Female models can strike a certain chord in the culture and elevate themselves to icon status on the strength of their runway walk. Their male counterparts? Eh, not so much. Sure, the male models of the moment can certainly develop their own passionate fan base, but rarely do they become household names. In fact, if your Aunt Linda or coworker Sam can name someone who happened to work as a male model, it’s probably because they achieved fame through some other means instead. Take Norman Reedus, star of The Walking Dead, who began his career years ago as a favorite face of Miuccia Prada, or Channing Tatum, who did time on the high fashion runway and in front of the cameras for more mass market brands like Nautica. Djimoun Honsou has an Oscar nomination under his belt, but he started his career wearing belts (and other items) in Paris. Even Boyd Holbrook, who could make the claim of being a legitimate male supermodel back in his heyday of the ’00s, is probably better known for his work on Netflix’s Narcos or as the villain in Logan. Take a look back at some of celebrities you forgot used to have serious modeling careers.
