    5. Karl Lagerfeld refers to his would-be biographers as 'lazy pigs'. When asked by Elle at the Gordon Parks Foundation dinner who he'd select to write his biography, the designer responded: []

    “Whoever has time, because I couldn't care less. Today nobody’s really found the real story," he answered. And he definitely won't go out of his way to throw would-be biographers a bone: "I don’t have too much consideration for the poor people who try to write that book ... But it’s interesting that people in fact are lazy. If they worked hard they would find interesting things. Nobody finds it! So I’m in a position to say ‘Fuck you, you’re all lazy pigs.’ And I certainly won’t help them!”

    6. Fur flies over Fendi's Seoul fashion show. 1200 international celebrities and fashion leaders descend on the capital city of South Korea for an important fashion show presented by Fendi. South Korea had originally ordered fur banned from the Fendi show but retracted the ban when Fendi agreed to reduce the amount of fur items on the runway. [Yahoo]
