Karl Says Fur Is For Rich People

wenn2766726_e.jpg

If you're not rich and own fur, you are making a big fashion faux pas in the shaded eye of Karl Lagerfeld.

Unkle K recently shared his thoughts about fur with Vice magazine, saying:

"If you cannot afford it, just forget about it. Don't use it as an investment piece to show people how rich you are. Use it like a cheap knitted thing. It's like a big stone. Lucky you that you can have a big stone, but if it troubles you financially to have the stone, don't have the stone. If you can afford it, OK. But if you think it's an investment, then forget about it."

Karl also explains his use of fake fur, adding "I don't like that people butcher animals, but I don't like them to butcher humans either, which is apparently very popular in the world."

Oh, Unkle K, you and your logic never ceases to amaze us.

Karl Lagerfeld May Announce His Successor Soon!!!

wenn_abaca_karl_alber_e.jpg

Could it really be happening?

According to Grazia Australia, there's about to be an announcement that will rock the fashion world in the next few days.

But what could it be?

They speculate that Unkle Karl could be announcing his successor at Chanel. The fashion world has been whispering for some time now that it will be Lanvin's Alber Elbaz.

Wait a minute!

Didn't Karl say back in November he had no plans of retiring soon since he believes the fashion house will still need him until he's 89!?

For now, we'll take this rumor as a grain of salt and wait for the so called mayjah announcement.

Chanel, On Ice

We don't think Karl Lagerfeld understands the concept of global warming.

The Chanel designer put on quite the production at the Fall 2010 fashion show in Paris on Tuesday.

The models were dressed as if they were preparing for a nuclear winter as they strutted their stuff down the watery runway drenched in sometimes head to toe faux fur.

And this season it looks like Karl's bringing back those furry Sasquatch knee high boots that cheap go-go dancers wear while trying to make a buck.

The pièce de résistance of the entire show wasn't the fashion, but rather the background the designs walked in front of. Lagerfeld had a 265-ton 'berg imported from Sweden! Because really, what isn't a show without a giant iceberg!?

Karl may be krazy with a 'k', but he sure does know how to put on a show!

What do U think of the collection???

A big congrats is in order for our favorite Unkle!

Karl Lagerfeld is going to be made commander of the French Legion of Honor, the equivalent of being honored by the Queen of England.

No date for the ceremony has been set, but we're sure Unkle K will be there in style!
