Derek Zoolander might believe that Ã¢â‚¬Å“there is more to life than being really, ridiculously good lookingÃ¢â‚¬Â, we at Brandsynario feel it doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t hurt to indulge in a little eye candy every now and then
Like every year, we are back with our exclusive list of Top Male Models in Pakistan!
Unlike the past, modeling is no more just about sporting a chiseled Adonis body; itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a demanding profession where PR, audience interactions and brand endorsements are as important as good looks.
We have seen many new faces appear in the past year, however, very few have lived up to the challenge and marked their name in the industry. Brandsynario decided to team up withÃ‚Â Catalyst PR, one of the leading fashion PR companies in Pakistan to come up with a rating criterion to judge the models based on their popularity, looks, brand endorsements and fashion appearances.
Take a look at PakistanÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Top 8 Male Models:
6Ã‚Â Kashif Deewan
With a remarkable resemblance to Hugh Laurie of the House fame, Kashif Deewan stands out from the crowd of male models with his chiseled good looks.
He has worked with some of the biggest names of the Pakistani fashion industry including Omar Farooq.
5. Iftikhar Zafar
Popularly known as, Iffi Zafar, the lean, sultry model has won two Best Male Model of the Year Lux Style Awards back in 2010 and 2011.
4. Rizwan Jaffri
The multitalented hunk has not only made his name in the modeling industry but has also tried his hand at acting and singing.
With his brooding good looks, he not only makes a stunning model but a fine drama actor too. His first and only music album Yaraan Di Toli won The Best Album award last year.
Rated as equal to Athar Amin, the fashion savvy, eye candy, Jahan-e-Khalid is yet another top male Pakistani male model.
With never exactly ambitious about modeling, the 28-year-old model has done some stunningly good work, locally and internationally both. WhatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s more, if he ever goes into acting, he aspires to be like none other than the reigning prince, Fawad Khan.
2. Abbas Jaffri
Coming in a close second in all his bearded glory, is the unconventionally yet traditionally good-looking head-turner, Abbas Jaffri.
He entered the modeling industry, surprising everyone, with his unique Ã¢â‚¬Å“Ã¢â‚¬ÂJesusÃ¢â‚¬Â look, sporting a dense, unruly beard and long, unkempt hair, giving the clean-shaved groomed men a run for their money.
Jafri has won three Best Model awards so far and is still unfazed by the fame he has gained in a short period of time.
1. Shehzad Noor
Recently seen in one of StoneageÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s stunningly bold marketing campaigns, Shehzad Noor is currently ruling the male model industry of Pakistan.
Having won his first award for the Best Model of the Year back in 2013, Shehzad Noor, with his good looks, has fast made his way to the top. Having walked the ramp for top Pakistani designers including HSY and Faraz Manan and endorsed a number of brands including Sapphire, Yellow and Stoneage, it seems like Shehzad Noor is here to stay for good.
