Fake Karl’s Advice For Coping With The Recession

Sure, the recession has hit us normal people hard. But no one, according to Fake Karl, has it quite as bad as the wealthy fashionistas and fashionistos out there. Karl has decided to take it upon himself to instruct the rich on “how to do things” so they can get by. Since all of us could use a refresher course on “things,” first up in Karl’s Guide To Doing Things For The Rich has a hilarious rundown on supermarkets. Here, a few basics:

Karl Lagerfeld, Coke Addict

Karl Lagerfeld teamed up with Coca-Cola to make a limited edition package to be sold at Colette, and not a thing about it surprises us. Naturally, he’d only elect to associate himself with Diet Coke, considering his no-fatties-allowed rules. And of course, he’d make the design an homage to himself. Can’t say the man doesn’t stick to his guns. Do you love Uncle K so much that you would pay $5 for something you could just as easily buy for 99 cents? Die-hard fans can purchase the $80 boxed set (no joke) which comes with one bottle of Lagerfeld’s Coca Cola Light, an impressive display box, and a bottle opener. Ca-ching! If you’re interested, Colette is also counting your calories in another new way this month, with a lunch box program in Paris. On the menu: Vitamin and carrot sticks. Om nom nom.

Who Needs This Much Luggage?

Karl Lagerfeld likes his possessions in multiples. He has so many iPods that he’s hired an iPod nanny, but now it would seem that he needs a luggage minder as well. The brilliant designer checked out of his New York City hotel room to head back home and paparazzi snapped pictures of his exorbitant number of suitcases–14 in total. Now, for a man who dresses in practically the exact same thing every day, it’s not exactly clear as to why he needs quite so many pieces of luggage. Let’s just hope these 14 cases hold the latest Chanel collection. Apparently, Lagerfeld has never heard of the phrase “pack light.” [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

Karl Lagerfeld On Burqas, Celebrity Status, & Adoption

Here’s the thing about fashion. Sometimes dreams do come true. Just yesterday, blogger Bryan Boy was invited to visit Vogue, and in the newest issue of Vice magazine, Canadian writer Bruce LaBruce was invited by the glossy to fly out to Paris to spend an hour and a half with the sunglassed designer, Karl Lagerfeld. In between questions about his personality, life choices, and celebrity status, Karl equates his sunglasses to a burqa, discusses the fact that he’d rather give money to a specific child’s family than adopt and disrupt their home life, talks about how he only eats meat once a week on orders from his doctor, shares info about his fax relationship with Anna Wintour, and admits that he has one person on staff dedicated to delivering letters. Every day. The full interview is published in a Q&A form, and we highly suggest stopping what you’re doing in order to read the quotes in their entirety. [Vice] Keep reading »

Quotable: Karl Lagerfeld Has Nothing But Respect For Porn Stars

“I admire porn … And I personally only like high-class escorts. I don’t like sleeping with people I really love. I don’t want to sleep with them because sex cannot last, but affection can last forever. I think this is healthy. And for the way the rich live, this is possible. But the other world, I think they need porn. I also think it’s much more difficult to perform in porn than to fake some emotion on the face as an actor.”

Is This The New Face Of Chanel?

There’s a rumor flying around that the fashion world is calling “huge.” After Tommy Ton of style blog Jak & Jil got a supposedly juicy tip—”I received some news tonight that is going to SHAKE the fashion world in the next two days. CRAZY!!!”—the speculation commenced. The general consensus: That Lanvin designer Alber Elbaz would be replacing Karl Lagerfeld as head designer at Chanel. B-b-but … will he be as mean, ironic, and kooky as Uncle K? What if we can never laugh at or make fun of Chanel again? (We’d live, we suppose.) [Grazia Australia] Keep reading »

Performance Art Protester Crashes Lagerfeld Fashion Show

During Paris Fashion Week, the Jardin des Tuileries is a prime people-gazing spot where street-style photographers flock to snap the chic-set exiting the tents. But when a performance artist headed there on Sunday, getting recognized by the Sartorialist wasn’t on her agenda. Rather, she came in silent protest of the industry’s promotion of too-thin beauty ideals. Laying on the ground with posters reading “Size Zero Kills,” she painted her face white and dressed herself in trash bags, black mesh eye coverings, and Chanel ballet flats.
