If you imagine life as a male model as being first class travel and hanging out at fashion shows - you're absolutely right, but in our latest video - Swide also discovers the dark side.
Thanks to Swide reader Cora Paradiso, Swide delved a bit deeper into what life is really like for a male model. Clichès aside - it's not all high jinks.
Our friend on the skateboard however certainly seems to be enjoying the ride...
Watch our video above - to spot the moment our skateboarding model (we do hope he has good insurance) skates past.
Backstage at a catwalk show - a bit like the school playground, only with better looking people.
Despite what you may think - the majority of models said hanging out with their friends was one of the advantages of being a model. Where we wonder were the "hot women, fast cars type lines...?"
A waiting game.
