“More than anyone I know, he represents the soul of fashion: restless, forward-looking and voraciously attentive to our changing culture,” Anna Wintour, editor of American Vogue, said of Mr. Lagerfeld when presenting him with the Outstanding Achievement Award at the British Fashion Awards in 2015.
Creative director of Chanel since 1983 and Fendi since 1965, and founder of his own line, Mr. Lagerfeld was the definition of a fashion polyglot, able to speak the language of many different brands at the same time (not to mention many languages themselves: he read in English, French, German and Italian).
In his 80s, when most of his peers were retiring to their yachts or country estates, he was designing an average of 14 new collections a year ranging from couture to the high street, and not counting collaborations and special projects. His signature combinations of “high fashion and high camp” attracted Rihanna; Princess Caroline of Monaco; Christine Lagarde, managing director of the International Monetary Fund; and Julianne Moore.
The fashion world has been extending its condolences and honoring Lagerfeld ever since news of his passing.
Karl Lagerfeld didn’t breath oxygen. He breathed fashion. He had both an artistic and a business eye that defined what a modern fashion house should be. He lived one hundred lives and his creative brain was always looking at the future instead of looking at the past. pic.twitter.com/azeubrJeHq
New York rap personality Funk Flex can’t get enough of the Internet’s savagery. The hip-hop veteran hit up social media this week with Internet celeb Timothy Wilson questioning Jussie Smollett‘s attack.
Per The Blast, Sheck Wes, born Khadimou Rassoul Cheikh Fall, has been ordered to stay at least 100 yards away from Skye at all times. The request reportedly says she no longer feels safe after he “orchestrated a plan to stalk me and viciously beat my boyfriend and our friends in front of me in public.”
Will Smithhas been roped into the legal dealings of Duane Martin, this after the popular actor was subpoenaed and had to hand over documents. Martin, who is undergoing bankruptcy proceedings, is the target of a fraud lawsuit and a $1.4 million loan given to him by Will and Jada Pinkett Smith is under question.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the trustee presiding over Martin’s bankruptcy filed an amended lawsuit against the actor in which he reveals Will Smith and his companies have turned over financial records and emails between Will and Duane.
The trustee explains that Smith has turned over email chains between Smith, his rep, and Martin from 2018, where they discussed the $1.4 million loan that Will and Jada Pinkett Smith provided Duane several years ago to purchase the home in question, which is now the subject of a fraud lawsuit.
The trustee says the most compelling evidence of Martin’s alleged fraud can be seen in the emails between Martin and Smith and his reps. The trustee claims the emails show Martin “continued to put pressure on his friend WS to finance the transaction” while trying to get the loan in 2012. The docs also reveal Martin and Smith even had communications last year over Duane wanting to sell the home.
The outlet adds that the Smiths are not under any investigation for wrongdoing as this is just fact-finding mission. This is all connected to a September lawsuit from the trustee of Duane Martin and Tisha Campbell Martin’s bankruptcy sued Mr. Martin due to his thought that he was hiding assets to the tune of $2.6 million.

Back in 2016, Sanders made a strong attempt at running for president before eventually getting edged by Hillary Clinton.
The Brooklyn-born left-wing politician became a protest organiser in the Civil Rights Movement in the latest 1960s after moving to Vermont. He was elected to the US Senate in 2006 and has been re-elected twice since, in 2012 and 2018. Mr Sanders exploded onto the global stage in 2015 when he announced he would be running for the 2016 Democratic nomination for US President. (Express)
Bernie now joins a crowded group of politicians running for president including New Jersey’s Cory Booker and California’s Kamala Harris.
And though he has joined the race now earlier than he did at this point in 2015, Sanders’ entry comes in the wake of about a dozen others, like Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, another progressive populist, who announced the formation of an exploratory committee on New Year’s Eve and formally declared her candidacy 10 days ago. She quickly scooped up Sanders’ 2016 Iowa caucus director and has already traveled to six key states and Puerto Rico. (CNN)
