Karl Lagerfeld Keeps It Street

imageLagerfeld in Phat Pharm? Cavalli dressing like Rhett Butler? That’s the September issue of Harper’s Bazaar. The mag wrangled together top designers to dress them up in fantasy outfits. “Michael Kors, Karl Lagerfeld, Donna Karan, Donatella Versace, Alessandra Facchinetti, Giorgio Armani, Alber Elbaz, Rodarte’s Laura and Kate Mulleavy and Roberto Cavalli were all asked to get into character as something other than a designer. Armani played the role of Fred Astaire, Kors took on James Stewart’s L.B. Jeffries character from Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window, Elbaz reinvented himself as a Hollywood producer with James Bond flair and Cavalli went Gone with the Wind as Rhett Butler; he was shot embracing Coca Rocha as Scarlett O’Hara.” Lagerfeld dressed up as a rapper, striking a pose with Phat Farm jeans and untied shoelaces. “Believe it or not, I love rap,” he told Bazaar. If only he’d consented to wear his tribute T-shirt.
