Choupette Is Back … Sort Of

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

Karl Lagerfeld Has Free Reign At Chanel

“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

This Week In Style: Alexander Wang Replaces Ghesquière At Balenciaga

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…

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…

Karl Lagerfeld Is Either Getting Progressively Weirder Or Just Screwing With Us

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…

Karl Lagerfeld Sulks While Posing With Frank Ocean

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

Karl Lagerfeld Got Arrested In France For Wearing A Burqa

“Karl Lagerfeld decided to come to my ball in Paris [for French Vogue’s 90th anniversary] dressed in a burqa so he wouldn’t be recognized … he was arrested outside.”
― I’m still reeling from the two things I just learned about Karl Lagerfeld, straight from the legendary mouth of former Vogue Paris EIC (and newly-crowned…

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…

Karl Lagerfeld Says It’s “Ridiculous” To Suggest Anorexic Girls In Fashion Industry Are A Problem

“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…

Watch: Karl Lagerfeld Meets A Cat Named After Him On French TV

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

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.

Karl Knows Klass: Operation Lagerfeld Is Now In Motion

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…

Karl Lagerfeld Wants You To Know What He Really Meant To Say About Pippa

“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…

First Look: Keira Knightley Wears A Weird Chanel Armwarmer For October’s “Vogue”

Isn’t it nice to see Keira Knightley’s pretty face adorning multiple magazine covers rather than someone like, say, Kim Kardashian? I jest, kind of, and I do know a few people who maintain that Keira is only marginally more talented than the reality star in question … but regardless, she’s definitely more likable. I’ll be…

First Look: The First Issue Of Carine Roitfeld’s New Magazine Goes Public

It took hardly any time at all for Carine Roitfeld to find her footing outside of the Condé Nast empire. The fashion writer and stylist departed suddenly from Vogue Paris in 2010 following a ten-year tenure as editor-in-chief, citing a desire to concentrate on personal projects outside of the notorious magazine’s “gilded bird cage” (though…

Laetitia Casta On Modeling With Karl Lagerfeld’s Cat Choupette

“So we are shooting on this balcony in front of the Eiffel Tower in Paris and I was so fucking scared that Choupette would step back and fall off and that Karl would hate me forever because I killed his cat. The cat was like, ‘maaaiooowarrgh’ and I was like, ‘gasp.’ I did everything with…

Choupette Makes Her Modeling Debut Alongside Laetitia Casta In September’s “V”

Another day, another Choupette headline! Karl Lagerfeld’s famous feline is getting more press than the Kaiser himself these days, and with a face like that, who could complain? V is the latest magazine to feature the esteemed Siamese model, who has apparently signed with one of the world’s top agencies — and in her first-ever…

Choupette Lagerfeld Is Back With A Photoshoot And More Details From Her Luxurious Life

And just when you thought you had heard the last from me regarding Choupette Lagerfeld, you were so woefully wrong! Allow me to explain myself: cat love is my number one interest and priority above all other things, and I also really adore the kooky Chanel designer’s flippantly offensive attitude, despite my awareness of the…

Anna Piaggi, Italian Fashion Editor And Style Innovator, Dies At 81

Today is a sad day in fashion as we mourn the loss of Anna Piaggi, 81, the celebrated Italian fashion journalist and glamorously eccentric sartorial icon best recognized for her visionary double-page spreads of image and text in Vogue Italia.

Karl Lagerfeld Has Opinions About Pippa Middleton’s Face

“Kate Middleton has a nice silhouette and she is the right girl for that boy. I like that kind of woman, I like romantic beauties. On the other hand, her sister struggles. I don’t like the sister’s face. She should only show her back.”
— Gee, Karl Lagerfeld, tell us how you really feel.
