Karl Lagerfeld Says He's Not Retiring and That He Will Die in His Boots

Fab Blab: Karl Shoots Down Retirement Rumors . . . Again

As you know, there have been rumors swirling about Karl Lagerfeld stepping down from his Chanel throne and Alber Elbaz stepping in. The New York Times' fashion writer Cathy Horyn spoke to Karl hours before his couture show, and let it be known, he isn't going anywhere:

"I asked Mr. Lagerfeld . . . about those blog reports that he would leave Chanel and be replaced by Alber Elbaz of Lanvin. Mr. Lagerfeld said to forget about it. He was going to die with his boots on." Way to stand your ground, Karl. Hope this finally puts rest to the rumor mill.

I just can't imagine Chanel without Karl Lagerfeld. He is an amazing designer whose inspirations have touched so many Chanel-ites around the world. Jennipoo- I haven't seen his Confidential, but I read some of his tweets. Funny but very inspirational at the same time! Gotta love him.
