A Utah native and former boxer, Wendell Lissimore has the right balance of ruggedness and beauty to become the next male supermodel (Tyson who?)!
The 23 year-old signed with New York’s Red Models in 2006 and has been working overtime ever since. In 2007, he landed the Bloomingdale’s fall catalog and an editorial in Vanity Fair, and by 2008 he was walking in shows for Hermes, Ungaro, and Thierry Mugler. The model newbie even got a chance to work with one of the original supermodels, Linda Evangelista for a V editorial.
This month finds Wendell on the cover of Japan’s LUSSW, bleu magazine, and the Italian D magazine with his little son, Phoenix.
Blindie’s just ga ga for Wendell–AND Phoenix!
