MILES MCMILLAN - JUGGLING BETWEEN TWO WORLDS
Miles McMillan is an American model and artist. He grew up in his hometown of La Jolla, California, but moved to New York to study at NYU Steinhardt, where he earned a Bachelor's degree in Fine Arts. During the summer of his first year at college, a photographer noticed him and offered him a photo shoot for Urban Outfitters. McMillan did not have an agent at the time and agreed, but with a higher pay arrangement. With these pictures, he started his career.
In 2010, he made his debut on the catwalk for John Varvatos in Milan, Italy. He quickly gained recognition for his striking look with long hair that set him apart from other models. Over the years, he has been spotted with different hairstyles, but long hair remains his trademark. His career took off in 2012 when he was chosen for Prada's menswear campaign for fall/winter 2012. He went on to appear in shows for Alexander McQueen, Dior and Givenchy. He worked with photographers Mert and Marcus for Love magazine, Jack Pearson for Another Man and Purple, Steven Meisel for Vogue Italia and Patrick Demarchelier for Vogue.
In addition to being a model, McMillan is also an artist whose work has been shown in galleries in New York and Los Angeles. His work can be described as abstract and colorful, often featuring geometric shapes. The creator says that he prefers and enjoys painting oil paintings, but his time is limited, so he focuses on graphics.
He grew up in a good family with a sister who was nine years older than him. His father works as an engineer and his mother as a psychologist in La Jolla. As a child, he often spent summers at his grandparents' home in Hawaii. In 2020, Miles met interior designer Trace Lehnhoff, and in 2023, the couple announced their engagement on Lehnhoff 's Instagram profile. In his free time, the model likes to travel and explore new places, cook and experiment with new recipes.
