The Money Guys
How The Money Guys list works
Modeling is a fickle profession. Faces of the moment come and go in quick succession and rarely does anyone stand the test of time, but for the few who do special acknowledgment is deserved. It takes more than looks to make it into male modeling's top leagues; it takes tenacity, personality, drive and the backing of elite clients. Certain men have all that and then some and where they go, the big bucks follow. With their impeccable portfolios and time tested appeal, these are the men clients request by name - MDC presents, The Money Guys.

Adrien's mesmerizing visage has entranced us since he first appeared on the scene several seasons ago. The soulful eyes and perfect features highlight a mischievous twinkle that comes out every so often in his pics. Givenchy, Lanvin, Prada and now YSL are some of the premium clients who count themselves fans of his presence. That vitality and a fantastic F/W 11 show season, is what's needed to stay at the top in the industry and with the smooth trajectory so far, we predict Adrien will be a long distance runner.

Few models have the consistency and longevity of the iconic Simon Nessman. Since his start in 2007, the Canadian superstar has shown up on nearly every runway and in every magazine imaginable, not to mention his countless campaigns for the likes of Givenchy, Calvin Klein, Versace, Ralph Lauren, and D&G. The soft-spoken surfer is one of the few male models who can safely be said to have crossed over into the mainstream, his face recognizable from numerous billboards and magazine pages and even Madonna's "Girl Gone Wild" video. His position at the top of the industry was cemented last year with the launch of his multiyear contract as the face of Giorgio Armani's Acqua di GiĆ² Essenza, in a stunning black-and-white photo by the legendary Bruce Weber. His run of six seasons so far as the face of Michael Kors proves that he has many loyal fans in the industry, exactly what you would expect from our new number-one Money Guy. We're looking forward to even brighter heights for Simon in the years to come.

Since his discovery at the tender age of 15, Tyson has been one of male modeling's stars. With stints for brands like Dolce & Gabbana, Armani, Versace and Dolce Tyson is a bonafide campaign icon, but his ongoing editorial work is consistently blue chip as well. Open up an issue of Hercules, VMan or Details and you're sure to see Tyson's handsome face staring back at you.
