Golden Iris Awards

Physique Model of the Year: Daniel Garofali

For the first half of 2010, Allen Walker pretty much had this award in the bag. Then Walker kinda disappeared while Daniel Garofali's career accelerated to warp speed. This year alone, Garofali starred in multiple campaigns, performed on stage with Kylie, and became a television fitness spokesman. The Aussie model/dancer also raised his U.S. profile by posing for Golden Iris-nominated photographer Rick Day and signing with a top NYC-based modeling agency. Yet he still found time to continue his involvement with the Australian club scene as a performer and model for promotional materials.

Our favorite moment of Garofali's amazing year was his gay spin on Dr. No's Honey Ryder (left). But there were dozens of other amazing images he added to his portfolio in 2010, some of which we have compiled below.
