Model Leon Dame, 20, strutted down the catwalk like no one has strutted before, powerfully putting one foot in front of the other and stomping down the runway, while keeping an intense, steely glare intact. 

His walk, paired with his belted top, white shorts, knee-high boots and cadet hat, quickly took the internet by storm. In one video of his walk, it appears he even got a smile out of Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour as he passed by her. 

Many praised the young German model, who has appeared in campaigns for Jil Sander, Fay and Solid Homme, for his distinctive swagger.

Actor and “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Lisa Rinna described Leon as her “spirit animal,” and fashion designer and singer Rihanna followed him on Instagram. 

Perhaps the highest praise came from Tim Blanks, editor-at-large of the fashion site The Business of Fashion.
