Hillary Clinton’s nephew Tyler Clinton just signed with IMG models, in case you were curious
We know the Clintons as a political family first and foremost, but if Hillary Clinton’s pantsuits have taught us anything, it’s that great fashion sense runs in this family too.
And in related “We are 100 percent here for this” news, a Clinton — to be specific, Tyler Clinton — just signed with IMG Models and we are like, “Hi.”
Tyler is the 22-year-old son of Bill’s half-brother Roger Clinton, making him our gal Hillary’s nephew by marriage. And he is, um…really, really, ridiculously good-looking. The photos on his IMG portfolio were shot primarily by photographer Brian Jamie, and let’s just say he can rock the suit look, the shirtless look, and the casual look equally well.
Here’s a broody headshot Tyler posted yesterday and we’re all like, Christian Grey who?
That dazzling Clinton smile tho.
The Outsiders-era Matt Dillon called and he said, “This.”
If Tyler looks familiar to you, you may have seen him briefly after Hillary’s final speech at the Democratic National Convention last July, where he joined his family on stage to celebrate.
Here he is in the back, doing his best Jim Halpert impression.
Here is he hugging his aunt — and looking a little like Eddie Redmayne (from the side).
And here’s a recent pic of him with his Uncle Bill in New York, having a “boys day,” as one does. (He and Bill are very close. Last year, the former president even spoke at his nephew’s graduation from Loyola Marymount University.)
Not only is Tyler good-looking, he’s also apparently a dream to work with — at least, according to photographer Adina Doria, who told Entertainment Tonightlast year that Tyler is someone whom “Hillary and Bill love so much!”
"Working with Tyler was amazing," Doria said. "He was incredibly professional, very well-mannered, and a truly genuine person. He was friendly to everyone on set and arrived early to location."
She added, “He takes direction very well — I like to let my subjects live through the camera and direction was minimal. He’s a natural!”
Of course, Twitter is going nuts. (Not that we blame them.)
Now that we’ve established Tyler ~the model,~ we’d like to share some adorable photos of him as a little one when Bill was still in office.
Here’s a 1999 gem, where he’s being shielded from the rain by his uncle.
And if you wanted to know what kind of person Tyler is, he’s been pardoning Thanksgiving turkeys since 2000. (OK, at least one turkey.)
We are all about any field Hillary and Bill’s relatives want to dabble in, and we can’t wait to see where life takes Tyler. We’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for him in magazines and on billboards (and maybe in movies or even politics one day? Who knows!).
