Baptiste!

Baptiste Giabiconi, known as Karl Lagerfeld's current muse/favorite male model, apparently has dreams of singing and making campy but hilarious music videos.



While he's clearly got the looks to be a model, I just can't take him seriously (and I'm not sure anyone can except possibly Karl). Who looks that pretty after riding a motorcycle on desert roads? What man notices a girl's necklace instead of her halfway exposed chest? I will say that I'm happy he "saved" the girl from her abuser boyfriend, but then he has to go and feed his carnal desires in a trashy hotel room — after she'd clearly been hit by said abuser boyfriend. Maybe that's not weird? I don't know.

Anyway, this kid is kind of funny. He was studying hotel management before he became a model. (Either hotel management, working at a helicopter plant, or both. Sources disagree.)


 
On a side note, here's a wonderful nonsensical rambling by Karl Lagerfeld:
"Photography is photography. When people say, 'I'm making art' in inverted commas, that's just pretentious. A photo is a photo, and that's it. What other people see in it is not my problem."

Also, I have listened to this three times since I discovered it yesterday.
