Michael Gioia is a catwalk king, walking for heavyweights such as Dolce & Gabbana, Emporio Armani, Versace and Tom Ford. He’s also a Versace Campaign model so collectively he’s made a bright dent as a full-time model and another advocate to the powers of coconut oil. (Maybe that’s why his hair is so sleekly fresh ;oP !). Look out for him in the 2018 VMAN calendar shot by Bruce Weber.

Q&A: Age: 22Full Name: Mike GioiaBirthplace: New York CityEthnic Origin: RussianItalianNickname: MikeHow were you scouted?: My current manager (Mike Stallings) first saw me when I was 16 walking in Soho, NYC. He stopped me and asked if I was interested in being a model. I wasn’t at the time, he gave me his card but we didn’t contact each other afterwards. Two years later I was walking in Times Square, Mike recognized me and stopped me again! At that point I thought it was meant to be, and agreed to give it a shot.What’s your best feature?: Eyes.Top 3 beauty/grooming products: Coconut Oil, Kiehl’s Lip BalmYour favourite fragrance: There was this Armani fragrance out when I was younger. Used to be in this sleek, matte grey tube, can’t remember the name but definitely that one. Sadly I can’t find it in stores anymore.What’s been your most lavish purchase?: It was a trip. My Russian bratva and I went on a 9-day trip to Ibiza the first week of August a few summers back.What are your Hobbies?: Playing football, basketball, baseball, and billiards. I also really enjoy reading and traveling.What is your Fitness Regime?: Hot yoga or HIIT training in the mornings. Lifting, boxing or cycling classes in the evenings.What was the last movie you watched?: Any Given Sunday.What was the last track you listened to on your iPod?: Nothing Lasts Forever, NAS.What is your biggest fear?: Not living up to my potential.What is your dream country to visit?: Been to Italy, but not the south. Naples and Sicily are places I’d really like to visit next.If you were not modelling, what would you be doing?: Probably would be in class this very moment.If you got to relive one day in your modelling career it would be…?: It would be my first Versace campaign. It was an amazing experience that I’ll never forget!If you could swap lives with a celebrity who would it be?: Is Putin a celebrity?! I’m curious to see how life is in his shoes and the way he perceives the world.How would you describe happiness?: Happiness is knowing yourself in and out, the good and the bad, and loving yourself regardless. Happiness is also being able to share the experiences and real moments of the world with people you love.Who has been the most influential person in your modelling career to date?: Myself 5 years ago, last year, last month, or even yesterday. I’ve learned a lot through my own mistakes and respect the journey I’ve partaken in. I’m my own influencer.If you could be on the cover of any magazine, it would be?: GQ I’ve been on the back but not the front just yet 😉What’s the funniest thing that has happened to you on a shoot?: I was shooting for Sak’s 5th Avenue and there was this rickety-old stool on set. In the back of everyone’s head I think we all knew that it was going to break under someone, that someone happened to be me.What was the last thing to make you cry?: Men cry?? :pWhat’s your favourite fashion city and why?: Paris. The architecture, the atmosphere, and the little pieces of dark chocolate all cafes give you with your coffee. Also the Jazz scene there is fire.Who are your idols?: I think Idol is a very strong word; I have plenty of people I respect and look up too. Besides my parents, I’d say Jim Carrey.What would you do if you found out the world was ending in 24hrs?: I’d hang out with my little brother and sister and do the most silly, fun things imaginable.One word to describe yourself: Tenacious.How much money would you need to shave your hair off?: not much.
