The world according to Karl Lagerfeld is one we know well, thanks to the designer's frequent one-liners, ruminations on just about anything, and general penchant for honesty above all else. The designer has become as notorious for his candid, and sometimes controversial, interviews as he has for his work at Chanel and Fendi. In the past year alone, Lagerfeld has kept tongues wagging with a supermarché-themed Fall 2014 show, a bizarre film titled Fashion Machine, Kristen Stewart's debut Chanel campaign, and a far-flung show schedule that included both Dallas and Dubai. If anyone can keep us on our toes, it's the Kaiser.
In honor of Lagerfeld's 81st birthday, we're celebrating with some of our favorite Karl-isms, a zany mix of the most outrageous and the most colorful things he has said (so far).
