Scouted while on a lunch break across the street from Trump Tower (where he worked as a doorman) by Brandon Wilson of Wilson Model Management, Michael’s big break came last month in Paris when he walked for the Givenchy F/W 2011 show. Since then he’s shot looks for Calvin Klein and is currently in NY for fashion week. All the right doors are now opening for Michael Basquette.

    Love his look , he definitely got some slavic roots in him, I can tell. Maybe Polish or Czech / Slovakian. His last name is french so apparently frech as well.

    Definitely born for the catwalk… But i think this look has become so predictable as of late.
    On a seperate note, can someone tell me how the majority of people are scouted these days??

    I love him in Givenchy but in the rest of the photos he looks “obviously pretty” so I think he has to keep the same hair in Givenchy and I love his pouty mouth but why almost all the guys have the same cheekbones like suck cheekbones, I don’t have nothing against it but I just wonder

    He is gorgeous but I dont really like his lips

    His lips are fine the way they are, stop with the pouting, leave that to the Victorias Secret girls, honey!
