Model Citizen Gets Key to His City


This morning, Mayor Mark Matthews of Kennesaw, Georgia, awarded hometown boy and Forbes’s Most Successful Model Sean O’Pry a key to the city “honoring his achievements and thanking him for remembering his southern roots and sharing his love of Kennesaw in interviews.” What can one really do with a key to a city? By all accounts, sneak into your local skinny jeans vendor by night.

Sean did just that in a July conversation with Matthew Edelstein for Interview, explaining that, while he’s settled in to city life, he still thinks Waffle House compares pretty favorably to any of New York’s culinary offerings. However, he admitted, prior to modeling: “I thought Abercrombie & Fitch was the bee’s knees…”

And now? “The jeans are a lot skinnier than I used to wear, that’s for sure.” Don’t tell the mayor.
