Lucky Blue Smith reminds you of a young Bowie, maybe itʼs the perfect rock star hair, or maybe itʼs the eyes, the jawline, the billion dollar smile, or the perfect skin.
One look at him and you think, this guy is a star. And youʼd be right. At the tender age of 20 Lucky Blue is the model, actor, musician who is “so hot right now”. Barely out of his teens Lucky has the international fashion world at his feet.
Just like his famous female counterpart in modelling Kendall Jenner, Blue has elevated being a top fashion model into being something much greater, into being a global mega influencer. Adored by his millions of followers and sought after by all the major luxury brands.
Lucky grew up in much more humble circumstances, born into a Mormon family in Utah, he was first scouted at the tender age of 10, when he hadnʼt yet grown into his buck teeth, itʼs been a meteoric rise from there. Recent technologies have ever-changed the worlds of fashion and modelling, as now digital platforms like Instagram offer instant access and a global scale of influence, and Lucky has surfed this wave well.
Lucky Blue is the poster boy for the Instagram generation, and whilst he didnʼt begin his career with the platform, he has quickly mastered the use of it. Models who have massive social followings are not just thoroughbred clothes horses, they come as fully packaged media phenomenons.
