If a model currently resides in a jail barge while awaiting stickup charges, is he still a model? The New York Post sounds skeptical: "He's a stunner even in prison gray -- unblemished skin, perfect hair and a body that makes a jailhouse jumpsuit look stylish. But then high-fashion Hugo Boss catwalker Joshua Walter, 20, opens his mouth, and he's all thug, brashly insisting he's still a big-time model in a brief and contentious interview yesterday with The Post." Thug or not, those are still some serious cheekbones. [NYP]
