Top 50 Male Models
How the Top 50 Male Models list works
With the backing of blue chip clients, key photographers and legions of admirers, today's top tier male models are at the forefront of fashion. The era of the male supermodel is upon us and the movers and shakers of the moment are proving themselves every bit as essential as their female counterparts. From the daily call sheets of photographers like Steven Meisel, Mario Testino, Mert and Marcus, Bruce Weber and Steven Klein, to ads for megabrands like Prada, Burberry, Calvin Klein and Versace, male models are making their presence felt.

The pages of style bibles like Vogue Hommes, AnotherMan, GQ, Details and Fantastic Man are filled with striking faces, but campaigns are still the standard by which all are judged. Finding the perfect balance between edgy editorials and coveted contracts is what makes stars, but holding the interest of major brands over a length of time solidifies careers. In a competitive market flooded with hundreds, the guys who matter are the ones who bring something extra to the table.

Consequently here are the defining faces of the moment, MODELS.com's Top 50 Working Male Models listing.

Abiah's been a favorite of the top casting directors for the past 2 years running but 2013's Prada film, GQ Style, Lanvin campaign and a phenomenal S/S 14 show season catapulted him on onto our Hot List. His continual runway success show he's still very much wanted by the top designers for their catwalks.

Adrien's mesmerizing visage has entranced us since he first appeared on the scene several seasons ago. The soulful eyes and perfect features highlight a mischievous twinkle that comes out every so often in his pics. Givenchy, Lanvin, Prada and now YSL are some of the premium clients who count themselves fans of his presence. That vitality and a fantastic F/W 11 show season, is what's needed to stay at the top in the industry and with the smooth trajectory so far, we predict Adrien will be a long distance runner.

Long a runway favorite of big-name brands like Valentino, Lanvin, and Raf Simons—with a staggering five Louis Vuitton shows in a row under his belt as well—this sharp-featured German makes his campaign mark this Fall with a second season fronting Hugo Boss HUGO. The budding designer is also the brains behind ROC LINE, a collection of streetwear staples that have quickly become the go-to off-duty uniform of many of his fellow male models.

A standout for his trademark shock of bleached blonde hair, Benjamin's made quick work of a year, charging through the last two seasons and arriving with campaigns for Topman, Uniqlo, Phillip Lim and Opening Ceremony. After taking a look at his recent stories for Hero and 10 Men, we're sure it'll continue to be a banner year for this young Brit.

The legendary Bruce Weber was one of this golden-haired, all-American Indianan’s first big fans, and the rest of the industry has quickly come around. A favorite of Italo Zucchelli’s over at Calvin Klein–where he had five looks in his first show last summer—he now fronts his second campaign in a row for the storied house, in David Sims’ striking images set against a rocky expanse, surely a comfortable environment for the avid mountaineer.

This brooding German has been in the industry for a while, but he’s been a roll of late, starting with campaigns for Versace and Just Cavalli last Fall and continuing with Mert and Marcus’ shots for Givenchy this past Spring. He’s had a strong year on the editorial side as well, working with Mert and Marcus again for a Vogue Hommes International feature and appearing in Hercules, Essential Homme, and 7th Man too.

His square-jawed, masculine appeal has led to runway appearances for Calvin Klein, Dolce & Gabbana, J.Crew, Raf Simons, and Hermès, as well as consistent work for the burgeoning menswear magazine market in his native China, where he also appeared in campaigns for Gap and Lane Crawford earlier this year.

Rugged and masculine, this Argentine quit rugby and his nutrition studies to focus on modeling, a decision that has paid off nicely as he became a favorite of Riccardo Tisci’s at Givenchy last year, walking in two shows and scoring a spot in the Fall campaign by Mert and Marcus. An opening spot at Dolce & Gabbana’s show in January this year has led to an appearance in the house’s lush, nighttime forest campaign this Fall.
