The men’s shows are under way in Milan, and we’ve already seen some pretty memorable things so far (man dresses by Prada, anyone?). But we might never forget this model in the Vivienne Westwood show. Most male models have baby-soft skin and do for a pair of skinny pants what Gisele Bündchen does for a bikini. But this guy? Well, after seasons of skinny emo boys, Viv has given us something interesting to look at. And it’s, well … fabulous! We don’t know who he is, but we intend to find out, dammit.
Update: We now know who he is! Meet Sergio Lo Re, male model (and bodyguard) extraordinaire.
Meanwhile, we’ve got lots of new shows up, fresh from the runways — though we can’t guarantee all of them will feature models as lovely as the gentleman pictured above. The clothes, however, should make up for his absence. Check ‘em out:
