>> The first images of Heidi Mount and Freja Beha Erichsen in Chanel's Fall 2009 campaign — which Karl Lagerfeld shot at his Vermont house for the second season in a row — have just appeared (see gallery below), with a Little House on the Prairie feel: Karl's barn will be the backdrop for at least one.
But Karl's been busy doing non-Chanel things in the weeks before couture. The Paris premiere of the animated film, Totally Spies, for which he voiced the antagonist Fabu, was yesterday — see a clip of him as Fabu here, at 1:00 — and the designer walked the red carpet with three catsuited women. He also sat front row at the Dior Homme show yesterday as he has a number of times before, where he said of the canvas "Karl Who?" tote he's been carrying: “I find it flattering. Somebody offered one to me and now Colette has picked it up." The bag is designed by Naco-Paris, but not yet available online.
