The Los Angeles based KOBY STERLING takes part in our MODEL TALK talking with our Fashion Features Editor KATARINA DJORIC bout his downtime, fashion pin-ups and guilty pleasures.


Who is Koby Sterling?

Originally from Dallas, I’m a very recent transplant to Los Angeles where my day job is working as a project manager for a major bank.

I got into modeling when I went to get my haircut in Beverly Hills. My stylist sent some photos to an agent named Mark Mendez at Now What Model MGMT and it was a whirlwind from there. I had like 6 shoots within the next 8 days.

Some random facts about me: all of the closest friends I’ve had in my life are significantly older than me, so I guess you could call me an “old soul”. Also, If I had to name my strengths I’d say independence, self-discipline, and memory.

What are you up to these days besides modelling?

Aside from my day job, I’m just finding my place in L.A. and exploring a bit, making new friends, and chilling with old friends.

Did becoming a model change your life in any way?

I’ve met some really great people. I just moved to Los Angeles so it’s been great meeting so many new friends in so short a time.

What is your downtime like?

I specialize in low key. Streaming old TV shows, video games, reading, shopping, dinner parties, good conversation, getting food with friends.

Who are your fashion pin-ups?

One story that has stuck with me since I was younger is one that Vladimir Ivanov did with Bruno Staub for Hercules magazine back in 2010. Loved the high-end looks, the expression, everything. It was true class.

What’s on your current playlist?

I’m really into 80s music. Depeche Mode has a permanent place on my playlist.

Any guilty pleasures? Something that no one knows about you?

I love food. Haha, I’m one of those people who live for their next delicious meal!

Your Dream modeling Job?

Probably a Calvin Klein campaign, and to walk exclusively for them.

A quote that sums you up:

“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.” -Mark Twain
