Tyler Riggs is one cool as hell dude. The naturally stylish tattoed American, appearing on MDC’s radar back in December 07, has converted the last year into a blue chip bonanza with a campaign for D&G, walking for top designers like Jil Sander, Gucci and Givenchy and editorials for L’Officiel Hommes. 2009 was a fast climb to the top of the heap for this young man.

33. Boyd Holbrook
The star making team of Ines Van Lamsweerde/Vinoodh Matadin and Hedi Slimane at Dior Homme anointed their male ideal in the form of Boyd, the All-American beauty, hailing from Kentucky. Currently, an editorial workhorse, Boyd continues to grace the pages of the best fashion bibles and in campaigns like the Gap and Viktor and Rolf’s fragrance, Antidote.
32. Lyle Lodwick
While a lot of young male models are most comfortable in t-shirt and jeans, this young American model sports capes, fur coats and the requisite rocker attitude. It’s no wonder he’s cut such a wide editorial swathe through all the most stylish of men’s bibles. From Vogue Hommes Japan and Dazed & Confused to Details and Contributing Editor, the industry loves Lyle because, he just gets “it”.
31. AJ Abualrub
One of the first Ford/V Man magazine finalists, the strikingly handsome American with the ice blue eyes has an undefinable charisma, a sentiment certainly shared by Calvin Klein as AJ fronts their S/S 09 campaign. A wrestler brimming with the athlete’s self confidence, AJ brings a much needed frisson of energy to the industry.
30. Thomas Penfound
Only London breeds that special brand of cool exhibited by the rising young star Thomas. Burberry, Lanvin and Hedi Slimane have all fallen for his steadfast gaze. His wistful otherworldly beauty, so now, so current shines brightly with much more to come.
29. Arthur Sales
If there’s one thing that Brazil has become famous for, it’s the high caliber of models. The best ones dive passionately into their work and inspire all who work with them. Case in point? The beautiful Arthur Sales who appeared less than one year ago on Brazilian website Made in Brazil has garnered an entire issue of L’Officiel Hommes devoted solely to him, scooped up 5 campaigns while racking up designer credibility with 2 solid show seasons all within the short span of that year. There is no replacement for sheer passion for the job!

27. Josh Beech
The ultra charismatic Josh Beech is the epitome of rough-around the edges masculinity and the essence of London cool. The lead singer of the rock band Snish, he oozes that old fashioned rock sexuality all while balancing a full chart of nonstop modeling options. With the buzzed about Vogue Hommes International cover and editorials galore, this maverick young English lad is most definitely coveted, right this moment.
26. Jacob Coupe
The rapid rise of Mr. Coupe, thanks to his opening slot July 09 at the Prada show, has morphed into a juggernaut of bookings crowding his charts, including this season’s Prada campaign. Combine that with an intense presence in front of the lens and what you have is a new modeling sensation swooping through the landscape.
25. Marlon Teixeira
Former MOTW Marlon’s bronzed Brazilian beach vibe somehow totally worked with the avant garde Dior Homme brand, his breakout campaign. A study in contrasts? It’s fashion at its best! Marlon’s sensuality appeals across the board to all the top clients; we predict a long run for this young man.
24. Bastiaan Ninaber
The unconventional yet timeless appeal of the Dutch has reached a crescendo this season. Fans of Bastiaan’s extraordinary beauty gets a double jolt with his appearance in the painterly Cerruti campaign by Willy Vanderperre and on the cover of the first L’Officiel Hommes Italia by Milan Vukmirovic. His recent show season, walking for Cerruti, Prada, Ferragamo, Trussardi, Hugo Boss and Dries Van Noten attest to his appeal on the catwalk as well, scoring a perfect trifecta for the Dutchman in the booking wars for the best editorial/advertising/runway work.
23. Tomek Szczukiecki
The Polish born Tomek with the incredible bone structure perfectly epitomizes the slightly androgynous beauty all of a sudden in high demand. His expressive eyes reveal a poet’s intellectual soul and this season his appearance in the Versace campaign softens the hard edged images.
22. Paolo Anchisi
Great genes always prevail. As the son of 80’s top model Lynn Koester, Paolo Anchisi’s modeling future was assured the minute he stepped in front of the camera. V Man and Hedi Slimane were the first of the blue chip clients on board. This season, there is no other new male face with as many high profile campaigns as Mr. Anchisi. An auspicious beginning indeed.
21. William Eustace
William Eustace’s spectacular runway season for S/S 10 caps a stellar season and reflects a consistent body of work that has this stealth star finally getting his due. Lanvin and Calvin Klein, along with about 15 of the top menswear brands are just some of the champions of this new rising face.
20. Ryan Kennedy
Ryan Kennedy’s classic appeal with a twist has made this Buffalo, New York native a must book for the fashion elite. His ability to transform himself from chiseled and haute for blue chip clients like Louis Vuitton and Gucci to appealingly boy next door for Aldo and Benetton is a rare delight.
19. Nikola Jovanovic
This young man has had one of those stealth careers for the past several years, gaining ground editorially as well as steadily working for those blue chip money clients. With his Gucci pre Fall and main line campaigns, Nikola breaks onto the word’s radar with the kind of male beauty that is timeless.
18. Marcel Castenmiller
This ethereal, androgynous beauty has been booking up an editorial storm of late following his dreamy Kenzo campaign. What keeps the clients coming back is his laconic charisma. The combination of looks and personality proves to be a winner for this young man.
17. Ollie Edwards
The beautiful Brit with the perfect skin has been on MDC’s radar for a while now. In a recent editorial, he rides a motorcycle like a pro AND in person is eminently charming. With a killer combination of bad boy/good boy energy and a slew of editorials and campaigns coming out, expect Ollie to explode in the coming months.
16. Aiden Andrews
We’ve kept our eye on this young Kiwi/American ever since his quiet debut as one of V Man/Ford’s modeling contest winners back in Nov 08. His regular turns in all the right shows and editorials demonstrate that slow and steady CAN win the race. With his Jil Sander campaign for F/W 10, Aiden can be sure that his days of keeping that low profile are over.
15. Mark Cox
In the ultra competitive field of male modeling, it takes a special young man to stand out from the crowd. Mark Cox, the young Dutchman, has had the sort of career that is a dream. From top notch editorials like W (with fellow Dutch beauty Lara Stone) to a runway list that’s blue chip (Prada, Gucci, Jil Sander), Mark looks to be off to a flawless start.
14. Adrian Bosch
From day one, Adrian has been one of those boys whose presence clients started bidding feverishly for. When the dust cleared it was Hedi Slimane at Dior who had exclusive dibs on this Spanish-Danish stunner which means this is his moment to shine. Stay tuned for the next step in his evolution.
13. Ben Hill
Ben Hill scorches into the top 50 as the new favorite of blue chip clients seeking a model with classic matinee idol good looks.

With the heartthrob handsomeness of a young Anthony Delon, Jon leaps directly to the head of the modeling class. His appearance in the new Tom Ford film, “A Single Man” only proves his wide spread appeal.
10. Clement Chabernaud
He was the face of Jil Sander for several seasons which means his epicene features became instantly recognizable in every men’s magazine on the market. With 4 seasons of Jil Sander by Willy Vanderperre, the current Roberto Cavalli by Meisel and a tremendous show season for S/S 10, Clement’s distinctive profile makes his mark on the industry.
9. Adrien Sahores
Adrien’s mesmerizing visage has entranced us since he first appeared on the scene a mere season 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 is what is 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.
8. David Agbodji
David Agbodji’s near perfect flawlessness in face, figure and personality is unmistakable to anyone meeting the young charismatic Frenchman in person. When Calvin Klein anointed him as the face of their S/S 10 campaign, the seal of approval was official. Sleek perfection indeed.
