Sardar Super Model Adorns GQ Magazine's Fashion Pages



Sardar Sundeep "Sonny" Singh Caberwal first caught the eye of the international fashion world when Kenneth Cole launched its ads in Manhattan with this SuperModel as its face.

This spring, Sonny appears in the fashion pages of the GQ (Gentleman's Quarterly) Magazine - its German edition - with several pages dedicated to him. 

Here are some of the images ...

Impressive. Let's take pride in the turban as a mark of beauty in dignity.

2: Ibadat Gill (Irvine, California, U.S.A.), March 27, 2009, 11:51 PM.

Great news. The Sikh turban has finally made it to the pages of high-end fashion! Whether he wants to be or not, Sundeep is a great role model for Sikh youth. His success is proof that a Sikh can be chic without sacrificing his/her spiritual identity and heritage. Chakk de, Sundeep Singh. Hun saadi umeed heh, teri dastaar nu GQ de front cover utteyy vekhangey!

It's pride for us Sikhs. Fashion seems to have misappropriated by the shorn and the shaven. This fashion page is one of its own kind, a milestone, and a definitive answer to the question - is there a place for turbans and beards on the fashion pages? Our Sardar supermodel has taken fashion beyond all of India's less than perfect presenters! Bravo!

4: K. Singh (New Delhi, India), March 28, 2009, 10:49 AM.

It's really cool to see a turbanned Sikh on the walk. Thanks to so many ... including Sonny and Dr. Manmohan Singh ... the turban and Sikhism are being seen more clearly on the world map. Sikhi rocks!

5: Gujender Singh (Gaithersburg, U.S.A.), March 28, 2009, 11:55 AM.

Congratulations, Sundeep Singh ji, for coming forward as a turbanned Sikh in the Fashion Industry so that Sikhs can be recognized with a turban and young generation Sikhs will look up to you as a role model.

6: Jessie Parmar (lethbridge, canada), March 31, 2009, 1:10 PM.

Wow, you rock! We are proud of you. Keep up the good work ... this is another milestone!

7: Dharamveer Singh (Mumbai, India), April 04, 2009, 10:41 AM.

Sonny Singh Caberwal te sadi jan kurban hai, saanu Sonny te inna maan hai, jina marji kar laen monne munde fashion, par puggh wale Sonny di wakhri hi shaan hai! This is not an original thought from me, guys: it is the gist of many, many SMS messages I had received. But I do want to add: Sonny, you have made us really proud. I would like all of my Sikh brothers and sisters to take pride in him (I am mentioning this, because a Sikh friend of mine immediately commented on his turban, after I told him of this fabulous news ... he said "Look at his turban ... ha!" We need to respect Sonny for his efforts and achievements. Sonny, my sincerest respect to you for your extraordinary achievements and my best wishes to you for your future. I pray that, by God's grace, you scale even greater pinnacles of success.

Congratulations, Sundeep Singh ji, for coming forward as a turbanned Sikh in the fashion industry so that Sikhs can be recognized with a turban and younger generation Sikhs will look up to you as a role model.

10: Jagpreet Singh (India), May 22, 2009, 4:12 PM.

He looks Superb ... this proves that Sikhs in beards and turbans can match any model anytime.

11: Harpreet Singh (Hitchin, Herts., U.K.), June 01, 2009, 7:48 AM.

Congratulations! Well done and a big thank you to Sonny! In India, Sikhs have often been portrayed by film/media as sincere but overweight, dopey and dowdy people. This has led to many young Sikh girls in India specifying that they would like to marry "clean shaven" Sikh boys (an oxymoron there!). Being critical of such girls is not the answer. Youngsters will only digest and respond to what is offered to them. Fantastic websites like this (I thought the SikhPark joke about property value loss was hilarious!) and fantastic Sikh individuals like Sonny have a huge and important impact on our ability as Sikhs to appeal to younger generations on an instant/ here-and-now level. The ideology of Sikhism is most important ... but initially, youngsters' interests need to be ignited and they need to see positive role models rather than what is offered by the Indian media, before they can really feel proud to be Sikhs. Thank you, Sonny, and thank you to the people who run this site. You're doing a great, great job.

12: Harjinder Singh (Delhi, India), June 05, 2009, 6:55 AM.

I too want to be a model.

13: H. Kaur (London, England), June 05, 2009, 12:16 PM.

He looks fantastic! Nice one, dude!

14: Surrinder Singh (London, England), August 02, 2009, 10:49 AM.

I think Sonny looks fabulous! A Sikh with style! I hope this inspires others to join the industry, although I'm not sure Sikh women would have the same support, which is a shame!

15: Ravneetjot Singh (Sunam, India), September 21, 2009, 1:31 AM.

Thank you for reminding us that being a Sardar is not an obstacle in the way of modelling. Really well done.

16: Manpreet (Amritsar, Punjab), May 16, 2010, 4:20 PM.

Sikhs cam adopt all fashions. Bravo!

17: I.N.M. (Tampa, Florida, U.S.A.), September 09, 2010, 2:36 AM.

I love his look. I like to go against the grain, and in the West his look is unique. I am also attracted to the 'obvious' Sikh man as I'm attracted to originality and not one who is blended in with everybody else ...

18: Amarjeet Singh (Pune, India), March 02, 2011, 1:37 AM.

Sardar always rocks!

19: Colette Yvonne Rhodes (Cincinnati, Ohio, USA), September 29, 2015, 4:09 PM.

Wow, these males are so striking and handsomely sexy! I can't think of anyone more exotic. I had the pleasure of dating one recently. He was something too … he swept me off of my feet.
