Jorge Villarreal

I have shot many new faces for some of the best agencies in the world. But, this past weekend, I shot the first male model who could morph from a lovable man child to a sex siren to a vulnerable lovestruck cherub to a confused wayfarer to a dancing hipster in a smile; in the pulling back of his hair; in a slumped posture; or, in a defiant gaze . . . on a dime. This was the day that I shot Jorge Villarreal.

Originally from Mexico, Jorge lives in Texas now where he had been pursuing a degree in industrial design. However, earlier this year, he was discovered by Sean Bennett of Specimen Models. Now, placed with Ford Models and rebounding from a direct booking for his first major runway show ever, the Bottega Veneta show in Milan this past summer, Jorge is poised to take NYC this fashion week. And, possibly the world? Check out Jorge’s first editorial as presented in The Fashionisto (thanks Carl) and some out takes from our day.

Special thanks to Sean of Specimen Models and Dhaniel of Redken for Jorge’s fabulous hair.
