DIEGO MIGUEL

This Brazilian hunk smells like flowers, takes advice from Buddha and is obsessed with drones. We found out Diego Miguel’s secrets.

He's ranked as one of the sexiest models alive and, after doing a Google image search; no one can doubt he deserves being listed as that (there's a lot of shirtless images connected to his name). To make the coveted Sexiest Men list on MODELS.com, there are three criteria the model in question needs to meet: having been part of an underwear, fragrance or swimwear campaign, shot top tier editorials – and having a body that won't quit. Diego Miguel has all of the above. 

During his 12 years in the industry, the 32-year-old Brazilian has frequently been seen in big campaigns and on magazine covers. His work for Dsquared2 and Calvin Klein is perhaps the most notable. 

When we had Diego Miguel in the H&M photo studio, we asked the model to share his secrets with us. Keep scrolling to get to know him better.
