Remember earlier when we posted that photo of Karl Lagerfeld in his chocolate fantasy suite, complete with a candy bar headboard, dark chocolate armchair and cocoa dusted sculpture of his male muse Baptiste Giabiconi? Well that’s nothing compared to this photo we found of him in the same room, in which Lagerfeld is actually touching the sculpture.
It’s not lewd or anything, just one real-life guy grabbing a fake chocolate guy’s hand. But still. It makes us slightly uncomfortable and sort of weirded out but at the same time fascinated by what Lagerfeld and Giabiconi’s, erm, relationship is really like. Because apparently it’s close enough for Karl to feel comfortable caressing the hand of a Giabiconi sculpture reclining on a bed in his underwear, but not the guy himself.
