Rob Evans, born in 1988, in Oxford, United Kingdom, is British boxer turned model, most notably known for his work with "Givenchy" for the Spring 2011 season. When Evans was discovered in 2010, the last thing he was thinking about was modeling -- he would have probably laughed and shrugged off the notion -- let alone creating a sensation walking the Givenchy Spring/ Sumer 2011 Men's show in Paris. He was in Oxford, UK training at his local boxing gym maintain his amazing 6'3 physique.
Many have tried but we really haven't had a black male model stir up a buzz since the legendary Tyson Beckford. So far modeling has allowed Evans to walk in shows in Paris and in the 2011 NY fashion week had designers scrambling to include his stunning presense in their runway shows. Photographers have been breaking necks to get the opportunity to capture him in front of their lens.
Represented by Major Model Mgmt in 2011, Evans has already an impressive collection of magazine editorial and runway work. Along with "Givenchy", he has walked the runway for "Trussardi". His editorial work has been featured in "Numero Tokyo", "i-D Magazine" and "Self Service". Everything about Evans is beautiful: his face, his body, his size, and his personality is super cool. His friends describe him as very gracious and humble.
