is.

The bottom line as someone mention is campaigns but also catwalk. Both and you are SUPER.

this David Gandy guy is a one trick pony-I don't see him doing NY shows let alone Paris ones. I don't see him in editorials and I don't see him in several campaigns. I only know him from ONE campaign-granted, it's a big one but it's his only one. He reminds me of Heidi Klum,more famous for being a top model then actually being a top model!

Jon Kortajarena is def top, so is Francisco Lawchoski, Willy Cartier-Frank Oceans boy is (Givenchy, Benetton to name a few), Ben Evans-Tyra's toyboy is getting there...Andrej as well,although he mainly does women..

Jean Paul Gaultier catwalk shows are always a good place to look as he hires all the big ones...

r79 models are generally similar in looks and features at any point in time, according to what is in. The "rugged" look will be back in style again in a couple of years. The guys with bodies of fifteen year olds and 25 year old faces are in right now.

I dont think exotic looking guys (ie Brazilians) will be out of style anytime soon, as long as gay desingers and photographers exist.

[quote]A reader sent us this barely intelligible tidbit. “Last week in Paris, the two met at Ungaro show. They are Gucci-face Mat Gordon (pictured) – already very rumored, male Kate Moss – and soap-hater Jon Kortajarena.

He seems such a sweet man. Nobody ever seems to have a bad word to say about him. His family are huge though, he has like seven or eight siblings, maybe more and he used to help on their farm as a child.

I didn't know they were Mormons. That is rough if he's gay. Hope he's found someone nice.

Whilst I do think Mat's better modelling days are behind him and smoking hasn't been kind to his skin it's bit hysterical to call him 'thunder thighed' and 'old'. He certainly isn't. He barely looks like he eats and he looks way healthier than many models out there.

The Dark Underbelly Life Of The Male Modeling World

by Anonymousreply 14310/05/2014

For an article entitled dark underbelly there wasn't much meat to it.

When he asked a group of models none of them had anything bad to report. The worst they have ever experienced is maybe someone's hand lingering a a little too long when changing their clothes? The big scandal he refers to is someone that made the models change into a speedo in front of him?

Most of the models themselves seem to think it wasn't a big deal and that if they weren't turning on the photographers they were doing something wrong.

Honestly my big takeaway from that article is that is seems there is LESS using male models for sex in the industry than I thought there was. That surprises me.
