With all the current calling out against unpaid internships this seems a little counterintuitive. Then again, it’s KARL FREAKIN’ LAGERFELD.
Karl Lagerfeld is an incredibly busy dude. He designs for Chanel, Fendi, and his namesake label, collaborates with every brand underneath the sun, and takes care of his adorable cat Choupette. How does he fit all that into 24 hours? Well, he doesn’t.
Congratulations, you’ve made it through hump day! As a reward, we suggest you sit back, relax, and enjoy this video of Harper’s Bazaar‘s Laura Brown exchanging some witty banter with Karl Lagerfeld. Let’s just say we think they’d make a great comedic pair.
To say that the fashion industry loves cats would be an understatement. Choupette is becoming more famous than her owner Karl Lagerfeld, Grace Coddington designed a bag inspired by Pumpkin, and Agent Provocateur‘s Valentine’s Day ad is one naughty double entendre. Now it’s Glamour‘s turn, with four nights of feline-centric fêtes for fashion insiders and the public.
Céline who? The new big thing is Féline. Meeeow.
Karl Lagerfeld is taking advantage of the last week of the year to crack us up one final time with his notable quotables. Check out what he had to say in this wide-ranging interview on BBC Radio 4 this morning.
You know who has had a way more fabulous week than you? This stray cat.
Everything she does just turns to gold, doesn’t it?
As Brad Pitt will remind you, Chanel No. 5 is pretty much everywhere. Well, at least we think that’s what he means by the line “wherever I go, there you are.” Who knows. Anyways, this had us thinking that we really don’t come across Karl Lagerfeld‘s eponymous fragrances anywhere. But that’s all about to change!
For those who think imitation is the best form of flattery, well, you’ve never seen this video.
And other krazy things we learned in the inaugural issue of M magazine.
Uh oh. Looks like there’s going to be a big, Kanye-sized hole in the Paris Fashion Week schedule this season, because it’s just been announced that Yeezy will not be showing a collection in the City of Lights next week after all.
Err, ‘fur balls’ or ‘furballs’? Choupette is a lady, right?
If you thought Choupette spends her day in Colette bags and eating out of Goyard dishes, you’re so wrong. Fashion’s favorite feline likes to hang out at photoshoots and getting kissed by Karl Lagerfeld. And what cat doesn’t want that?
Nudity seems to be a theme today, doesn’t it? This time, however, it’s not a royal in the buff, but Nicole Kidman. And she’s not quite naked — but Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele has styled her in a Chanel garment that definitely lies somewhere in the middle of the belt-miniskirt spectrum.
Looks like Choupette‘s got competition.
It’s been more than eight months since Karl Lagerfeld first introduced us to his kitten Choupette, and yesterday, the white ball of fur turned one year old! How did fashion’s most pampered pet celebrate? With a shrimp cake, of course!
Hopefully Choupette doesn’t get wind of this! Although, she probably wouldn’t deign to chase a mouse anyways.
Choupette‘s first-ever magazine shoot is here! Fashion’s most famous kitty puts her best face forward with French model-turned-actress Laetitia Casta in the September issue of V magazine. The glossy is quick to point out that Casta is the co-star of the shoot and that the two were photographed “one balmy evening in Paris”.
