25 Hottest Male Models of All Time
Male models can make women go nuts. It’s not a joke, it’s science! Throughout the 50s and 60s, the model stereotype was all-muscular and super shaved. Then, in the 70s, the paradigm moved towards more hypersexualized boy toys for famous brands such as Versace. New York was shocked, but in a good way, and women were drooling over stunning male nudes. In 1990, Yves Saint Laurent and Hedi Slimane changed the rules of the game. Models were looking thinner, sharper, bolder. Right now, hipsters are in en vogue. Men wear huge beards, they have bulkier bodies, and while their appearance is more rugged and untamed, their clothes are sleek and modern. Here’s a delicious list with 25 hottest male models of all time. Enjoy ladies, and remember: although you can’t touch them, you can at least admire them!
