5 Things to Know About Gabriel Day-Lewis, the Gorgeous Model-Musician Son of Daniel
Good looks – and talent – run in this family
His father is a world-famous three-time Oscar winner, but these days, Gabriel-Kane Day-Lewis is making a name for himself.
He’s just 20 years old, but in the past year, the son of Daniel Day-Lewis and French actress Isabelle Adjani has turned heads on the runway, released his first single and proved he’s a mandatory follow on Instagram. What else do you need to know about him?
1. He and his famous father share a love for ink
These two don’t just share a strong jawline: While Dad has tattoos of two handprints, a mermaid and a compass dotting his arms, Gabriel-Kane favors birds, Latin phrases and full-on tattoo sleeves.
2. His brows are on fleek – and they’re his signature
When he was a kid, Gabriel-Kane saw his bushy brows as an embarrassment. But in the modeling world, having a distinctive set of arches is an advantage. “In middle school, I was always teased for my disproportional eyebrows. And now they’re actually getting me work,” he told Vanity Fair. They’re doing more than just that – they’re making him the male answer to Cara Delevingne, for more reasons than one.
3. He’s already made his high-fashion debut
Just like his fellow big-browed Brit, he’s a favorite of Karl Lagerfeld. He made his first appearance at Paris Fashion Week last February, walking into the Chanel show with Julianne Moore on his arm. Of course, for someone who grew up sharing a house with Oscar royalty, hob-nobbing with that year’s Best Actress front-runner is nothing.
4. He’s a gym rat
Or at least, we have to imagine he is, based on this bulky ‘gram.
5. He released his first EP last year.
The guitar player isn’t just making waves in the modeling world – he’s breaking into music, too. Under the name Gabriel-Kane, he released his first EP, “Every Scar Is a Healing Place,” last September. His breathy, soulful voice, featured in his debut single “Ink In My Veins” (told you the guy liked tattoos!) almost has a John Mayer vibe to it. And since then, he’s covered Justin Bieber’s ballad “Love Yourself,” which is just as addictive as the original.
