Australian model Jethro Cave is the 32nd coolest man in the world, according to GQ. The grungy model beat out fashion names Humberto Leon (owner/director of Opening Ceremony), Yvan Rodic (The Facehunter), and Waris Ahluwalia (House of Waris designer) to be named the only male model - and the only Antipodean - to make the cut. Guess it doesn't hurt to be the son of a rockstar or a regular face on Olivier Zahm's Purple Diary. GQ's list also included style.com contributor (and favourite writer of mine) Derek Blasberg at number 31, photographer Todd Selby at number 30, tattooist Scott Campbell at number 27, pro footballer (and husband of Gisele Bundchen) Tom Brady at number 23, Lady Gaga and Hedi Slimane stylist Nicola Formichetti at number 16, French artist and bar owner Andre Saraiva at number 15, photographer Ryan McGinley at number seven and actor/Band of Outsiders muse Jason Schwartzman at number five.
Prince Harry came in at number one, narrowly beating out Robert Pattinson to take the top spot - not a bad way to garner a bit of worldwide publicity. But where was Kanye West? Lupo Elkann? Mark Ronson? Ryan Seacrest? Conan O'Brien? Shia Lebeouf? Jeremy Piven? Kevin Dillon? Olivier Zahm? If Tiger Woods can get in there at number 38, surely Johnny Drama could have been thrown a 40-something.
But my favourite entrant came in at number 43 - Christopher Mintz-Plasse. Better known as McLovin. A source of inspiration to us all.
