Why I Love (To Hate) Karl

There are so many reasons to admire Karl Lagerfeld. A creative genius, a fashion maverick, pusher of boundaries and controversial to boot; to my knowledge, only he has made Anna Wintour walk out of a catwalk show (his use of porn stars as models for Fendi in the 90's prompted the action).

There are so many reasons to hate Karl Lagerfeld. Elitist, a body fascist, one of the most prominently 'pro fur' designers in the industry and comes across as a shameless old man who is only concerned with being photographed with hip young celebrities.

Like Blake Lively, yesterday. Apparently he's going to be guesting on the next season of Gossip Girl (can't wait to see that one, please let it be true).
