Pinko philosopher Karl Marx, Star Trek stud Karl Urban, and fabulous fashion folk hero Karl Lagerfeld are about as different as any three men who ever lived, but if there is one thing the three Karls have in common it's their strong opinions on how the world should work!
Mr. Urban wants us all to know that he's a doctor, dammit, and not a torpedo technician!
Mr. Marx wants us to abandon capitalism and the bloated bourgeois oppressors it enables!
And Mr. Lagerfeld? Well, he wants us to know that selfies are stupid. Just plain STUPID.
While waxing poetical about Cara Delevingne recently, the great German designer took a moment to poke fun at selfies!!!
Karl Lagerfeld is such an enigma!
The Chanel designer’s latest obsession (other than himself) seems to be Cara Delevingne — he talks about her all the time, she’s closed out a ton of his runways, and they hold hands constantly.
However, he recently gave the model a compliment that was kind of insulting! He said:
Karl Lagerfeld is basically an expert when it comes to models.
He’s seen many come and go through the industry, and additionally, he's constantly around them during fashion shows and photo shoots!
So his high praise of model Cara Delevingne is kind of huge!!
He described the often goofy gal by comparing her to one of the greatest comedians ever AND one of today's greatest models, saying:
Where does he find the time???
Karl Lagerfeld must be the most energetic and busiest 80-year-old on the planet!
Not only does he design four full collections for Chanel and Fendi every year, but in his spare time (whenever THAT is!), he even dabbles in interior design!
The Chanel creative directive has previously designed rooms in Paris' Hotel de Crillon, but now he's getting a much bigger project in Macau, China, by signing a deal to design all 270 rooms in a hotel in the city.
It's the perfect project for Unkle Karl, who loves to decorate his own homes, but doesn't want to buy anymore. He explained:
Cara Delevingne has been stoooopid busy this past week.
We seriously don’t know how she does it!!
But after tracking her movements through London Fashion Week, the Elle Style Awards, and Milan Fashion Week, we’re pretty convinced that Cara had the best week ever.

Once again, it seems like these two can’t bear to be apart!!
After spending a scandalous night in a limo with girlfriend Michelle Rodriguez, Cara Delevingne went right back to work at Milan Fashion Week as if nothing ever happened.
On Thursday, the heavily-browed model walked the Fendi show touting a miniature Karl Lagerfeld like the sexy strutter she is — but she didn’t attend the show alone!!
Just like during Paris Fashion Week, Cara kept Michelle as close as possible for as long as possible. The two hung out backstage while Cara got her makeup done, and then naturally left together after the presentation.
Think Michelle got lucky on the ride home like last time??
We hope so!!

We were wondering how Kristen Stewart’s dislike of fancy clothes would jive with her new position as the face of Chanel’s Métiers d’Art Paris-Dallas collection, but it seems like we have an answer!
She’ll simply wear Chanel's finest casual-wear most of the time. Brilliant!!!
The 23-year-old actress was spotted leaving her hotel in Paris today, where she’s staying to work on her upcoming campaign with Karl Lagerfeld.
KStew was decked out in Chanel garb, rocking a navy blue sweatshirt from the brand along with a Chanel backpack and purse. And her shoes looked like a fancy version of her fave Converse sneakers!
She obvi hasn’t let Chanel alter her personal sense of style TOO much, LOLz!
