Remember when I said something about a book being published with quotes from Karl? Of course you do! It’s just as memorable as Karl’s quotes. Especially when, in the space of two days you have that title announcing a book and another title, describing the love and devotion that Karl Lagerfeld has developed for his cat, at such point that he’d like to marry his furry little feline.
Now that we finally started to pretend we didn’t read the latter, bam! der Kaiser is not allowing us to put Choupette behind us. Linda Evangelista covers the July 2013 issue of Vogue Germany with Lagerfeld’s cat in her arms. Photographed by Lagerfeld.
Should I even bother counting the reasons for which this cover is nothing short of ridiculous? Nah, don’t think so. A single look is enough to either love it or leave it!
It really isn’t about Choupette or Linda, the cover and editorial are tributes to iconic Italian film actress, Anna Magnani! Miss Magnani loved her cats! =)
Bellissima! Luchino Visconti directing the great Anna Magnani….yes, Anna is iconic.
Learn about great, classic cinema….see that film and cry….it’s heartbreaking..:)
Wouldn’t have come up with the idea this cover was about Anna though. Still I don’t see it really? But thank you a lot. I’m gonna take a peek :)
I got a “post war” vibe when I saw it. Very nostalgic, almost sad.
A interbellum…..yeah, my feeling since a few years…..
It’s long ago I saw this film. I believe in the ’80s. A Visconti retrospective. I am a great fan of his work. They have made such great films in other times.
If you ever attend Amsterdam go to see EYE, the (new) Dutch Film Museum. If you’re not to able to see a film the building itself is a wonderful piece of architecture and a great place for a lunch or diner.
