Meet the New Guy: Wendell Lissimore

Photo: Imaxtree

With three covers out on stands on now, Wendell Lissimore is our latest man du jour. The Utah native started modeling in 2006, appearing in Italian Vanity Fair and doing some catalogue work here and there. But it wasn't until 2008 that he started blowing up. Suddenly he was walking for Hermès and Emanuel Ungaro, while working it out on the print side, booking a V editorial with the one and only Ms. I-don't-get-out-of-bed-for-less-than-$10,000 Linda Evangelista. This month, you can see him on the covers of Italian D with his son Phoenix, bleu, and Japan's LUSSW, each showing a different side of this hunk of man. He might be giving the original chameleon, Evangelista, a run for her money. —James Lim
