Model & DJ
Is Jack Guinness really the coolest man in Britain? Jack Guinness is part of a new wave of male models who have become personalities in their own right. He works for the biggest designers, throws legendary parties and is now parlaying his clout into the worlds of DJing, presenting and publishing.
Guinness has fronted campaigns for Ugg, Longchamp, Barbour, Brioni, L’Oréal, Nicole Farhi and Dunhill. Last year he made a film for Gucci; this January he walked for Dolce & Gabbana in Milan. He is lauded in the industry for his ants-in-your-pants charisma – the multitude of notable people in his orbit is testament to that – and he enjoys a kind of cultural fluidity reminiscent of early-noughties Dan Macmillan. To the Times, Guinness is “the very epitome of the modern man about town”. To the Evening Standard, he is one of “London’s most influential people”.
