Ali Kavoussi, Modeling agent and business executive, with his boyfriend Negrobell
He may be known as the man who helped make Stella Maxwell and Irina Shayk famous, but Iranian-born Ali Kavoussi teems with humility. There’s a sense of compassion and simple human decency in his soft-spoken voice. Those are the qualities that color how the managing partner of The Lions Talent Management views the models who work with him. They’re not just clients. They’re also friends and family.
