British model Sam Webb is an unstoppable force in the fashion world. Smoldering good looks (I mean look at those to-die-for brown eyes) and a humble attitude, have helped him gain the praise that he has. The 26-year-old began modeling after a chance meeting with a model scout while out with his girlfriend. He tells Fashionisto before being discovered, “I was at university and working part-time on a building site, digging holes! But I was training to be a boxer like my dad!” Well he has certainly progressed since then.
His first runway show was the 2006 Dolce & Gabbana show. What an opening gig to land! He’s worked with the brand consistently since, so he must have impressed them. Of working with them he says, “Stefano and Domenico are amazing to work with. They are great people personally and professionally. I look at the models I have worked with consistently for 5 years for DG and the whole team as a family.”
Webb has also done work for 7 For All Mankind, Corneliani, Diesel, Beymen, and Energie. Most recently he was named as the face of the Roberto Cavalli Class collection for the second season. Fashionisto reports, “for their spring/summer 2012 campaign and lookbook Sam is captured by Giampaolo Sgura in a selection of sharp and masculine looks. Clad in refined suits or wearing luxury leather jackets and printed shirts and tees, Sam is an effortless vision of young and sophisticated style.”
He also graced GQ China and did a retro style shoot for Perfect Guide magazine. The stunning model was once linked to troubled actress Lindsay Lohan, but never spoke on the matter or his orientation as some reports claim he is gay. In fact, he doesn’t do that many interviews at all, but privacy is a good thing. It keeps the drama to a minimum and the public interested, so he’s playing it smart to ignore the gossip rags.
He’s widely regarded as one of the top male models out now, and notoriously books job after job that many would love to land. You can follow his work on models.com.
