Meet your new Karl
A new Disney+ series about the life of Karl Lagerfeld has announced its star: Daniel Brühl. The Golden Globe-nominated Spanish-German actor, whose reel includes roles in Inglourious Basterds, Burnt, and All Quiet on the Western Front, is set to play the late designer in the six-part show. Titled Kaiser Karl, the show will follow Lagerfeld from the 1970s as he ascends the ladder to greatness. The log line teases, “In 1972, a 38-year-old Karl Lagerfeld aspired to become the most famous French fashion designer, at a time when Yves Saint Laurent reigned supreme. After meeting and falling in love with Jacques de Bascher, a young dandy, he found himself in competition with Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé, the head of the most prestigious fashion brand around. Full of clan rivalries and ego battles, partying and decadence, tragic love affairs and magnificent friendships, this is the story of Kaiser Karl, and his frantic quest for recognition.” According to Variety, who broke the news of Brühl’s casting, Théodore Pellerin will co-star as Jacques de Bascher, Arnaud Valois as Yves Saint Laurent, and Alex Lutz as Pierre Bergé.

Power stylist Jamie Mizrahi opens up her Montecito home to Architectural Digest
You see snippets of superstylist Jamie Mizrahi’s work every day, thanks to her celebrity clients such as Adele, Nicole Ritchie, Riley Keough, and Ariana Grande. Now you can get further acquainted, as the longtime fashion force shared a look at her getaway California abode with AD. Mizrahi let the publication in behind the doors of the six-bedroom, Tudor-style home with mountain views. For the feature, the mom-of-two spoke to former InStyle editor in chief Ariel Foxman, detailing the process working with interior designer Mike Moser on creating a “haven” for her family to escape to from their Los Angeles base. Moser himself explained: “Jamie has got an insanely wicked sense of taste,” Moser says. “She’s so creative and spontaneous and not afraid to try new things, not afraid to take a risk.” He describes her vision for the haven as “cozy but elevated. She wanted layers. She wanted colors. She wanted patterns.” Mizrahi agrees that she took more risks on the second home (she and her husband Nico recently sold their Beverly Hills house and are searching for their next project.) “Things on the wall—art, tapestries—we were like, ‘Okay, this isn’t our full-time place,’” she says. “Take that floral sofa upstairs—I will like seeing it every weekend, but I don’t know that that would be in a main room of the house I live in all the time.” Read the full feature here.
