Versace, H&M, Dolce & Gabbana, Krizzia Uomo, EXTE, Nautica, Sean John and Fubu
Delicate, sexy and a body to die for, Christian Monzon possess all the assets that make him an uprising star in the fashion industry. Unlike the typical slim built and long haired male models, Christian Monzon's image is simple, yet powerful. An always clean-shaven head and a very muscular body transcend a representation of American pop culture and a crossover between fashion and urban streets.
Born in Brooklyn, New York, Christian Monzon grew up on city streets and rough neighborhoods. His active roles in sports, especially basketball has kept him out of trouble. Christian soon started modeling after being introduced to one of the agents at IMG models. The early assignments available to Christian were mostly ramp shows for American brand names associated with hip-hop, which has made him a regular for Sean John, Fubu and Nautica. However, he had been overlooked by some of the European fashion houses due to his image and the compromises that he wouldn't make to meet their demands.
Christian's rise to the top of his profession suddenly came in the year of 2002. First being selected as the spokes model of Versace Sport, he is then featured on the cover of Out magazine and the inside spreads. And Christian finally got the interest and recognition from designers and American public that he deserves. Christian's hot streak continues on with his spokes model roles in H&M campaign, Dolce & Gabbana underwear campaign, and the latest Dolce & Gabbana perfume.
Christian is still regarded as one of the under-rated models nowadays, but his popularity in the male modeling business is growing constantly. A list of campaigns and runway walks under his belt, including Versace, H&M, Dolce & Gabbana, Krizzia Uomo, EXTE, Nautica, Sean John and Fubu, well proves the high demand for his booty.
Between his works, Christian goes to gym exercising four to five times a week, and plays basketball whenever he can. And just you don't remember: Christian plays a street basketball player who steals the leading lady's heart on R&B/pop artist Pink's debut music video, "There You Go".
