Gabriel Aubry is so hot not only because of his nicely sculpted body but because of that masculine air and elegance he exudes –a quality that high fashion brands such as Hugo Boss and Massimo Dutti look for in a model specifically a model that would represent them.
The French-Canadian supermodel was discovered by a stylist in a night club. His exposure in local fashion spreads paved the way for his early ads for Versace, Calvin Klein, and Exte. When Hugo Boss came along, this beautiful Adonis finally made his mark as a supermodel, one of the very few top male models in the fashion industry with a whopping pay rate of $30, 000 per day. Aubry is under Wilhelmina Models in New York and the Beatrice Model agency in Milan.
With all his success with his modeling stint, Aubry is a very timid man –far away from his sexy and glamorous image in magazines. “I was always a super-shy person. I do not like to be made and followed by cameras.” Gabriel said in an interview. Gabriel Aubry is described as androgynous and boyish –something that the fashion world looks for in its male models. His sharpened nose and deep blue eyes do not fail to wow his fans and his peers. His square chin is an addition to his natural aura of seductiveness. His chest is not too buff and looks very good in a very classy way which separates Aubry from other male models.
Gabriel Aubry used to work for East Side Mario’s as a cook. He did not really think of becoming a model until he was discovered by accident in a night club three years later. The French-Canadian is a very humble and very timid type of guy who never liked being followed by the paparazzi much when he was already a rising star in the modeling industry.
Gabriel has a daughter with famous actress Halle Berry born on March 16, 2008. He named her Nahla Ariela. Gabriel Aubry said in his interviews that he and Halle Berry do not have plans to marry but would love for Nahla to have siblings in the very near future. He started dating the actress in 2005 when they met in a Versace ad campaign where Berry was booked to model for. A year later, Gabriel Aubry and Halle Berry went public by appearing together in the Donatella Versace Fifth Avenue boutique’s reopening. The model also had business ventures in mind. He owns a restaurant in Manhattan’s Upper East Side named Café Fuego. In the year 2008, Gabriel Aubry released his very first album for the restaurant – Café Fuego Vol. 1. He produced this album and even played the guitar for some of the tracks. Aubry is not only ruling the runway but he’s got musical inclinations as well.
Apart from managing his own restaurant and producing his own album to boot, Gabriel Aubry appeared in an ad for Macy’s early 2008 for Calvin Klein along with cooking diva Martha Stewart, American mogul Donald Trump and famous musicians Carlos Santana and Mariah Carey. Another interesting fact about Aubry is that he was the first and only male model who ever graced the cover of Uomo Vogue while at the same time appearing in four different campaigns in that same magazine. On the runways, Gabriel Aubry is the favorites of high fashion houses such as Versace, Ralph Lauren, and Cerruti among other houses. He indeed established the fact that the best male models come from Canada along with Phil Missig, Rober Perovich and Joel Mcmillan.
Gabriel Aubry started with his first big ad in year 2000 for Donna Karan New York (DKNY) and became the official face for Hugo Boss with Mini Anden a year later. By 2002, Patrick Demarcheller photographed this beautiful man for Tommy Hilfiger and a year later, he graced the ad campaign for Massimo Dutti.
Gabriel Aubry’s main stint is for ad campaigns because of his glamorous looks and seductive appeal. By 2004 he appeared in Esprit for its fall collection ad campaign and months later in Express for its spring collection. He then signed a contract to be the official face for the fall collection ad campaign for Versace a year later. His manly physique and his masculinity is what attract all the biggest fashion houses to knock on his door and they never stopped knocking.
With his so many projects and his top pay rate, Gabriel Aubry, a boy who lived in foster homes all his life, is now a very rich man. He never stopped working though because by November 2006 he appeared in a Calvin Klein commercial with Doutzen Kroes. On November 14th of that same year, he opened his restaurant Café Fuego in Manhattan’s East Village. His penchant for cooking was never lost. 2007 – Gabriel Aubry became the face of Calvin Klein’s White Label ad campaign together with Malgosia Bela. A year later, he appeared in V Man in its editorial along with fellow models from his agency Wilhelmina. His contract with the Calvin Klein White Label campaign was renewed by 2008. By June of 2008 he makes a comeback in the runway and walks for Versace’s spring collection show in Milan.
Gabriel Aubry has a long way to go in the modeling biz and that is something that we all ought to watch out for.
