Top model Sassan Shokouhi is under the oppressive sun and he doesn’t mind. The 25-year-old Filipino-Iranian hunk is one of the more in-demand models in the fashion runways and catwalks of A-list designers. He is also the guy in the ubiquitous Gibi shoes billboards in the metro and in the provinces. The 6’3″-tall Sassan is also a sought-after mannequin for fashion editorials in major fashion magazines and publications.


Would you wear meggings? Male leggings? This one’s way down there – classified under Silly Men’s Fashion. It’s supposed to catch up here after the leggings for men made a splash in Japan and the rest of Europe a year ago. Now, some models here like Sassan Shokouhi [in photo] have been caught wearing the tight pants, a level above [or below] the skinny jeans of yore. Are meggings cool or not?

Which Body Type

Which body type do you prefer most on a man? Excluding the fat specimen. Do you like the guys who are at least 5’10” tall and on the “larger” side? Like Jon Hall [left], who is not extremely muscular yet fit and proportioned, not blubbery fat but heavy with muscles underneath? Or do you go for the tall and thin one? Like Sassan Shokouhi who is slender like those lean but up to snuff basketball players? I find the physical attributes of the former more appealing, if you ask me. How about you?

Sassan Sizzles

Reed-thin and in-demand model Sassan Shokouhi is our Sunday boy.  The 24-year-old cutie – born to a Filipino mother and an Iranian father – has been in most runway shows of top designers and brands in the country.  He is also a sought-after mannequin for fashion editorials in major fashion magazines and publications.  The 6’1″-tall Sassan – once featured as a hot bachelor of Cosmopolitan [Phils] magazine – appeared in a sexy music video with a woman called Gretchen and a billboard for Gibi shoes. [Update: Jiro Shirakawa grabbed the Mossimo 2009 title last night].

Mr. Big: Sassan Shokouhi

One of the 69 “hot, new bachelors” of Cosmopolitan [Phils.] magazine this year who is destined to be big is Sassan Shokouhi, a 22-year-old Filipino-Iranian model. He is the new face of Eskinol Master Facial Cleanser billboards in the city. The 6’3″-tall hunk also appeared during the Air 69 Bachelors’ Bash of the magazine – in shiny green tights, so tight you can decipher what he’s up to. Such a tease.
