Herr Karl, Before He Was King

Back before Karl Lagerfeld was all leather and cigarettes and Diet Coke, he was a demure designer in a single-breasted coat. Seen here (far left) with a few models and fellow designer Yves St. Laurent, one could hardly imagine what would come. Keep reading »

Meet Karl Lagerfeld’s Chocolate Boy Toy

Karl Lagerfeld worships his muse/companion/cabana boy, Baptiste Giabiconi, so much that he made a likeness of him … out of chocolate. The edible man sculpture debuted in Paris as part of the marketing campaign for Magnum ice cream. Is that an ice cream bar in your tighty-whities or are you just happy to see me, Baptiste? I, too, believe I deserve a chocolate boy toy. Looks good, tastes good, doesn’t talk back. Does it really get any sweeter than that? [Gawker] Keep reading »

“I’m not very gifted for hairdos … I have someone who comes to the house and washes it, puts in the dry shampoo, and takes care if it because I have no time. I don’t even have time to go to the dentist.”

— Chanel’s Karl Lagerfeld is so fabulous he doesn’t even do his own tresses. Shampooing one’s own hair? How gauche! Next we are going to read that someone wipes his butt after the potty. [W Magazine] Keep reading »

Lagerfeld’s Bacchanalian Calendar Shoot Includes Man With Golden Bulge

For the 2011 Pirelli Calendar (an artsy annual that’s featured the original work of Richard Avedon, Annie Leibovitz, and Mario Testino, to name a few), Karl Lagerfeld took over as photographer to create a Grecian-inspired shoot. The photos recall an age of ancient decadence. Think: lots of ivy headdresses, sculpted Michelangelo-like bodies and minimally clothed trios.

And, of course, a man with a golden penis. See the slightly NSFW pic after the jump. [Trendland] Keep reading »

Karl Lagerfeld Teams Up With Macy’s?!

Love Karl Lagerfeld’s designs, but can’t actually afford Chanel or one of his eponymous collections? Well, you’re in luck because Uncle Karl is going to release a collection just for Macy’s. Yep, you read that right. Karl Lagerfeld plus Macy’s equals a mass collection that will include jeans, party dresses, and everything in between. The collection is slated for a 2011 release. This collaboration is quite shocking as Lagerfeld doesn’t seem like the type of person to even walk into a Macy’s. [Fashionista] Keep reading »
