Orri Helgason





Meet Orri Helgason, scouted aged 16 at a grocery store in Reykjavík and the first Icelandic model to join The Model Wall.

Orri, who was once a weight trainer, has walked exclusively for Versace for two seasons and when he’s not sleeping, eating or modelling, can be found keeping fit!

You can expect to see a lot more of the chiselled new face in the months to come, having just finished his studies and spending time travelling Europe to build his book.

Q&A
Age: 23
Birthplace: Reykjavík, Iceland
Ethnic Origin: Icelandic
Nickname: No nickname, but many people here in London find it hard to roll the two R’s in my name, so they call me Oree ;p
How were you scouted: I was scouted in a grocery store in Reykjavík when I was 16
What’s your best feature: I’m steadfast
Your favorite fragrance: I can’t choose one but now I’m using ‘Only The Brave’ by Diesel.
What’s been your most lavish purchase?: I don’t make many lavish purchases, especially now because I’m saving money for a trip around the world!
Hobbies: Crossfit, weightlifting, skiing, cycling and I’m also very interested in everything related to fitness in general, training and dieting.
Fitness Regime: My back is injured, so for now I do special exercises in the gym about 5 times a week
What was the last movie you watched?: Gone Girl
What was the last track you listened to on your iPod?: All the pretty girls by Kaleo
Do you have any Guilty Pleasures?: I like to wear my red crocs shoes sometimes, but it’s nothing to be guilty about because I look kinda cool in them!
What is your biggest fear?: Something bad happening to people I care about.
What is your dream country to visit?: Thailand, but I’m going there next January so my dream will soon come true
If you were not modeling, what would you be doing?: Working in Reykjavík, since I’ve just finished school.
If you got to relive one day in your modeling career it would be…: I really liked my second time exclusive for Versace in Milan last June.
If you could be on the cover of any magazine, it would be: Vogue Homme or GQ.
What’s the funniest thing that has happened to you on a shoot?: I did a shoot in Iceland near the sea. The make-up artist was so mind blown by the nature that she took all her clothes off and laid down in the shallows to get pictures of herself. In the meanwhile all the tourists stood there and watched her.
What was the last thing to make you cry?: I got really emotional watching the end of the movie Pearl Harbour and maybe one or two tears rolled down my cheek.
What’s your favorite fashion city and why?: Now it is London of course!
Who are your idols?: I can’t name anyone specific, but I get inspired by different people with different professions.
One word to describe yourself: Honest
Twitter handle: I don’t have one, but my friends made a fake account using my name as a joke @ekkiorrihelga
Instagram handle: @orrihelgason
