”I’M OBSESSED WITH YOGA”

”I’M OBSESSED WITH YOGA”

When Marlon Teixeira is not starring in the new H&M summer campaign, this Brazilian hunk spends his days by the sea, surfing, doing yoga and cooking with friends.

If you’re already in love with Marlon Teixeira, you’ll be delighted to read that he loves cooking for romantic dinners, dreams of getting married and having babies and is serious about sunscreen and yoga. If you’re not already in love with Marlon Teixeira, we recommend you check out H&M’s new summer campaign first.  

The Brazilian model entered the fashion industry with a bang. As a teenager, his grandmother introduced him to a family friend, who owned the modelling agency Way Models (the same agency that has given us models like Alessandra Ambrosio and Caroline Trentini). Marlon went to Paris, and scored his first gig as a season exclusive for Dior. Since then, he has landed some of the most prestigious campaigns and shows in the industry, and ranks both as a “top icon” and “sexiest men” on models.com. Read on for his top model secrets. 

IN MY CAREER, I AM MOST PROUD OVER…
”What I have built as a Brazilian model in this industry.”

MY MOST MEMORABLE SHOOT OR SHOW WAS… 
”My first one. I didn’t know what Christian Dior was in this industry, so I walked without pressure. And I also have a special memory when I was shot by Steven Meisel for an Italian Vogue cover.”

THE MUSIC THAT ALWAYS GETS ME GOING AT A SHOOT IS… 
”Bob Marley is always on my playlists.”

MY CREATIVE OUTLET IS… 
”Cooking. I would like to do a cooking class.”

I love cooking pasta for a romantic dinner.
