Instaboy of the Week: Willy Cartier

Instaboy Willy Cartier model

Photographed by Franck Glenisson exclusively for Out.

Androgynous beauty Willy Cartier blew up in 2010 when he was chosen by Givenchy's Riccardo Tisci for his fall/winter campaign. The same season, the model was tapped by Benetton and Evian for high-profile commercials that turned him into one of the most ubiquitous faces in the modeling industry -- at some point, he was even rumored to be dating singer Frank Ocean.

Cartier has become more quiet on the fashion scene lately, but we've kept an eye on the handsome Parisian, who boasts a mixed background of Vietnamese, Senegalese, and French heritage. At 24, he's still a strong game player, with more than 112,000 followers (@willycartier) on Instagram. Instead on running from one casting call to another, he simply seems to be focusing on quality projects, such as our exclusive photo shoot with Franck Glenisson. Discover it, below.
