This week my Man Candy post is devoted to the "men like wine", they goes better with the age ;-) Actually only one of this men is older than me, the other two are younger, but they are all models than, for a reason or the other, gained a position in the Top List of Icons Men from models.com, and I'm always up for a good class of vintage wine!

Gabriel Aubry is one of those rare model icons that looms as a bonafide celebrity even as his legacy of fashion bookings marks him as one of the last of that era of male models worthy of the prefix "super". As a long running fixture of the Calvin Klein brand, Mr. Aubry still clocks in for duty to this very day. But model watchers will always remember that incredible run that spanned clients such as Hugo Boss, DKNY, Versace and Tommy Hilfiger.

Born in Montreal, Canada on August 30, 1976, Gabriel Aubry was one of nine siblings. He got his start in modeling in the 90s when a stylist in a night club approached him. Shortly after he started modeling for the likes of Tommy Hilfiger, Gianni Versace, Calvin Klein, DKNY, and Valentino to name a few. Aubry was the only male model to ever appear on the cover of Uomo Vogue while appearing in 4 different campaigns at the same time, in the same magazine.

He is signed to Wilhelmina Models in New York City and Beatrice Model agency in Milan, Italy.

Aubry is still within the realms of his booming modeling career - he opened a restaurant, Cafe Fuego, in the East Village on trendy St. Mark's Place, and is currently dating talented actress, Halle Berry, with whom he has a daughter, Nahla Ariela Aubry, born 2008.

Brad Kroenig has gotten from the modeling industry, everything that a clever and enterprising young man dreams about. Capital, real estate, an amazing client list (Hermes, Chanel, Fendi, Cavalli, Dom Perignon, Gap, Adidas, Tommy Hilfiger!) and a place in fashion history including cameos in Lagerfeld Confidential and his very own multi-volume tome of portraits. You name it, he got it. And THAT is what being an icon is about.

The mid-west doesn’t play around when it comes to handsome men; born April 23, 1979 in the heart of St. Louis, Missouri, Brad Kroenig has been nothing less than a godsend. Originally on the pursuit to make soccer a career, Kroenig’s plans soon changed after he was approached by an agent. Making his debut in 2002 with Abercrombie & Fitch, it’s been nothing but smooth sailing since then. Working alongside of Naomi Campbell that same year, Kronig has since been featured on numerous covers, editorials and campaigns. Best known as Karl Lagerfeld's muse for close to 5 years and working with Karl on his various lines, Brad has still worked with many other top designers and brands such as Roberto Cavalli, DKNY,and Gap. Besides basking in his success, Kroenig still enjoys a good game of soccer and is intrigued with real-estate. He just celebrated the birth of a healthy baby boy in 2008.

He appeared in the following ads: Karl Lagerfeld S/S 09, Dom Perignon Oenotheque S/S 09, K Karl Lagerfeld F/W 08, Fendi F/W 08, H&M S/S 08, Chanel Sport S/S 08, Fendi Palazzo. He is also in the following editorials: Day Break (Contributing Editor), Spring Scenes (V Man) and Chanel for Men (Fantastic Man).

His agencies are: New York Ford, London Models 1, Milan d'management, Hamburg Kult Agency, Paris Success, Vienna Next Company, Copenhagen 2pm.
