Chanel, Fendi and “Karl” designer Karl Lagerfeld’s bodyguard also models for his employer, because Karl isn’t abut to hire a non-model bodyguard. If you’re gonna have to stare at someone all day they might as well be buff AND beautiful, right?
Sebastien Jondeau, often photographed as a threesome with Karl and Baptiste Giabiconi, was cast in the advertising for Karl’s menswear line earlier this year. In that ad, he is credited as “personal assistant”, but I wonder if that means taking a bullet for Monsieur Lagerfeld? What exactly does personal assistant/bodyguarding entail? And what if Karl is attacked but Sebastien’s pants are too tight for him to move properly? (cuz the man wears some tight pants. Not that I`m looking). He spills a little bit of his secrets here, and has a full interview coming out in Man of the World magazine, out Dec 30.
