Karl Lagerfeld, one of the most prolific and influential fashion designers in history, died Tuesday in Paris. He was 85.

His death was confirmed by Chanel, for which he has been creative director since 1983. He was also creative director of Fendi since 1965, and the man behind his own iconic line.

“I don't want to be real in other people's lives. I want to be an apparition.” — Karl Lagerfeld

The New York Times called his signature look “high fashion and high camp.” It was coveted by everyone ffrom Princess Caroline to Rihanna, and it made him a household name to this day, even among those born well after his heyday. He was a human caricature (by his own admission) — the deadpan expression, the huge shades, the white pony, those high collars. It was a look that, once he settled on it, never changed.

“Sweatpants are a sign of defeat.” — Karl Lagerfeld

Among Lagerfeld's other achievements: He was a photographer, a book publisher (Edition 7L) and the author of the 2002 diet book The Karl Lagerfeld Diet, which chronicled how he dropped nearly 100 lbs. Sometimes, even wearing black from head to toe is not enough. He was also a noted collector of art, of books (300,000+), clothing and jewelry, and the proud father of his Birman kitty Choupette:

I loved Trainwreck, hated every second of Snatched, and wound up liking Amy Schumer's latest, I Feel Pretty, somewhere in-between.

The truth is, if you can BEWARE OF PLOTHOLES, the film is funny and strangely sweet.

Elizabeth Taylor Really WAS A Gay Icon — She Was Harassed For Being Fat In Middle Age! Comments (0)

Elizabeth Taylor has been gone over six years already, which is hard to fathom. Check out a piece I did over at Gr8erDays that gathers some never-seen pics of the legend during her middle age, when Joan Rivers and others were on her about her weight. She had the last laugh, regaining her physical beauty for a good long spell, and ultimately dying ater spending her post-sex symbol years as a fearless philanthropist and activist.
