christmas with lucky blue smith
To celebrate the advent of the festive season, we asked i-D's family and friends to share their most cherished Christmas memories, reflect on whether they’ve been naughty or nice, and tell us their New Year’s resolutions for 2017.
Happy go Lucky Blue Smith is the blonde-haired, blue-eyed teen dream who shot to fame as a model before turning his hand to acting with a role in this summer's Love Everlasting. A young man couldn't possibly get cooler than that, right? Wrong! Lucky plays drums in a band with his older sisters, Starlie, Daisy, and Pyper America.
i-D's friendship with the heartbreaker goes way back, having made the A-Z of Lucky Blue Smith with him over a year ago, quizzed him about his not at all premature autobiography Stay Golden in a live-streamed interview and, you know, having generally stalked him online for quite some time now. Christmas is a time for family and, as the Smiths are one of the coolest we know, we dropped the youngest member a line and asked him to delve into his Christmas past, present and future for us. We're so Lucky, he's a star.
