In perhaps the funniest article of the weekend, Daphne Guinness revealed to the Financial Times that she gave Karl Lagerfeld a cartridge of the wickedly violent video game Grand Theft Auto and he was so inspired, he used some of its iconography in his designs. Since Karl already wears bad-ass driving gloves everywhere he goes, and since he's a DJ for GTA's newest version, this isn't such a huge surprise, but still, we're amused: Will his next ad campaign be based solely on Lollipop Girl? Will he stop using woven leather chains on his handbags and start using recycled bullets? And will all Chanel clothes now come with a rating system about violence, nudity, and wasting precious gasoline? Also: Daphne Guinness, addicted to PlayStation. OMFG.
Karl Lagerfeld, New Super Villain?
Cats have been a chic motif since the Ancient Egyptians worshipped them thousands of years ago (and sure, that Miu Miu print from 2010 helped, too). They've also been pop culture stars thanks to the James Bond / Austin Powers / CeeLo style of super-villain: A wily, hyper-cultured megamind holding a pampered little puffball. Karl Lagerfeld appears to be next in line.
