How hashtags and filters helped model Lucky Blue form a One Direction-like following of fans
Lucky Blue Smith lives up to his name.
The 16-year-old male model, who happens to be a Mormon, is the fortunate owner of a stunning set of blue eyes that have helped him woo his growing Instagram following.
This dedicated fan base, mostly made up of squealing tweens, is 1.2 million strong, making the 6’2″ Smith a recognizable face in the fashion world and on the streets.
Like Cara Delevingne, Smith has used his social media success to help power his presence on the catwalk. The model started off at the age of 12 and landed a Calvin Klein campaign in 2014. From this exposure, Smith’s Instagram account started to grow, and as the numbers increased, so did his gigs. The white-blond beauty is now the new face of Tom Ford, and he walked in 12 shows during his first Fashion Week.
Understandably, Smith is embracing his One Direction-esque fame, posting his whereabouts on Instagram so admirers can meet him after shows. His screeching, selfie-loving followers always show up in droves to meet the model.
Along with sharing his whereabouts, Smith indulges in Instagram’s favorite games, including #TBT shots, pet pictures, and photos of himself performing with his band The Atomics, which consists of him and his gorgeous sisters.
