Katy Perry Steals French Model Baptiste Giabiconi From Karl Lagerfeld

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.”

    Baptiste: “I kissed a girl and I liked it!”

    No amount of fame, and fortune can keep a straight man way from pussy. I just hope Karl got his fair share before Baptiste left him.

    He’s buy-sexual: he’ll have sex with you if you buy him things.

  • iDavid

    These comments are too funny.

  • David Ehrenstein

    Well Karl still has the chocolate sculpture he had made of Baptiste.
    Maybe he’ll chop it inot pieces and feed them to Adele.

    If they invented a list of the ‘creepiest people in the world’, Karl Lagerfeld would be number one on my list. The guy is not a human being. Just looking at that monster upsets my stomach.

    Karl Lagerfeld has been dead for ten years. Doesn’t somebody have the guts to tell him?

    That Lagerfeld dude looks like a “Planet of the Apes” reject. Is that bad? I’m a monster, I know…

  • the crustybastard


    My first thought was, “he looks like an albino ape using a tablecloth for a tie.”

    So yeah, you’re not alone.

    Where’s Jason to explain how the male model ditched Karl for Katy because male sexuality is false construct for the benefit of heterosexuals?

  • BubbasBack

    Poor Karl. A dirty, old, ugly man about to meet his maker soon. Burp.

  • DenverBarbie

    Karl Lagerfeld was interviewed sometime back by Bruce LaBruce for Vice Magazine, and it resulted in one of the greatest articles I have ever read. I’m a die-hard LaBruce fan (and indifferent to Lagerfeld), but he’s way too self-interested to be a great interviewer. Funniest 15 minute read ever-

    @Jimmy Velvet: Haha, oh my god!!!!

  • mollie

    who are these people??

  • DouggSeven

    @mollie: It’s the fashion industry, aka crazy people.

  • Just being real

    @5 Chad-Kathy Perry divorced her sleazy dirtbag husband Russel Brand who isn’t even that funny.

  • n900mixalot

    Truly sloppy seconds. They all deserve one another.
