Six years ago, NYU student Miles McMillan was set  to dedicating his life to painting. But walking the streets of Lower East Side, Manhattan, he caught the eye of a fashion photographer. Sounds like the regular model discovery story, you say. But we’d like to believe it was some sort of divine intervention. You see, in this office we spend a lot of time stalking Miles McMillan’s Instagram profile. A LOT of time. In fact, we probably even shouldn’t be paid. And we’re not the only ones mesmerised by those Californian curls and dreamy smile (actor boyfriend Zachary Quinto is too).

Since Miles McMillan was discovered back in uni, he has walked the catwalk for everyone from Dior and Lanvin to Alexander McQueen. You’ve seen him in multiple H&M campaigns, as well as several Tommy Hilfiger ads. And now you want to know more. You’re welcome – here are Miles McMillan’s model secrets.  

MY FAVOURITE PHOTOGRAPHER IS…
"I love a lot of photographers but working with my really good friend Sebastian Faena is always amazing because I feel we can really collaborate while on set.  I've never worked with him, but I've always loved Glen Luchford’s photographs."

IN MY CAREER, I AM MOST PROUD OVER…
”You'll see it when it comes out.”

MY MOST MEMORABLE SHOOT WAS…
”One of my first shoots was with Mert and Marcus and Linda Evangelista… so that was pretty wild.”

THE MUSIC THAT ALWAYS GETS ME GOING AT A SHOOT IS…
”Top 40, disco or like electronic is good throughout the day, but if I'm tired and we still have a lot of work to do, throw on some hard rap and we'll be done in no time.” 

MY CREATIVE OUTLET IS…
”I'm a painter, so when I'm not travelling or working I'm in my studio.”

MY MODEL ICON IS…
”Anyone who has been on the cover of a romance novel.”

MY BEAUTY SECRET IS…
”It wouldn't be a secret if I told you... But it's a good one. But La Mer never hurt.” 


Anyone who has been on the cover of a romance novel.
