We mostly believe that female models are turning heads and creating waves. But in today’s world male models have not only been showcasing the latest trends, but they are also actually setting it.

The British model redefined masculinity with his sharp looks, stylish manner, and powerful body at a period when slim was absolutely in.
Gandy is capable of considerably more than striking a graceful posture these days.
As a result, he writes lifestyle pieces, supports philanthropic organizations, launches apps, and even designs his own enormously successful menswear line for Marks & Spencer.

Success is the key word here, as O’Pry has consistently been rated as one of, if not the highest-paid male model in the world.

Whatever you may say or believe, you cannot deny the fact that Bekham has made a fortune out of his incredible good looks. In conclusion, he constantly ranks among the highest paid retired athletes in the world.
5. Luka Sabbat
Luka Sabbat (aka Mr. Fallback on Instagram) creates street wear trends when he’s not polishing them, which is quite an achievement considering he’s only 21 years old.
Sabbat’s ability to make absurd fashion statements, such as the cross-body bag trend, seem downright desirable is even more astounding.
It’s no wonder, then, that the well-known male model has garnered 1.7 million Instagram followers in a short period of time.
This is what it takes to be a modern-day influencer. Did we mention he’s rumoured to be dating Courtney Kardashian? Yes, this guy has a bright future ahead of him.

Miko wouldn’t have been permitted on the runway a few decades ago, but now he’s a huge proponent (and symbol) of male body positivity.
Is he the world’s most famous male model? Not yet, at least. But, as societal norms shift, he could very well make it, so we’re sharing the love.
7. Billy Huxley
We won’t go so far as to argue that top male model Billy Huxley started the hipster beard trend, but he surely contributed to its popularity.
That, combined with his incredible tattoo work, makes him a unique figure in the male modelling world, where flawless faces and unmarked bodies are the norm.
It has also aided this British male model in landing huge modelling contracts with ASOS, Adidas, and Vagabond.
Huxley continues to create fashion for the present period, despite the fact that the trends he helped to spawn aren’t as culturally relevant as they once were. Just ask his 360k Instagram followers.

10. Armando Cabral
Armando Cabral is an excellent example of a model that sincerely enjoys his work.

It’s good to see someone with the brai in a society where having a great face is enough to establish a reputation for yourself.
11. Hu Bing
Hu Bing is a one-of-a-kind model who has stormed the fashion world.He is the kind of model with staying power.
He began his profession in 1990 and continues to this day. He’s one of the largest (if not the biggest) fashion names in China, and he’s also the British Fashion Council’s first international menswear ambassador.
Hu Bing, who is nearly 50 years old, looks half his age, and I want whatever elixir he’s sipping.
12. Jon Kortajarena
Those cheekbone, those brows, man! This Tom Ford muse looks incredible in everything he wears. He may also add acting to his resume, having performed in Tom Ford’s “A Single Man” for a brief scene.

He’s Women 360’s only male model, and his resume also includes multiple acting roles. He was (and still is) an ardent basketball player before he was scouted.
That’s probably why he’s so dedicated to keeping his stunning figure.
15. Eric Rutherford
Eric Rutherford may be in his fifties, but he hasn’t allowed that stop him from maintaining his amazing style and stunning appearance. The silver fox is still modelling today and causing just as much controversy as the industry’s younger gents.
16. Cameron Dallas
Cameron Dallas may be one of the world’s sexiest models, but that’s just a sideline to his main job of documenting his daily life online. So, when he’s not doing Dolce & Gabanna commercials, this internet personality is busy posting for his 21 million Instagram followers.
