Professional model Andrea Denver talks with us about what it takes to work as a male model in the industry. He is signed to major industry modeling agencies, Wilhelmina is one of these agencies. Denver has been featured in campaigns for brands such as MAC Cosmetics, Brook Brothers, Hugo Boss, and a lot of others. The Wilhelmina fashion model also has modeled for mainstream magazines such as Men’s Health, Lui, L’Officiel Hommes, and FourTwoNine. Denver recently finished a photo shoot with 2(X)IST, a popular men’s underwear brand. Aside from modeling, Denver can be seen in music videos with popular artists such as Jennifer Lopez and in Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space” as the boyfriend. Denver has even gained the blessings of Madonna with his talents.
Denver never strived to become a professional male model. As an Italian native, he focused on education in the States. After moving to the United States things began to change for the better. Less than three days into moving to the States, Denver was scouted in Miami, Florida by Wilhelmina modeling agency. Additionally, less than a week into scouting, the Italian native participated in Jennifer Lopez music video “I Luh You Papa.” Already an early starter to the modeling industry, his career begins to take off in the right direction. Denver had a fabulous time working with Lopez. “It was awesome. She was really nice and super kind. She was available for everybody,” says Denver.
Body, Fitness, Health
Fashion model Denver keeps his professional physique intact from exercising four to five times a week. He took the time to use every single part of his body. “I have been working less on my arms because they get big easily. This is not good for fitting clothes,” says Denver.
Denver gives us some of his daily exercises:
- Bench Press
- Climb Bench
He eats healthy with food choices. His food choices are not out of the ordinary. Denver does not have a strict diet or any weekly chart he goes by. He works daily to watch of kinds of unhealthy foods not to consume in his body.
Denver has many other great campaigns coming up in his career. Working as a professional male model is not often easy. Male models are somethings viewed as sex symbols when it is their job to expose their bodies wearing clothing. When asked how Denver keeps from falling into this stigma, he responds “I am happy when people appreciate the person that I am. I do not pay attention and always continue to do my own stuff.” Denver gives a glimpse on modeling in the industry and will continue to live out his career.
