Brief Encounters: Andre Ziehe

BRIEF ENCOUNTERS: ANDRE ZIEHE -- Suddenly, he's everywhere: magazines, billboards, bus stop shelter ads.  And he's making motorists across America slow down to take a second --or third -- look at his boyish/mannish face and figure cloaked only in those tight, hot 2(x)ist briefs.  Andre Ziehe is the kind of guy that dreams (and fantasies) are made of.  (Did you know that he is the bare-chested hunk holding Lady Gaga in the photo for the "Alejandro" single??) So it was no wonder that when this native Brazilian made his modeling industry debut at age 21 (he's now 26) in Vogue Hommes International magazine, that he was quickly snapped up for international fashion campaigns and runway gigs for Bottega Veneta, Louis Vuitton, Benetton and Dsquared2 -- moving on to Versace, Valentino, Armani and Dolce & Gabbana (as seen in the D&G show above).  Checking in at 6-foot-2 and with eyes of green, Ziehe certainly has our attention.  His new street-wise fame as the official model for the new collections  of 2(x)ist Sport and Resort wear may very well propel him into the next strata of modeling stardom --and we at Studio of Style are wishing Andre just that.  He's pumped up -- and so are we!
