Speaking of Karl Lagerfeld (re: my last post about his face on your chest)

…Doesn’t this video make him seem, dare I say it…sweet? I mean, the guy’s been known to say some pretty stupid things, specifically about how much ladies weigh – like he doesn’t like “curvy” people (i.e. Heidi Klum, naturally). What this means after deep interpretation is that he only likes lettuce-eating rabbit people, known colloquially as “models.” And I’m not saying this video made me love him, but, well – he seemed sweet. He also seemed, genuinely, to think he never does enough and often feels lazy, which I totally relate to. Anyway – he’s not going win any people of the year awards in my book, okay? I just thought this was an interesting, softer take on the otherwise total ass, Chanel couturier. So sue me.

Coco Chanel in the Flesh

20 Jan

Have you ever SEEN Coco Chanel? I haven’t! Not speaking, at least. This video is pretty fascinating with Coco speaking in her native French (if only I had payed more attention in class!) and sounding bored and uh, completely intimidating. But, as Stylite (where I originally found this video) says, “Maybe it’s because she’s standing up the whole time. Or maybe it’s because she’s COCO CHANEL.” Yeah – it’s ‘cuz she’s Coco Chanel.
