He has been a face of Givenchy and Tom Ford and walked exclusively for Chanel and Armani. He has shot with Mario Testino, Mert & Marcus, Karl Lagerfeld, Bruce Weber and Steven Klein. His controversial Vogue Hommes cover drew international attention. He is one of Australia’s most successful fashion exports and at just 28, Jarrod Scott has already secured the kind of stratospheric career highs most models dream of.
But off the runway and away from the camera, he remains a study in contradictions. Planning a career as a professional sportsman, he initially resisted the call of the fashion industry, then attacked it with all the drive and discipline of a high performance athlete, garnering in the process, a reputation as a clean living, intensely focused professional.
He is unafraid of pushing creative boundaries and using his extraordinary physique in the pursuit of art. Yet in person, he is notoriously enigmatic and self-effacing, with a dry wit that has wrong-footed more than one journalist unused to Australian humour.
He works haute and high-street, Calvin Klein and Hugo Boss to H&M and Zara. And without purposefully curating a social media audience, he has built a 50,000-strong Instagram following, using his feed to showcase his many passions - motor-racing, street-cycling, exotic fish-keeping and his modeling work for world-leading brands.
Named GQ’s Man of Style, Jarrod Scott manages to be both industry fixture, and a name still on the rise.
