CONTENDER #5: LANE

A college student and cheerleader from Wichita, Kansas, Lane was spellbound by New York City and his glamorous photo shoot with Steven Klein. Here, he talks his love of fitness, why he wants to model, and more.

Why do you want to be a model?

LANE I think it’s really fun to do fashion and change your look. Actually, when I worked in retail a lot of people have said I should be modeling. One person who actually got me into it was my cousin’s girlfriend. She modeled here in New York.

What do you do now?

L Currently I’m studying at Wichita State University, majoring in strategic communications. I’m also on the cheer team.

What would be your ideal modeling job?

L I really love fitness and I love being active, so it would be really cool to do something fitness related. But I’m up for anything, really.

What was it like being shot by Steven Klein?

L It’s incredible. I really enjoyed it. Everything is way different compared to back home—more stylish. And there are more buildings. Everything in New York is just buildings and skyscrapers. It’s a pretty awesome experience.

What would you sacrifice to be a top male model?

L Anything! It’s like, after I graduate from WSU, if they want me to move somewhere I’ve never been before I’m okay with that.

What’s the biggest draw of the modeling life?

L I think just meeting everyone. Getting to know everyone is pretty cool
