A Who’s Who of Karl Lagerfeld's Entourage Baptiste Giabiconi

Baptiste Giabiconi

"Skinny, skinny but with an athletic body — good for clothes and great with no clothes" is how Lagerfeld once described 24-year-old Giabiconi. After discovering him in 2008, Lagerfeld cast him in multiple campaigns and runway shows and the model eventually leveraged his fame into a record deal. By way of a thank-you, Giabiconi gave Lagerfeld the love of his life, a.k.a. Choupette. That said, Baptiste was rather out of focus and in the background in Chanel's fall campaign. Trouble in paradise?

Karl Karma: In addition to the modeling and record deal, he got a date with Katy Perry.
