The naked truth about male models

In Unglamorous, Fusion’s Pedro Andrade pulls back the curtain on male modeling to reveal the grittier side of an industry we think brings nothing but wealth and fame. We follow Cameron from his trailer park home to the cover of Italian Vogue and meet the models who've landed the most highly coveted jobs—the faces for brands like Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, and Hugo Boss—who also share apartments the size of parking spaces and are often thousands of dollars in debt.

Check out the six part series below for a hard look at what it takes to “make it” in a world that can often be deceptively glamorous.
