The 90s was a magical era. Ask any 90s kid and they will confirm. There was something about that time that made everything look grand and majestic. Naturally, pop culture was purely aspirational. Fashion was no different and we had Male Supermodels who made us want to basically just be like them. They were incredibly charismatic, fit, and most importantly, ‘extraordinary’ in the truest sense of the word. Here, we have compiled a list of 8 of them. Take a look and reminisce!
1. Milind Soman
Ever since the world saw a young Milind Soman in Alisha Chinai’s chartbuster music video ‘Made in India’, he has been an icon. That lean, fit frame along with the God-like features made sure that Milind was pretty much the benchmark for perfection about how an ‘ideal man’ should look like. Every model aspired to be him, and rightfully so. He’s crossed 50 now, but even now gives 20-year-olds a run for their money when it comes to fitness.
2. Dino More
Dino Morea, with his sculpted physique and charming face was the dream man for every girl in the 90s. His popularity was almost unattainable, and the thing that made it even more effective was his nonchalance towards that. At 42, nothing has changed, and he is as fit as he always was. It’s unexplainable, tbh.
3. Zulfi Syed
A regular face in popular music videos and advertisements, Zulfi Syed had that royal edge to him that you’re just born with. He was one of the most popular models in the country. Every kid would look up to him, admire him, or fancy him. And why not?
4. Arjun Rampal
Before he became a household Bollywood name, Arjun Rampal was one of the top models of the country. His long locks and super sharp jawline broke many a hearts.
5. John Abraham
John is a superstar today, but he also started off his journey as a model with this group right here. Good acting skills, humility, dedication, and an absolute cracker of a physique helped him become one of Bollywood’s biggest self-made names.
6. Marc Robinson
Marc was an extremely handsome model who was popular in his own right, but an extremely controversial condom advertisement with Pooja Bedi transformed him into a household name overnight.
7. Jas Arora
Popular as the ‘Gur naal isqh mitha’ guy, Jas was perhaps the ‘hottest property’ to be cast in music videos, and for good reason. The ladies adored his guy next door charm, which he effortlessly multiplied with his dimples.
8. Aryan Vaid
Aryan Vaid was one of the fittest models the 90s had to offer. Every adolescent kid used to aspire those abs and that lean frame. He was one of the most photogenic models during that time.
