Chris Brown is the face of Guess, and the only male model that has been featured in three consecutive campaigns in one year by Guess. His handsome face is the perfect expression that Guess was looking for in sending their messages and representing their products.

Born and raised in in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, the same place where fellow Canadian model Robert Perovich's from, Chris' modeling career began by accident. An architecture major in college, Chris had chosen his career path when a modeling agent approached him at a hotel in Seattle, Washington.

Chris Brown later joined an interview session during a talent search hosted by ProScout in Vancouver, and gained the likes of the judges instantly. Chris was soon off to Toronto having his first modeling gigs through Canadian media. His short stint in Toronto was followed by a quick relocation to New York, where he was signed on by Ford Models. And it has been an amazing career trajectory ever since.

Chris Brown's boy-next-door good looks gained the likes of many photographers, and had nailed numerous magazine fashion spreads and designer bookings including Gap, Armani Collezioni, and Perry Ellis.

The image transformation of Chris to a more rugged look has brought more life into his career in 2002. First appearing on the covers of Knneth Cole and Club Monaco, Chris finally found the "one defining moment" as a model, when Guess decided to feature him in the Spring 2002 ad campaign, and the following two seasons' campaigns.

With many thanks to Michael Lange (casting director from New York) who had known Chris since he first met him at ProScout, and made the recommendation to use Chris for the Guess shoot, Chris was able to enjoy his unforgettable experience in White Sands, New Mexico for his very first Guess gig.

Chris is very grateful for being a model and the opportunity that ProScout had given him up till this day. "I might still be back home washing cars or something," Chris says, "back home no one ever thought I'd be a model."

When he's not standing still in front of a camera lens, Chris is a man of action. Some of his favorite activities include surfing, jetskiing and riding his motorcycle and dirt bike.
