His eyes are as blue as the ocean, his hair as white as snow, and wherever he goes a flock of Lucky Charms follow. Meet Lucky Blue Smith, the boy who launched a thousand likes. Born to a family of impossibly beautiful people and with a social media following to eclipse all others, Lucky Blue Smith is the fashion phenomenon of 2015. When he's not starring in campaigns for Tom Ford and Tommy Hilfiger, or stalking the catwalks of Versace and Balmain, the 17 year old Mormon model can be found lolling around the skate parks with his equally dreamy friends or making new music with his sisters, with whom he's in a "surf" band called The Atomics. He also spends his free time cuddling up to cute animals and video chatting with his fans. Everything he wears is made out of boyfriend material. Currently working on his first movie, Love Everlasting, we catch up with heartthrob and the star of our latest A-Z, Mr Lucky Blue Smith. He's so lucky, he's a star.

What do you want to be when you grow up?
It started out as a professional skateboarder, but then somehow changed to being a lawyer.

What were you like at school?
In school, I was energetic and talkative. I also loved to stick up for girls and kids that got picked on.

What's the hardest part of growing up?
I think it's hard to be the youngest in the family.

What's the best piece of advice you've ever been given?
Do good, get good. Do bad, get bad.

What's on your bucket list?
In no particular order… Sky dive, swim with sharks, play music at a sold out stadium with my sisters, land a lead role in a major Hollywood film.

What did you used to think you were right about, but when you grew up, realized you were totally wrong about?
I thought that I couldn't get hurt by things I did. Then I realized that was nonsense.

What's the bravest thing you've ever done?
I got in many fights sticking up for my sisters or other girls.

What's the soundtrack to your youth?
I'm gonna go with something like this… 10 Lovers (Black Keys), West Coast (Lana Del Rey), What I Got (Sublime), Are You Gonna Be My Girl (Jet).

What's you favorite coming of age movie?
The Breakfast Club!
