NOAH MILLS: I AM OBSESSED WITH SCANDINAVIAN ARCHITECTURE

NOAH MILLS: I AM OBSESSED WITH SCANDINAVIAN ARCHITECTURE

This male supermodel's torso has played a key role in sitcoms, on billboards and magazine covers. Meet the skilled rapper and experienced carpet shopper Noah Mills.

David Gandy, Mark Vanderloo, Werner Schreyer, Tony Ward – and Noah Mills. The list of male models ranked as supers on MODELS.com is only ten names long and the criteria to make the coveted ranking are hard to meet. According to the directory, a super (among other things) has to have at least seven years of high profile work with top-tier magazines, photographers and brands. He also has to have had media presence outside the fashion industry – and some of his work needs to be of an iconic nature.

32-year-old Noah Mills is one of the ten names on that exclusive list. 

His modelling career started when he was 20 years old, still in college and living in Vancouver in his native Canada. This was in 2003 and the period that followed him being discovered consisted of going back and forth between the world's fashion capitals, walking shows for some of the biggest brands and shooting editorials for the most prestigious magazines. In 2005, he signed a contract with Dolce & Gabbana – which might have been what set him on the path to becoming a super. During the few years that followed, he signed contracts with other industry heavyweights like Versace and Michael Kors. Of course, during all his years in the industry, he has teamed up with H&M many times.
 

I have gone for long runs in totally random cities and it always connects and grounds me.

Like most extremely successful models, Noah Mills has ventured into other fields of work, most notably acting and writing. In 2010, he made an appearance in Sex and the City 2, playing one of Samantha's (Kim Cattrall) love interests. He followed up his film debut on television, making a three-episode guest appearance on 2 Broke Girls

At his latest shoot for H&M, the model/actor – and now also writer – took time to share his top model secrets with us. Keep reading to find out what he hates, what he's obsessed with and how he keeps his face in check.

MY FAVOURITE PHOTOGRAPHER IS...
"That's tough as photography varies from style to style. One of my favourites who I've worked with is Guy Aroch. Another favourite is Robert Capa."

IN MY CAREER, I AM MOST PROUD OVER...
"I think I'm most proud that I made it through my 20s [and that I'm] still working with a gratitude and joy that I thought maybe I had lost. I haven't lost it and I'm really happy to still be collaborating and finding new ways to make work interesting."

MY MOST MEMORABLE SHOOT/SHOW WAS...
"So many, but the most memorable one is probably the Dolce & Gabbana Pour Homme fragrance [campaign] that I did with Laetitia Casta. It was shot by Mario Testino in Sicily. It really felt like a movie set that was sort of removed from the world – I loved that."

THE MUSIC THAT ALWAYS GETS ME GOING AT A SHOOT IS... 
"Van Morrison."

MY CREATIVE OUTLET IS...
"... it has always been working on stage – in class or small productions off Broadway. But recently I've taken to writing and have a couple projects I hope to get produced."

MY MODEL ICON IS...
"Tony Ward. I just worked with him and he's got such a young soul and is still insanely cool."

MY BEAUTY SECRET IS...
"Sleep, sun and moisturiser I guess. I hate feeling dry."

I KEEP IN SHAPE BY...
"Surfing, boxing, gym and yoga."

FOR A QUICK HAIR FIX, I...
"I put a hat on, my hair is curly and crazy."

MY DE-STRESS TRICK IS...
"Exercise, no matter where I am. I have gone for long runs in totally random cities and it always connects and grounds me."

MY SECRET TALENT IS... 
"I can rap, haha!"

I SMELL LIKE...
"Hopefully my cologne, Hinoki from Comme Des Garçons."

MY FAVOURITE OFF DUTY LOOK IS...
"Always light-blue jeans, white sneakers and either a grey or black crewneck sweatshirt."

RIGHT NOW, I AM OBSESSED WITH... 
"Scandinavian architecture!"

THE BEST BEAUTY TIP I’VE EVER RECEIVED IS...
"I think sunblock, but I never use it."

MY FAVOURITE HOTEL IS...
"The Bowery since I mainly live in LA now. It makes New York feel a little more like home."

MY FAVOURITE RESTAURANT IS...
"For cheaper: Cha Cha Chicken. For pricier: Giorgio Baldi. Both are in Santa Monica, LA."

FOR BREAKFAST, I ALWAYS HAVE...
"I mix it up, lately muesli and strong coffee!"

FOR A LONG FLIGHT, I ALWAYS PACK...
"Noise-cancelling headphones and a long book! CurrentlyShantaram."

WHEN I HAVE SOME FREE TIME, I...
"I'm in the process of remodelling a house, so I like to resource inspiration and materials."

THE BEST ADVICE I’VE EVER RECEIVED IS... 
"Care less about what others think."

MY FAVOURITE THING TO SHOP WHEN I AM AWAY IS...
"It depends on the city or country I'm in. In Turkey I always get towels and carpets."

BEING A MODEL, I’VE LEARNT...
"To not take myself too seriously and that if I'm nice to people, they'll be nice back."

POST-MODELLING, I WOULD LIKE TO... 
"Produce my own TV shows and movies."

MY FAVOURITE TV SHOW IS...
"Not very original but Game of Thrones! It's so good."

RIGHT NOW, I AM READING...
"Shantaram and always a little Pema Chödrön to keep my mind moving."

MY GOAL IN LIFE IS...
"To regret as little as possible."
