20 Things Karl Lagerfeld Hates

20 Things Karl Lagerfeld Hates

This week we learned that Karl Lagerfeld hates Michelle Obama‘s new bangs, despite otherwise being a huge fan of “Madame Obama,” indicating (once again) that the only thing Lagerfeld loves more than insulting random people is couching faint praise in backhanded compliments. In the wake of his recent mouth-running scandals–with Adele and Pippa Middleton–we decided to take stock of the Chanel designer’s long and storied history of hating stuff. So, here’s a bunch of Karl Lagerfeld quotes pertaining to all the things he dislikes, including but not limited to ugly babies, babies in general, Greek people and the smell of food. More »

Gallery: Carine Roitfeld's New Magazine Is Way More Adorable Than We Thought It Would Be

Former French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld‘s hotly anticipated new magazine CR Fashion Book comes out next week, and photos are already making their way onto the web. From the looks of them, it’s going to be a good bit more adorable than anything Roitfeld oversaw at French Vogue; it’s got baby animals, fairy tales, the hot but unpopular Kate Upton, and only a weensy bit of nudity. The theme, Roitfeld says, is “rebirth,” which was no doubt inspired by Roitfeld becoming a grandmother for the first time, as well as the “rebirth” of her own career following her departure from a high profile job. Let’s take a look at some of the cute, bizarre, and lovely images that have been released so far. More »

Gallery: Choupette Lagerfeld Co-Stars With Laetitia Casta In BDSM (And Bestiality?) Themed V Editorial

Yesterday, I told you about how fashion has surrendered to the Internet by agreeing to put cats in everything. Well, here is an example of that. In the latest issue of high fashion glossy V, Choupette Lagerfeld (please note that she’s not “Karl Lagerfeld’s cat” anymore) gets equal billing with Victoria’s Secret model and FACE OF FRANCE Laetitia Casta in a vaguely creepy BDSM-themed editorial shot by the Kaiser, himself. And before you get righteously mad at me, know that I don’t think it’s creepy because of the BDSM, but because it seems we’re supposed to believe Choupette and Laetitia are performing BDSM on each other. In front of Choupette’s dad, no less. But what’s a bit of incestuous bestiality when there are clicks to be had? TEH INTERNETZ PWN AGAIN. More »

Karl Lagerfeld’s Cat Lives A Better, Fuller Life Than All Of Us (Continued)

Karl Lagerfeld's Cat Lives A Better, Fuller Life Than All Of Us (Continued)

We were all surprised a few months ago to learn that Karl Lagerfeld did not, in fact, have a robot heart (or that he downloaded some sort of compassion program) because he went and got a kitten. The initial photo was cute and people fawned over it because this is the internet and you know how it feels about cats. But, little did we know that the kitten would become Choupette, the iPad-using, two maid-having star of editorials in I-D and now a feature in Harper’s Bazaar. More »

If it seems like the fashion blogosphere can’t get enough of Karl Lagerfeld‘s ridiculously pampered cat Choupette, it’s probably because she is a perfect storm of things the Internet likes: conspicuous consumption, crazy people (specifically: The Kaiser), and cute baby animals. The latest issue of i-D Magazine decided to feed the beast a little bit more with a nice, big feature on the tiny creature, who appears in all her various modes of being. The only way young Choupette could be any more stoked about this momentous career milestone would be if she knew what the fuck “a magazine” was. More »
