Age: carlos 24, john 21
Hometown: CARLOS: Bay Area, CA. JOHN: St. Petersburg, FL
Style icon: CARLOS: Eminem, Diddy, Fred Durst. Anyone who can pull a monochromatic look. The early 2000s are still dictating a big part of my life. JOHN: My favorite movie heartthrobs from movies like Flesh, Mysterious Skin and My Own Private Idaho. Timeless trash is my default look.
Favorite designers to work for: CARLOS: One of the most fun shows I did was Rochambeau in NYC. Their clothes made sense to me, and at the end of the show, they made us squirt champagne over everyone, including the clothes. A very early-2000s-on-a-yacht music video moment. JOHN: Dean and Dan at DSQUARED2 are a lot of fun, and they liked it when I showed up with my nails painted black.
Dream modeling job: CARLOS: I think Hedi Slimane’s Dior Homme would have been cool. My own T-shirt on a billboard! JOHN: Being a prop for an iconic celebrity, or maybe art directing an editorial of my own selfies.
Wardrobe essential for 2014: CARLOS: A sweater that matches in exact color and pattern with a pair of shorts—the backup dancer look. JOHN: Gold chain or gold tooth.
