Laetitia Casta Spends A Little Time In The Shade
Karl Lagerfeld shot Laetitia Casta in black and white for Chanel's latest eyewear campaign. We've spent the past few hours pondering what the Kaiser is trying to say here, if anything. It was just last summer that he shot Casta in front of the Eiffel Tower for a 10-page fashion spread for V with his beloved Choupette and some bondage undertones. Is that Choupette's leash?

As heads of state gather for the United Nation's Commission on the Status of Women stateside, Karl Lagerfeld was holding his own convention of sorts in Paris where the Grand Palais was transformed into the Chanel headquarters, complete with a giant rotating globe front and center. Jessica Chastain, Vanessa Paradis, and Milla Jovovich were just a few of the bold-faced "representatives" that gathered for the event. On the agenda? Elongated overcoats with a center cutout at the hem, exaggerated nubby jackets worn over pleated minis, fit 'n' flare LBDs accented with slick over-the-knee leather boots, and scads of oversize...
