Seen: Robert Gonzalez in NYC for Nasty Pig
TOP PHOTO BY VINCENT LAMBERT
One of our favorite readers hit town this month, and we finally got to meet and greet him in person! Yes, sexy Robert Gonzalez blew through NYC for a photo shoot with the Nasty Pig fashion line (he follows in the porn-star footsteps of gaydom’s latest supercouple Chris Porter and Samuel Colt). And even though he was shaved from (almost) head to toe for the occasion (drats!), he still looked better than ever. And Robert has also been busier than ever, appearing in three new photo books (Rick Day’s Pioneers; Thomas Synnamon’s Sleepless; and John Gress’s Score). He’s also featured in the All American Guys 2011 Wall Calendar (even though he’s Venezuelan!) and has a revealing spread in DNA magazine’s issue #127. A hairier version (thankfully!) of the hunky bodybuilder appears on the cover of the Winter issue of Bear magazine. And he just did his first full-frontal shoot in Dallas for another book. Whew!
Of the recent NYC fashion shoot, Robert told us that Nasty Pig CEO David Lauterstein discovered him while he was wearing the revealing duds at IML in Chicago last spring. “He loved the way I looked in their clothes,” Robert says. “I first met David through friends here in Chicago.” The Windy City is where Robert lives when he’s not flying all over the place working as a supermodel. It’s also where he started his own business as a floral designer (to the stars! Clients include Oprah Winfrey, Jennifer Hudson and Vanessa Williams). He says that he’s still happily in a relationship but only winks when we ask with whom. Well, that hot bod has to keep someone warm on a cold Chicago night!
