Baptiste Giabironi

So a few things before I properly start this post.

I went out shopping a few days ago. I saw Nautical stripes EVERYWHERE!!! Seriously, in every shop. I'm loving the nautical trend, so am soooo glad that thats not going anywhere. Stripes and anchor + lots of navy blue: LOVE IT!

Also, we've got the winners of our Blogiversary giveaway, thanks to They are C. from Owl-Wings and
Luinae from More Magic Always! Congrats Ladies!!! Send us your addresses and we'll post the little purses off to you. Don't worry if you didn't win this time, we'll hopefully have more giveaways soon.

Now to the main topic of this post: Baptiste Giabiconi. Forget Kate Moss or Lily Cole, Baptiste is one of my new favourite models. If you don't know who he is, just look at any recent Chanel campaign or picture of Karl Lagerfeld, and you'll see him lurking somewhere.

I don't really go for male models. They just look too perfect (give me a rocker any day), but I have to admit that Baptiste is GORGEOUS!

The frenchman was born in 1990 (can't believe he's younger than me) and Karl Lagerfeld took him under his wing in 2008, when he saw him in a French Vogue editorial.
Since then, he's been in almost every Chanel campaign and is never more than a few feet away from Karl.

He's Karl's muse, and its clear to see why! Karl once described him as "a boy version of Gisele [B√ľndchen]: skinny, skinny but with an athletic body — good for clothes and great with no clothes.” ( I think thats a pretty good quote, lol.

Photo Credits

My ultimate favourite pictures of him are the ones Karl Lagerfeld took of him as Ken and modelling with Barbies.

I got the above Barbie pictures from Trendnista, where you can check out the rest of the campaign as well.

What do you think of him? A perfect pretty boy or very overrated?

P.S. Ted Baker contacted us about a really interesting competition they have for British Fashion Bloggers.
Basically, Ted Baker have released a crossword and everyday, on their blog, they will be releasing clues to fill in the crossword, on their blog.
The catch is that you figure out your own prizes. The letters in the pink boxes spell out the name of the female prize and the letters in the blue boxes spell out the male prize. All the clues will be released by the 9th February 2010.

To win, you’ll need to send your answer to The first female and first male to tell us what they won will receive the prize. You can contact the above address for any questions you have as well.

I am really quite excited about the nautical theme in the clothing and I think that male actor is fairly attractive, especially in the fashion show picture!

Leah said...

I'm in love with Karl's muse... good for clothes and great with no clothes. Hahaha! Karl is too funny but he's a genius and he knows how to choose a model. :-)
