The Cat’s Out Of The Bag! The Choupette Purse, Coming Soon To A Chanel Store Near You

I used to think I was the craziest cat lover alive, but Karl Lagerfeld is giving me a serious run for my money. The Chanel designer, exalted for his stern, stubborn approach to fashion, diet, not getting massages, and basically everything else ever, has been a bit more subdued since he acquired the famously beautiful… More »


Karl Lagerfeld Announces A Collaborative Makeup Line With Japanese Brand Shu Uemura

I know, I talk about Karl Lagerfeld all day long, but it’s so hard not to when he can’t stop, won’t stop saying and doing things that baffle, offend, and inspire, often all at once. It’s safe to say that you can file this next Karl update under something that’s legitimately newsworthy, and not just… More »


The Good, The Bad & The WTF: Chanel’s “Little Black Jacket” Exhibit Opening

Chanel events always, without fail, draw an extraordinarily dressed crowd — Karl Lagerfeld, after all, only associates with the most fabulous of people (and yes, the same standard applies to his choice in pets). The Parisian fashion house feted the opening of a 113-photo exhibit to preface Lagerfeld’s upcoming photo book, a collaboration with former… More »


Karl Lagerfeld’s Siamese Cat Choupette Has More Personal Maids Than You

Everyone I know is probably sick to death of hearing me talk about Karl Lagerfeld, because he is a bastard, but who could ever get tired of hearing about his Siamese cat, Choupette? Not us. Especially when he goes on at length in interviews about how spoiled she is. WWD sought out Karl at the… More »


Karl Lagerfeld Hates Massages, Is Surprisingly In The Know About Hollywood Scandal

Karl Lagerfeld is known as much for making bizarre and inflammatory comments as he is for designing clothing. Let’s recap: Adele is a little too fat for his liking. He loves Dominique Strauss-Kahn. He doesn’t tolerate ugly children. He only likes high-class escorts, and doesn’t like sleeping with people he really loves. He thinks the… More »


Well Played: Cécile Cassel At The Showing Of Chanel’s Cruise Collection

Cécile Cassel is an unfamiliar name in the States, but as the daughter of the late Jean-Pierre Cassel, the young actress’s patrician French pedigree is kind of a big deal. Her brother has a larger American presence — you may recall his role as the ballet teacher Thomas Leroy in “Black Swan” or perhaps his… More »


Would You Wear … Chanel Face Stickers?

That Chanel logo on your powder compact is great, but wouldn’t it be even better on your face? No need to worry–soon you’ll be able to buy Chanel logo stickers as part of the brand’s upcoming Collection Versailles. Chanel’s makeup director Peter Philips says the black velvet stickers are supposed to resemble Marie Antoinette’s famous… More »


The Good, The Bad & The Meh: Chanel Artist Dinner

You can count on the Tribeca Film Festival and the events during it to provide a very eclectic crowd and, with that crowd, plenty of fashion fodder. Tuesday night’s turnout for the Chanel Artist Dinner at the glamorous Odeon was distinctly fashion-based, attracting designers, socialites, and — my absolute favorite — some of the modeling… More »


Are You On “Time” Magazine’s Most Influential Fashion Icons List?

You’ve got great style, sure, but have you made the cut of Time magazine’s list of most influential style icons? If not, that’s okay — only 100 designers, brands, models and muses were selected. The mag curated the list going back to its start in 1923. Some of the choice names?

Inveterate designers… More »


A Lagerfeld Life In 24 Hours

I get such a kick out of Karl. After casually poking fun at, like, everyone who isn’t Karl Lagerfeld last week, the kaiser is back and biting with a first-person Harper’s Bazaar feature that documents his life in 24 hours. If you’re sensitive to the shameless bourgeois, skip it, because I swear to god this… More »


Karl Lagerfeld Tries Daily Life On For Size

I can always count on Karl Lagerfeld to reassert just how much different his life is from the lives of us mere plebes. Rumors swirled this week after he suggested via Twitter that “we would see him like we’d never seen him before,” and yesterday morning WWD came out with the details: the April issue… More »


Chanel Debuts Bedazzled Eyebrows On The Runway

Chanel is one of the biggest trendsetters season after season. After all, we’re talking about the brand that made temporary tattoos chic. Global creative director of beauty Peter Philips is inarguably a makeup mastermind and his bedazzled eyebrows are nothing if not striking, but I pray that this latest venture will not be the next… More »


That’s A Lot Of Look: Alicia Keys At Chanel

Alicia Keys, you are generally really cute. And you can sing really well! But that doesn’t mean you should wander around the Paris Chanel show —  which is basically like Oz for fashion people — with weird head jewelry on. … More »


The Karl Lagerfeld Robot Manages To Say Something Offensive And Weird, Again!

For some reason, the French put Karl Lagerfeld in charge of the Paris edition of the Metro yesterday, giving the Chanel designer free reign to say whatever ridiculous thing he pleases. Herr Karl’s made such a habit of ridiculousness — claiming the best way to stay thin is by chain-smoking and downing Diet Coke and consomme… More »


Karl Lagerfeld Outdoes Himself (Again)

I await each Chanel show with bated breath, thrilled at the prospect of Karl Lagerfeld’s latest blowout. Need you be reminded, he notoriously flew a 265-ton glacier imported from Sweden to the venue of his Autumn/Winter 2010 show. For the Spring/Summer show that preceded it, he turned the runway into a massive barn, replete with… More »


The Couture Collections Are Here! Our 27 Favorite Looks From Day One

I love fashion, but the Paris couture collections make me absolutely giddy. These collections celebrate fashion as high art, and present frothy, impossibly constructed delectable creations that make grown women salivate. Of course, couture gowns cost in the tens and hundreds of thousands, so we won’t be buying one anytime soon, but that doesn’t mean… More »


Style Retrospective: Blake Lively

My, how Blake Lively has changed. I remember seeing her for the first time cast as the tomboyish soccer player Bridget in “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.” I would have never suspected that the spunky blonde who I fondly associated with a golden retriever would soon snag the role of the glossiest reformed bad… More »


Karl Lagerfeld Has A Kitten Named Choupette

Karl Lagerfeld isn’t exactly warm, fuzzy and cuddly , but dang, his new kitten is! Herr Karl adopted a new kitty, named Choupette (a French term of endearment), which is also what Herbie the Love Bug was nicknamed in those “Herbie” movies. The idea of Karl having a sweet little kitten seems quite at odds with… More »
