Baptiste Giabiconi, born in 1986, in Dordan, France, is a French model, ranked number 1 in-demand model in the world as of 2009. In a dispersed male model market one of the world's most powerful fashion figures (initials KL) makes a stand and anoints Baptiste Giabiconi as the "One". Think multiple campaigns two seasons running, some serious time in the media spotlight and a big rush of buzz and talk. World, meet Baptiste Giabiconi. Giabiconi's face shot to fame thanks to his toyboy role in the summer 2009 Chanel accessories campaign photographed by Karl Lagerfeld. He was accompanied by Jerry Hall, in an ad campaign that catapulted him to fame. Karl Lagerfeld was struck by his good looks: he made Giabiconi the star of his latest Chanel Cruise ad campaign, which had Venice in the background, and made him a toyboy in the Fendi campaign too. Summer 2009 is definitely Baptiste's season: he's been the face of "Chanel", "K" by Karl Lagerfeld, "Frankie Morello" and "Armani Jeans". His face has also become famous in top magazines: he's starred in "Tetu", "V Man", "Numero Homme", "V Magazine" and "Harper´s Bazaar".
