Who Is That White Knight? Oh, It’s Karl Lagerfeld

August 13th, 2010 // 1 Comment

This post could also have been titled, “Who wears short-shorts?” Well, that would be Baptiste Giabiconi, fashion designer and demi-god Karl Lagerfeld‘s boy-toy muse.

The two were spotted in St. Tropez, France, having a marvelous and seemingly gay old time. I do mean that quite literally too.

If you don’t know who Lagerfeld is, he’s the guy who spearheads the Chanel brand but he’s also in charge of another label you probably never heard of – Fendi.

My favorite thing about Uncle Karl? His tweets, which are words of wisdom:

- “I only go to places if I have a professional reason. I’m not a tourist.”

- “When I took over Chanel, nobody wanted it anymore. People said don’t touch it, it’s dead, it’s over. I saw possibility for the years to come.”

- “What I like in Monte Carlo is that I feel liked, I feel wanted, but I can walk on the street with nobody grabbing.”

- “Nothing scares me more than people with some doll collection. As a child, I never played with anything like toys. I wanted to be a grown-up.”
