Considered one of the “boys” of Dolce & Gabanna, Adam Senn is easily one of the more recognizable faces from uncountable Dolce & Gabanna ad campaigns, right after supermodel David Gandy. But unlike Gandy who shot to superstar status after spotted by the fashion power duo, Adam Senn was already a busy model. He got his big break when he starred in Gucci’s controversial spring 2003 campaign where he pulled down model Louis Pedersen’s underwear and in the same season, he posed nude for the Gucci’s underwear campaign. From then on, Adam Senn continued to snag the most coveted campaigns including Valentino, Armani Exchange and of course, Dolce & Gabbana.
Senn’s interest in acting has also led him toward Hollywood, impressing directors and also securing a role in the movie Video Girl, which is currently showing in theatres across the US. He has also starred in such independent films as Magic City Memoirs, and Losing Sam and guest starred on Law and Order SVU. Adam ventured into television when he starred in MTV’s hit show, The City with Whitney Port.
Adam Senn was born in Paris, France on April 10, 1984. He was raised in Bridge City, a small town on the southeastern side of Texas and moved to Sugarland where he developed an interest in baseball and golf. He was discovered in a hotel lobby by Gaspard Lukali-Lacote, an agent with Re:Quest Models, after attending a model convention with his girlfriend. He was later introduced to the owner of the agency and signed a contract two days after he arrived in New York, just after finishing high school.
Adam met renowned fashion photographer, Mario Testino in one of his first casting calls, and was recruited for one of the models in a Spring/Summer Gucci campaign, and the rest was history. Since then he has been a regular on the runways of the world’s leading fashion houses, and has worked with the most renowned fashion photographers such as Mario Testino, Steven Meisel and Steven Klein.
Senn’s flawless, athletic physique and intense blue eyes have won him continued exposure, working on extensive editorial shoots for the world’s most important fashion publications, including Italian Vogue, GQ and VMan.
