Vivien’s Models: Top 10 Male Models of 2019
1. Samuel Wines
As a model, entrepreneur, influencer, philanthropist and DJ, Samuel Wines is an all round superman.
He founded the fashion and lifestyle blog, Man of Style, which has a devoted following of 100k on Instagram. With his dapper and preppy style, Samuel has made a name for himself as an aficionado of all thing’s fashion. He uses this blog to encourage men to take pride in how they dress and experiment with style.
Samuel’s also a self-proclaimed science nerd. When he’s not modelling or running his blog, he dedicates his time to the science charity, The Phoenix School Program, which is trying to improve access to scientific for schools around Australia.
2. Shayne Tino
As both a model, DJ and a designer, Shayne Tino is immersed in the creative world. When he’s not DJing or modelling for the likes of Myer and Industry, he’s working on his own fashion label, BY HIM, which creates modern, ultra cool suits.
Born in Zimbabwe, Shayne moved to New Zealand when he was 8 and then Melbourne several years later. He was scouted in Melbourne while working in retail—by the retail store themselves!
Shayne now travels the world modelling and working on his label. He’s made a name for himself as a hard-working, creative entrepreneur who can do just about anything.
3. Charlie Kennedy
Charlie Kennedy is the epitome of handsome. With his luscious shoulder length hair and insane body, he definitely deserves a spot on our list of top Vivien’s Models.
This Melbourne-based model has an impressive list of credits. He’s been in a campaign for Abercrombie & Fitch, been photographed by Mario Testino and has been featured in GQ Germany and Vogue Netherlands. Not bad for someone who got into modelling just for a bit of fun, part-time work!
When he’s not modelling, he loves playing Aussie Rules.

4. Steven Addae
As a model and a photographer, Steven Addae knows how to work the camera from both sides. The camera just loves his chiselled jawline and boyish charm. What sets him apart from other models is his sense of style and determination to succeed. In his own words, he sums himself up as “refined, particular and bald.”
Steven is always on the move. His father is from Ghana, but Steven was born and raised in Brunswick before moving to Fiji at eight years old. He currently resides in Byron, but is frequently found in Melbourne and as far as Italy.
Since signing with Vivien’s Models, we’ve enjoyed watching him grow. He’s done work for Nana Judy, Universal Store and Zanerobe, and we was last seen strutting his stuff at Pitti Uomo in Florence.
5. Chad Hurst
Blazoned across his chest is a tattoo with the words “living the good life.” It couldn’t be more true for Chad Hurst. This tattooed Aussie flies all over the world shooting for brands like Superdry and Thomas Farthing.
Chad is a former builder and personal trainer. He was discovered on a building site by a scouting agent, who convinced him to give the modelling thing a try.
When he’s not modelling, Chad is playing with dogs or doing crossfit, which helps him maintain his insane body. He has dreams of breaking into the film industry as an actor.
6. Clint Mauro
For a long time, Clint had dreams of being a model. He applied to many local modelling agencies but was rejected several times before his big break. It was a stroke of luck that he was scouted while working at an Abercrombie & Fitch store—and he’s been modelling ever since. He’s a regular on the Giorgio Armani runway, and recent work include shoots for GQ Taiwan and GQ South Africa.
He was named after his father’s favourite actor, Clint Eastwood. The choice was apt. They both share the same rugged good looks and intense persona in front of the camera. Like his namesake, Clint Mauro has dreams of being an actor and a writer.
7. Adam Farrugia
We predict big things for Adam Farrugia. This Gold Coast native has recently entered the modelling game with Vivien’s Models, but his future looks bright. He’s done campaigns for Champion, Shock Mansion and Assembly Label, and has his sights set on international work.
Adam is a natural in front of the camera. He knows how to pose, how to find the right angles and show off what he’s wearing. It helps that he’s drop-dead gorgeous, too. What we love most about him is his edginess. He’s covered in tattoos and has amazing personal style, which sets him apart from other models.
When he’s not modelling, Adam is playing rugby or hanging out with his pet boxer, who regularly features on his Instagram.
8. Mitchell Wick
When Mitchell Wick was scouted at a musical festival while on holiday in Miami, he thought it was a joke. When he finally realised the scouting agent was serious, little did he know he’d become the success he is now. He’s a certified influencer, with nearly 400k follows on Instagram. He travels across the globe shooting campaigns and editorials, most recently shooting a Guess holiday campaign. Vivien’s Models represent him in Australia.
This Australian model is a telecommunications technician by trade, but has since devoted his time to modelling and DJing. A lover of house and techno music, he plays at events all over the world, from Miami to Bali.
In his spare time, Mitchell enjoys the outdoors. He loves to surf and go on long hikes, but he’s also just as happy relaxing listening to music.
9. Henry Hinge
With his slicked back hair and signature pout, Henry Hinge is reminiscent of an old-school bad boy. He’s oh-so debonair and stylish, making him the perfect model for commercial work. You’ll find him in campaigns for Emporium Melbourne, Jay Jays and Kenji.
He was discovered on Instagram by photographer, Mikey Whyte. At first, Henry thought it was a scam, but after meeting up with Mikey Whyte, he realised he was serious. Together they built Henry’s portfolio and helped him get signed by various agencies, including Vivien’s Models.
Henry was born in the Philippines but has lived all over the world, including Singapore, India, Hong Kong and now Melbourne. He studies advertising and marketing at university, pursuing modelling on the side.
10. Tallow Montague
Tallow Montague is one of those people who was born to model. He’s got a jawline that could cut glass, as well as piercing blue eyes framed by dark eyelashes—it’d be criminal for him not to model. While Tallow is only in the early stages of his modelling career, we’ve got high hopes for his career.
This Queensland model has the potential to work all over the world. His look is simultaneously commercial and editorial, as he’s able to pull off even the most high fashion looks. Since signing with Vivien’s Models he’s done work for brands like Politix and Zara.
We’re so excited to watch Tallow continue to grow on his modelling journey. Keep your eyes peeled for his work in the future!
