Who is the more glamorous man?
If you check out model Aristotle Polites’ Instagram page, you’ll see the handsome, swarthy model in many poses and various states of undress. His rippling abs and perfect face were made to sell high-end clothing and accessories.
As social media becomes an increasingly valid form of marketing, the page is basically his professional portfolio. He would never do anything to tarnish his reputation on this site as it helps him to get jobs, turning his passion into a career.
However, an Instagram page, featuring Aristotle’s picture and pictures of someone who is mocking his model looks, has popped up. It may serve to give his career a boost in ways he never thought of.
A Model is born
Aristotle Polites has a sister named Katina Behm. Because of her, Aristotle (Aris) is the uncle of 18-month-old fraternal twins Augie and Delphi. He’s also little Delphi’s godfather.
Aris and Katina are clearly very close. She told Huffington Post, “My brother and I get along great. We’ve always had a great younger brother/older sister relationship, lots of poking fun!”
One day, when Katina couldn’t get Augie into his button-down shirt, she realized that he looked like her brother in his fancy pictures. “The image of him with the shirt undone and his bare chest exposed made me laugh because he looked like he belonged on the cover of a romance novel,” she explained. “I took a picture and then realized I bet my brother Aris has a picture just like this on his Instagram page which is filled with modeling photos.”
Indeed her brother Aris did have a picture like that. In fact, she found a recent Calvin Klein ad that included Aris in an unbuttoned shirt.
Unable to stop at just one, Katina decided to do more side-by-side pictures of Augie and uncle Aris. She she created the Instagram account @babyandthebody to showcase her work.
She doesn’t want to make fun of her brother though. She just wants to make people laugh. “I’m so proud of him because he’s out there doing his thing and following his passion, but it’s hard not to rip on him a little bit. Some of his modeling pictures are hilarious, but he doesn’t take himself too seriously which is good because I get such a kick out of recreating them with Augie,” she said.
Augie wasn’t having the best time taking pictures at first, so Katina waited a few weeks between shoots. “The moment I propped him up against the nursery wall where a lot are taken he got all excited because he remembered that we take pictures like that sometimes,” the mom-of-two remembered.
After 44 pictures, it looks like Augie is really getting into his modeling career. The little man has posed in his diaper, in nothing but a guitar, in adorable jeans, and while playing basketball.
Their Biggest Fan
Katina and Aristotle’s 88-year-old grandmother has all of the photos emailed to her. She loves seeing every single one more than anybody else. Katina said, “She answers [the phone], ‘Is it time?!’ and races upstairs to check her email with me on the phone so we can laugh together. She always comments on how handsome Aris is but Augie always wins in her eyes. I think the love multiplies with every generation.”
Augie definitely has a long way to go before he gets into the modeling game like his uncle, but at least he’ll have more experience than anyone else. He’s already got a very impressive body of work.
