The Karl Lagerfeld Robot Manages To Say Something Offensive And Weird, Again!

For some reason, the French put Karl Lagerfeld in charge of the Paris edition of the Metro yesterday, giving the Chanel designer free reign to say whatever ridiculous thing he pleases. Herr Karl's made such a habit of ridiculousness -- claiming the best way to stay thin is by chain-smoking and downing Diet Coke and consomme…

Evening Quickies: Brad Pitt Says Angelina Is Still “A Bad Girl,” Plus, Paz De La Huerta Out At “Boardwalk Empire”

Brad Pitt says that Angelina Jolie is still a bad girl. "Delightfully so. It's not for public consumption," he revealed in his usual sort of TMI way. [People] Paz de la Huerta won't be returning for season three of "Boardwalk Empire." Was it cause she blabbed spoilers to the press? [TV…

Karl Lagerfeld Outdoes Himself (Again)

I await each Chanel show with bated breath, thrilled at the prospect of Karl Lagerfeld's latest blowout. Need you be reminded, he notoriously flew a 265-ton glacier imported from Sweden to the venue of his Autumn/Winter 2010 show. For the Spring/Summer show that preceded it, he turned the runway into a massive barn, replete with…

Karl Lagerfeld Has A Kitten Named Choupette

Karl Lagerfeld isn't exactly warm, fuzzy and cuddly , but dang, his new kitten is! Herr Karl adopted a new kitty, named Choupette (a French term of endearment), which is also what Herbie the Love Bug was nicknamed in those "Herbie" movies. The idea of Karl having a sweet little kitten seems quite at odds with…

Karl Lagerfeld Sticks Up For Dominique Strauss-Kahn

"I love DSK [the former head of the IMF who was accused of sexually assaulting a New York City hotel maid]. I love his wife. They are great people and when they came back to Paris I sent them flowers. But you know, for people in politics, it's very embarrassing. On the left…

Karl Lagerfeld Does Not Abide Ugly Children

"Yes, no one can say that you don't take care of them. You're also lucky because they are very beautiful. It would have been difficult to have an ugly daughter."--Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld, speaking to former French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld, on the wonders of rearing children. Oh, Karl, if you had an ugly child,…

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.

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…

Karl Lagerfeld Doesn’t Wash His Own Hair

"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…

Karl Lagerfeld Tries To Sell Some Ice Cream

Somehow, it seems fitting that Karl Lagerfeld, the man who invented a diet plan consisting mainly of Diet Coke and cigarettes, should be directing a high-camp commercial for an ice cream brand. Watch this hilarious commercial directed by Herr Karl and starring Rachel Bilson and Baptiste Giabiconi. [YouTube]…

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…

What Would You Do If You Found Karl Lagerfeld’s Diamond Brooch?

Imagine for a moment the following scenario: you are at a party with Karl Lagerfeld. (Like we said, imagine.) And sometime along the course of the evening you find a vintage Chanel diamond brooch on the floor that belongs to Mr. Lagerfeld. Would you turn it in? Or keep the goody as your…

Sure, Why Not: Give Uncle Karl An Island To Design

The fashion world is once again spreading rumors that Karl Lagerfeld will retire from Chanel. Why do people care and why does this rumor resurface so often? Because it's Chanel. And where do you go when you're already at the top? Since Karl is famous for topping himself year after year with hi…

Diane von Furstenberg just announced that she'll be launching a new fragrance, cosmetics, and skin care line this year. We predict punchy colors will reign.

Quick Video: Karl Lagerfeld Has “Shopping Fever”

Hello kids, and welcome back to the weird world of Karl Lagerfeld shorts. "Shopping Fever," his latest concoction, follows in the vein of his previous shorts in that it's more or less Chanel porn with a limited storyline. That said, Abby Lee and Dree Hemingway look gorgeous and we'd happily…

Karl Lagerfeld Cleans Up … Creepily

Karl Lagerfeld recently shot a campaign for a French mail-order catalog called Les 3 Suisses. We're not sure what a black washing machine doing a load of Karl's own head (we think?) has to do with anything ... but it sure is freaking us out. [WWD]…
