Iconic screenwriter, director, film and television producer, and LGBTQ rights activist, Dustin Lance Black can add another job to his resume: SUPERMODEL OF THE WORLD. Watch out, Gigi!
He recently signed with Wilhelmina Models, the same agency that counts Nicki Minaj, Shawn Mendes, Demi Lovato, and Nick Jonas as clients.
“In a time when too many are using our differences to divide us, I want to help lift our differences up as what make us magnificent, what make us powerful,” said Black. “Fashion has the potential to help our individuality roar, and right now, we must use every tool in our arsenal to amplify that roar.”
Adds Wilhelmina CEO Bill Wackermann:
“Dustin Lance Black is a true visionary talent. He uses his artistry, voice and talent to give voice to individuals and ideas who need to be heard,”
The agency will work with Black to secure editorial opportunities and fashion campaigns.
Of course, we at WOW have always known he’s got what it takes to CONQUER THE FASHION WORLD. Here he is, above, in one of my favorite pictures from the 2012 World According to Wonder book. Maybe I just have a thing for milkmen. Anyway, I could stare at it all day.
Below, his covers of OUT and Attitude
