Karl Lagerfeld's Drawing of President Obama as a Chef

Commander in Chef? Lagerfeld's Obama Sketch



Karl Lagerfeld has dubbed President Barack Obama "The Biggest Chef in the World" in a political cartoon he drew for last Thursday's edition of the German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. "The subject was inspiring," Lagerfeld said of Obama's reelection.

The cartoon, which Lagerfeld colored with Shu Uemura makeup, per his custom, depicts the president wearing chef's whites and holding a cake shaped like the White House. The caption reads, "The Biggest Chef in the World: 10 x 5 Stars."

Lagerfeld told WWD that he woke up early the morning after the election to see the results and draw the cartoon. "I couldn't do it before; I'm superstitious," he said.

The polymath designer has said that he "will never vote," but he hasn't been shy about commenting on politics in the past. In March, he drew a series of cartoons for Elle France in the month leading up to the French presidential elections.
