Monica Bellucci, 54, debuted her 36-year-old lover at the Chanel runway show

Celebs are seen at the Chanel Fashion Show

Paris Fashion Week is still happening, and today was the big Chanel show. This was Karl Lagerfeld’s last collection for Chanel, so the label did a big, splashy runway show and so many of Lagerfeld’s most loyal muses came out for it. There were tears. Women and men were crying in the front row.

The Chanel show was also an opportunity for Monica Bellucci to make a big public debut with her younger boyfriend. Monica is 54 years old, and her boyfriend is 36-year-old Nicolas Lefebvre. This is not the first we’ve heard of them, and they’ve been pap’d together before, but this is the first time (I think?) that they’ve ever attended an event together and posed together. He’s really beardy and hipster-looking, but I can see the attraction. He’s good-looking and Monica is gorgeous. Why not? Especially when Monica’s 52-year-old ex-husband recently impregnated his 21-year-old wife.

Kristen Stewart – who has had a Chanel contract for years – was there to honor Lagerfeld’s last Chanel collection too. She sat next to Janelle Monae for the show! WHY AREN’T THEY A COUPLE.

    Jesus called. He wants his look back.

    • isabelle says:

      He looks very handsome underneath all of that hair. Beautiful eyes.

    • Who ARE These People? says:

      Exactly! My first thought, too – white Jesus, anyway.

    • Idiotsgalore says:

      1000% thought the same thing!

    • Monicack says:

      He has gorgeous eyes but I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Fabio hair.

    • Kitten says:

      Here’s a challenge for y’all. Read this without throwing up:

      “In the world and work of Nicolas Lefebvre, the woman, and especially the mother, is a starting point. She is the goddess for whom his admiration has no bounds. It is thanks to his mother that the common thread of his work has started. She inspired him in all his works and passed him more than the picture of the endless maternal love: sensitivity. Nicolas has travelled since his youngest age all around the world, through all the continents and more than once, from Africa to Mexico, India and Asia. He tirelessly got inspired from these numerous discoveries which filled him with wonder, so these remote influences are naturally present in his art. He invented it by giving a new life to pieces and objects coming from these faraway places, which he got during his trips and curiosities. It is like a tribute he pays to the lands he threaded upon when he was a child, with his mother. From his artist father, his mentor, he remembers the philosophy, freedom and independence. It is a mix of values and well-defined attractions which contrasts in a solar way with the established norms. Meeting Nicolas is like getting away for a warm and mind-blowing stopover in the heart of Paris. The Socialite Family met him in his place, with his daughter Anahi, the dare-devil, for an eclectic visit full of anecdotes.”

      LOLOL I mean this was published (I’m sorry, “finely curated”) in an online magazine called “The Socialite Family” so I guess they’re just appealing to their target audience. But STILL, that is some impressively pretentions tripe right there. Watch out, Goop!

      • Jaded says:

        Ahhh I can see the ghost of Barbara Cartland has possessed the writer of that tripe.

      • Kitten says:

        LOL, Jaded!!!

      • Glor says:

        Top prize, Kitten 😅 (And please take this cheque for ten million pounds, for skewering the pestilential word ‘curated’)
        That has *everything*! It sounds wonderfully like a Craig Brown hatchet job in Private Eye, though apparently it real life. So beyond; it’s priceless!

        Critical acclaim:
        ‘How delightful for world of luxury and fine dining, that this Renaissance model/creative soul chooses to select well-meaning but
        unsophisticated rustic artefacts from the many long-inaccessible spots he treks to, and that he then polishes, no, recreates them, and they emerge, through his sensitive, spiritual ‘work’, as de luxe, taste-signifying, cash-intensivised collectibles for the busy discerning client of high net worth.

        Cripes, all this stuff tonight is making me drunk in charge of an iPhone.

      • Ader says:

        Ahhhahahaha!!! Thank you for introducing me to this pretension. It’s amazing.

      • Parigo says:

        I had a friend who’s house was in that blog. It’s French and when she writes in English it’s absolutely cringe worthy.

  2. Valiantly Varnished says:

    I think K-Stew has a type that’s why: “hipster white girl”.
    As for Monica’s boyfriend. He looks dirty and like she dressed him.

    • Christina says:

      I’m tired of people saying that men with long hair and beards look dirty. His hair is obviously clean and so is his beard. If you don’t like the style, fine, but don’t call him dirty.

      • Valiantly Varnished says:

        Hold up. Literally no where in my comment did I state that all men with long hair are dirty. That’s YOUR assumption of what I said. I LOVE long hair on men. I’ve had a crush on Russell Brand for ages. Brad Pitt looked his best during the Legends of the Fall period IMO. Jason Momoa is beautiful. This dude LOOKS DIRTY. That’s my opinion. End of.

      • Gobo says:

        Christina- It’s like whenever someone isn’t smoothly manicured and groomed the word “dirty” gets thrown around. Ungroomed and dirty are not the same thing. The guy looks perfectly clean to me. See also; Jason Momoa.

    • Yup, Me says:

      And Janelle Monae’s style doesn’t seem to be whatever K Stew does.

      I love Janelle’s scarab bag, though!

    • JustSayin' says:

      Janelle is not lesbian, I don’t know where people are getting this from unless I missed something?
      She has not come out as far as I know. And last I heard she had a boyfriend.

    • missskitttin says:

      His suit is ill fitting and his balayage is outdated

  3. Steff says:

    Is Janelle still rumored to be with Tessa Thompson?

  4. a reader says:

    Please do not wish Kristen’s messiness on Janelle, who is perfectly happy and coupled up with Tessa Thompson.

    • LadyLaw says:


    • Kumquat says:

      1)Yes to your point

      2)IMO they’re both looking amazing here. I’m especially loving Janelle’s outfit.

    • bonobochick says:

      Didn’t Tessa deny they’re together? I’d read Tessa is dating Dev Hynes

    • schmootc says:

      Yep, Janelle seems like she is much more pulled together than Kristen.

    • Anna says:

      Thank you. Regardless of her status with Tessa, it’s an absolute NO for KStew. My comment was deleted for some reason but all I have to say is: KS is not even on Janelle’s level. Never never never never. Janelle is a brilliant, genius, queen. It’s random seating, nothing more.

  5. minx says:

    Get it, Monica.

    • Anna says:

      Agreed! Woo yes. I love this esp given that her ex looks 20 years older than his years from drink and drug and is a serial cheater who just knocked up his 21 year old wife. [massive eye roll] Have loved Monica forever and so glad to see her getting hers with a beautiful individual.

      • minx says:

        I loved her forever too…so beautiful and elegant. And her ex looks terrible 😂

  6. Ebi says:

    Monica Bellucci can do what she wants. We saw her in Call My Agent – such a good show- and she was funny, self aware and of course, beautiful.

  7. HK9 says:

    Look at Monica livin her best life, yassss girl!

    • dj says:

      I love Monica B. I say get some! Kristen S. has a punchable face/attitude. She looks good here but I still really kind of hate her…nothing personal…her attitude.

  8. Tiffany says:

    Ummm…Janelle is with Tessa Thompson and they are hella hot together.

  9. Lana234 says:

    Janelle Monae can do better than Kristin Stewart. If Monica Belucci is happy with this guy good for them.

  10. Sojaschnitzel says:

    I think Monica Bellucci might be the most beautiful woman that I have ever seen.

  11. Mitzy says:

    K-Stew more like K-Ew – I cannot stand her, she looks like she needs a good wash. I do not understand her appeal at all. She always looks like she is about 5 seconds away from a major tantrum and that she hates everything and everyone.

    • CariBean says:


    • Ebi says:

      Umm, where are you seeing this? She looks fantastic, happy and yes- clean.

      • Josephine says:

        I can’t figure out whether you are being sarcastic about the happy part. She looks mildly put out to be there. I loathe that awful jumpsuit they put her in (and the shoes are the worst) but I’ve been loving her hair and make-up and the red glasses are nice. Her skin looks beautiful.

      • Ebi says:

        Josephine- haha- well, yes, she looks about as happy as she ever looks which is mildly amused, but that’s a far cry from “a major tantrum” and “hating everything and everyone” She’s interesting and can really pull off dramatic make-up. I’m for her, and don’t understand why some people think she looks dirty. Is is just old Twi-hards refusing to move on?

      • Erinn says:

        I don’t see anyone here looking ‘dirty’ or anything of the sort. I never understand how that’s a go-to comment for certain people.

        And nobody is beaming in these photos – KStew doesn’t look any more unhappy than anyone else. She’s always had a bit of RBF, but I’m not going to fault her on her neutral expression. I have a similar look on my face a lot of the time – it’s just my face.

    • Cat says:

      Sure she looks like she needs a wash?? Let’s see… clean styled hair; great makeup on prefect skin; arms, legs and neck look clean, and clean shoes and clothes

  12. Sparkly says:

    He looks plucked right out of the eighties in that hair and outfit. Good for her though. Good for both of them. I’m 37, and I’d totally date Monica Bellucci if given the chance.

  13. Dttimes2 says:

    I get Sam Elliott vibes from his eyes..

  14. CES says:

    Is he that guy who dedicates his twitter page to let women know what they should do if they want a man? The page is very sexist full of “get thin and be pretty” if you want a man. If he isn’t the same guy they look very similar.

  15. hkk says:

    KStew’s eye makeup is #goals. I wish I could do makeup like her.

  16. BPM says:

    I wish I could get away with wearing sunglasses indoors.

  17. cupcake says:

    He is FINE as wine to me, he has one of those faces that can wear all of that hair and Monica can do no wrong in my eyes.

    Janelle makes Kristen look good by sitting next to her, they could be buds but not lovers, they may both play the same roles. I’d rather like to continue to think of Janelle & Tessa being a couple.

  18. Dude is wearing someone elses clothes, someone short & fat.

  19. Nancy says:

    He is hot, imo, at least his face is. I don’t like long hair on men in our generation, seems like they’re trying to make fetch happen again. But again, he is a hottie. Is Kristin always pissed off or is she doing the Kim Kardashian, I don’t want to get wrinkles thing. She is pretty and has a great bod, maybe she is constipated… JK 😏

    • Cat says:

      There were plenty shots of Kristen smiling, before, during and after the show. Kristen has zero control of the pictures chosen, to be published.

      • Nancy says:

        I was more focused on the dude and just noticed she didn’t look happy. She never does to me. I do hope I’m wrong and she is happy as can be!

    • Nancy says:

      Oh how I take back my “hot” comment. I kept seeing his face yesterday online, tv and he is so not hot. Taking a long afternoon nap (thank you Thea!) and put some extra strength eye drops in. He is so not hot….to me anyway.

  20. Harla says:

    Every time I see Monica Bellucci I just sigh…she has an old world style and beauty about her…sigh…

  21. SpilldatT says:

    She can get it while she can.

    I’m not sold on his flat ironed badly coloured hair, but hey if he is making her happy, more power to her.

    And as for K-Stew hooking up with Monae, GODS NO. I can’t stand K-Stew, and Monae is way, way, WAY too good for her idiotic cheating ass. Please Monae, don’t even think about it.

  22. NicoleInSavannah says:

    If this is the last show from Kaiser Karl and it was mentioned that most were crying, I’d imagine there weren’t a ton of bright and smiling faces.

  23. Cupcake says:

    I’m sure he’s got more to offer in bed than her ex.

  24. Crystal says:

    Does anyone remember the episode of arrested development where Portia DeRossi’s character picks up a homeless guy that she’s mistaken for a hipster? This is what this photo of Monica Belluci reminds me of… he could use a hairbrush and his suit so doesn’t fit him. Where did she find this guy??

    • BchyYogi says:

      At her age, I dated a young kind of “off” not so healthy younger guy. I can nearly “feel” her, “I’m embarrassed” vibes.

  25. missskitttin says:

    His suit is ill fitting and his balayage is outdated

  26. Canadian says:

    @spilldatt agreed x3

    Janelle Monae seems so beautiful and smart, I hope her epic vagina pants stay zipped up around the cheating KStew. Plus, zero chemistry between them.

  27. Kat says:

    Just here to say, “Get it, gurl!”

  28. Raina says:

    Do you girl. And afterward, do him.

  29. anony7 says:

    Are shorter jacket/shirt-sleeve lengths a thing today? Like he’s wearing?
