Evolution: Máximo Morrone

Valentino Spring/Summer 1991

* He was born in Mendoza, Argentina in 1970
* He started to work in a bank in Buenos Aires and at the same time he studied agronomy but got bored very soon.
* In 1990 Máximo traveled to L.A to study English, Omar (the owner of Omar's Men models) saw him walking on the beach and invited to be a model, he thought that it was joke but it wasn't.
* All changed when Omar introuduced Máximo to Steven Meisel, the next week he was doing Valentino and the D&G campaign with Linda Evangelista.
* 1991: a big Gianni Versace Campaign by Bruce Weber
* Fall-Winter Gianni Versace 1994 by Richard Avedon.
* more campaigns: Chanel 19, Curreges and Strelli.

Thanks for bringing light to this guy. I was a teen when those D&G ads with Linda Evangelista came out. They were hot, so sexy!
