the world according to karl – the most vicious book by karl lagerfeld


i have waited for long and so excited to see this wisdom+vicious book comes out this september 17.  it’s all about his outrageous quotes  and i’m sure it’s a book that i shouldn’t be missed this year. obviously, you can tell from the title itself :-)

enjoy these classic one-liners:

“life is not a beauty contest, some [ugly people] are great. what I hate is nasty, ugly people…the worst is ugly, short men. women can be short, but for men it is impossible. it is something that they will not forgive in life…they are mean and they want to kill you.” (so true)

“If you throw money out of the window throw it out with joy. Don’t say ‘one shouldn’t do that’ — that is bourgeois.” (unfortunately true again)

descriptions from amazon:

karl lagerfeld’s quick wit and silver tongue are as notorious as chanel’s quilted handbag. this book is a cornucopia of his karlisms: cultivated, unpredictable, provocative, sometimes shocking, but always impossible to ignore. karl lagerfeld is a modern master of couture. while simultaneously running chanel, fendi, and his own eponymous fashion house, he has consistently re-invented trends on the catwalk and in the street for half a century. his wise, surprising statements pop up like offbeat news flashes and are regularly seized upon by fashionistas, acolytes, and sages the world over. here, in his own deadpan words, are his exacting opinions on everything-from fashion, style, women, and chanel to fame, life, and books. this is the ultimate repertoire of wit and wisdom from fashion’s sharpest pin. “i only know how to play one role: me.” “think pink. But don’t wear it.” “i like everything to be washable, myself included.” “change is the healthiest way to survive.” “i don’t recommend myself as a guest.” “there is one thing i love on earth: to learn.”
