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]…

The news today from fashion giant Karl Lagerfeld: The Kaiser directed a short film, and the preview has just hit the web (the man sure does know how to build anticipation).

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…

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,…

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…

Karl Lagerfeld Styles Designer Doppelgangers For Harper’s Bazaar

Karl Lagerfeld is the self-proclaimed king of the snooty, self-centered fashion world. At times, it seems like he lives to make aspiring fashionistas feel inadequate. (Maybe he does? Who knows.)

Would You Tattoo Yourself With Double-C’s?

In our A.D.D.-addled generation, the ability to easily change your look -- from your outfit to your hair -- is necessary.
