A longtime favorite of many industry insiders, Andres and his unique blend of sensuality and masculinity finally took off with such starmakers as Mert and Marcus in the hugely exposed J-LO Louis Vuitton campaign and that Chanel Allure fragrance campaign. The subject of Vogue Paris' first male profile with Inez and Vinoodh, Andres just might be the first male supermodel of the Zeros.

This multi talented Belgium mainstay made waves by walking alongside his fellow top men's faces at Dior Homme's F/W 18 show. Don't call it a comeback though because he's been a constant favorite of Armani, Vivienne Westwood and multiple other top designers through the decades. The piercing blue eyes & contagious smile clearly has the industry still enchanted. Twenty plus years and still booking the big campaigns is impressive indeed.

What do you say after 17 years in the industry and you're still being booked? There are many male models who have the right smile and a lean body but what makes Chad stand out is his professionalism and all around "niceness". Don't get us wrong, the twinkle in his eye, his effervescent smile and those swoonworthy abs definitely help but the truth of the matter is, that clients want a model that encompass the whole package.

Gabriel Aubrey is one of those rare model icons that looms as a bonafide celebrity even as his legacy of fashion bookings marks him as one of the last of that era of male models worthy of the prefix "super". As a long running fixture of many top brands, Mr. Aubrey still clocks in for duty to this very day.
