Model-turned-singer Siva Kaneswaran from the famed British boyband The Wanted will return to his modeling roots, signing a contract with top London modeling agency Next Model Management. "Next are delighted to have signed Siva worldwide and we look forward to working with him on his fashion positioning moving forward," says the agency. "Undeniably gorgeous, and with a really genuine love of fashion which stems from his history as a model.”

The tall, dark, handsome and always chic 24-year-old with killer cheekbones has been modeling age of 15 alongside his identical twin brother Kumar. "Although I am on stage a lot performing, and often on music related photo shoots with my band The Wanted, I do really miss the kind of shoots you do as a model, that really focus on fashion and the art of photography,” he gushed to the British site the Telegraph. “Fashion editorial shoots have a whole different vibe about them, so I am excited to be doing that again.”

Siva joins the likes of fellow musicians signed to Next including Rita Ora, Lana Del Rey and Iggy Azalea. You can check out this pretty boy and his cheekbones on the E! Network in a new reality television show, “The Wanted Life,” which airs this month.
