BEST of LUXURY

Luxury is in the eye of the beholder, but when it comes to the luxury lifestyle, we like to think that we know a thing or two.

Yannick Abrath

Yannick Abrath hit it big when he first stepped onto the scene? but I guess that's just what happens when you're Raf Simons' muse. The luxury designer discovered him in 2009 and booked him exclusively for multiple seasons thereafter. The Belgian model is known for his mysteriously large eyes and stern expression, and was recently sought out for an astounding 36 F/W 2013 runway shows. There is clearly still a special spot for Abrath in Raf Simons' heart, as he was featured in the designer's latest campaign for Fred Perry, but the model has also caught the eyes of Salvatore Ferragamo, Lacoste, and Dries Van Noten.

Mathias Bergh

The Swedish model got his start in 2008 when he signed with Wilhelmina in New York, and was immediately booked for the spring Gucci, Prada and Burberry shows in Milan that same year. Just the next year, he became the face of Gucci and extended his portfolio by appearing in campaigns, editorials, and getting more experience on the runway. Today, he's the face of Tom Ford and calls Dirk Bikkembergs, Salvatore Ferragamo, John Varvatos, Emenegildo Zegna, and Cornelliani his clients, having walked in their F/W 13 shows aside from his countless editorial and advertising gigs on the side.

Baptiste Radufe

If at first glance Baptiste Radufe's intense stare doesn't have the same paralyzing affect on you as it does on us, then we don't know what planet you're from. The French model's oversized features and chiseled bone structure are what make him perfectly cut out for walking more than 40 shows this season, with a generous sprinkling of advertising campaigns and editorials to add to his resume.

Best Male Models

Francisco Lachowski

Nobody ever said Brazilians were unattractive. This goes double for model Francisco Lachowski, who has been known around the world as a head turner since winning Ford Men's Supermodel of the World competition in 2008. Since then, he has walked in shows for Dior Homme, Thierry Mugler, Gucci, and many more.

Best Male Models

Simone Nobili

How nice would it be if you were just living up your college days, partying at a club in Milan, and someone came up and asked you to be a model? That's exactly what happened for runway favorite Simone Nobili, who decided to put his psychology studies on hold in late 2010 to sign with Independent Model agency. He made his debut at Milan Fashion Week just weeks later when he walked for Alexander McQueen. A slew of editorials, campaigns, and magazine covers followed, but the Italian model definitely found his home on the runway. Most recently he walked for Givenchy, Fendi, Qasimi, Mugler, Enrico, and Calvin Klein for the F/W 13 shows.

Clement Chabernaud

The French-born model debuted in the Spring 2005 Dior Homme show in Paris, and within months he became a Jil Sander exclusive and the face of the brand for four consecutive seasons. With distinct features like large, sunken eyes and a sharp nose, Chabernaud became instantly recognizable on the runway. Since then, he's walked for top labels in Milan, Paris, and New York, including Hugo Boss, Prada. He was the face of Roberto Cavalli in 2009, and in 2011 he was the face of Prada, Jil Sander for Uniqlo, and Salvatore Ferragamo. His unique look has resulted in a runway-heavy career, rather than advertising, as proven by the 30 shows he walked in for F/W 13 for brands like Michael Kors, Tommy Hilfiger and Gucci.

Sean O'Pry

Born and raised in Georgia, you know this Southern gentleman from a number of campaigns and runways. After being scouted from his MySpace photos in 2006, he quickly booked covers with GQ Style, advertising gigs with Armani and Trussardi, and editorials in a number of publications. In 2009, his role as the face of Calvin Klein began and Forbes named him the world's most successful male model. Since extending his talent to the runway in 2011, he's walked for labels like Versace, Yves Saint Laurent and Givenchy. Most recently, he's walked in shows for Nautica, Banana Republic, and Hermes, and is the face of Bottega Veneta and Zara.

David Agbodji

Known for his chiseled body and plump lips, the Paris-born beauty was signed in New York in 2008, and now resides there. In his first runway experience, he debuted, opened, and closed for Calvin Klein's F/W show in Milan, and shortly thereafter he received attention when Models.com featured him in a story about Milan Fashion Week's increased diversity on the runways.

Best Male Models

Corey Baptiste

Corey Baptiste is the epitome of All-American, as proven by his recurring roles with brands like Nautica, Ralph Lauren, and DKNY. His dark skin, flawless physique, and intense stare are ideal for both print and runway work, but when he and David Abodji opened and closed Dolce & Gabbana's F/W 12 runway show in Milan, a statement was made about increasing diversity on European runways. Since then he's been in high demand, and his most recent work includes walking in the F/W 13 shows, as well as some advertisements for H&M, INC, and Michael Kors.

Adonis Bosso

Edgy is one word that has been used to describe Adonis Bosso. Thankfully, Bosso is so much more than that. Eschewing the typical male model stereotype, Bosso has used his presence on fashion's main stages to promote diversity in the industry. Though he is known for his septum piercing, his popularity has spread due to his blog-friendly street style. In addition to walking for fashion houses such as Hood by Air and Gucci, Bosso works with his family to help special needs children.
