Model of the Week: Sebastian Simon


m4 models


183cm (6’0″)

Place of Origin:
I was born in Corrientes, Argentina – and moved to Denmark at age 7

Ethnic Origin:
Half Danish and half Argentine with Russian heritage


How discovered:
I stopped by m4 on a trip to Hamburg with my dad, and we instantly had a good connection, and then I began!

Favorite things:
I love cooking, so I guess all my kitchen utensils! Am vegetarian going vegan, so cooking healthy and tasty is really important to me! Also the feeling walking barefoot, telling/hearing about dreams and meeting new people.

Favorite music, band:
Fever Ray, Joy Division, Belle and Sebastian, Azealia Banks, etc. I listen to a lot of different music. Mostly I just enjoy when artists really experiment and stride for a personal sound.

Expressing creativity through painting, drawing, poetry etc. Love reading! Spend a lot of time with my friends and family who are scattered all over the world. Pilates and healthy lifestyle overall!

Favorite piece of clothing:
My high waisted black Dr. Denim jeans!

What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
Cheesy American romantic movies, I officially hate them, but watch them secretly… Well, not a big secret anymore, haha!

Favorite modeling experience so far?
The Lanvin campaign, because the whole scenario was so new to me. It was a real cinderella story. I went from working in a small town in a dusty library, being completely anonymous, to suddenly standing on set with Steven Meisel and Alber Elbaz, as my first modeling job ever! I felt very fortunate.

What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
I feel very safe and it always keeps me grounded being there! But I’d love living in a big city as well…

Favorite artist (any kind):
Charlotte Gainsbourg! She has various talents and overall seems to be a deeply inspiring person.

Place you would love to visit:
Tokyo! I’d love to experience the madness of the amount of diversity of people combined with the beauty of such a strong culture and tradition.

Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
Tofu salad with mango and glimpsing through the app on my iPad!

  • Julien

    I’m not sure about him, his eyes are a bit too close from each other

  • N

    I met him once at a Casting in Hamburg and hes such a nice and polite person! All the best of luck to you from Berlin :)

  • Ali

    Very androgynous.

  • Tine

    Too strange, for very few things.

  • I have to say! Most unique looking model I’ve ever seen! Not that it’s a bad thing but WOW! Really something else here, lost for words completely.
    The nose, the hair, the cheeks! He could totally go for androgyny thing, Andrej has met his match in this ;)

  • Johan

    Exotic and androgynous. Great!!

  • Cloud

    I don’t know what you people are talking about. He’s beautiful and has such an elegant face.

  • You’ve got to be kidding right!

    Model of the week??

    I don’t know what’s been happening lately with the selection standards of male models.

    too many wrongs with him, not trying to bash but that’s the truth.

    We like somebody with unique and distinctive features but not this…


  • Sam way

    A very unique and unnusual look, however unfortunately the kind of look that once it’s been exploited and used by everyone it’s quickly shunted aside for the next unnusual look. You can see him making a big splash in the shortterm but no longevity.

  • efh

    love him omg!!!

  • Polo

    Good job with the Lanvin campaign… Ugh, his eyes are strong. too strong maybe.

  • Sascha

    Only 17? Well, I wouldn’t call him very handsome or call his face aesthetic. But he has got something special, something unique & also something androgynous, wich many designer are looking for. That’s why I think & also hope, that he’ll go far.

  • I’m not really getting it.

  • gloria

    that’s what industry wants, strange people. very promising guy :)

  • cori

    i agree with ali on the androgyny… he’s fantastic.

  • Lui

    Huge congrats to you hun, we’re all very proud of you in little Vejle! ;)

  • Pocahontas

    prfect cast for “Middlesex” if they were to make a film of it. though maybe too beautiful.
    I’m really curious about the tofu salad recipe!!!

  • Marty

    Great first job! getting the opportunity to work with Steven and Alber is a great kickoff. I agree with all of you on his features he could skyrocket or he could do jobs here and there it’s between being demand or good for a season or too.

  • Frederik

    I would say that he is a very specific model with the very closely set eyes. I’m surprised – and happy – that he got a Lanvin campagin. Even though I don’t think he will go that far I still wish him the best of luck. It’s refreshing to see that model bureaus are beginning to cast androgynous and unusual boys such as him and Andrej

  • Francisco

    There’s no beauty without strangeness.

  • very very androgynous

  • miguel

    I think he is good. model of the year.

  • lILY

    You know the trick where one puts his face next to a mirror, at 90ยบ angle…

  • his eye brows are so beautiful, i’ve never seen any thing like him, very androgynous

  • amalie

    Sebastian has so much potential! He has the strongest face and is so unique!

  • royy4

    Nice looking..but i like male models that look like men

  • lulu lovefiend

    So pretty! Rather intense too. I prefer his androgyny to Andrej’s. Hope he gets lots of interesting editorials. Can’t see him doing so well runway-wise coz at the moment all male models have a specific look and,well, that’s not it. Hope he’s a good sport and tries the androgyny thing; he was made for it.

  • dia

    now that’s a model holy crap how androgynous!!!
    amazing he is def a star!

  • cool cat brown

    He reminds me of Alexa Chung

  • James

    Lmao … Are you kidding me . He won’t make any money

  • Arina simak


  • Stripedman201
