Ric Arango

Ever wonder how an ex-Supermodel spends his days? Alright all you die-hards. Check out who I spotted on the beach the other day. Uh-huh, it is...Ric Arango. Who looked amazing by the way and apparently with good reason. It seems in addition to spending his days surfing on the beach he's also an expecting father.

And for those of you who are too young to know who Ric Arango is, he's from an era when beautiful MEN stood 6'3" and dominated the world of fashion. In addition to being a Herb Ritts favorite, you can open up any of Bruce Weber's books chronicling the early days of South Beach and Gianni Versace and see plenty of Ric. He was MA-jor.

Yeah, it's time these types of guys are popular again ... Thank god David Gandy appeared & Garretts Calvin campaign appeared .. It's a step in the right direction .. Love Heidi Slimane but the Slimane/Prada/Sander etc model ideal needs to move on ... Thin is good & necessary, but at least thin with some muscle ... like all the Brazilian boys we see ...

Gregg Avedon,Derek Hebner, David Boals were all very very hot. So were sooo many men that were modeling back then. Josh Holloway, Rob Sporrer, John Francis are to be included in that bunch, they were all "Real Men" not pretty boys.

But the two "hottest" "superest"
"nicest" had to be Rick Arango & Brian Buzzini - hands down

Now there's a blast from the past. Congratulations to him. What great news. And yes, those 80/90's images are the ticket. That's Gabi Reece on the swing, right? Didn't she just have another new baby, too? Maybe its in the water...

Nope, not Gabby Reece in the swing photo. Her and Ric did some photo's together, but none of them were for big campaigns

i was ric's agent in nyc. i brought him to ny. i stayed with him at his home after his girlfriend was tragically killed in a car accident. he is a remarkable human being. i have always hoped he would find true happiness outside the ridiculous world of modeling.
he was a true specimen, both physically and as a person.
congratulations to him on expecting his first child.
hope his parents are well.
warm regards,
an old friend

Ric Arango, boy that takes me back. I was just looking at a photograph of Garrett Neff, the current face of CK jeans, looking just like Jeff Aquilon in those photos taken by Bruce Weber.

rick was a fraternity brother of mine in the late 80's at florida. we nicknamed him "flypaper" because women, as you can imagine, just stuck to him. he was always very humble in spite of the fact of his looks and enormous bank account. glad to hear he has found happiness.

I knew Ric back in the 80's and 90's. He remains truly gorgeous, both physically and spiritually. Those were the days when Miami was being regenerated in every way. Time to bring the athletic models back on the scene, no more scrawny physiques - pleeeze.
