Caribbean famed model house Pulse, gave the world supermodels in the form of Jaunel McKenzie, Jeneil Williams, Gayle McDonald, Sedene Blake and many other female models but one of their most successful models is the hunk Oraine Barrett!
You may know him as Ralph Lauren’s elegant and sophisticated Polo supermodel or lately as the rugged male lead in Rihanna’s latest video “Man Down.” The sexy man with those luscious lips and that scar on his left side of his face that only adds character to his already refined and defined look….sigh!
Back to the story….the St. Elizabeth, Jamaican native was a winner of the prestigious Pulse Caribbean Model Search and has indeed made an indelible impact on fashion in all the major markets. He has appeared on many fashion publications including Italian Vogue, Japanese Vogue, Interview, Arena Homme, and i-D; modeled for designers Baby Phat, Ralph Lauren, John Bartlett, Nautica, Michael Bastion, June Ambrose, and Gilded Age and some of his editorial campaigns include Lord & Taylor, Liz Claiborne, John Bartlett, Pepe Jeans, Abercrombie & Fitch, Phat Farm, Baby Phat, Target and Phat Premium.
The handsome model (yes I can’t help it) will be making an appearance at Caribbean Fashionweek (CFW) 2011.
Apart from the Caribbean’s best designers, international stylists and celebrities, CFW 2011 will present Jamaica Night on June 10 with Mavado and Tanya Stephens; Caribbean Night on Saturday, June 11 with Machel Montano and David Rudder, backed by Fab Five; and International Night on Sunday, June 12 with JOE and Beenie Man. Other acts will be announced.
It’s gonna be a sexy weekend in JAMROCK!
