MEET JOE DOLCE, THIS YEAR’S VMAN & FORD MODEL SEARCH WINNER, AS HE SHOWS US AROUND HIS HOME TURF IN OCEANSIDE, NEW YORK  

“Fashion is powerful. It’s an art form,” says model search winner Joseph “Joe” Dolce. A 22-year-old former dental equipment salesman, Dolce entered the model search hoping to find an opportunity to express himself creatively. “Being a model allows me to show my artistic side. I get to step out of my comfort zone and broaden my horizons.” Having just recently become interested in fashion, Dolce enjoys trends that hit close to home. “I really love the James Dean vibe. I was born and raised in Long Island, so I grew up on pinky rings and gel.”

Dolce lives in Oceanside, New York—“The Dirty O,” he calls it—a place where everyone knows everyone. His mother is a hairdresser in a neighboring town and his stepfather taught him how to play golf when he was 10, which he’s been passionate about ever since. Joe developed a penchant for individual sports because when you lose “there’s no one to blame but yourself.” Dolce spends much of his time with his two pit bulls, Bella and Maximus. “Pit bulls aren’t bad dogs,” he says. “They can be big mushes.”

Dolce reps his heritage by wearing a tattoo of his last name on his chest, and describes his Italian family as “big, loud, and ridiculous, with sauce every Sunday. But I wouldn’t have it any other way.”
