Segura was flown over to New York and unable to speak any English; but that didn’t matter much, because soon after arriving in New York his good looks caught the eye of noted photographers including Michael Thompson and Francois Nars. Since then, Segura has been hitting the jackpot landing on many fashion magazine covers such as, L’Officiel Hommes, Hercules, Arena Homme, and international volumes of Elle, Vanity Fair, and L’Officiel Hommes. What probably put him ahead of the pack was his famous Louis Vuitton campaign with Jennifer Lopez in 2003. He has since booked advertising campaigns with companies such as Chanel, Jean Paul Gaultier, Yves Saint Laurent, H&M, and has worked with photographers Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, Karl Lagerfeld and Terry Richardson, just to name a few. Interests are soccer and darts.
