Diogo Guerreiro, 187 cm / 6’1.5″, Portuguese, born June 28th.
A direct booking for the Ermenegildo Zegna show (cast by ACW Worldwide (New York)) in Milan kickstarted Diogo’s career after being scouted just four months ago. Curly haired with cut glass cheekbones, this Portuguese pretty boy’s beauty seems straight out of a Caravaggio masterpiece.
What have you learned since you started modelling?
“I became a model very recently but I can say that I’ve learned a lot in these last 4 months, it was an incredible change in my life and helped me to improve many aspects. I was always a little insecure and being a model taught me to be more secure about myself, to accept the criticism better and improve many aspects of myself like following my own head and not let myself be taken by the heads of others, to pay more attention and to concentrate more.
Regarding to my health and body I have learned how much I have to be careful with it, like how to eat correctly. At the end of the day they are my instrument of work.”
What was your most embarrassing moment?
“Well it’s been a while but I remember it as if it was today, I was in 7th grade and my class was having a lecture. I was sitting in the front row and it was dark and at that time I had very big and light hair because of the surf. A question came up and I raised my arm to answer and the lady who was giving the lecture gave me the turn to talk and said, “Yes, my beautiful girl.” I was mistaken for a girl in front of my whole class. Today I laughed but at the time I only wanted a place to hide.”
What’s the most interesting thing about your family? Do you have siblings?
“It may not be the type of family that is always together but when it is needed they are always present to help and support whatever it takes. I have never had any reason to complain because being a child of separated parents my mother has always been very liberal which helped me to realize that the world is not always wonderful and my father always taught me that truth is always the best way forward. So I think the most interesting thing about my family is the way we support each other.
I have four brothers, all younger.”
