Karl Lagerfeld - Best in show

Here’s the deal with Karl Lagerfeld - you either love him or hate him. I have battled this thought for many years now, teetering back and forth between irritation and excitement. After a brief epiphany (that’s all it takes!), I’ve come to realize that this man of mystery fascinates me. From his designs to his personality, Karl always seems to stir up something controversial. Most of his criticism comes from his verbal onslaughts and ego-boosting assertions. Those things aside, Karl has prevailed on top of the fashion world for almost 50 years and incessantly remains the most popular and talented designer.

It seems to me that Karl has achieved his dream of “[becoming] a one-man multinational fashion phenomenon” (Voguepedia). With tenures at major fashion houses such as Fendi, Chanel and the eponymous Karl Lagerfeld, he is currently designing for 3 labels at the same time. To quote obnoxious Tumblr fashion bloggers, “when will your favs?”

It’s hard not to recognize the talent of this overzealous designer. Karl always thinks of a completely fresh and unique theme for his extravaganzas at Chanel and executes them to perfection. From fabricating a 40ft lion sculpture to putting us in the bed of an oyster, Karl’s ideas are energetic and fearless. We have seen the clothing unmistakably match their supermarket, arctic glacier, airline and merry-go-round precedents. Karl transforms the Grand Palais into a fantastical and fashionable wonderland - what has become a true Chanel experience.

Karl’s attention to detail is incredible. With 70 looks per collection and the most beautiful and meticulous handiwork, each outfit is a sartorial fantasy. This is no surprise coming from a man who “can reportedly turn out 200 original lightning-speed sketches in a twelve-hour stretch” (Voguepedia). Although he is often yawned at for his excessive use of tweed, Karl in fact uses a wide array of materials in his collections. For the recent Chanel Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2014 collection, he used concrete strung along like beadwork contrasting the sequins. Some of his past materials include mother of pearl, denim, neoprene, leather, crystals and exotic feathers. A Chanel collection would never be complete without a tweed jacket and skirt. Telling Karl to ditch the tweed is like telling the island of Santorini to stop using white stones and blue paint to build its communities.

I admire Karl because he is never afraid to take chances. Each brave and bold step he takes forward brings his Chanel legacy that much further towards the empire he wished to create. It’s also impressive to note that Karl always has the future in mind, never reflecting on past collections or shapes - he is constantly looking forward. His ceaselessly creative mindset and the influence of his designs have rattled the standards of fashion design. After creating and reviving such a paragon of glamour at Chanel, who could possibly fill his shoes when he retires?

Dakarai Molokomme, a 15-year-old starving child from a small village in Zimbabwe, has just told , one of the most famous pop stars in the world, to  and f*** , the local media are reporting exclusively.

“Yes, it’s true, I told Madonna to go f*** herself. Do you want to know why?” Dakarai asked. “It’s the same thing every time with these snobby rich Americans. Every once in a while they come to show us their support for the so-called eradication of poverty by adopting a child from a starving family, but they actually do more harm than good. Transracial international adoptions are part of the white savior industrial complex,” Dakarai explained.

In further discussions with journalists from the media, the  stated that “none of the children here actually want to be taken away from their family and friends so they can be displayed as some kind of trophy in the homes of self-righteous singers or actors who want to score some points with the media and Oprah.”

“If they really want to help us, they should get Big Pharma to ship us some anti-retroviral drugs for the AIDS epidemic, or build schools and hospitals. If they don’t want to do that, then they can all go f** themselves!” the child told reporters.

The 15-year-old also stated that he would say the same thing to any one of those American or European “faux humanitarian posers”, except for Bono, whom he said he would also kick in the groin.

“Bono’s efforts to save the African savage from itself prove that the colonial imperative is alive and well,” Dakarai said as he walked with other village children collecting sticks to build a tree fort.

THIS IS THE RAWEST 15 YEAR OLD ALIVE
