In an industry where female models command the real money and job opportunities, male models have been rather slow coming into their own. But thanks to more editorial work, runway shows and massive social media exposure, we are starting to see more male models get their due attention.

You may not know these male models by their first names, but you’ve likely seen them in various ad campaigns, music videos and commercials.

Check out our roundup of the world’s top male models:

1. Francisco Lachowski

The current top male model voted on by models.com is this Brazilian superstar (also pictured at top). Having worked on high-profile campaigns like Balmain and Tommy Hilfiger, this beauty has shown us true versatility as a male model. Even with his “boy next door” look, Lachowski can turn up the heat with his “blue steel” stare.

2. Lucky Blue Smith

A social media darling, it’s hard not to notice this blond, blue-eyed cutie. With a strong Instagram following of 2.8 million, this handsome American successfully crossed over to the fashion industry and landed several coveted covers, from GQ to V magazine.

3. Sang Woo Kim
