Choupette Flies In The Cockpit, Loves “Looking At The Sky”

It's been nearly a month since we heard new and glamorous details about the life of Choupette, a "famous beauty" who is Karl Lagerfeld's kitten. Herr Karl spoke with the Independent UK and revealed more details about his finicky princess. Much like Karl himself (I imagine), Choupette is "moody," he says. "Choupette waits for me…

Karl Gets Kreative With Shu Uemura To Announce The Birth Of Mon Shu Girl

Well, that was quick! A little over a month ago, my personal Jesus, Karl Lagerfeld, announced plans to consummate the love that we've always known existed between him and Japanese beauty brand Shu Uemura. Karl's been known to use Shu products in an unorthodox way: rather than sketch out his sublime designs for Chanel i…

Martha Stewart Makes Karl Lagerfeld Look Normal In A Crazy Cat People Faceoff

Karl Lagerfeld vs. Martha Stewart: who is the stranger pet owner? It's a tough call. On one hand, we have Karl, whose Siamese cat (Choupette!) inspired a Chanel couture collection and has two personal maids who keep a diary on her behalf. On the other, we have Martha, who named her kittens Emperor Ch'in (after…

Move Over, Blake Lively, There’s A New Chanel Mews In Town … I Mean, Muse

Choupette Lagerfeld is my literal spirit animal in that she is, in fact, an animal, and also happens to really speak to my spirit, so there you have it. Just when I thought the gloriousness quotient of Karl's legendary Siamese had finally been capped due to overload, what with recent reports of a photoshoot and…

Choupette Lagerfeld’s Future As Model And Muse Is Looking Pretty Bright

There's a good chance that I am turning into a weird, babbling robot only capable of spewing out meaningless phrases like "Choupette," "pretty cat," and simply "meow." For example, when I learned this morning of the Chanel cat's big break, the noise I made could only be likened to a battle cry of sorts. That'…

The Cat’s Out Of The Bag! The Choupette Purse, Coming Soon To A Chanel Store Near You

I used to think I was the craziest cat lover alive, but Karl Lagerfeld is giving me a serious run for my money. The Chanel designer, exalted for his stern, stubborn approach to fashion, diet, not getting massages, and basically everything else ever, has been a bit more subdued since he acquired the famously beautiful…

Karl Lagerfeld Announces A Collaborative Makeup Line With Japanese Brand Shu Uemura

I know, I talk about Karl Lagerfeld all day long, but it's so hard not to when he can't stop, won't stop saying and doing things that baffle, offend, and inspire, often all at once. It's safe to say that you can file this next Karl update under something that's legitimately newsworthy, and not just…

Found! A Page From The Diary Of Choupette, Karl Lagerfeld’s Kitten

This morning we were delighted to learn more about our favorite celebrity kitten, Choupette. The fluffy Siamese kitten is the kept woman of eccentric Chanel fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld. Herr Karl revealed recently that Choupette takes her dinner on top of the table, plays with an iPad, and "has two personal maids, for both day…

Karl Lagerfeld’s Siamese Cat Choupette Has More Personal Maids Than You

Everyone I know is probably sick to death of hearing me talk about Karl Lagerfeld, because he is a bastard, but who could ever get tired of hearing about his Siamese cat, Choupette? Not us. Especially when he goes on at length in interviews about how spoiled she is. WWD sought out Karl at the…

Love The Smell Of Books? This Perfume Is For You

Are you a serious bookworm? Do you find the scent of the printed page borderline orgasmic? Are regular perfumes not quite paper-y enough for you? Sounds like you might want to check out Paper Passion, a new fragrance that smells like--you guessed it--books. Created by a master perfumer in collaboration with Wallpaper magazine, with packaging…

Karl Lagerfeld Hates Massages, Is Surprisingly In The Know About Hollywood Scandal

Karl Lagerfeld is known as much for making bizarre and inflammatory comments as he is for designing clothing. Let's recap: Adele is a little too fat for his liking. He loves Dominique Strauss-Kahn. He doesn't tolerate ugly children. He only likes high-class escorts, and doesn't like sleeping with people he really loves. He thinks the…

Karl Lagerfeld Tweets An Amazing Photo Of His Kitten, Choupette

I happen to think kuh-razy Karl Lagerfeld is the tops, most especially in a mankini, but for those who don't find his mercurial behavior quite as charming, here's something that's basically impossible not to get all mushy about: this morning, Karl (or his publicist) tweeted this photo of his adorable kitten, Choupette, playing on a…

Beth Ditto Opens A Can Of STFU On Karl Lagerfeld Over “Fat” Adele Comments

"I don’t think Adele would deny that she was fat. And I bet she doesn't. Karl Lagerfeld used to be fat himself, so you gotta think about that. He's obviously not proud of that fact. I also think that people give him way too much power! He's just an eccentric designer who makes amazing art…

Karl Lagerfeld’s Hotel Redesign Will Include Greek God-Inspired Frescoes Of Baptiste Giabiconi

Today in Karl Lagerfeld Is Really Weird: the silver-gloved fashion kaiser was recently appointed the new landscape planner of Monte-Carlo's sumptuously swanky Hôtel Métropole, which means he'll be redesigning the entirety of the hotel's exterior, including the pool, terrace, gardens, and a brand new restaurant by the Chef of the Century himself, Joël Robuchon. What…

Rare New Photos Of Karl Lagerfeld (In A Mankini!) Revealed

Karl Lagerfeld never struck me as the type of guy who would cheerfully don a mankini, but I was so wrong. A new biography of Antonio Lopez, famed fashion illustrator and friend of Lagerfeld who died of AIDS in 1987, features photos of such '70s icons as Halston and Liza Minnelli — even a young…

Flashback: Lindsay Lohan’s 2006 Interview Cover As Elizabeth Taylor

I'm just going to put it out there: Lindsay Lohan is no Elizabeth Taylor, and I, among others, find myself vaguely and inexplicably offended by Lifetime's decision to cast her as such. It pains me to see anyone fanning the flames of the formerly great young actress's delusions of grandeur, and being tapped to play…

A Lagerfeld Life In 24 Hours

I get such a kick out of Karl. After casually poking fun at, like, everyone who isn't Karl Lagerfeld last week, the kaiser is back and biting with a first-person Harper's Bazaar feature that documents his life in 24 hours. If you're sensitive to the shameless bourgeois, skip it, because I swear to god thi…

Karl Lagerfeld Puts His Gramercy Pad On The Market

If the three bedroom, 3.5 bathroom NYC apartment (in the Gramercy Park neighborhood in Manhattan) Karl Lagerfeld has put on the market for $5.2 million looks completely uninhabited, well, that's because it is. The German couturier never actually moved in to — and most likely never even spent a night in — the stunning airy…

Karl Lagerfeld Tries Daily Life On For Size

I can always count on Karl Lagerfeld to reassert just how much different his life is from the lives of us mere plebes. Rumors swirled this week after he suggested via Twitter that "we would see him like we'd never seen him before," and yesterday morning WWD came out with the details: the April issue…

Chanel Debuts Bedazzled Eyebrows On The Runway

Chanel is one of the biggest trendsetters season after season. After all, we're talking about the brand that made temporary tattoos chic. Global creative director of beauty Peter Philips is inarguably a makeup mastermind and his bedazzled eyebrows are nothing if not striking, but I pray that this latest venture will not be the next…
