He’s fashion’s current rising star in the world of modelling, and touted as the male version of Cara Delevingne. Equally sharp features? We bet you on this. At 16, this 6ft 3″ (that’s about 195 cm) blue-eyed heartthrob has already graced the runway and appeared on the covers of glossy magazines. With over 1 million followers on Instagram, he’s next on the list to take over social media by storm. Meet Lucky Blue Smith—fashion’s male model of the moment. Here are 10 things you should know about the current It boy:
1) He was discovered at the age of 12.
Scouted in Utah, what happened as just a tag-along with his sisters to a modelling agency changed his life. The director of NEXT Model Management, Alexis Borges, discovered him and viola—a male model was born.
2) His face is not just on Instagram.
So he’s currently based in LA, but Lucky Blue has already been in London, Paris, Milan and New York, walking for labels like Fendi, Bottega Veneta and Roberto Cavalli for Men’s Fashion Week 2015.
3) The good looking genes run in the family.
His mother Sheridan (super beautiful), is a former model while his sisters Pyper America, 18, Daisy Clementine, 19, are models and his elder sister Queen Starlie, 21, a guitarist.
4) He’s in a band with his sisters.
They call themselves The Atomics, and Smith plays—drum roll, please—the drums.
5) His music taste is pretty damn fine, too.
As a drummer, of course he’d know what’s worth tuning in to. He listens to The Black Keys and The Killers.
6) He’s a Mormon.
And he plans to abstain from sex till marriage. Yes, guess that means you can only admire him from afar.
7) But that doesn’t mean he’s not open to dating.
His favourite qualities in a girl? “I like a girl with a good personality that I can have fun with. If I am taking you out on a date, let’s eat burgers and cheese fries”, he once said.
8) He’s a natural brunette!
So why did he bleach his hair to the current white? “My agent thought I looked too ‘sweet California boy,’ and they needed something edgy,” Smith once explained.
9) He has two looks.
One is the ‘you looking at me?’ look, and the other is ‘why you looking at me?’.
10) You’ll be seeing more of his face… In a movie.
He will be acting in an indie love movie titled Love Everlasting, directed by family friend Rob Diamond.
