You know those faces you reblog on tumblr, share on facebook and see on fashion magazines and fashion shows? I'm gonna tell you their names and reveal some curiosities about these models. Wanna know what's playing on their iPod? How do they keep themselves in good shape? What inspires them? I had the inside scoop thanks to their generosity... between photoshoots and fashion weeks they answered some questions for 2XN1.
Every week I'm gonna publish an interview with a different male model. Hope you like this exclusive feature here on the blog. Please give me your feedback!
Date of birth: 23/5/1991
Nationality: German, Irish, Black, Native-American
How did you start modeling? Well I guess it all started the first time I went through the second grade. I caught my reflection in a spoon while I was eating my cereal, and I remember thinking "wow, you're ridiculously good looking, maybe you could do that for a career."
Favorite brand/designer? Oxë, sick clothes. Check them out here: http://oxeclothing.shirtstore.net.au/ They’re just getting started, but it’s just my style, simplistic black and white.
Who is your biggest inspiration? Donald Glover.
(Walking for Ermenegildo Zegna and Versace)
How often do you go to the gym? Never when I’m traveling, I only go consistently when I’m home.
How’s your nutrition? Hahahaha good one. Sometimes I eat healthy for a few days or weeks but it all comes down to how much time you’re willing to spend preparing your meals. And I can’t cook and I’m way too lazy/impatient to keep it going.
What do you like the most about you? My awkwardness.
If you could meet one person, dead or alive, who would that be? Donald Glover.
Favorite movie? Zoolander. Arrested Development when it comes out. Also Community #sixseasonsandamovie
What’s playing on your iPod? Kanye West and Good music, Kid Cudi, Childish Gambino. Lenny Kravitz. Earl Sweatshirt.
Favorite dish? Sputnik, I guess…
What annoys you the most? Getting pinched. Or getting compared to other people.
If a genie gave you three wishes what would they be? Of course I’d wish for more wishes... But for the sake of this question I’d wish for; 1. Legalization of gay marriage and a complete separation of Church from State 2. To end world hunger and disease 3. Spiderman’s exact super powers and intellect.
(Editorial for Hercules magazine)
The most beautiful place you’ve been? Chiuppano, Italy.
Guilty pleasure? Chocolate chip cookies or powdered donuts
You can’t live without…? My girlfriend or chocolate chip cookies. It’s a toss up.
Favorite drink? Water. Coffee. Beer, Ipa’s specifically.
Favorite book? The Alchemist.
Favorite painting? The Scream or The Rebirth of Gaea done by my cousin Jesse Newman. It’s the most detailed piece of art I’ve ever seen. It’s not a painting but still.
The worst misconception about models? It’s not a misconception that most models are dumb. It’s a misconception that most models aren’t stupid.
