We Have An Illustrated Job Offer For You, Lily Allen!

How much of a drunk can you be if you want to be friends with Karl Lagerfeld? Kind of a drunk, but not really a drunk. At least according to Lily Allen. He recently let her go from the Chanel campaign because he thought she was “too much of a party girl” (bear in mind here that Karl Lagerfeld loves both Lindsay Lohan and Kate Moss). But he intitially found her charming drunken ways completely adorable! And sketchworthy! According to Elle UK (and Styleite):

“It was at a big party in Coco’s apartments in Paris. I was drunk and got lost in the building. I wandered into an attic room and Karl was there. I got really embarrassed and apologized, but he said, ‘No, come in.’ We had a chat — although I can’t remember what about, I was so drunk. I do remember asking him about some shoes he’d designed that had a green ring in the heel [from Chanel's Fall 2009 collection]. I asked how they worked. He drew a diagram explaining the physics of making the shoe. I’ve still got the drawing. A week later I was asked to do the campaign.”

Umm, yeah, that’s the big-bag-of-Aspergers Karl we know and love. But then he let her go? Not cool! Lily Allen, I have a little proposition for you which I tried to illustrate with paintshop, because, Jesus, Allie Brosh is totally going to get a six figure book deal and I am not. Come work for us. We will give you things. Happy things like this (this shoe took five tries, okay?):

    That shoe was suppose to be a replica of the Alexander McQueen Armadillo shoe, right? Right.
