Not a new kid on the block, but still hot and gorgeous, Spanish model Andres Segura Velencoso was born on 11 March 1978.
He grew up in Tossa del Mar, a small seaside town near Barcelona, Spain.
He is the picture perfect image of a young Spanish man: dark brown locks of hair, a debonair and elegant smile and dark mysterious eyes.
Andres finished school before venturing into a Spanish modelling agency, Group Models Management. He has been a model for over 10 years now but like many, his journey to success was filled with frustration and rejections in the beginning.
With his newly grown long hair, Andres finally landed in New York in the early spring of 2001. Undeniably gorgeous, yet unpolished and speaking no English, Andres travelled overseas for his first time to New York City.
Natalie Kates, an agent from New York based Q Model Management opened the door to Andres. Within days of arriving he found himself on the set of a shoot in East Hampton, New York. Despite the hardships of a language barrier, he caught the eyes of some of the industry's most famous photographers including Francois Nars, Michael Thompson, Hiro and Greg Kadel.
In the Spring 2002 his first campaign for Banana Republic made him one of the most recognizable men in fashion. His handsome smile brought him from a small village to a billboard at the top of Times Square.
For a year following, he continued his modelling when photographer duo Inez and Vinoodh and stylist Joe McKenna chose him to be the subject of French Vogue's first male model profile. The issue, which debuted in April 2003, launched him to the eyes of fashion and catapulted him to become the new male icon.
Andres starred in a Louis Vuitton campaign in the Fall of 2003. The campaign, which was shot by photographer duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot, featured the Latin hunk opposite international star Jennifer Lopez.
His sharp good looks have now matured into ultra-sexiness and his English is swept with a sharp charming accent that makes him the new definition for male beauty.
Andres has appeared in Citizen K, The Face and the Brioni and Exte Campaigns, the cover of UOMO Japan, along with television profiles on Entertainment Tonight and EXTRA. Andres appeared in commercial ads for Ermenegildo Zegna, Etro, H&M to name just a few.
He worked on the Corto fashion editorial spread with Karl Lagerfeld featured in 2003 French Vogue and the highly visible cologne ad for Chanel Allure Homme Sport was one of my favourite of his work.
Andres did a swimwer shoot for the February 2009 edition of OUT Magazine. Andres travelled along with photographer Xevi Muntane and Out's Fashion Director Grant Woolhead for this Buffalo Stance shoot, inspired by the late style legend Ray Petri.
Andres posed nude for the cover of the Spanish Vanity Fair edition in April 2010.
He also worked with reputed photographer Milan Vukmirovic for the sport inspired editorial of the latest edition of L’Officiel Hommes magazine.
And of course he is Kylie Minogue’s boyfriend. The lucky girl!
