Unkle Karl Had A Fan & Wasn't Afraid To Use It!

karl-largerfeld-hit-employees-with-fans-according-to-julien-macdonald.jpg

We always thought Karl Lagerfeld to be the crotchety type and this proves it.

Designer Julien Macdonald recalls how Unkle K would smack an employee with his fan if they were being difficult.

The 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."

Ha!

So that explains why he's always wearing gloves, so he won't damage his gifted little hands while bitch slapping a worker.

Models Past & Present Hit Up Chanel

It was a packed house at the Chanel fashion show on Tuesday and many of them were faces of the Parisian fashion house.

Karl Lagerfeld's long time fave, Claudia Schiffer was in attendance wearing a more casual outfit. Naturally she repped the fashion house around her neck with a large double C necklace.

Newcomers Keira Knightley and Vanessa Paradis both came looking chic in their ensemble complete with Chanel jackets.

We were most surprised to see Lily Allen at the show since she was fired for being a drunken mess.

Maybe Unkle Karl knew she wouldn't be drinking now that she's pregnant.

And then there was Rachel Bilson. We think she'd look a lot better if her hair wasn't 5 different colors, but at least it matches her dress.

Who do U think was best dressed???

This is unexpected.

Karl Lagerfeld has 86ed the runway show for his eponymous line, less than a month before the Paris Fashion Week event.

Unkle K says he canceled the October 3rd show in order to focus on a more affordable ready to wear collection for Masstige.

Inneresting.

Lets hope he made the right decision.

On Tuesday, Karl Lagerfeld presented his newest haute couture creations at the Chanel runway show in Paris.

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.

So chic!

What do U think of the collection???

Unkle K Poses For The Common Folk

How kind of him.

Karl Lagerfeld recently 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."

The Chanel and 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.

Have A Drink With Unkle K!

Unkle Karl wants the world to buy a Coke. Because he's on the bottle!

French retailer Colette is hawking this $5 bottle of Coca Cola Light that features the Chanel icon's silhouette.

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!

Would U buy a bottled up Unkle Karl???
