Aug 10, 2016 by Sarah (Day Styles)

Supermodels aren’t as young they used to be. Sure, we are still graced by the likes of Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, and Cara Delevingne, but more and more designers and brands are turning towards experienced models to help advertise and sell their clothing. Well, with these silver foxes, we can understand the appeal. Discover our top ten male models with a little experience under their belts - combining distinguished looks, refined style, and chiseled features.

Mark Vanderloo, 48


SAM Worldwide

Mark Vanderloo is a Dutch supermodel who first entered the industry in university when he was accompanying his girlfriend (at the time) to different photoshoots! He soon graduated to being in front of the camera and began a successful international career that took him from Holland to New York and beyond. He’s been the primary model for Hugo Boss’ elegant black-and-white print ads and billboards since 2005. In the past, he’s worked for other labels including Calvin Klein, Valentino, Armani, Banana Republic, Donna Karen, Trussardi, and Guess, and he made a guest appearance on America’s Next Top Model in 2008. In fact, when he was working on “Zoolander,” Ben Stiller combined models Mark Vanderloo and Johnny Zander to find the name for his steely supermodel, Derek Zoolander.

Paul Mason, 50


Yorkdale Mall

Probably one of Canada’s most famous male models, Paul Mason is recognizable due to his white beard and his trademarked name, “Fashion Santa.” Although strutting through Yorkdale Mall as “Fashion Santa” might have skyrocketed Mason into the public eye, he’s had an international modeling career for years and actually runs his own agency. Mason has walked the runways in London, Barcelona, Paris, Tokyo, Milan, Toronto and New York. He was scouted for the first time when he walked in a fashion show for fashion students at Ryerson University in Toronto. He started with a degree in Social Work from Ryerson and put his talents to good use spreading the holiday spirit and raising money for the Sick Kids Foundation.
