The beautiful Alaskan: Ambrose Olsen had a great career spanning from 2002 in NY to its end in 2010, when he was found after he committed suicide in the same city which gave him his fame. He was 24 years old when his body was found hanging by one of his colleagues.
Throughout his great career he shot many editorials and campaigns with companies such as YSL, Louis Vuitton, Dior and Armani. It’s a shame to see such a great looking guy’s life just end like this.

Beck used to have a job in an Essex chip shop until he got spotted by scout Cesar Perin, in a Cambridge bookshop whilst with friends. He went from earning around £6 per hour, to having an exclusive contract with Prada.
It was a case of early bird catches the worm due to the fact that so many clients were after him. Aged 17 at the time, he was in a similar situation to that of British supermodel/celebrity Kate Moss.
Having already appeared for YSL, Dior, Louis Vuitton and Vogue, he has the foundations surrounding him that enable him to be one of the best new faces of the year for Great Britain.
Keep an eye out for this all-English star-to-be in the next couple of seasons - he is definitely reaching for the stars.

Nicon was born in Montpellier, France in 1988 to French parents; he was raised in this beautiful area and was set to become one of the models of the ‘noughties’ due to his charming face and boy-like features.
He was the face of Burberry which became the highlight in his short lived career. Alongside this job, he also modelled for Louis Vuitton, Yves Saint Laurent, Hugo Boss & Jean Paul Gaultier amongst many other famous lines.
Despite his reputation as an all round model for a variety of the best names of the decade, it seems that life had become too much for him as he was found dead just hours before he was meant to be walking in Milan Fashion week in June last year. It is reported that he leapt from the 4th floor out the window of the room in which he was.
A saddening post but, one that definitely needed to be covered to show that the fashion world isn’t all glamour, fame and cocaine. There are real people beneath the clothes that we love to admire.
