Rick Genest, Male Supermodel



From New York magazine:

Paris time, noon NYC time, stylist Nicola Formichetti’s first runway show for Thierry Mugler walks at Paris Men’s Fashion Week. Formichetti has released four stills from a Mariano Vivanco–directed film of his new muse, Rick Genest, who goes by Rico, wearing the collection in what may be fashion’s Social Network. The stylist discovered Rico on Facebook and knew instantly that he had to make him a part of his men’s debut. “After friending Rico via Facebook and learning that he couldn’t get a passport soon enough Nicola flew to Montreal, where Rico lives, and shot the film,” a press release explains.
