Jimmy Page Lands Modeling Gig for John Varvatos Ad Campaign
By: Zooby Qizilbash

You’ve traveled the world and created Rock & Roll music that will stand the test of time, you’ve performed for Kings, Queens and heads of state and you’ve just been honored at the Kennedy Center. What do you do next? How about take up modeling?

Yep. Music legend Jimmy Page is now a model. He is featured in the new John Varvatos ad campaign with Gary Clark Jr. who many see as one of Rock & Blues up and coming big stars.

The images and short film feature the two dressed in various items from the Varvatos line. The print ad is a great black and white portrait and the accompanying video is just plain awesome. It features Clark Jr. jamming and Page traveling to the photo shoot at the Rivoli Ballroom in London.  

According to, the decision to choose Page was an easy one for designer John Varvatos. 

“Jimmy Page has been a music and fashion icon of mine since 1970. He has been a major influence and I am honored to call Jimmy a friend,” Varvatos said.

This isn’t the first time that John Varvatos has featured musicians in his ad campaigns; past collaborators include artists such as Green Day, Joe Perry of Aerosmith, Alice Cooper and Iggy Pop. That’s quite the list!
