David Gandy

David James Gandy (born 19 February 1980) is an English model. After winning a televised competition in 2001, Gandy became a successful model. In an industry dominated by skinny males, Gandy's muscular build caught the eye of Italian fashion designers Dolce & Gabbana. For several years, the duo featured him in their campaigns and fashion shows, ultimately leading other designers to move to a more masculine standard. Gandy has been the face of D&G's Light Blue fragrance since 2006, shooting multiple campaigns and touring internationally as the brand's ambassador. The increase in his popularity and name recognition resulted in a broad portfolio of clients, magazine covers, editorial photo shoots, interviews, industry awards and television appearances.



Having gained a reputation for his personal style, Gandy began writing a blog for British Vogue and lifestyle articles for Telegraph Men. He also launched two mobile apps: one for physical fitness and the other for style tips. Soon thereafter, Gandy was appointed by the British Fashion Council to their committee for 'London Collections: Men' to be a representative of the British fashion industry.



In 2014, he moved beyond modelling to designing his own range of underwear, lounge-wear and swimwear for Marks & Spencer, which became one of the company's top-selling clothing lines. Gandy was repeatedly included on British GQ's list of 'Best Dressed Men' and was named the 'Most Stylish Man of the Year' in 2015 at their Men of the Year awards gala.



Gandy started his own production company and has invested in small companies and film projects. He has also participated in numerous charity fundraisers, most prominently as the celebrity ambassador for the Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, Style for Soldiers charity and the 'Blue Steel Appeal', his own non-profit foundation. A car enthusiast, Gandy started writing car reviews for GQ in 2010 and has made televised appearances on Classic Car Show. He obtained a racing license in 2012 and competed in the 2013 and 2015 Mille Miglia Italian endurance races as well as powerboat races with Martini Racing.

Matthew Noszka - The Instagram Model!

Doesn't it annoy you where people get labelled, like Model Matthew Noszka because he got noticed on Instagram everyone refers to him as the Instagram model, its irrelevant where a model gets found, its about getting found.



He love basketball. Music and acting are also of interest to him,  especially coming from a performing arts college.     In his own words in a models.com interview "If I wasn’t modeling I’d still be in college playing basketball on a full scholarship and pursuing a professional basketball career in Europe. If it was summertime I’d be doing construction with my dad, which I do miss because although it was hard manual labor, I got to spend some quality time with him."

Lucky Blue Smith

Born on June 4, 1998, Lucky Blue Smith started his career when he was just 12 years old. He is well known for his platinum blonde hair, which he dyed on the suggestion of his agency Next Model Management.




Smith is the youngest of four siblings and the only male. His mother Sheridan is a former model and his father Dallon is a hobbyist musician who started a guitar-string company. He grew up in the small town of Spanish Fork, Utah.



He was scouted with his three sisters in Utah when he was 10 and began his career when he was 12. Upon being signed with NEXT Model Management, he and entire Smith family (who are all Mormon) moved to Los Angeles where the younger children are homeschooled. Shortly after their arrival, Smith and his siblings were photographed by Hedi Slimane for Vogue Homme Japan which generated immediate attention.



Smith's modeling career especially took off after he dyed his hair platinum blond at his agent's advice. By 2015, he had shot a dozen magazine covers and fronted fashion campaigns for Philipp Plein and Tom Ford.


He and several other models appeared in Tom Ford's fashion video with Lady Gaga for SS16. Smith has walked for labels such as Tom Ford, Versace, Michael Kors, Etro and Bottega Veneta.
