Mais Oui!

Just last week, I was asking Rachel what Choupette has been up to lately. It’s been months since we’ve seen pictures of Karl Lagerfeld’s pampered kitten — last time was when she modeled in a 10-page editorial for V magazine with Laetitia Casta. But today the Internet Celebrity Cat Gods have sent us a macaron from heaven with a new short film for Chanel by Lagerfeld himself. Choupette herself doesn’t deign to make an appearance; I’ll let you watch and see for yourself how she appears.  [Fashionista]

“They let me do anything I want.”

― Is it any surprise that, while most other designers are subject to concerns of budgeting and other logical limitations, the House of Chanel (owned by the Wertheimer brothers) stops the inimitable Karl Lagerfeld at nothing? Suddenly, the spectacular runway shows ― the life-size plane in the Grand Palais, the 265-ton imported glacier, last week’s event in a roofless Scottish palace at the height of winter ― make that much more sense.

  • Well, that was fast: just weeks after beloved Balenciaga designer Nicolas Ghesquière departed the brand, Alexander Wang (shown here with Carine Roitfeld) has been placed as the head designer. This could spell trouble in endorsement paradise for Ghesquière’s friend (and face of Balenciaga fragrance Florabotanica) Kristen Stewart, as Wang vocally supported Liberty Ross earlier this year. [Refinery29]
  • Page Six talked to Calvin Klein’s former boy toy Nick Gruber (who, at 22, is 48 years his designer ex’s junior) about his relationship with Calvin and his upcoming memoir. Fair warning: it’s all pretty weird. [NY Post]
  • Kate Upton snagged her second international Vogue cover, this time for the prestigious glossy’s British version. Upton is inarguably finding success in all publications, but that doesn’t mean that Vogue UK editor Alexandra Shulman didn’t feel it necessary to explain her decision. [Gothamist]

Frisky Fun Time-Waster: Where’s Krazy Karl?

Color us weirdos, but we just love some Karl Lagerfeld. The head designer of Chanel is an inveterate freak, with his strangle-y leather gloves, diet of Diet Coke and cigarettes, and propensity for wearing sunglasses indoors (always).

Karl always sticks out in a crowd — or does he? See if you can spot Herr Lagerfeld in these cheeky Where’s Waldo?-themed photo puzzles.

It is fairly common knowledge that getting older directly corresponds with getting weirder. Karl Lagerfeld was pretty fucking weird to begin with, but now, at 79, I think it’s safe to say that the longtime Chanel designer is the weirdest. The Kaiser may not consider himself a “political person,” but he did take some interest in this year’s presidential election (didn’t everyone?), even awaking early the following day in anticipation of the results. “Inspired” by the subject of President Obama, Karl celebrated the Democratic win in the way he knows best: by illustrating the POTUS in chef whites (using Shu Uemura makeup, because duh) bearing a cake in the shape of the White House. The handwritten caption reads, in German: “The Biggest Chef in the World: 10 X 5 Stars.” I’m sure there must be something to this metaphor, but it is 100 percent lost on me. [WWD via The Gloss]

Oh, Karl Lagerfeld, have you ever smiled in your life? We understand there’s a lot of pressure when you’re Kaiser Karl, but hello — you’re hanging out with amazing R&B star Frank Ocean. That’s something to be happy about! Ocean and Karl struck a pose together at Karl and Carine Roitfeld’s launch for their Little Black Jacket Chanel exhibition.
