Yesterday in Paris, Karl Lagerfeld was on hand with Vanessa Paradis to unveil the holiday windows for chic department store, Printemps. The windows, which WWD calls Chanel-themed, are really Karl-themed.

They feature a dozen miniature Karl puppets frolicking all over Parisian landmarks. We can't think of anything more festive than that! And speaking of festive, it's good to be a pal of Karl's around the holidays. He told WWD, "I prefer to be the Santa Claus than to get the gift. I start to buy Christmas gifts already sometimes in June and July. My big problem is to keep them, not to give them away before." (We wonder what Blake Lively's getting from him this year.)

In case you think Karl's going to take a few weeks off to enjoy the holidays, he's so not. His next project will be co-hosting duties with Anna Wintour at the Museum of Modern Art's Film Benefit on November 15, which will honor Pedro Almodovar.
