In addition to being incredibly inspiring and ridiculously good-looking, Pistorius has also caught the attention of the house of Thierry Mugler, prompting the brand to tap the 25-year-old as the face of their A*Men fragrance and the new A*Men Pure Shot scent.
Ever since qualifying for the individual 400 meter and the 4x400 meter relay earlier this month, Pistorius has generated some major buzz — and quite a bit of controversy. Several news outlets have already questioned if the sprinter's carbon-composite prosthetics — called Cheetahs — give him an unfair advantage against "intact-limb runners." Well, it wouldn't be the Olympics without a little bit of controversy, now would it?
We were able to score an exclusive interview with Pistorius and got the chance to speak with him before he makes his historic run in London. Read on to find out his thoughts on fashion, how he keeps his body in tip-top shape, and why meeting Eva Mendes left him starstruck.
