Lagerfeld’s Mysterious Muse, Baptiste Giabiconi
We are so excited about this week’s Model Monday because we are featuring the extremely handsome Baptiste Giabiconi. This beautiful French man got his modeling start back in 2008 when he signed with DNA Model Management in New York. It’s no surprise that Giabiconi quickly gained popularity with his amazing lips and defined jaw bone; Karl Lagerfeld took special note of Giabiconi and titled him muse. According to WWD, Lagerfeld described Giabiconi “a boy version of Gisele [Bündchen]: skinny, skinny but with an athletic body — good for clothes and great with no clothes.” Who wouldn’t want to be Mr. Lagerfeld’s arm candy? Lagerfeld has incorporated Giabiconi into anything and everything that has to do with the brands Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld.Numéro Homme, Harper’s Bazaar, V Man, and L’Officiel Hommes. This year Giabiconi became the face of Just Cavalli’s Spring ad campaign, and became the face of Coca Cola Light alongside Coco Rocha. Giabiconi seems to be the man of the moment, and who could disagree with is fabulous face and physique? He is even the envy of every model. WWD claims that upon meeting Giabiconi, Naomi Campbell said, “It’s not right: We all have defects. You have none.” From what it sounds like, the one word that describes Giabiconi as a whole would be, perfect.
