Julian Casablancas of The Strokes was born August 23, 1978 to Jeanette Christiansen a former model and Miss Denmark in 1965 and John Casablancas, the founder of the prestigeous Elite Model Management.
Here’s shots of Jeanette & John with young Julian… Julian’s parents divorced when he was nine, and he was raised by his mother in New York City.
John Casablancas’ agency represented and launced all the top supermodels such as Tyra Banks, Gisele Bundchen, Elle Macpherson, Cindy Crawford, Heidi Klum, etc…. .When asked if he wanted his younger children to become models would he approve? He answered,
“If I thought they could do well. There’s nothing worse than a mediocre modeling career. I have a son [Julian, of the Strokes] who’s a rock star. And I’ve probably been more against rock than modeling.”
