The VIP club: those working "icons" of the moment - defined as male models with public recognition, established longevity and major campaigns and/or editorials within the last year.
The women's modeling market has clearly evolved that rare circle of girls who consistently pull in that all important repeat client, especially on the campaign front. The men's market for years has had the same thing and it's only fair that that those anchors of the male modeling industry should be given their own stand alone ranking.
Many male models come and go but these 10 forces have proven themselves to be client powerhouses via their fragrance campaigns, their blue chip advertising work and their continued editorial presence (the key variables on which this ranking is based). Some of these men, over the life of their career, have earned over a million dollars. Others have left behind unforgettable and moving imagery that proves that presence, passion and charisma counts in male modeling. Most importantly their existence and survival is a testament to where brilliant management can take a career. All hail the iconic male model.
