As Karl Lagerfeld's longtime muse, the Elle Italia Baptiste Giabico editorial has the ridiculously good-looking model airbrushed as a manequin and doing a very accurate impression of a Ken doll.
Styled by head designer of Chanel, Lagerfeld also photographed the Elle Italia Baptiste Giabico spread for the magazine's October issue.
The editorial consists of a mostly shirtless Baptiste Giabico which I am sure his minion of female fans will be more than happy about.
