Male Print-Model Kordell Beckham Makes Runway Debut at the Black Heritage Celebration in Dallas, Texas
(June 14, 2022) - "I was nervous at first," said model Kordell
Beckham about his runway debut at the Black Heritage Celebration fashion show, produced
by Willie Johnson (J3 Productions), recently at the Arboretum in Dallas. "I got comfortable...on the runway all eyes
are on you."
Kordell, whose brother is Super Bowl Champion Odell Beckham, Jr., is also a student at Tyler
Junior College as an Arts major. Taking the advice of people around him, he dived into the modeling industry and has not looked
"Modeling is me and I'm good at it," he said when I asked. "They'd say, ‘You look good...you
should get into modeling, you got the look.' I hear that all the time...so I thought about it. This is the direction I want
to go. I would like to get into acting IF I had the opportunity."
I see nothing but big things from Beckham,
not only because of his looks, but his intelligence shines through when he talks. He is not just another handsome face. Not
only that, but it has been a long time since America has had a black male supermodel. So the field is wide open.
When I asked about the difference in his work as a print model and his runway debut the 20 year-old said, "(Runway)
It's a lot more people...a crowd. That's different than print modeling where it is you and the photographer and designer."
He continued about his experience on the Black Heritage Celebration fashion runway, "It was fun. I was better
the second time. The music is playing in the background. They said we couldn't smile and we had to walk at a certain pace...you
strike a pose...and don't stay too long."
Houston, Texas native Kordell Beckham has modeled for the major
campaigns of Calvin Klein, GAP, Old Navy, Nike, Adidas, Valabases, Holister, H&M and Zara for Men.
