8 Male Models You Should Be Following on Instagram
Shout out to this new crop of millennial male models.
There is more to modelling than a good pout and fierce walk. Today’s top runway stars are expected to have it all: celeb parents, a devoted fan-base, snap-worthy off-duty style, and a carefully curated social media presence. Here, 8 male models who are doing it right, and everything you need to know about them. We’re definitely following these dudes, and you should too.
You’re probably already familiar with this Vine star-turned-model via his Instagram feed; the 21-year-old boasts an impressive 17.5 million followers on the app. In early 2016, Calvin Klein invited the social media star to its Fall 2016 show in Milan, which resulted in a mass of his fans flooded the street outside of the venue. Last week, the social media star finally made his runway debut, opening Dolce & Gabbana’s Fall 2017 menswear show (he was one of the mystery millennials that occupied the brand’s front row last season). It’s safe to say that wherever Cameron goes, crowds of people follow.
It was only a matter of time before this Hadid landed his own major fashion job. The 17-year-old was recently announced as the face of the Hugo Boss Spring 2017 campaign, and last year he was spotted walking in the Moschino and Fenty x Puma shows. Finger crossed that he’ll soon team up with older sisters Bella and Gigi for a star-studded sibling shoot.
Do you recognize that mole? Presley Gerber, son of supermodel Cindy Crawford, and older brother of Kaia Gerber is finally getting into the family business. The 17-year-old opened Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring 2017 show, and has walked for Moschino. If there’s one thing we know for sure, it’s that Presley got it from his mama.
With an Instagram bio that reads “Stylist-Entrepreneur-Champion and Model at Request,” you know that Luka Sabbat means business. At 18-years-old, Sabbat has nabbed starring roles in campaigns for Dolce & Gabbana, Tommy Hilfiger, Adidas and American Eagle, and has made a name for himself on the catwalk.
A splitting image of his father, British actor Jude Law, Rafferty has appeared in editorials for Teen Vogue and i-D, and has walked in shows for Dolce & Gabbana and DKNY. We’ve got this 20-year-old on our radar, and you should too.
Can we just take a moment to admire those chiselled cheekbones and beautiful brows? (That’s a pretty standout jawline and plush head of hair too, TBH). This dreamy Aussie, who’s been dubbed a Leonardo DiCaprio look-a-like (agreed), has modelled for the likes of Tom Ford, Balmain, and Versace, and boasts nearly half a million Instagram followers.
Lucky Blue Smith
With his icy eyes and platinum hair, Lucky Blue Smith has won his way into the hearts of teenage girls and fashion’s elite. He’s worked with numerous brands in the past few years, and has graced the covers of Spanish and French Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, V, and GQ.
Brandon Thomas Lee
Son of Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee, Brandon made his modelling debut at Dolce & Gabbana’s Fall 2017 menswear show. Fun fact: he’s currently dating Lucky Blue Smith’s older sister, fellow model and Instagram star Pyper America Smith.
