Few Staples graduates have resumes as interesting as Derek and Drew Riker.
The ’88 alums shed careers in corporate America to become supermodels. They posed with Cindy Crawford, for the lenses of Bruce Weber and Herb Ritts, and for clients like Abercrombie & Fitch, Armani and Revlon.
The twins made a close run on “The Amazing Race.” Derek — for whom Ben Stiller named his famous character Derek Zoolander — married Miss Illinois USA.
Now they’re well-known — and very talented — photographers, specializing in fashion, beauty and celebrities.
Their most recent subject is Elisabeth Moss. The Riker brothers’ photos of “Mad Men”‘s Peggy Olson appear in this week’s edition of the New York Post‘s Page Six Magazine — including the cover.
