Male model and Karl Lagerfeld muse Baptiste Giabiconi was confirmed for an interview with WWD columnist Jessica Iredale this week, but when she arrived at the Marilyn Agency's office he was nowhere to be found. Giabiconi's agents finally confessed that he wasn't even in the office but, in fact, still at his Chanel fitting. "You know, when it's Karl ..." they said. Iredale attempted to reschedule for the next day after the Chanel show, but Giabiconi had supposedly lost his phone. She concluded, "The Marilyn people must have lost theirs too because 'we will try' turned out to be radio silence." [WWD]
