I guess you know many female models, just like Candice Swanepoel, Kate Moss, Miranda Kerr, Heidi Klum, Karolina Kurkova, etc.! But can you tell me the names of famous men on the catwalk? That's no problem, because I will inform you about the (in my opinion) most important, special and hottest ones!

One of my favorite (actually, it IS my favorite ^^) male models is Rick "Zombie Boy" Genest (also called "Rico the Zombie"). He was born August 7th, 1985 in Montreal and grew up in Châteauguay. He is tattooed across the majority of his body (he got his first tattoo at the age of 16 and spent thousands of dollars since then, e.g for the skeleton-tattoo, which he and the tattoo artist Frank Lewis created together).
He was discovered by Lady Gaga's fashion director Nicola Formichetti in 2010, after he became famous through a known facebook fan page about himself.
His first appearance in the famous public was on January 19th, 2011, where Genest was featured in the MUGLER Fall/Winter Mens Collection headlining the collection on Muglers wbsite. Since then he became very fast known all over the world. He's on the cover of e.g Vogue Hommes Japan and GQ Style UK and he also was featured in the video of Lady Gaga's "Born This Way"!
