Check out the 2012 winner of VMan and Ford Model's annual male model search—Mr. Joseph Dolce, a native of Oceanside, New York.
"Being a model allows me to show my artistic side," Dolce told VMan. "I get to step out of my comfort zone and broaden my horizons."
As for his personal style? "I really love the James Dean vibe," he said. "I was born and raised in Long Island, so I grew up on pinky rings and gel."
Check out this VMan video, below, where Dolce takes us around his Long Island neighborhood.
