Them Burberry boys.

These days, a model is not just there to stand and simply pose for a picture. Oh no, they have a long CV listing titles such as perfume designer, actor, musician, Author, Guest Editor. Some even branch out and take a turn behind the camera or decide its time after years wearing other peoples clothes to begin designing there own.

 A model can become a brand, some are well at the height of success and some are slowly climbing the rungs on the ladder to the all important stardom. we've even seen Agyness's long awaited return to Vogue this month after what seems like a season or two without her really fronting a major campaign  But by no means do they have to be female to achieve a cult following and celebrity rating.

 I currently have a few little obsessions; Tom Hughes, George Craig & Douglas Booth. What connects them? They all modelled for Burberry. It actually took me a while to realise where I'd seen them before but I didn't think of any of them primarily as models. So what else do they have to list?

                                                        Tom Hughes
Tom Hughes is from Chester, so he's pretty local to us. He's been in two films recently, Cemetery Junction and Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll. And he's also starred in two TV drama's; Trinity & Silk. After some minor stalking I discovered he plays guitar (who doesn't these days?) and his band is called The Quaintways.
Fancy a listen? Two songs on the bands myspace page is your best bet.  Age? 24.

                                                                    George Craig
Most people know yorkshire boy  George Craig. I'm just using this as an excuse to talk about him. He's a 90's child and I knew him first as the front man of One Night Only. Though he gained serious publicity when he dated Hogwarts actress Emma Watson last summer, she even appeared in the bands  'Say you don't want it' video. I wonder, would he rather be known for he musical ability or Cheekbones and floppy hair.
age? 20.

Douglas Booth
                You'd have a point in saying that Londoner Douglas Booth only really rose to fame last year. Although he's been in several films and TV shows people only really started to take notice when he played Boy George in 'worried about the boy' shown on BBC2 last year. I'm most looking forward to seeing him in co starring with Miley Cyrus in' LOL: Laughing Out Loud' which is due to be released sometime this year. He's not yet in a band but he can play an insturment...the trumpet!
                                                            Age? 18.

I wonder, where will they be in a couple of years? what will they be known as? In a society as fast and ever changing as ours you can re create yourself in a instant. Lets hope they stick around, even if its just for the bone structure they posess.
