Kim Kardashian Makes A Significant Fashion Score With The Cover Of CR Fashion Book

Is this really happening? After all of this time, and all of Anna Wintour‘s reported efforts — discouraging Kanye West from attending the Met Ball with Kim on his arm, refusing to deign to Yeezus’ request that North’s official unveiling come by way of a Vogue cover — is Kim Kardashian finally finding herself embraced, or at least tolerated, by the fashion industry’s inner circle?

Considering the sex tape/reality TV star landed the newest cover of Carine Roitfeld‘s biannual editorial tome CR Fashion Book, all signs point to … maybe. Carine famously fell out with Wintour in 2010, which resulted in her ousting from the editor-in-chief position at Vogue Paris, so to suggest that Kim has at long last ingratiated herself with the Vogue crowd would be a bit of a stretch. Still, the photos, shot while Kim was almost nine months pregnant, are nothing to shrug at — they were art-directed by close Kanye (and Carine) compadre Riccardo Tisci of Givenchy, and who worked the camera but Karl Lagerfeld himself? Not bad, Kim, not bad. Kanye’s infamous Tweet, forever memorialized on this holy grail of T-shirts, is starting to make that much more sense.

And the grills are just the beginning — check out the rest of the spread, including, yes, the belly shot, after the jump. [CelebuzzWWD] Keep reading »

As far as designers go, Karl Lagerfeld is notoriously loyal to his muses — for instance, while most brands will hold on to a spokesmodel for only a few years before ushering in the new guard, Karl has retained Keira Knightley as the face of Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle fragrance since 2006. Model monogamy is kind of his thing … so, with that in mind, expect to see Lagerfeld’s feline daughter/wife Choupette landing more magazine editorials than Kate Moss for the foreseeable future. (Okay, maybe not Moss, but you catch my drift.) She made her glossy debut last year in Harper’s Bazaar, followed shortly thereafter by a spread in V alongside Laetitia Casta. The stunning Siamese (we think) even landed the cover of Grazia Daily‘s September fashion issue. Now, the next installment in Choupette’s growing oeuvre is a starring role on the July 2013 cover of Vogue Germany, photographed by Karl himself. She and Linda Evangelista are looking preeeetty cozy — we wonder if there might be some surrogate cat-mom arrangements to be made? If only Linda were so lucky! [Huffington Post]

“My mother had changed the date [of my birthday]. It was easier to make a three or an eight. I learned after my mother died, and I do not know why she did it.”

— Why am I not all that surprised to learn that Karl Lagerfeld may not exactly know his real age? According to Wikipedia the Chanel designer is 79, but he had a 70th birthday bash in 2008, and now he’s reportedly revealed to Paris Match that he’s actually 77, and also something about a 3 or an 8. So. Inconclusive! Which is all the more reason to believe that he is not, in fact, human after all, right? [Fashionista]

Say what you will about (kooky/krazy/kreepy) Karl Lagerfeld, but when it comes to his creative directorial role at Chanel, the man is aces. Filmmaker Trevor Undi took Karl’s vision and interpreted it into this hypnotic 2 and a half-minute video comprised of clips from the French fashion house’s Paris-Édimbourg Métiers d’Art 2012/13 runway show, which took place in a castle in the Scottish highlands. Never before have runway-side iPhone photographers looked so, well, otherworldly. [Vimeo]

Serious question: does Karl Lagerfeld owe his notoriety more to his fashion design prowess or his very polarizing public persona? I’d say it’s a toss-up, but regardless, as far as Fashion People Fame Levels go, he ranks at the top of the charts. The delightfully bizarre Roberto Cavalli may be finding himself slightly envious of Karl’s larger-than-life media presence, because the eccentric Italian designer is throwing some major shade at the Chanel head honcho. He said of Lagerfeld in a recent interview, “Just because you are an artist you don’t have to dress like that. … He looks ridiculous.”

Interestingly, I don’t think they dress all that differently aside from the obvious disparity, which is that Roberto (at left) invariably appears to have bathed in a vat of self-tanner while Karl is pretty much white all over. Also, the former is rarely spotted in a fully-buttoned shirt. As you do! Listen, I say we settle the score with a fashion face-off… and I don’t mean Chanel vs. Cavalli. Let’s go, boys! (This will never happen.) [StyleBistro]
