It is clear that luck has little to do with the frenzy surrounding model Lucky Blue Smith. If you aren't already a part of his instagram following of 1.1 million, here's why you should be

Discovered at the age of 12 in Utah... Lucky Blue Smith has been making waves in and out of the industry with his platinum blonde mane and icy-blue stare. His past season's runway portfolio includes big names such as Etro, Alfred Dunhill, Bottega Veneta and Salvatore Ferragamo, and Smith has also fronted campaigns for Ksubi Denim and Philipp Plein amongst others.

His real name is Lucky Blue Smith... and his sisters Pyper America and Daisy Clementine are also models. Smith is frequently photographed alongside Pyper America, and the duo can be seen side by side in the Ksubi Denim Fall 2015 campaign, and have been shooting together for Hugo.

Modeling is not his only forte... as Smith is also the drummer of the band The Atomics. His three other siblings – the last being sister Queen Starlie – make up the rest of the group. Also set to star in the movie Love Everlasting, the motorbike is his trusty film companion from what we gather via Instagram. This season's Philipp Plein's menswear show in Milan also sees Smith barelling down the runway on a similar contraption. Catch the runway action here.

Meeting fans | @luckybsmith

When Smith is on-the-go for work, he posts his location on Instagram... and a loyal following turns up at the spot to meet and take selfies with him. The commitment of his fans might just surpass those of Cara Delevingne's.

The Lucky Blue Smith phenomenon calls for time on The Ellen Show... and a display of immaculate manners kicks off the interview. When asked about nerves when it comes to runways, Smith lets on that his heart drops during his walks because it strikes him that he's forgotten to turn in some homework.
