Model behaviour: James Michael, modelling a Dolce & Gabbana jumper, stars in the new campaign for MrPorter.com
He may not have impressed X Factor judge Gary Barlow but it seems the fashion world has become quite taken with James Michael.
The former reality TV contestant, who was sent home just one week into the live shows, stars in the new MrPorter.com campaign.
The retail site, launched in February, is the younger brother of online shopping Mecca Net-a-Porter.

Michael took time out from touring the country to show off a selection of striped jumpers for the site.
The 20-year-old singer from Liverpool is currently recording his own songs, using just a guitar and an iPad, determined to make it despite missing out on the chance to win the ITV show.
Popular boy: The singer has amassed 43,000 on Twitter
Michael was brought back to the X Factor a few weeks ago in an unexpected twist, along with some fellow contestants but lost his place to Emilia Lily.
But the singer featured in the charity single Rose Royce's 1978 hit Wishing on a Star.
Michael cuts a dashing figure but with a sultry voice and 43,000 Twitter followers, there's no need to give up the day job just yet.
