Supermodel and actor Alton Mason takes the pages of GQ Magazine‘s September 2023 Hype edition lensed by fashion photographer Jason Nocito. For the feature, the 25-year-old supermodel engages in a candid conversation with fashion journalist Samuel Hine. Mason talks about his meteoric ascent within fashion industry, inspirations, and future plans.


On his future aspirations

I didn’t know I would reach these heights in fashion. So I really don’t have any expectations. I’m just going to show up. I’m going to experiment […] I’m going to be willing to try new things, and we’ll just see where it takes me. I really can’t wait to creative direct and have my own fashion line. I want a house.

On drawing inspiration from Naomi Campbell

For me, the power and the presence and the aura came from women. I studied Naomi Campbell and would apply that to my walk. I would hear, ‘Oh, your walk is good, but your hips are too feminine.’

On getting his big break in modeling

That Yeezy show (In 2016) was definitely a launching pad, but I still went home pretty broke. But I got a taste of what this could be, if you commit and keep going through these castings.
