As one of the best male supermodels in the world, Jordan Barrett received a $ 100k check for Justin Cassin's Mercedes-Benz Australian Fashion Week show in May.
But the Australian trick claims that modeling is far from the world of a man.
Speaking to The Courier-Mail on Friday, the 22-year-old said: "It's a kind of one of the only industries where women are paid more than men."
"It's basically a women's industry": Australian supermodel Jordan Barrett talks about gender pay disparity in modeling after she received $ 100,000 for a parade
The "bad boy" of the fashion came to say that he believed that the wage disparity was "good and fair".
Jordan, who is a native of Byron Bay, explained his position: "The sales of male and female products are completely different, it is so obvious and fair that women earn more money modeling."
"It's basically a women's industry, more women buy makeup, hair products and clothes than men, it's just that, boys do not usually buy tons of hair products, girls buy more clothes than boys. ;
"It's a good thing": Jordan said he fully supported and welcomed the fact that women were paid more in the industry
"It's so obvious and fair that women earn more money modeling": the male model said that the gender wage gap made sense because women had higher sales and demand
He also told Vogue UK: "I've done more jobs with women or just with other guys actually … I think I book more shows in the weeks of women's fashion, in fact."
Jordan was discovered at age 14 by a model explorer who works for the international IMG agency.
The casual meeting took place when he was caught stealing matches at a convenience store.
Jordan told New York magazine about the incident: "I wanted to smoke a cigarette, but I could not turn it on because it apparently has to be over 18, so I decided I was going to get the matches out of the counter."
"I've done more jobs with women or just with other guys in reality": Jordan's appeal lies beyond the catwalk, having been linked to people like Hailey Baldwin, Sofia Richie, Megan Blake Irwin, Lara Stone and Sahara Rayo
Taking the modeling industry by surprise, the genetically blessed star adorned the runway of Dolce & Gabbana, Moschino and Versace at Milan Fashion Week.
