2009: Brad Kroenig, male model, face of Le Chateau and constant Lagerfeld companion since 2006.
2010: Baptiste Giabiconi, who closed Chanel’s spring 2010 barnyard romp with Lara Stone and Freja Beha. Lagerfeld recently told WWD: “Baptiste is a boy version of Gisele: skinny, skinny but with an athletic body — good for clothes and great with no clothes.”
Cool kid designer

Tearjerker literary movie adaptation
2009: My Sister’s Keeper
