Karl looks so cool as always. Rock on! But that woman’s shades are way too big, even if they are supposed to look big. They do not math her face-contours at all. But apart from that she looks very chic.
Why do Karl always look exactly the same? Ok, he’s stylish, very stylish (hundred times more than my granfather in the same age) but, no, he’s just too much of everything. It’s always nice when old people wants to follow the young, but he feels like he thinks he’s still 20.
wow you found him!! i know that mr. lagerfield takes beaucoup photos, but every time i see one it seems as if the photog had to go on a secret ops mission just to get it…he’s very “rogue” i love it!!!!
Well, to carry the ball a bit–or to spin the thread–in response to My Fall Collection’s post: yes, I think that there IS such a thing as age-appropriate dress, though goodness knows the idea, once taken for granted, has taken major hits since the 60s.
On the older end of the matter, it seems to me that it boils down to sexual self-enhancement; after a certain age, we must find more subtle and less immediately demonstrative ways of saying that we remain sexual beings. It’s a matter of biology: as we age, we droop, we stoop, we sag. So the flesh must dressed differently at 60 than at half that age.
For this reason, I find tight clothing, for example, a no-no post-middle age; Karl evidently disagrees. But, to my eye, he achieves the opposite of what he apparently sets out to do–to look youthful.
Karl Lagerfeld is probably the most well known and recognizable designer in the world and for that, one really does have to respect his work. None the less, the first if not the most refined thought that popped into my head when I saw this was ‘Enough with the boto and the hair dye and grotesque pouting. Both of you’
Um, to spin the thread a little more, re: are you ever too old to wear something, I prefer not having any hard and fast rules, such as tight clothing being a no-no past a certain age. When older people dress young out of a FEAR of aging, it always has the opposite effect. On the other hand, when older people dress as old as they FEEL, be it 18, 38, or 98, it always looks authentic and convincing.
they both look like robots – and that doesn’t really work when the sun is shining. I’m sort of surprised to see them in daylight! I’m a sucker for COLOUR and real smiles in the spring/summer especially. They are tres cool though, but borderline eurotrash.. not that there is anything wrong with that!
KL does whatever he wants, and I am sure he loves people talking about him all the time! Even if they say he is a monster, a vampire, cool, ugly, whatever… He is BEYOND everything, in a madonna kind of way. She looks like somebody I would love to have next to me at a dinner party…tres chic and gorgeous in a very aristocratic way. AND I am sure she doesnÂ´t give a damn about anything either. Good for them!!!!
Karl is the fashion world equivalent of Michael Jackson – an extraordinary talent with a complete lack of awareness of themselves and the world beyond their sycophant-supported bubble.
Lagerfeld’s style of dress seems really absurd on him, but no one will ever call him on it. It’s not so much age-appropriate as coterie-appropriate. Another man his age, say a butcher or a doctor, who dressed like that would be given a wide berth by all.
Wether one likes him or not, he has managed to have a uniquely personal look. No one else looks or dresses like him – even though in the last years he takes too many cues from Heidi Slimane. Amanda on the other hand has lost her amazing personal style and looks and became Karl’s alter ego – no inspiration there now I’m afraid. When she was with Galliano, she was the perfect muse.
Karl Lagerfeld, my all time hero! If anyone embodies the complete nature of power, constant change, and a certain timelessness that is ever apparent, it's him! I have watched his movie countless times and find his "To Hell with you all, I will do what I please" attitude worthy of worship. Although this statement may seem a little off kilter, what I mean by timeless change is he never stops reinventing himself. First we have Chloe, and at the sane time or shortly thereafter Karl Lagerfeld, then he takes over Chanel, and after this he rescues and reinvents countless design houses. He is the most outspoken, most creative designer of our time. I have never thought he receives the accolades he deserves. One slick man!
