“Having worked in finance for years, the opportunity to work with creative people and travel around the world is amazing.”

This dashing man has certainly come a long way from that unhappy 21-year-old, holed up in his bedroom.

And you have to admit, he seems pretty well-suited for this whole modeling gig.

Fortunately, Pugh has a good sense of humor about the whole thing. He’s not above using his face for ridiculous viral trends, like the proliferation of Christmas Tree beards.

It's that time of year ? #tb to when my face was a Christmas Tree ?

He’s been known to rock a glitter beard as well.

If this isn’t the ultimate glo-up, then I don’t know what is.

(Also, guys everywhere should take note: this proves the point that a good beard can really turn your face into a swoon-worthy situation.)
