His ability to talk and relate with people is an attribute that he feels has helped him with his career. Matt Gordon is not one of those who go over the top just because he models, he keeps his feet grounded always. His modeling career started when she signed with Mode Models and began modeling locally after that. By February of the same year, he gave an interview to Model-Max.com
Getting Personal with Matt
The sexy fashion model exudes sexiness like no other male model but this delicassen is more than your regular pretty boy; he is fiercely independent and fiercely beautiful. Although unexpected for such a pretty boy, Matt Gordon is quite an opinionated guy.
Would you believe he used to have braces? Matt recalls in one of his interviews, “I used to wear braces! I was this skinny kid who was doing some partying when someone from an agency in Canada gave me a card…”He tells this story with a smile. Who cares if he used to have braces, he has turned into this extremely gorgeous man.
What is more is that the boy’s got humor. When asked “What would make you happy and satisfied and satisfied?” he answered with a coy, “Is this the part where I say ‘world peace’? haha.”
At one point, Matt had to drop the other “t” of his name to separate him from the other Matts in the industry –double “t” or not, Matt or Mat is still hot hot hot.
Matt is the kind of guy who tries to have a balanced life keeping himself busy with the runway thing and as he said, “not getting too obsessed with the industry” while having fun. He does love to have fun because he did say that his favorite show or shoot is his favorite if there is an after party.
To Matt, having fun is not always going to a party. He defined fun as “Fun is enjoying the moment that you are in, whatever that may be. Not enough people stop and enjoy the right now.”
He sure does not get ahead of himself because this guy has got a head on top of those beautiful, broad shoulders. He said what he enjoys most in his work is where he sees lots of places all over the world and immersing in their cultures. He said that that is most priceless part of his vocation. He never really took his modeling seriously; he was just encouraged by closed friends and family.
His first modeling gig was a runway show in a mall in the city a few miles from where the male model grew up. He said in the interview, “I was surrounded by pre-teen girls shopping with their grandma’s. It made me think twice about what I was getting into.”
By early 2007 he moves to New York City since its where his agency and most of his projects are located. He was given his big break when he signed a contract with high fashion house Gucci. He opened the spring show for the said haute couture brand for its show in Milan. He opened yet another show on the same month and it was for Versace.
After that Matt Gordon never ran out of projects and has kept a very hectic schedule.
Mommy’s Little Boy
Matt Gordon loves his mother very much as all sons and daughters do. He makes sure she does not see those ultra-hot underwear pictures though. When Matt was asked about the reaction of his parents about his modeling he said, “I didn’t tell my family a whole lot about it. They respect me to make my own choices and are mostly supportive but it’s weird for them to see my pictures. I don’t show my mom the underwear pics.”
Matt does not think of himself most of the time because he thinks of what his mom and dad would say. In the interview with Model-Max, when he was asked which fashion capital would he want to be a top model; Gordon answered, “Probably New York because my family lives in America and it would mean more to them. I want to do it all.”
Matt Gordon on Reading
Matt Gordon try to make time for his reading but admittedly, the only book he has read from front to back is “Catcher in the Rye” because of it being an easy read. Matt said however that “….there is this book at home I keep picking up and trying to finish but I end up starting all over again because I don’t remember what’s going on! It’s about 100 years of generation in one family or something. I must have started it 10 times.”
Matt Gordon on His Ideal Lady
This gorgeous guy sure has a lot of female fans and most of these female fans whether they admit it or not wonder what kind of woman is Matt Gordon’s idea woman? Matt answered in an interview, “I’m more of a realist. There are no ideals. But I like loud, quirky girls that are comfortable with themselves and have an opinion.”
Matt Gordon’s Influences
When asked who influences him the most Matt answered with, “There are a lot of people that I respect and admire, but I wouldn’t call them heroes. I think that makes them larger than life and I think everyone is human and shouldn’t put them up on pedestals.”
What Matt has Learned in the Fashion Industry
He learned discipline above all things but he has also learned a lot about fashion etiquette. Matt said, “Don’t tell anyone what to wear unless they ask.”
