Wallpaper invited Philippe Starck and Karl Lagerfeld to create covers for the October issue. Knowing how Karl’s mind works, he really only had three options: his man candy Baptiste Giabiconi wearing nothing but a fur wrap, his man candy Baptiste Giabiconi wearing nothing but high heels, or his man candy Baptiste Giabiconi wearing nothing. He went with option No. 3, if you can imagine. The Kaiser shot Baptiste in a Dior Homme suit for the cover, but then added a layer of paper over that, which you can pull back to reveal his man candy Baptiste naked. Inside the magazine you’ll find a 27-page editorial of Baptiste.
Conversely, Philippe’s cover depicts an amoeba, a monkey wearing shoes, and a question mark. But who says that can’t be just as sexy as a naked male version of Gisele?
