Those trapped in PJs and bored with TiVo this weekend can lean back with an eggnog latte and watch this instead: Karl Lagerfeld's most recent appearance on The Charlie Rose Show, with color commentary by New York's Harriett Mays Powell, who wears black-and-white tweed. In the segment, Karl says "I know women who wear couture like jeans," which is lovely because we've always imagined you guys as wearing jeans like couture. We recommend watching the show instead of the America's Next Top Model marathon on MTV, because at this point, it seems everyone needs a break from the tiresome "expertise" of Jay Manuel and the way Jenna looks almost but not quite enough like Sasha P. The Karl clip is an hour long, which is exactly how long we need to get motivated for the gym...but we're going, we swear, we're going.
