Mieux vaut ne pas fâcher Karl Lagerfeld!

A fashion statement in human form, that would be Karl Lagerfeld.

These are days when cool has gone away. There is no more Andy Warhol. The Yardbirds disbanded long ago. The great movies of the past are rarely eclipsed, save for Avatar, Harry Potter and The Hunger Games...

We still have Mr. Karl Lagerfeld. One of the most fascinating characters of our time. Lagerfeld (born Karl Otto Lagerfeldt on September 10, 1933 in Hamburg) is a German fashion designer, artist and photographer based in Paris.

Karl Lagerfeld Calls Newsweek ‘a Sh-tty Little Paper’ ::: New York Magazine reports that, when asked what he thinks of Pulitzer prize winning journalist Robin Givhan’s recent Newsweek story that called him “overrated,” Lagerfeld said, “First of all, Tina Brown’s magazine is not doing well at all. She is dying. I’m sorry for Tina Brown, who was such a success at Vanity Fair, to go down with a s****y little paper like this. I’m sorry.”

Lagerfeld has also been quoted as calling the singer Adele “a little bit fat” in response to a question about singer Lana Del Rey. The controversial statement made headlines worldwide. Of course, we all know Adele IS FAT!

The Daily Beast points out that “Though they moved in similar social circles in the ‘60s, Lagerfeld never warmed to Andy Warhol, telling Vice magazine that he always felt like “an outsider” among Warhol and his Factory friends”


Cela fait des années que Karl Lagerfeld, créateur de renommée internationale, siège à la tête de la maison de couture Chanel. N’hésitant pas à révéler son univers personnel, il a laissé une journaliste du Harper’s Bazaar pousser les portes de son sanctuaire, qui n’est autre que la maison où il dort et réalise ses esquisses.

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
