According to Vogue, “If you liked 90s-era Leonardo DiCaprio, you’ll love Aussie newcomer Jordan Barrett.” In less than a year and a half of modeling, Barrett has worked with many of the fashion industry’s leading image-makers. He also managed to star opposite Gigi Hadid in a Tommy Hilfiger television commercial and appear in Fergie’s popular #MILFmoney music video alongside Kim Kardashian and Chrissy Teigen.
Barrett, ever the chameleon, simultaneously caught the attention of Bruce Weber and Steven Klein, two legendary photographers known for their equally exacting, if disparate, aesthetics. The men photographed him for Vogue Paris, Vogue Homme, and V magazines; and Vogue Italia, V Man, and Arena Homme+, respectively. Inez and Vinoodh paired him with disco-dancing supermodels Liya Kebede and Karlie Kloss for Vogue Paris, while Mert and Marcus captured him at the ultimate house party alongside Joan Smalls and Amber Valletta for W magazine.
Mario Testino enlisted Barrett for his ubiquitous “Towel Series,” as well as an issue of Vogue Italia. David Sims selected Barrett for yet another Vogue Paris editorial feature, as well as a series of Gap campaign images; Mikael Jansson also led a Gap ad featuring Barrett. Additional advertising credits include Tom Ford, Ralph Lauren, H&M by Cass Bird, and Ermanno Scervino by Peter Lindbergh.
Select covers, meanwhile, include Wonderland, Telegraph, Hercules, and Numéro Homme. Runway credits include Versace, Balmain, Moschino, Public School, and H&M, among others. Additionally, Barrett’s front-row attendance with Kate Moss at Coach during the London collections created media frenzy.
Off-duty, Barrett is intensely curious about the contemporary art market. Last spring, he was the lone subject of a MoMA PS1 large-scale portrait exhibition photographed by Collier Schorr. The duo also produced an independent art zine to complement the aforementioned photo series aptly titled @IBlameJordan in homage to his ever-growing social media nom de guerre.
