Models We Love: Cole Mohr

9.11.2008

Speaking of Marc Jacobs and his newfound affinity for skirts, my male model obsession of the moment (though I'm just a lowly pop culture blogger, not a fashionista) is Cole Mohr, whose recent campaign for Marc by Marc Jacobs features the slender, tattooed Texan in MJ's finest women's wear. Right after those ads started appearing (including in Out), he was on the cover of Sportwear International.

Rumor had it he'd walk in Jacobs' show this week similarly attired (perhaps with a handbag as well), but that turned out to be a vicious tease. The upside of sharing my love for his vulnerable-yet-defiant posture at least netted me a constant stream of sightings from Out staffers, and the (old) news that we shot him in November 2006 as part of a editorial spread about "skinny yet lethal" boys who should buddy up to the new James Bond.

See his Burberry campaign here, and other work here, and read why Forbes named him #4 on their list of most sucessful male models.

Revisit our earlier tributes to the men who make Fashion Week possible: Sun Ho Yang, Chad D., Sean O., and Julien.
