My inspiration for the two favorite hunks profiled today is this picture from Italian Vogue. As I have stated before, I love when favorites collide. This shot of model Stephan Hoffman and dancer Roberto Bolle, both of whom I had on my list to profile, is such a great shot!
I love the great face on Stephan Hoffman from Nous Model Management. Those amazing lips and that great head of blonde hair. Add to that his amazing bod and sexy tat and you have a model who making quite a splash. I saw photos of Stephan before, but his shots with Lope Navo for Mossimo really have gotten Stephan quite a bit of attention! Check out more at Nous Model Blog HERE:

If you read this blog with any regularity, you know I love dancers. Life to me often comes down to balance and rhythm. Dancers overall seem to have these down to a sexy science. One of the worlds most famous dancers currently is Italian dancer Roberto Bolle. Roberto has been dancing since he was 7 and currently a principal dancer with American Ballet Theatre and also holds guest artist status with The Royal Ballet and La Scala Theatre Ballet, making regular appearances with both companies.
Although known in Italy, Roberto really grabbed attention worldwide the past 2 years not just for his dance talents but for his work with renowned photographers Bruce Weber, Annie Leibowitz and Milan Vukmirovic. Roberto went after the attention deliberately to help bring attention to the world of dance, usually ignored by most of mainstream media. Roberto may have been more successful than he even intented as the attention he has received has had both a positive and negative impact on Roberto.
Roberto has also been Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF since 1999. In 2006 he visited Sudan, spending time at schools and hospitals. As of June 2007, he had raised over $655,000 for education and health projects in Sudan. Be sure to check out Roberto's official site HERE:
