I’ve always loved Karl Lagerfeld and with that love comes the acceptance of the Kaiser’s controversial attitude, but there are times when everyone, even Karl goes too far.


A fan of Adele? So is Karl…sort of.
Karl was recently quoted as saying “The thing at the moment is Adele. She is a little too fat, but she has a beautiful face and a divine voice.” 

I’m sure she’ll be touched. May I remind you Karl that you “hid” behind a fan for years?

What else did Lagerfeld tell The Metro?

“Nobody wants Greece to disappear, but they have really disgusting habits — Italy as well.”

“If I was a woman in Russia I would be a lesbian, as the men are very ugly.”

“People in magazines are 50% bimbo and 50% pregnant women.”

“I’m a big fan of Mrs. Obama — and her face, I think, is magical. He would not be there without her. Mrs. Obama is not a fashion statement, but she has other things to do. My favorite thing about Mrs Obama was when she was asked if her skirt was not too tight and she answered “Why you don’t like my big black ass?” I want [Barack] Obama to win because there is nothing better anyway, and especially because of her.”

Always keeping things interesting. Oh by the way, Mrs. Obama apparently never said anything of the sort, but than Karl wouldn’t be Karl, would he?

Kristen Stewart was seen posing for Mario Testino in Paris for a Vanity Fair spread in something a little different from the norm.

Stewart later caught up with Karl Lagerfeld. Let’s hope that finger is for someone else or else he should take it…literally.

If you have seen previews for the upcoming movie Anonymous, you have more than likely seen Edward de Vere, the 17th Earl of Oxford, better known as actor Rhys Ifans.

You may be surprised as to what the inspiration for Ifans character was.

When I found out Karl Lagerfeld was doing a line for Macy’s I almost had a seizure.

Then I saw it.

I gotta admit, I’m pretty disappointed with the Kaiser. However, if any of these looks catch your fancy, the 45-piece collection will be available at Macy’s stores and online Aug. 31 and ranges from $50-$170.
