Man Candy Day: Andres Velencoso Segura, Jon Kortajarena & Oriol Elcacho

Today I exceeded myself and as man candy I will feature not one, not two, but three beautiful men! Is it a threesome? well, not exactly, even if in the photo shot in which they are featured together, by Karl Lagerfeld, this three handsome spanish men are dressed and maked up more than women. But from what I read around, Andres, Jon and Oriol are women's men, and so, girls out there, enjoy them!

Jon Kortajarena, born May 19, 1985, in Bilbao, Spain, is a Spanish model best known for his ad campaigns for "GUESS?" Kortajarena made his debut in 2004 at the fall Emporio Armani and John Galliano shows in Milan and Paris. In the same year, he became the face of Just Cavalli for spring. His pierce stare, pout, masculine cheekbones looks led to more bookings and photo shoots. In 2007, Kortajarena received the opportunity of a lifetime: he signed with "GUESS?" With the heartthrob handsomeness of a young Adonis, Jon leaps directly to the head of the modeling class. 200 pages and the cover of L'Officiel Homme. Five campaigns on the stands at once (Bally, Trussardi, Etro, Guess and the new Tom Ford). With the heartthrob handsomeness of a young Anthony Delon, Jon leaps directly to the head of the modeling class. FW07: Guess with Yu Tsai SS08: Bally, Etro, Tom Ford, Guess with Yu Tsai, Trussardi F/W08: John Richmond, Jean Paul Gaultier Jeans, Tom Ford Menswear with Solve Sundsbo, Guess, Carlo Pignatelli. When not modeling, Kortajarena is into photography, independent films, and reading books by Paulo Coelho. His latest adventure is the new Brian Atwood Spring / Summer 2009 ad campaign alongside the sexy cougar Rene Russo (she’s 55!!). The ads were shot by Tony Duran.

Andrés Velencoso Segura was originally from Tossa de Mar — a small, gleaming-white Mediterranean little town with old medieval forts right on the Costa Brava of Spain, some ninety miles from Barcelona. He was born on March 11, 1978. One of Kylie Minogue’s boyfriends, don’t know if he is still since I don’t follow the gossip ;-) He was a superb athlete in his early twenties and readily admits he's nearly obsessed with soccer. He has Andalusian origin, his father is from the center of Spain, near Madrid, and his mother is from Andalucia. He is the oldest child and has two sisters. The tattoo above Andrés' heart, "Lucia", is dedicated to his mother's memory. His father has a restaurant in a castle, an old castle from the fourteenth century: when young he went to school in the winter and helped at the restaurant during the summers. He first started shooting with the really great photographers in New York. He did an editorial with Matt Albioni, and that shoot led to the Banana Republic campaign with Michael Thompson in 2002. That was his first big campaign in the U.S. and he loves those pictures. After that campaign, he really started to understand how it all works. And when he went to castings they already knew him. Calvin Klein was like: "Oh! So, he is the Banana Republic guy." Then a year later he was in Valencia shooting nine pages in French Vogue with Inez. Then he shot with Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot for the Louis Vuitton campaign with Jennifer Lopez. He shot also with Matthias Vriens for Japanese Vogue. Last September Elle Magazine gave him an award in Spain for Best Male Model. It was the first time ever that they gave this award to a man. In November 2008 in Munich he won the German GQ Model of the Year 2008. Recently he was on L’Officiel Hommes editorial by Milan Vukmirovic.
