A longtime favorite of many industry insiders, Andres and his unique blend of sensuality and masculinity finally took off with such starmakers as Mert and Marcus in the hugely exposed J-LO Louis Vuitton campaign and that Chanel Allure fragrance campaign. The subject of Vogue Paris' first male profile with Inez and Vinoodh, Andres just might be the first male supermodel of the Zeros.

This multi talented Belgium mainstay made waves by walking alongside his fellow top men's faces at Dior Homme's F/W 18 show. Don't call it a comeback though because he's been a constant favorite of Armani, Vivienne Westwood and multiple other top designers through the decades. The piercing blue eyes & contagious smile clearly has the industry still enchanted. Twenty plus years and still booking the big campaigns is impressive indeed.

One of the most popular Brazilians ever is always a sure bet with his legions of followers. His easy going appeal and dynamic personality also make him a hit with the commercial clients. It's easy to see with the big L'Oreal commercials why Francisco is a natural on video as much as stills.

Gabriel Aubrey is one of those rare model icons that looms as a bonafide celebrity even as his legacy of fashion bookings marks him as one of the last of that era of male models worthy of the prefix "super". As a long running fixture of many top brands, Mr. Aubrey still clocks in for duty to this very day. Model watchers will always remember that incredible run that spanned clients such as Calvin Klein, Hugo Boss, DKNY, Versace and Tommy Hilfiger.

Is there a more perfect body than Garrett Neff's? Calvin Klein didn't think so and anointed him their front man for their MAN fragrance contract 2 years in a row. His continuous success lies in the full package that is Mr. Neff. Great hair? Check. Great face? Check. Perfect body? Check and double check.

A recent hair cut has helped the edgy German transition from long-haired youth to strong-faced adult, and the clients have noticed. He caps off a run of major editorials with this spring's neon-blasted Kenzo campaign opposite Devon Aoki. His soulful eyes and grace on the runway keep him a popular figure on the catwalks as well.
