Model in the Spotlight: Arthur Gosse

Arthur Gosse might be a man of few words—blame it on the language barrier, the man is from France—but he certainly has that French je ne sais quoi down pat. And he's come a long way really quickly: his first modeling gig was just last year, a Prada exclusive campaign no less. DETAILS caught up with Gosse to talk about jumping off of roofs, custom underwear, and how you will probably never, ever be as effortlessly cool as Monsieur Arthur Gosse.

Arthur Gosse might be a man of few words (blame it on the language barrier, the man is from France), but he certainly has that French je ne sais quoi down pat. And he's come a long way fast; his very first modeling gig was just last year, a Prada exclusive campaign no less. DETAILS caught up with Gosse to talk about jumping off of roofs, custom underwear, and why he never needs to workout at the gym.

Age: 23

Height: 6'2"

Hometown: Lille, France

Agency: VNY Model Management (New York), Major Paris (Paris)

How were you discovered: A friend was studying styling at my school (La Cambre, in Belgium) and asked if I could be a model for her show at the end of the year. A modeling agency found me there.

Career highlight: A Zara commercial this past spring. I got to go to Budapest!

Career lowlight: I only keep the good memories.

Do you prefer runway or photo shoot: Runway, it's more exciting.

What's your secret to walking a runway? I just walk like I am walking down the street.

The craziest thing you've ever been asked to model: I was once asked to jump off of a roof into a pool. It was a shoot for a magazine at a house outside of Paris. I asked the photographer if it would be okay to jump from the rooftop because the people living in the house told me they used to do that - so I jumped!

The one item from your wardrobe you would save in a fire: My underwear with my name on it.

If you could raid anyone's closet it'd be: James Bond.

The artist getting a lot of play on your iPod right now: Afro Cuban All Stars.

How do you stay in shape? I just have good chromosomes.

If you weren't modeling you'd be: In music, or an industrial designer.

Your best quality: My magic hands.

Your worst quality: I dream all day long.

If you could change one thing about your body, it would be: Nothing.
