Robert Konjic


Can you imagine signing up for a six-month contract that pays you enough to buy a house but involves only five days' "work" lounging around in front of a camera, followed by five months 26 days of ... lounging around. That's exactly how 24-year-old Swede Robert Konjic has spent his time when he was picked as the new "face" of Gucci menswear.

Robert is incredibly lucky, but then he is also absolutely beautiful - not hunky, or rugged, or conventionally sexy - but beautiful with his to-die-for cheekbones, mesmerising eyes and perfect skin. He has been employed under what is known in the trade as an exclusive, which means he can't work for another designer until the campaign featuring him is well established, and he is known as the Gucci boy, and nothing else.

For any model, getting an exclusive is the big break. It could mean fame, it certainly means fortune and sometimes it means celebrity. Beefcake male model Marcus Schenkenberg found fame through Versace with such a deal. Robert Konjic (pronounced Konich), however, is just happy to be the Gucci boy. It means he doesn't have to work too hard at modelling. He was flown to Milan two weeks ago to do the Gucci show but, ironically, was cancelled at the last minute. Tom Ford wanted "football hooligan" types and Robert was thought "too beautiful", which really makes him laugh. "Two years ago I was fitting engines at a Volvo factory; a year before that I was a cocktail waiter," he says.

He still can't believe he got paid "a lot of money" to take his clothes off and pose with a beautiful model for the Gucci perfume campaign (he also models sheer underwear and the mainline collection). The moment when photographer Mario Testino asked them to be intimate proved the hardest. "I was thinking, `Cow, cow, chicken, chicken', anything to put my mind off what was happening. Eventually I had to ask for time out, it was very embarrassing," he reveals.
