The It Boy Cultural Study

Unlike The Vampire Diaries, or The Princess Diaries, or even The Secret Diary of A Call Girl...well, maybe a little like that, New York Magazine's Model Diaries is not a fiction but a true anthropological documentation the likes of which David Attenborough could be proud. This is some of the finest Model Diary-keeping I've seen simply for the amount of wild and fascinating information it packs in about the invasive species (non-indigenous) of male model that makes New York its home for this week of migration known as Fashion. From just this video surveillance we can learn:

The most important thing to an It Boy? Beer. Preferably in bottles. Is able to hide said bottles in convenient locations backstage.

Small species of dogs, which may cohabitate with species of It Boys, are unwelcome additions.

Preferred food of the It Boy? Meatballs. Expertise in eating? None.

Make-up hurts.

The main daily activity of the male model is To Wait. This is not to be confused with a waiting job, i.e. the diner profession they held before evolving in natural rank to their It Boy status.

Male models do ride the subway and are in fact easily entranced by those attempting to sell them...what may be glossy Korean porn mags. More documentation on this matter is needed.

The preferred pastime of the It Boy, when not forced To Wait, is to fake lyrics to songs with lyrics about the location in which they currently preside. Also table tennis.

Cole Mohr shows up everywhere.

The It Boy has no idea what publication they are being filmed for. Ever.
