New SA model hits the big time

Jean-Luc Gino Quevauvilliers (18) is the new face of US clothing retailer Abercrombie & Fitch in their latest advertising campaign to be shot in May, barely two months after he sent a few photographs to agencies around the US. Jean-Luc was born in Pretoria and will also model in shows for Tommy Hilfiger and the Banana Republic label. He will also feature in the American Modelling Talent Reality TV Show, where he will be competing for a modelling contract. He moved to the US shortly after matriculating from Durban’s Westville Boys High last year, as part of a gap year with a Youth Work programme. He is still working part-time at a ski resort in Maine.
