Most artists are used to posing for the camera to nail some sweet promo shots for their band. However, some are striking a pose outside of the scene, whether on the high fashion runway or a commercial ad campaign. Head below to see just a few musicians’ best model moments.

Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz first ventured into fashion with his own clothing line, Clandestine Industries, and has starred in an ad campaign for its collaboration with DKNY Jeans as well as a feature for Gap. Most recently, however, Wentz hit the runway for Philipp Plein’s show at New York Fashion Week alongside viral mugshot owner Jeremy Meeks, model and daughter of Lionel Richie, Sophia Richie, and rappers Fetty Wap and Desiigner.

MACHINE GUN KELLY

 

 

Current AP cover star Machine Gun Kelly might have just closed out John Varvatos’ New York Fashion Week show, but it’s not the first time the Wilhelmina Models-signed rapper has hit the runway. Last year, MGK also walked in Joshua Kane’s London Fashion Week show and appeared in a David Bowie-inspired shoot for L'Uomo Vogue.

GREEN DAY

Green Day collectively starred in an ad campaign for John Varvatos’ spring/summer 2012 collection, adding their rock edge to a construction site-inspired shoot.

MARILYN MANSON

Marilyn Manson rocked a Saint Laurent campaign in 2013 (which also featured Courtney Love and Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon) and appeared in a star-studded Marc Jacobs ad in 2016 alongside Love, Missy Elliott, St. Vincent and several other notable faces.

TYSON RITTER

As part of Ford Models, All-American Rejects frontman Tyson Ritter has quite a hefty portfolio. The vocalist has joined Adriana Lima on a Romeo And Juliet set for Harper’s Bazaar, shot for Hugo Boss and walked in a ’40s inspired show for John Bartlett during Olympus Fashion Week—just to name a few.

METALLICA

Metallica became the face of a couture Italian-based suit company Brioni last summer. The ad campaign featured group shots of the band as well as some solo ones of each member looking quite dapper.

ANDY BIERSACK

 

 

As a signee of IMG Models, Andy Biersack appeared in a spread for last January’s issue of Vogue Italia complete with a vintage theme. The vocalist was featured via a glamour shot as well as posed with a fellow model.

HAYLEY WILLIAMS

Back in 2013, Paramore frontwoman Hayley Williams partnered up with MAC Cosmetics for a line in her signature orange hue, and of course the vocalist was featured in each product for an ad campaign flaunting the new looks.

JARED LETO

30 Seconds To Mars frontman and Academy Award winner Jared Leto starred in a Gucci ad campaign for their perfume Guilty. The ad put Leto’s silent acting skills to the test for a romanticized setting full of fashionable moments and intrigue.
