The look: The Emperor of Fashion
The key elements: Sunglasses, bright white hair, shirt with a six-inch collar, diamond tie pin, immaculate blazer, jeans, belt buckle, boots with a slight heel and a pointed toe.
The message: Lagerfeld has earned every inch of his nickname, the Kaiser. (It's the German word for emperor, and Lagerfeld looks like nothing so much as an eccentric, high-ranking royal.) He has a masterful command over fashion that countless designers admire and respect, and his truly individual personal style reflects his status as one of the most talented designers working today. He loves to bring out his model muses to take his final bow.
