Mendes is an interesting figure in the land of gay thirst — the 20-year-old musician has expressed frustration with the numerous gay rumours that seem to stick to him like glue, yet at the same time he’s shown that he’s comfortable playing the role of ‘object of desire.’

This latest modelling credit certainly further cements his sex symbol status, and he joins CK alums like Mark Wahlberg, Travis Fimmel, Djimon Hounsou, Freddie Ljungberg, Justin Bieber, Hidetoshi Nakata, Jamie Dornan, Fernando Verdasco, Mehcad Brooks, Antonio Sabato Jr., and Kellan Lutz.

That’s not a bad club to be a member of.
