Meet the New Guy: Tyler Riggs

It’s been quite the year for Tampa boy Tyler Riggs. After signing with Red Models in New York late last year, he made his debut in Milan, stomping down the runways for Gucci and Alexander McQueen. Then V Man booked him, and Wonderland and Another Man followed suit. In his second show season this past June, he landed at Marni, Givenchy, and Hermès. Mario Testino snapped him for D&G’s fall ad campaign, and Alasdair McLellan lensed Riggs mugging it up with queen bee Kate Moss for Topshop (you can see him plastered on Topshop’s soon-to-be store on Broadway). And when he’s not busy being really ridiculously good-looking and all that entails, Riggs still prefers to ride his bike and rock out to Every Time I Die. The middle-school kid in us just died a bit. —James Lim
