Marc Jacobs recently was quoted as saying that his stint as a cartoon character on South Park was “the greatest honor of his entire life.” If Karl Lagerfeld was cartoon-ized in a similar way, would his reaction be the same? We actually think he would like it, since he’s pretty much done it to himself already on things like Diet Coke cans and eye shadow.
Cartoonist Alexsandro Palombo took it a step further and rendered some fashion heavyweights as Simpsons characters. In addition to Karl, Anna Wintour, Grace Coddington, and Diane Pernet all got the treatment.
The Simpsons actually have a bit of history with fashion. Back in 2007, Harper’s Bazaar ran an editorial featuring them in Paris, accompanied by a Simpson-ed Linda Evangelista. They all hung out with Karl and Alber Elbaz and Marc Jacobs. We’ve included that editorial here just for the hell of it. It’s almost as good as fashion people as Muppets.
