A few days ago, I posted a photo series snapped by Rick Day for ADON magazine. One of the models featured in the “Stiff Upper Lip” editorial was the sexy Brian Shimansky. With a recently debuted commercial for Versace fragrance Eros and the aforementioned fashion editorial, I figured it was high time to feature this handsome stud for my Model Behavior series.
Shimansky was born in West Caldwell, New Jersey in 1988. The 6’2″ male model was discovered at a John Mayer concert by a modeling scout. Within a week, he was signed with two agencies- Major Models and D’Management. Brian shot to fame when he was featured in D&G’s Spring/Summer 2009 campaign photographed by the famed Mario Testino. Since then, he’s booked campaigns for Saks Fifth Avenue, Blanco Denim, Macy’s, Versace and many more. His editorial credits include spreads in VMAN, Glamor Germany, Attitude, L’Official Hommes and Dansk.
In his spare time, Brian likes to fish, hike, mountain bike, snowboard and play baseball. Regarding the latter, Shimansky pitched for four years during his college years. I’d like to slide into his ‘home plate‘ ;) It wouldn’t be a Model Behavior post without a dirty sexual innuendo, right? LOL. Check out his athletic build below.
Hair: dark brown
Brian looks like a Greek god in Versace’s fragrance commercial, but can also pull off Hamptons All-American prep.
That bottom lip is too sexy for words.
Incorporating some yoga stretches for a photo shoot.
You want some of this? Yes, please.
Swing that axe stud!!!
I wonder what’s saltier? The water or his (blank). LOL.
Sometimes patriotic fashion can be a bit tacky, but I’m digging those shorts.
I’m also loving this hat. It’s all the rage on the Great Wall of China.
All greased up in those tiny, tiny, tiny shorts.
That jacket would look killer with a fan machine on it.
Strut it out bitch.
Too hot for words in this black and white pic.
Peek-a-boo, I see you.
Look at that bone structure.
Even in casual unretouched photos, he looks smokin’ hot.
His look definitely works for Versace’s opulent fashion aesthetic.
Kiss my ass… yes please.
I’d like to rock climb that. And I’m not talking about the wall either.
Just hanging at the beach.
A little sepia action.
