Life Lessons from Karl Lagerfeld's Slammin' Hot Bodyguard

Over on Karl Lagerfeld's website, Karl.com, there's a video with Lagerfield's bodyguard/personal assistant/manservant Sebastien Jondeau called "How To Be The Perfect Karl Lagerfeld Bodyguard In 10 Steps." Jondeau breaks his job down into resume bullet points, like "prevent surprises" and "have a stylish eye" and "practice one combat sport, but keep your face intact."

Here's a seemingly unwritten rule: "be ruggedly, gloweringly handsome." Jondeau is also the face of the brand LAGERFELD in addition to his bodyguard duties. And he repeatedly appears shirtless in the video, which includes behind-the-scenes shots from the photoshoot for the Lagerfeld Fall/Winter advertising campaign.
