  1. I’m totally digging the girly boy moment . Love Andrej Pejic and while this , James Varley doesn’t look as girly {and thus exciting} he looks promising for sure .

  2. Well you know coming from someone who works in the male modelling industry, the grunge thing sells! I love Andrej but what he does is very limited, rather than just doing exactly what he does I think it would be much cooler if you added your own rockstar flavour to it. Just some thoughts.
    Good Luck!
