Male Model of the Month for May 2024


Leon Dame is a German model signed to the Modeling agencies DNA Models in New York and Viva Model Management in Paris and London. He is known for having an eccentric runway walk that led him to go viral on social media and has garnered him a large following. He is also known for his unique, gender-ambiguous style. This Model of the Year Nominee has walked for high-end designers Maison Margiela and Michael Kors amongst others. Leon Dame was born on March 12, 1998, in Berlin, Germany. He studied theater theory and politics at  Freie University in Berlin. 

The reason I chose Cameron Dallas as the August 2020 Male Model of the Month was because he was a name and face I grew up with. He was always someone who could get a laugh and smile from his viewers and he is the perfect example of a well-rounded person. Just because he has accomplished so much doesn’t mean he has stopped attempting new things and paths. I find it refreshing that he is so young and hasn’t let fame overcome him. He also made a Broadway debut which has always been a pipe dream of mine and again, goes to show his versatility and passion to go out of his comfort zone and test his limits.
