America’s Next Top Model finally let male models break into the show. We think it’s long past “about time,” And in honor of Tyra’s groundbreaking move, we have a list of some of the hottest black male models working today.

Shermon Brathwaite

Shermon Braithwaite is from Brooklyn, NY, and attends Medgar Evers College when he’s not lighting up the runway. And get this: back in high school, Shermon considered himself “black, short and ugly”. We wholeheartedly disagree.

Joshua Williams

Joshua is the tatted-up bad boy of AMCK modeling agency. And in his spare time he’s an apprentice tattoist at Hammersmith Tattoo shop in London.

Adonis Bosso

Adonis is a native of Montreal, CA. Recently he’s branched out from runway modeling to video modeling. You can check him out in Natalia Kills’ new music video “Problem”.

Victor Ross

Victor Ross is more than just a model. He’s also an artist and a poet: good to look at and talk to. He looks like the complete package from here.

Michael Wilcher

Michael Wilcher is an up and coming model from New York City and we can’t stop staring into his eyes.

Rahmell Peebles

Rahmell is from the ATL. Recently, he parlayed his modeling career into an acting gig, starring in the independent film “No Soliciting.” We can’t wait for him to hit the big screen.

Karl Mitchell

Karl Mitchell hails from H-Town. He’s a 30-year-old swimsuit model who is certainly full grown…

Dorian Michaels

You may recognize Dorian from his work with H&M. That thick head of hair is hard to forget.

Sacha M’baye

Sacha M’Baye was working as a semi-pro footballer when a modeling agent literally chased him down. He’s been modeling ever since so you may have seen his spreads for Gap, American Eagle or in GQ’s style section.

Tidiou M’Baye

That’s right, Sacha has a brother and good genes clearly run in the family. Once Sacha’s career was on a roll, he recruited his younger brother Tidiou and his career quickly grew to include walking for Versace, YMC and Tommy Hilfiger.

Gaspar Jorge

This tall glass of chocolate is from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He started modeling in 2008 and now he’s broken in to the US market where he’s making a big splash.

Francis Vilavia

You may recognize Francis from his spread in Esquire. He hails from London and he looks great on a bike.

Yassine Rahal

Yassine is from Paris via Morocco. Before he made a name for himself, he had a lot of trouble getting established. Modeling agencies told him that he looked “black but not ‘strong'” because he had “a black face but a white body.” We’re not even sure what that means, but we find it hard to believe that he ever had any trouble finding work.

Kadeem Hudson

Kadeem Hudson hails from the ATL. He says he’s always had an eye for fashion so modeling was just the next step. We think it was a good career move.

Mathieu Marie Louise

Mathieu Marie Louise is part Indian and part Martinican. He moved to Paris where he started modeling at the age of 7. He broke into the big time after doing an international campaign with Diesel.
