Ultra style; yet verité. A trip. From the catwalks of Milan to Stony Plain, Alberta, meet the men who want to be cover boys.

Milan, New York, Paris – wherever the fashion world calls, our guys are there. According to fashion insiders, Canadian men are in the demand. From Saks to Versace to Diesel, our boys are showing up in international billboard land. Their pictures even end up larger than life on their own small hometown streets. Pretty Boys is the real deal on male modeling.

The aspiring models have to travel, wait, pose for the cameras and pack up again in search of a career that sometimes pays well, but often doesn’t. Those who stick it out, however, end up with a world education like no other and fringe benefits most guys can only dream of. Edwin is trying hard to get noticed as he enters model search contests. He’d rather be paid big bucks for being the center of attention than getting sweaty on a construction site. Rainer is doing well in New York City, and still marvels at his unusual luck for a Canadian small town boy. One who now has a taste for very nice clothes.

But the real trip is with up and coming Vancouver model Kelly Kreye as he relentlessly flogs his face in the fashion houses of Milan. It’s a world where you can earn $5,000 US a day, or return home, penniless, with a taste for something just out of reach.

Pretty Boys is an hour-long insider’s tour, complete with front row seats, backstage passes and some very lovely men to take us there.
