Baptiste Giabiconi: Karl Lagerfeld’s new toy boy

19 year-old, Baptiste Giabiconi is from Marseille in the south of France and used to work in the aeronautic industry. Last year after being spotted in a gym, he signed with DNA models in New York. Karl Lagerfeld hired him immediately as the male face of Chanel.

Karl says he is like a “boy version of Gisele Bundchen: skinny, skinny but with an athletic body-good for clothes and great with no clothes.” Karl Lagerfeld recently shoot an editorial for September issue of Numerous starting of course his protégé Baptiste Giabiconi and Lara Stone.

“I think after the ugly skinny boys of Hedi [Slimane’s] days … some ‘beauty’ was needed, but new beauty.” Shared Karl Lagerfeld with WWD.
