The “Male Model” stereotype seems to be changing and we can likely thank social media for the shift in thinking. In the past, when referring to male models, many would consider them – shall we say – not so bright. The movie Zoolander did nothing but fuel the negative public perception. Since we can now follow the words and images directly from the mouth of fashion’s leading men via Twitter and Instagram, we have learned that many male models are smart, witty, and charming. Menswear fashion week in Europe is now upon us, so we’ve compiled a list of 15 of our favorite male models to follow on Twitter and Instagram.
Sean O’Pry on twitter/instagram: @Seanopry55
Although he is one of the most successful working male models, Sean is new to the social media world. Following this veteran model and industry icon is a must!
Benjamin Jarvis is a fairly new face to the fashion world, but he’s the kid that many are buzzing about. His social media style is raunchy, exciting and he often shares behind the scenes tidbits.
Hampus is a runway favorite for brands such as Etro, Emporio Armani, Michael Bastian, Missoni and many others. Following him on Twitter and Instagram might land you in his corner too.
Nikola Jovanovic on instagram: @vasilnikola
With striking features and an incredible walk, Nikola is another favorite among designers and stylists. In past fashion weeks, fans have flocked to blogs and forums to see images and gifs from shows that he had walked in. He continues to keep us entertained on Instagram with pictures from shoots, campaigns, and his everyday life.
Possibly one of the most loved models, Adrien, who has been referred to by his fans as “ThisGuyMan” since his famous Ford Models video, is also new to Twitter and Instagram. Humor and art are shown through his Twitpics and Instagrams.
Adrian Cardoso on twitter/instagram: @AdrianCardoso
Although he is known to many as Lais Ribeiro’s beau, Adrian stands on his own merits. As the face of DKNY, Adrian always takes his followers along on his journey whether he is at a casting or a show.
While he is naked in most of his published photos, Louis is quite chic when dressed. A free spirit and chill guy, Louis is a male model that should be on your radar.
John Hein on twitter: @heinjohn
John is a new face at Ford and is one to watch. Already a favorite of Interview magazine, he is quite the fashionisto in his own regard. Although he is cast in serious shows like Valentino, Bottega Veneta, and Belstaff, John shows his sense of humor and wit on Twitter.
Tobias Sorensen on twitter/instagram: @THESORENSEN
Tobias and his girlfriend Jasmine Tookes are one of fashion’s most beautiful couples. As much as Jasmine loves tweeting and instagramming, Tobias may have her beat! Not a day goes by without an Instagram from Tobias. The current face of Siviglia, Tobias is lovely to look at and keeps his followers posted on his activities.
Sebastian Sauvé on twitter/instagram: @SebastianSauve
“Blonde, blue, tall, upbeat, childish, likes games, comedy and food and good stories” are the words that comprise Sebastian’s bio on Twitter. These words are exactly what you will get from him on Twitter and Instagram. On top of all that, he is friendly and charming too!
Luis is probably still best known for his afro, but he is now sporting a low cut. A famous figure in Portugal, Luis is married to his hairstylist partner Eduardo Beaute. Together, they have an adorable son who is often the subject of Luis’ Instagrams and tweets. A lovely person, Luis also takes followers behind the scenes on the catwalk and at photoshoots.
Matt King on twitter/instagram: @MattKing07
Opening John Galliano SS13 is probably one of Matt’s proudest moments. This Client magazine cover boy is definitely one to keep your eyes on!

A proud British lad, James always finds fun in all he does. Besides tweeting pictures of himself, James also shares images of his best friends – models Charlie France and Linus Gustin. Following James means that you are getting a 3-for-1!
Robbie Wadge on twitter: @robbiewadge and instagram: @wadge11
Known for his boyish charm and smile, Robbie is a fan favorite. Male Models Mania tweens today would be able to tell you all about Robbie – what campaigns he has booked, what shows he usually walks, and what he had for lunch. Robbie knows all about his charm and uses it to his advantage when tweeting and on Instagram.
