Despite receiving a little less media coverage than their female counterparts, male models are still in great demand by designers, big brands and the public, as shown by their social media accounts, sometimes with several tens of millions of followers. Cameron Dallas is a prime example, sitting at the top — by miles — of the most popular male models on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, according to data published by Models.com.
Beginning as an online video maker, Cameron Dallas quickly made a name for himself in the fashion world and started modelling for Calvin Klein in Spring 2016. Things moved very quickly after that. The young man has modeled for numerous fashion magazines and worked with big names such as Dolce & Gabbana, Daniel Wellington, Ralph Lauren and Carolina Herrera. Fans have also shown their support, as can be seen on the model’s various social media accounts: Facebook (3.7 million followers), Twitter (16 million) and Instagram (almost 21.3 million).
Far behind, Hawaii native Jay Alvarrez ranks second with almost 6.9 million followers across all social networks. While still relatively new to the world of fashion, with a campaign for Aldo shoes under his belt, the young model woos fans with photos of heavenly blue water, white sandy beaches — and abs.
Lucky Blue Smith
It would be hard to leave out Lucky Blue Smith, who is taking the public, designers and the biggest luxury houses by storm, as shown by his latest campaign for the launch of the Kith x Versace collection. The American model has also worked with Tommy Hilfiger, Chanel and Dolce & Gabbana, and modeled for Iceberg and L’Oréal Paris.
