With an Instagram profile that attracts 30,000 loyal followers, Catry Lee, our #HisStyleSnaps, checks all the boxes. A dancer/model from Hong Kong, his social media feed is a window into his dancing and modelling career, his obsession with fashion (especially shoes and bags!), as well as his pets: a couple of adorable French Bulldogs, Brooklyn and Sparta. Of course, his super ripped body hasn’t gone unnoticed either.
Want a body like his? Be prepared to work out for 6 hours everyday – well, at least that’s what he does! Besides his spartan workout regime, we also spoke to him about what inspires his style, and what he thinks makes a man sexy.
HIS STYLE DIARY: Tell me a bit about yourself and how you got into dancing and modelling. (I see you performing together with some superstars – that’s awesome!)
CATRY LEE: I started dancing at the age of 18, learning the techniques of basic jazz. I then went on to study other dance genres when I started to work with Hong Kong celebrities, performing alongside them in concerts. My modeling career began with TV commercials, billboards around Metro stations and mainly in prints on fashion magazines. As part of my modelling career, I stayed in Taiwan for half a year concentrating on men’s fashion magazines and TV commercials.
CL: The finals on the TV dance competition I took part in where I came in as 2nd runner-up .
HSD: Is there any superstar you would die to perform with?
CL: I don’t have a specific style per se. I like to adapt to different themes, especially on stage when they require me to adopt different types of performances. I’m not exactly very tall, standing at 175cm, so I feel it’s important to understand proportions well and present the best side of yourself.
CL: Eugene Tong, the styling director of Details, and James Dean, inspire me the most. I like how they dress casually and comfortably yet remaining stylish even when they are not in the spotlight.
HSD: In your opinion, what makes a men sexy?
CL: Someone who’s sexy maintains a healthy lifestyle and keeps himself looking sharp and clean without appearing haggard.
HSD: Describe the most beloved bag you own, and tell us why you love it so much.
HSD: What are some of the fashion brands that you wear?
CL: Shoes, watches and bags are important for me. I love Saint Laurent shoes and Nike sneakers. I’m quite easy when it comes to clothes. Topman, H&M or Zara are brands I’ll pick for that.
HSD: Androgyny is one of the major trends on the runway. What’s your say on that?
HSD: You are really fit! What is your fitness regime like?
HSD: What’s your grooming regime like, in the morning and at night?
CL: It’s fairly easy to do my hair given I have natural curls. I’m a pretty impatient person so I won’t be able to take sitting down for hours in a hair salon for treatment. Maybe that’s why I chose dancing since I can never have an office job that sits down at the desk for the whole day 🙂
