Our second Brief Talk is with Liam Costa, one more model we except great things from. Liam was born in France, lived in Monaco and then moved to the USA to follow his dream. Costa is fluent in French, English and Spanish; he is physically and ethnically ambiguous and can be easily linked to different markets such as European, Latin or Middle eastern. Read the interview below and enjoy some of his work he was so kind to send us.
Name: Liam Costa
Lives: West Hollywood, CA, USA
From: Monte Carlo, Monaco
Tell us a little about yourself?
My name is Liam Costa. I’m a French model from Monte Carlo, Monaco. I was born in France but my parents are Portuguese. I moved to the United States about 4 years ago and started modelling after the first year in The States. I was represented by Mega Model Management in Miami when I lived in Florida. Florida was my home for roughly 2 years before I moved back to L.A. Once I returned to California I landed representation by Otto Models in Newport beach / Orange County. My modelling career is still on the rise; I’m only 5 feet 10 inches tall which is short for many agencies. They don’t want to take the risk to represent me, however, I know I will succeed!
What was the best moment in your career so far?
The best moment of my career would be the representation from Mega Models Management. It was the beginning of a dream I could finally see coming to reality. I’ve kept fighting to make this dream take shape; I even left my entire family in a different country to make sure this happens. I’m currently working on acquiring published or featured work. Hopefully I can book these jobs in the coming months.
If you could model for any company, who would it be and why?
Gucci! I love the brand, I believe my look will fit their image and represent them well since I’m a confident, sexy, and cool type of guy. I would also love to work with Calvin Klein and Diesel.
How do you spend your free time?
Like most men I spend my free time on around women, the gym, and watching soccer. I just can’t seem to get enough of these things. LOL

What is your favorite underwear style and brand?
My favorite underwear style would briefs and boxer briefs. I like my underwear fitted, to keep everything in place. The brands that interest me the most would be Calvin Klein and 2(x)ist. Their colours and variety is something I appreciate.
Looking at the future, where do you see yourself in five years from now?
I’m a true believer that anything is possible. I picture myself signed with Wilhelmina Models and at the top of my game. I would also love to own my own clothing line… which I’m currently working on.
