Chileno de 1,95 m triunfa como modelo XL en Europa: fotos e historia de Cristian Vargas (04/01/2017)

Cuando se habla de modelos de tallas grandes, la cabeza asocia esas palabras a mujeres, como Ashley Graham o Robyn Lawley, que vienen con sus curvas a oponerse a las muchachas estilo Victoria’s Secret. Pero el mercado de modelos XL también se está abriendo para los hombres, porque, al final, ellos tampoco responden a un único estereotipo.

Y dentro de este reducido grupo de hombres que modelan tallas grandes, se destaca el chileno cristian Vargas, conocido en Europa como cristian Paris.



Entrevistado por LUN, cristian contó que fue jugador de básquet durante la etapa escolar y a los 18 años debió elegir entre una universidad que lo becara en Chile o probar suerte en el exterior. Así fue como optó por hacer las maletas y desembarcar en Carolina del Norte, Estados Unidos. Su recorrido siguió por Holanda y finalmente se estableció en Madrid, donde su sueño deportivo se vio trunco en 2012 a causa de una lesión.

Al dejar el básquet, su vida cambió por completo sin encontrar rumbo: “No me lo podía creer. Lo primero que me vino fue el llanto, no sabía qué estaba pasando por mi cuerpo. Luego un bajón terrible: me puse a beber y a comer y terminé en el psicólogo. Llegué a pesar 134 kilos. Nunca había estado tan gordo”.

Vargas comenta que encontró trabajo como vendedor de cerveza en festivales de música, donde, en 2014, su destino volvió a dar un giro: “Se me acerca un agente de modelos de Mad Models. Me preguntó si sabía algo de los modelos de tallas grandes. Le dije que no. Me dio una tarjeta y fui a su agencia. Me sacó fotos, me tomó las medidas y a la semana siguiente estaba en el Corte Inglés y me convertí en la imagen de la empresa y de sus propias marcas”.



Por ahora, su carrera seguirá en Europa, ya que según ha dicho a LUN, ha enviado sin éxito su postulación a agencias de modelos chilenas: “Ninguna novedad. De las cuatro, solo una me respondió y fue con un ‘te llamaremos’”.

Asentado en Madrid, cristian mide 1,95 m y actualmente pesa 116 kilos, entrena tres veces por semana y confiesa que le apasiona andar en bicicleta. El guapo chileno de 28 años es clara muestra de que la belleza masculina no se reduce a unos músculos de hierro y da testimonio de ello: “Yo, al ser grande, tener mi pancita y mi curvita, represento a un sector de la sociedad que es distinto: conmigo se sienten bien y se identifican, más que con el chico rubio de abdominales”.
