The buzz is still going strong about alleged new beaus pop star Katy Perry and male model Baptiste Giabiconi. According to a Page Six report the two knockouts met after being seated next to each other at last week’s Chanel runway show during Paris Fashion Week. “He was sitting next to her at the show,” a source said. “Then we all had dinner the other night, they were holding hands and looking cozy, and now they are inseparable.”
“He is a great guy and he’s totally smitten [with Perry],” another friend of Giabiconi’s said. “Katy is the perfect girl for him.” Of course he is. After all, what would a whirlwind Hollywood romance be if it wasn’t for one party professing their undying love to another within hours of meeting? Although the two love birds apparently hit a snag when Giabiconi bought Perry a bouquet of flowers and had planned a romantic date with her, but it was ruined when a fire started at the Place Vendome.
It’s no question the newly single Perry has been out on the prowl since her divorce from Russell Brand at the end of last year. Brand has raised eyebrows himself lately, by traipsing through L.A.with 25-year-old model and artist Oriella Medellin on his arm.
But if revenge is a dish best served cold, Perry seems to be ladling it on. Giabiconi was recently reported to be the highest-paid male model in the world and is best known as Karl Lagerfeld’s male muse in his work for Fendi and Chanel. But honestly, he could be selling hot dogs at a baseball game and we’d still be in love. Props to you, KP!
