Riccardo Tisci famously fell in love with Lara Stone upon first sight when he cast her exclusively for Givenchy’s Fall 2006 Haute Couture runway event. A no one at the time, it was Stone’s first foray onto the runway, and would propel the young Dutch model to fashion world stardom, leading her to fronting campaigns, finale-ing shows, several CR covers, and becoming a gap-toothed face of a generation.
From Justin Bieber to Kate Moss, whom she embraced for Balenciaga’s Fall/Winter 2015 campaign, Stone has amassed quite a crew through the years, but perhaps no connection is quite as unique as hers with Luka Sabbat. While recently linked to Kourtney Kardashian, the 21-year-old influencer has been making waves in fashion for the last few seasons thanks to his model-esque looks, eccentric streetwear style, and friendships with fashion crossovers like that of Virgil Abloh, Kanye West, and A$AP Rocky. As it turns, Stone apparently babysat him as a child.
While not much is known about the exact set-up—when, where, how—it is likely the job came from Sabbat’s mother, Jessica Romer, who worked for many years as a model booker and in fashion show production for Bureau Betak on Christian Dior. Like all watcher/watchee relationships, the babysitting ended at one point. We can only hope they still share a nod when they pass each other in the late-night night clubs in Paris.END
