Gone are the days when successful male models had to be aged 30 or younger, have flawlessly smooth skin and no hint of gray hair. Yes, a new wave of more mature, rugged men are seeking to supplant them, and they’re doing a very good job so far. In fact, they’re making the fashion industry more badass and more inclusive, which can only be a good thing. Perhaps, then, everyone can learn to embrace their gray hair and wrinkles as completely as these ten hot guys have done.
10. Anthony Varrecchia
The beefy and beautiful Anthony Varrecchia is a popular older male model, and it’s not hard to see why. After all, gray hair and muscles the size of the Hulk’s make for a truly striking combination. Unsurprisingly, this 53-year-old silver fox is a fitness enthusiast, too.
You may have spotted Varrecchia in a 2011 NOH8 campaign, holding up a photograph in honor of his late husband. And he’s certainly getting a lot of attention now as well. In fact, he told Loverboy magazine, “From Facebook to Instagram I receive messages that I’m an inspiration. I think to myself – wow!”
