Karl Lagerfeld Photographs Victoria Beckham In Chanel’s Iconic Paris Home

It’s not every day that Karl Lagerfeld deems a fashionista worthy of being photographed in Coco Chanel’s iconic former Paris home at 31 Rue Cambon, so it’s kind of remarkable that he chose Victoria Beckham over someone like, say, Blake Lively. I totally thought Blake was his dress-up doll of choice these days. I do have to hand it to Posh for her seamless transition from Spice Girl and football WAG into a well-respected style icon and designer; there aren’t many former pop stars who ever enjoy the same level of high-fashion success. Victoria tweeted photos this week from a recent shoot for Elle France, where she appears alongside Lagerfeld modeling pieces from her new eyewear collection. What she doesn’t model, however, is pants, and that is completely understandable — if my legs looked like that, I wouldn’t wear pants, either. [Celebitchy]

“I’m sorry to say that it’s a subject I consider ridiculous for several reasons; the story with the anorexic girls — nobody works with anorexic girls, that’s nothing to do with fashion. People who have that [anorexia] have problems to do with family and things like that. … There are less than 1 per cent of anorexic girls, but there more than 30 percent of girls in France — I don’t know about England — that are much, much overweight. And it is much more dangerous and very bad for the health … So I think today with the junk food in front of the TV it’s something dangerous for the health of the girl.”

Here’s the thing with Karl Lagerfeld‘s denial-is-not-just-a-river-in-Egypt comments on Britain’s Channel 4 News. He’s right that anorexia is a mental illness which cannot be attributed to just one factor. He’s also correct that unhealthy eating is also bad. And he’s even got a point, sort of, about the fashion industry not wanting to work with anorexic “girls.” The fashion industry isn’t necessarily employing “normal-sized” women who are anorexic; they are employing women who are rail-thin with androgynous, boyish frames as well as young teen/tween girls whose bodies are practically prepubescent. There is a reason why there has been a huge controversy with the CFDA regarding designers who employ models under the age of 16. So, in a sense, Lagerfeld does have a valid point that can be teased out of this quote. But his snotty comments about Adele being “fat” and overall dismissiveness/lack of responsibility towards eating disorders in his industry is enraging. Choupette, I’ll always love, but I am officially done with Karl Lagerfeld. [Telegraph UK]

Miaou à tous!

Just one time won’t do; you’re going to have to watch this video at least twice before you can even begin to comprehend what’s going on … and maybe not even then. Karl Lagerfeld graced French television Monday night as a guest on talk show Le Grand Journal and, naturellement, the subject arose of le chat Choupette. An admirer takes the opportunity to praise Karl’s love of cats, then proceeds to shock the Chanel designer by turning the camera to his own pet, Chat Lagerfeld. We soon discover that Chat Lagerfeld may not, in fact, be a cat at all. At all. The Kaiser is not amused. (But he totally is.) [The Cut]

The Beautiful And The Boring From Chanel Fine Jewelry Anniversary Party

Let’s talk about Places I Wish I Had Been Last Night: Chanel fêted the 80th anniversary of their “Bijoux De Diamants” collection here in New York and, as one can always anticipate from an occasion hosted by the illustrious French fashion house, a host of starlets and socialites alike showed up in their Lagerfeld finest. Let’s take a look at the best (and slightly questionably)-dressed of the elite crowd…

Attention, wanton young ladies everywhere (shit, are they talking about me?): Chanel is coming for you, and it isn’t going to be pretty. Well, maybe not quite, but police in the British town of Bolton are laying down the law with Operation Lagerfeld, a zero-tolerance plan targeting teenage girls “drinking in the streets in the early hours of the morning.” Before anyone cries slut-shaming, I think it’s pretty clear that the intention of this scheme is to keep said girls safe, because as town sergeant Dave Tann explains, “They are vulnerable and could become the victim of a serious crime.” It’s only natural that they bring Karl’s name into the mess, because really, who better to instill a touch of modesty in young libertines than the arbiter of class himself, who’s been known to occasionally advise that certain women should only show their backsides?

“I didn’t mean that! I only meant I don’t think her makeup is right; she has a roundish face and round eyes and she should pick another makeup for the eyes.”

Karl Lagerfeld attempts to clarify his comments regarding Pippa Middleton after they were apparently misconstrued. The Kaiser professed not long ago that Pippa “should only show her back,” but he insists that isn’t really what he meant! For the record, he just loves Duchess Kate, but that doesn’t mean she’s his pick of the bunch… Keep reading »
