What does Model Hot

Are they sexy! The hottest male models in the world

Bodies like Greek gods and facial features that take our breath away. Cool poses, elegant seduction in front of the camera and on the catwalk. Male models are in a class of their own, unearthly beautiful and out of reach for most of us.

So much for the cliché. And for the most part that's true. However, a lot has happened in the men's model market in recent years. Male models today can embody very different types. Some have an athletic body and distinctive facial features like Jon Kortajarena, for example, while others are extremely slim and androgynous like Mathias Lauridsen. The trend is towards "boyish". Strong guys with defined muscles are currently less in demand.

By the way: There are also wage differences in the model business, just the other way around. In contrast to their female colleagues, male models earn less well. Only a handful make it to the sought-after top model, who regularly works with well-known designers and makes it big through global campaigns.

Stars among the male models are, for example, Marcus Schenkenberg and Mark Vanderloo. Brad Kroenig was considered one of the world's highest paid male models for years. Currently in first place: Sean O’Pry.
