Cristian Grassi is one of the most famous Argentinian models in the world, but his career started by chance when a photographer discovered in his home town. He wanted to be a sports journalist or a professional rugby player but life drove him to a different destination.
Shortly after completing his studies as a sports journalist, he moved to the city of Milan and thus his international career in the fashion world began when he was 21 years old. Cristian has done the biggest editorial work a model can aspire to: GQ, Esquire, Cosmopolitan, Men’s Health, Elle, Glamor, Gentleman, Life & Style, Arena, among many others.
Grassi established himself between Europe and the USA working for major brands such as Garnier, Trident, Piz Buin, Land Rover, etc.
We still can’t forget the Armani campaign super model Cristian Grassi starred in, that is why we were thrilled to interview him at The Spectator.
He has worked for major fashion brands such as Lee, Levis, Scappino, Brantano, Fallabella, Sears, Liverpool, Palacio de Hierro, etc. Cristian has not only worked with a number of celebrities, but also with some of the biggest fashion photographers such as Ben Watts and Martín Traynord.
Cristian Grassi is a big fan of the city of Tulum, Mexico, and there, he shot the global campaign for Piz Buin with the renowned model Nina Agbdal.
His thick beard and stunning long hair made him the face of Just For Men, a brand focusing on hair and beard care. He recently did the shoot with the renowned photographer Ben Watts in New York.
The Argentinean model is also the brand ambassador of the hat brand from Tulum, Inti Spirit @intispirit, but if you want to keep up with his life and career, follow him on Instagram! @crigrasssi
