We always thought
to be the crotchety type and this proves it. Karl Lagerfeld
Julien Macdonald recalls how Unkle K would smack an employee with his fan if they were being difficult.
Britain's Next Top Model judge, who like Karl doesn't care for fat chics, explains:
"He used to carry around an old fashioned black fan and when you were being difficult he'd hit you with it. He'd taunt you then hit you with it - it was all done in a joking way and never done very hard, but I do remember it quite clearly. It was his alternative to a stick I suppose. Now Karl's signature is his silver jewellery but then it was these specially crafted fans. I'm quite glad I had to deal with the fans and not the jewellery. You'd get knocked out if he jokingly hit you with any of those."
So that explains why he's always wearing gloves, so he won't damage his gifted little hands while bitch slapping a worker.

and Keira Knightley both came looking chic in their ensemble complete with Chanel jackets. Vanessa Paradis
We were most surprised to see
at the show since she was fired for being a drunken mess. Lily Allen
Maybe Unkle Karl knew she wouldn't be drinking now that she's pregnant.
And then there was
. We think she'd look a lot better if her hair wasn't 5 different colors, but at least it matches her dress. Rachel Bilson

presented his newest haute couture creations at the Karl Lagerfeld runway show in Paris. Chanel
For this season, Unkle K traded in the imported
icebergs for a gigantic lion and furs with floral prints and sparkles.
The pieces are definitely different and more wearable than others, but that's haute couture for you. And we can definitely see celebs lining up to wear that tuxedo outfit.
What do U think of the collection???

How kind of him.
recently Karl Lagerfeld dabbled in fast fashion by photographing and posing for the mail order catalog 3 Suisses.
And get this, Unkle Karl actually likes the idea of lower priced fashion and may even get around to designing some himself. Lagerfeld reveals:
"My dream is to turn the whole house of Lagerfeld into this kind of [mass] business, because I am at the peak of luxury."
and Chanel Fendi designer also talked about his fascination with washing machines after posing on one for the catalog.
Karl oddly mentioned "It is so chic and pretty. I would like to have one — not to wash clothes but to put in my dressing room to hold my dirty laundry."
Such a quirky guy, that Unkle K.

wants the world to buy a Coke. Because he's on the bottle! Unkle Karl
is hawking this $5 bottle of Colette Coca Cola Light that features the icon's silhouette. Chanel
The high fashion bottle comes in a limited edition box that includes a bottle-opener hidden in a secret compartment.
Not bad for $5. And it's probably the cheapest thing you'll ever find that has Karl's name attached to it!
