Golden Boy Andrea Preti | FashionTV's Model of the Week

Posted on 18th January 2013 | Model of the Week

Clean shaven or sexy stubble? That was the question flying around Italian model, Andrea Preti’s, thousands of Twitter followers during men’s fashion week in Milan only a few days ago. As the D&G campaign boy posted a picture of himself freshly barbered and asking “do you like me shaved?”

Country: Italy
Reputation: Sexy golden boy who likes to take risks!

Preti has won the hearts of millions of fans around the world with his youthful charm and dashing looks. One need only take a quick look at his recent Happy New Year video for Ermenegildo Zegna, to understand that the golden boy certainly knows how to work the camera, as he fools around jovially in 10 unique looks by the designer.

So how did the rising-star start out? And what does the future hold for the Italian stallion?

Model Moments

Preti first made his name in the model scene when he featured in the D&G Spring 2010 campaign captured by iconic photographer Mario Testino. This would mark the beginning of a love affair between himself and the camera. He has since appeared in advertisements for Dolce & Gabbana, Energie, Corneliani, and most recently the Carlo Pignatelli Cerimonia Spring 2013 campaign -- which plays on his unique charm and charisma, dressed in a dapper suit and corsage.

“I love to wear very classic [clothes], so suits and shirts is my style,” Preti reveals to FashionTV backstage at Milan Fashion Week.

He has since featured in editorials for the likes of GQ Germany, GQ China, Essential Homme, Hercules Magazine, and more.

But, still relatively new in town, Preti continues to build his portfolio with catwalk appearances on some of the world’s hottest catwalks from Dolce & Gabbana Men to Vivienne Westwood Men, DSquared2, Roberto Cavalli, and most recently made appearances on the Frankie Morello and Moncler Gamme Bleu Fall 2013 men’s shows at fashion week in Milan.

So, boys and girls, next question on everyone’s mind... What’s the secret to that Preti fabulous body? The answer: a lot of hard work! We’re talking pumping iron, press-ups, swimming... and sex! Doesn’t sound too bad to us!

On a scale of 1 to 10 how hot do you rate Preti
