Baptiste Giabiconi - 15,606 followers
Giabiconi is often pegged as the world’s highest paid male model, perhaps because he’s been romantically linked as the kept boy of legendary designer and creative director Karl Lagerfeld for at least five years.

He is currently the face of Chanel and Fendi, and is working on a pivot into the music industry.

Originally a dancer, Serine was discovered while performing with his hip-hop dance crew on his island home of Martinique in the French West Indies.
