Elite Model Management‘s celebrity division is really booming, and their latest recruit is even more swoon-worthy than we had hoped. Introducing Aaron Ramsey.
Aaron is an Arsenal and Wales footballer and has signed a killer contract alongside other jaw-dropping beauties such as Rose Byrne and Lianne La Havas. If you’re not a football fan, Ramsey is a 23-year-old midfielder and is known for his talent on the field, but also for a leg-break, bad enough to make anyone squirm, that had him off the field for 9 months in 2010.
“I was approached by Elite and it was perfect timing – and a great opportunity for me, as I had been thinking about doing some other things outside of my football career,” Ramsey said. “Obviously football is my main focus and always will be; I would never jeopardise that for anything. So I will have to manage my time well so that I can also take advantage of all the amazing opportunities that Elite can offer me.”
Ramsay isn’t afraid to aim for the stars, and working with one of the best menswear designers around is as exciting to him as it is to us. Although raunchy campaigns are off the table for now, we’re hoping he will reconsider.
“I’d love to work with Tom Ford, his label is a real favourite of mine,” he told Vogue. “At this moment in time I wouldn’t want to do any shoots with my kit off… I don’t think my fiancee would be too happy about that! I still have to get used to pulling poses for the camera – it doesn’t come naturally to me – I feel lost without a football close by!”
