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.

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.

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.

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.

Dmitriy Tanner

This top male model was born in Russia but bred in the States? but aside from his washboard abs, chiseled features and piercing blue eyes, what really makes this stunner stand out from the rest is that he is an active-duty Marine based at Camp Pendleton in Southern California. Scouted while off-duty at a shopping mall in December 2010, he was quickly signed and immediately booked for Givenchy's Fall 2011 show in Paris. But when Calvin Klein decided that Tanner's rough-around-the edges look was exactly what it wanted for its ad campaign in Fall 2011, (and each of its runway shows since) Dmitriy's modeling career was catapulted. Though he still considers it a side gig next to his duty as a Marine, the two-time Calvin Klein exclusive has also recently worked with Versace, Diesel, and Dsquared2.

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

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.

Zhao Lei

Since booking an advertising campaign for Prada in 2010, this Chinese model has been on-the-go appearing in editorials, shows, and countless magazine covers for the top brands. His chiseled features and flawless skin put him in high demand from season to season, as proven by his recent appearances in magazines like Elle Vietnam and Hercules Magazine, a campaign for Hugo Boss Menswear, and runway gigs for Giorgio Armani, Missoni, and Select Men for the F/W 13 shows, to name a few.

Best Male Models

Lucky Blue Smith

A jaw that could slice a melon? Check. A strong, hypnotizing gaze? Check. A signature feature? Check. Lucky Blue Smith appears to have it all. Recently named "Model of the Moment" by Teen Vogue, Smith has gained a strong social media following that rivals more seasoned male models. Known for his striking platinum blonde hair and piercing blue eyes, Smith is winning the hearts of teenage girls everywhere. They might not be the only ones.

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.

Benjamin Eidem

This Swede was discovered at the age of 18 while standing outside a restaurant, and while he initially refused the idea, his family eventually convinced him to give modeling a go. With looks that resemble James Dean, the blonde-haired blue-eyed hunk kicked off his career with show for Prada, Louis Vuitton, and Calvin Klein, and his most recent gigs included walking for Perry Ellis, Michael Kors, and Rag & Bone.
