Karl Lagerfeld knows what he likes. And he really knows what he doesn’t like. In a recent interview for the relaunch of M Magazine—which was initially published from 1983 to 1992—the Kaiser chatted about his personal grooming (he’s had his signature ponytail for 35 years) and his very specific allergies (hint: it’s not medical).

Karl Lagerfeld has some more opinions he’d like you to know about, but thankfully these ones are all fashion related
Who’s the sexiest Middleton? According to Karl Lagerfeld, it’s Carole Middleton. Kate and Pippa’s 57-year-old mother.
In an exclusive interview with Grazia, the Kaiser didn’t hold back (as per usual) and said “I think Carole is very sexy. I think the mother is sexier than both the daughters. There is something full of life about her. For a woman who must be 50 or so, I think she’s great – full of energy.”

If this is a bid for sympathy, we’re not sure it’s going to work with most women: Rihanna has been sounding off about her size zero body as of late, saying she misses being “chunkier.” The Bajan bombshell lamented her former bodacious behind to US Weekly a few weeks ago, then complained to Harper’s Bazaar in her August cover story about her shrunken butt yet again.
“I don’t know if there’s something going on with my body right now, but I’m eating everything in life! I miss my ass. It just went away! I need a butt. I have an idea of one, but it’s not living up to its full potential right now.”
Years upon years of watching Sex and the City have etched Manolo Blahnik’s eponymous shoe line into our female collective unconscious, largely thanks to Carrie’s fanatical obsession with the Spanish designer’s heels, which gave his designs an almost myth-like status. Given all this adulation, Blahnik’s opinions about shoemaking and fashion fanatics are a bit surprising.
“The women who say, ‘I love to wear them, even if they kill me,’ are stupid. Whenever I start to talk about my work, it starts to sound so pompous and pretentious. After all, it’s just shoes.”
While we can’t imagine this will go over well with 90 per cent of fashion-conscious women (who hasn’t willingly suffered in a pair of painful but beautiful heels?), the good news is that there’s still a designer who gets fashion-before-comfort: Christian Louboutin. The designer famously said comfort is not his “focus”; rather, he wants women to feel “sexy” in his designs.
Up until she was hand-plucked by Balenciaga designer Nicolas Ghesquière to be the face of the label’s latest fragrance, Florabotanica, Kristen Stewart was a perfume virgin. Growing up, her interests were more of the rough-and-tumble variety than sneaking samples of her mom’s cosmetics. Considering that the Snow White and the Huntsman star admits she’s “a terrible liar,” there was some anxiety leading up to her first encounter with Balenciaga’s new scent—but by the sounds of it, Stewart is now hooked:

Quotable: Thanks to practicing on her brother’s face while growing up, this A-list star is quite handy with the makeup brush
Considering her gig as an Almay spokesperson and her Hollywood pedigree, it’s not all that surprising that Kate Hudson knows a thing or two about makeup. The star even told People recently that she does both her and her friends’ makeup for premieres: “If I’m bringing them to a premiere . . . they’ll all come over early and I’ll do their makeup. I love it.” Hudson’s love for makeup was sparked early on by Tom Case, mom Goldie Hawn’s makeup artist, but she also had a convenient canvas to practice on growing up:
“My poor brother. He was kind enough to be my mannequin, and let me experiment on his face. I’d put blue eye shadow on him and we’d laugh.”
Quotable: Kim says the Kardashians are famous thanks to that elusive “It” factor, but dark hair, good looks and curves also help
It’s not exactly like they need it, but the Kardashian Klan is getting another moment in the spotlight as they kozy (sorry, we had to) up with Oprah for a much-hyped interview special. Oprah decided to pull out the big guns, flat-out asking them if they think they’d be famous if they weren’t “good-looking kids,” to which Rob Kardashian replied “they’re not like skinny women . . . they’re not models here.” Big sister Kim Kardashian swept in and took the reins, giving O a much more inspiring explanation:

Quotable: Wonder what a Victorian beach-inspired manicure would look like? Zooey Deschanel explains her quirky nail art
Though her scarlet Oscar de la Renta dress was already a showstopper on its own, Zooey Deschanel’s lemon yellow 3-D nail art was perhaps the most eye-catching element of her whole look for the Critics’ Choice Television Awards. The New Girl star, who’s fond of wearing clever manicures on the red carpet, spoke with BellaSugar about the unlikely inspiration for her citron and silver nails. Read more »
