Meet the Movie Star’s Son Karl Lagerfeld Is Obsessed With
As a fashion legend with a lot of clout, Karl Lagerfeld has discovered and propelled many a handsome guy into fashion-world fame. There’s his bodyguard Sebastien Jondeau (who occasionally works as a model) and American Brad Kroenig, whose elementary-school-aged son benefited from Dad’s model looks insofar as he’s a Chanel runway regular himself. That sort of devotion and talent-spotting make it worthwhile to pay attention to anyone the designer turns his eye to, including the latest: Gabriel-Kane Day-Lewis, son of actors Daniel Day-Lewis and Isabelle Adjani.
“My new discovery I like a lot is Gabriel-Kane Day-Lewis,” Lagerfeld told The Daily Front Row. “I do more personality than models. I love to work with the same people for years.”
Day-Lewis made his first foray into Lagerfeld’s world when he accompanied Julianne Moore into Chanel’s couture show this July. We’ll be waiting to see if he makes an appearance at the house’s upcoming spring ’16 show, though it doesn’t appear that the high-fashion world contains his first choice for a profession.
Rather, the 20-year-old has his sights set on a music career, recently releasing a single called “Every Scar Is a Healing Place” (he’d previously recorded a rap video with his life at Sarah Lawrence College serving as raw material). Still, Karl need not totally lose hope for signing Day-Lewis junior up for a future campaign: he’s signed to IMG and just shot a spread for Citizen K magazine. Prior to his latest gig, that handsome face has seen some page-time on glossies like CR Fashion Book and the French edition of Vanity Fair. Add that editorial experience with the fact that he’s currently hanging with Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner and it sounds like we’ve got another it-model situation brewing.
Last night was honestly so lit! Rolling with @lestwinsoff @lestwinson @gigihadid and @kendalljenner ???????? I’m still blind from that photo call lol no more posts from last night I promise.
