7 YouTube Stars Who Strutted Their Stuff on the Runway…as Legit Models!
We know we still refer to them as ‘YouTube stars,’ but people who post videos on the Internet are SO much more than just that. Content creators like Caspar Lee and Joe Sugg broke free from the site to star in feature-length films, while people such as Colleen Ballinger and Todrick Hall found their way onto television. Some YouTubers, however, choose to go in a different direction — modeling.
We know what you’re probably thinking — ‘YT stars modeling? You mean, like, being the face of some random brand that only appears online?’ Actually, that’s not at all what we mean. Some celebrities who found fame thanks to the social media world actually took part in MAJOR fashion shows for MAJOR brands all around the world. In fact, three YouTubers just got finished walking in one of the biggest runway shows during Milan Fashion Week!
At this point, Cameron Dallas is basically the king of Fashion Week. The Viner-turned-YouTuber-turned-model actually opened the Fall/Winter Dolce & Gabbana show at Milan Men's Fashion Week back in January, and then later strutted his stuff again in a second look.
The 22-year-old is also signed with IMG Models and is one of the faces of Calvin Klein. Needless to say, we're sure we'll be seeing him on many more runways in the future.
