I’m not going to pretend that I know anything about fashion.

I shop at the same stores in the mall.

I like classic clothes.

I wear a lot of black, white, and gray.

I’m not super adventurous and fashion forward.

And I’m really not going to pretend that I get runway fashion.

Most of it is over the top, and it all looks like art more than clothes.

There is one exception though.

Chanel.

By Karl Lagerfeld.

The man can make some clothes.

These pics are from last week at Paris Fashion week.

I strongly feel as if I need this dress in my life.

Someone, please make it happen for me.

Please?

I, in no way, have the legs to pull of this look but goshdarnitall, I love this outfit.

And can we please acknowledge those shoes.

Dying.

Love them.

Oh my Jackie O.

Classic.

Pink.

Feminine.

Beautiful.

Karl Lagerfeld is undoubtedly a fashion genius, but he is a strange, strange man.

If ever you see any magazine, newspaper, or online source boasting of an interview with Karl, drop what you are doing and immediately read it.

You will never feel more normal in your life.

Here are a couple of riveting excerpts from a fairly recent interview with Karl in Vice.

Karl communicates via fax and courier service- no phones. What the heck?

“People I’m really friendly with have faxes. Anna Wintour has one. We speak via fax. And in Paris I send letters to people. I have somebody to deliver letters all over every day.”

Karl doesn’t like people droning on about charities:

“(Being politically correct) means people talking about charities. Do it, be charitable, but don’t make a subject of conversation out of it because then you bore the world to death. It’s very unpleasant. But I don’t go out a lot so I’m not so exposed to people.”

And then there is this quote on intimacy. Wowzer:

And I personally only like high-class escorts. I don’t like sleeping with people I really love. I don’t want to sleep with them because sex cannot last, but affection can last forever. I think this is healthy. And for the way the rich live, this is possible. But the other world, I think they need porn.”

So, maybe Karl doesn’t offer words to live by, but he sure can make some pretty clothes.

Have a great day my friends!

XO,
Leah
