A fancy-schmancy title like, say, “Balmain creative director” might lull some parents into a false sense of security that prevents them from checking up on their no-longer-little bundles of joy, but not Olivier Rousteing’s folks. The 27-year-old designer recently told i-D Magazine that his position at the head of a storied fashion house still doesn’t grant him a royal reprieve from surveillance of the fatherly kind:
“My dad loves my Instagram because he can see what I’m doing and where I am. Sometimes he calls me and says, ‘Close your shirt button!’”
As devout followers of his son’s account, we can assure Papa Rousteing there’s nothing alarming about it except those sternum-exposing tops. Models, Rihanna, more models, Calvin Harris, beach frolicking, baby photos — they all point to a fun-loving, work-life-balancing kid who was raised right enough to not make duck faces.
Mr. R might give him a ring about the shirtless pics, but for the rest of us, the only thing(s) that’ll raise a red flag are those dimples.
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
