Man Candy Day: Baptiste Giabiconi, Jamie Dornan & Arthur Daniyarov

Sometime I wonder what makes a pretty boy a trendy model... Beauty of course, but maybe you need something more, or the right moment, or the photographer / stylist who sees in you the difference. Or maybe all above. This week I would like to feature three of the 10 Top Models of the moment. Baptiste is actually ranked n° 1 and someone could wonder why stylists want to dress him as a women...; Jamie has a bit the "bad boy" style and other than that, maybe he is famous also to have been Keira Knightley's boyfriend; finally as I'm doing lately, a new face, Arthur, definitely an unusual face, also a bit scaring...

French model Baptiste Giabiconi is Karl Lagerfeld’s new muse. After posing with only a cardigan and a pair of heels in French Vogue, Lagerfeld got his eyes on for him. You’ve seen him as Jerry Hall’s younger lover-boy in the new Chanel ad campaign but also as Barbie’s Ken during the 50th anniversary. And he really got the best of approval from Lagerfeld himself “He looks like me-well, maybe a better-looking version of me from a long time ago”. Not bad marks when coming from mr K.

His father, Jim Dornan, is an obstetrician. He was a teenager when his mother died. He attended and boarded at Methodist College, where he met David Alexander, who would become his songwriting partner in 2002, when they founded their two-piece Irish folk outfit, Sons of Jim. Their record label, Doorstep Records, was named after a sandwich shop in Belfast. Dornan attended the University of Teesside, but dropped out to pursue a modelling career, after being approached by the Select agency.

On the set of an Asprey photoshoot in 2003, Dornan met English actress Keira Knightley, who introduced him to her agent at PFD. From 2003 to late 2005, Dornan dated Keira Knightley. In March 2007, he was reportedly briefly linked with actress Mischa Barton.
