Evening Eye Candy: Model Leonardo Taiwo
I’d like to shift your focus this evening on my Nigerian brethren, model Leonardo Taiwo. Tall, dark and handsome (and repping London town) he’s a talented model who has shown off his talents for a variety of fashion campaigns and magazines, including Vogue Italia. Taiwo hasn’t been in front of the camera too long, making the decision that he wanted to pursue modeling just a couple years ago, and after dealing with a lot of rejection, doors started flying open. I can understand why. The bone structure, that gaze, that skin and that lean body (and I’m kind of envious of those thick eyebrows)–he’s definitely a looker. But if you don’t believe me, keep flipping and check out Taiwo’s portfolio and proof of his good looks.
As you can see, the model has quite the body on him. Talk about chiseled!
Taiwo said on his Tumblr that his Nigerian mother wasn’t too psyched about him trying to turn his sights to modeling, but with time, she came around:
“Although my mother does want me to study a profession. She does support me as a model and any dreams i pursue. How?.. I think its all about building a friendship with ur parents.”
So what do you think? Taiwo is the next big thing in modeling, and we’ll be keeping our eye on him (because it’s so much fun to do so). Share your thoughts below and let us know if you think Taiwo is your cup of tea.
