"Are You A Model?" A rubbish pickup line? Or maybe there really is something about the way you look...

What Successful Models Actually Look Like

This article takes a look at six of the world's most commercially successful male models of the last few years. Their looks really are very diverse. 

1. Miles McMillan. Miles was born in 1989. He started modelling at 18 years. In the 2017 he appeared in campaigns for Tommy Hilfiger, Michael Kors and Fendi. Miles is a keen painter and paddle boarder, too.

Your Uniqueness is Your Strength 

These 6 models look very different to each other. And if we create a story like this in a year (we will) we'd predict that diversity will be even more pronounced. 

Models will increasingly represent actual customers. Either accurate blueprints or aspirational avatars. But either way, the gap between what traditional models look like and what actual consumers look like - will close.
