Right now, all you need to know is that he is currently the biggest male model on the planet.

Do you like your name?

I love my name. I didn’t used to when I was a kid. People called me Lucky Charms, after the breakfast cereal.

What do you most dislike about your appearance?

That’s a hard question. I never used to like how big my hands were because I hadn’t grown into them yet. I also didn’t like being so tall [6ft 2.5in]. My smile’s kind of funky, I guess.

What is the secret to a good catwalk?

Walking with confidence – like you have places to go. That’s how I do it. If I think about it, I walk really weird.

Who is on your recent calls list?

My mom, dad, sisters, agent Mimi, my three best friends [Duke, Spencer and James, who are all still in high school] and my cousin Canyon.

Are you a protective brother to your sisters, Pyper, 18, Daisy, 20, and Starlie, 22?

Very. Well, in the right way. When I was 12, there was a kid a couple of grades older than me who was picking on my sisters. No matter how big they were, I would defend them.

Have you seen Zoolander?

It’s one of my favourites. It’s good to make fun of yourself.

What has been your most ‘fashion’moment?

I think just all of it, dude. Walking fashion shows at 16 and 17, or doing a huge shoot for Tom Ford.

Is there more to life than just being ‘really ridiculously good-looking’?

Yeah, there’s way more to life. I mean, I might be fat and ugly in seven years. Luckily, I have a fast metabolism.
