The Wow Factor: As the face of Polo by Ralph Lauren, Barrett also has campaigns for Abercrombie & Fitch and Pepe Jeans under his belt. The model was recently featured as Rihannaâ€™s love interest in her "Man Down" music video.
The Inspiration: â€œI became a model after my brotherâ€™s girlfriend asked me to accompany her to an audition at the Pulse agency in Kingston,â€ Barrett says. â€œI was 18 years old and my response at the time was â€˜Are you crazy?â€™ I went along and I was introduced to Kingsley Cooper. Thatâ€™s where everything started.â€
The Advice: â€œIf you want to be a model the blatant truth is you have to be extremely strong,â€ Barrett advises. â€œStay true to yourself. If you like it, go for it fearlessly. Only look forward, never look back.â€
