As boy-barmy JD Ferguson once proclaimed – "Not in twenty years has there been a face like VNY’s Sean Opry".
I, on the other hand, reckon it’s been much, much longer if ever at all. A both winsome and arresting gaze, perfectly formed facial contours and capacious mouth combine to form Sean’s unique and undeniable handsomeness.
A cover star – literally, he’s graced both Numéro Homme and GQ Style – for the Myspace generation, Sean’s rapid rise to international renown came by way of the social-networking behemoth responsible for the kick-starting of countless musical and medial careers.
He’s come from Kennesaw to Calvin Klein and in the earlier stages of his precocious career – he’s just 18 – enjoyed quite the affinity with the brand, featuring in the SS07 menswear show and the subsequent ad campaign.
Having debuted back in January 2007, opening the fall Yves Saint Laurent show Sean embarked on a serious global excursion conquering each and every fashion capital with mere strides of his statuesque gams.
And when it comes to campaigns, this boy’s got them in spades. Calvin Klein, Dsqaured2, Gianfranco Ferré and Belstaff are just a handful of the multitudinous labels Sean O has promoted.
Oh, and how often does one happen upon a model that not only is aesthetically phenomenal but brimming with charm to boot?
