French model Baptiste Giabiconi, who’s been described as the “muse” of Chanel head Karl Lagerfeld (both in pic at right), is apparently dating Katy Perry—and considering a move to L.A. to be closer to her, according to Page Six.
What will Karl have to say about all this? Despite persistent rumors that Karl was a lot more than just Baptiste’s boss (he is the face of Chanel’s eyewear), we think Karl would congratulate Baptiste on landing a pop star who isn’t “a little too fat” like Adele.
A rep for the impeccably sculpted Chanel model said of the budding romance: “It’s new, they’re feeling it out, but they’re spending a lot of time together.”
Giabiconi once told the fashion mag Dansk: “If I could make her divorce her husband, I’d marry her.” Now that Katy’s ex Russell Brand has gone and done that for Baptiste, the doors are open.
Lagerfeld once described Giabiconi as “a boy version of Gisele Bundchen: skinny, skinny but with an athletic body—good for clothes and great with no clothes.”
