Fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld dies aged 85

German fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld looks on after launching the Champs Elysees Christmas lights on November 22 in Paris

Minus an eight-year absence in the '80s, Lagerfeld worked with Chloe until 1992, crafting a reputation for designs that didn't take themselves too seriously and runway shows that never failed to entertain. I doubt even Lagerfeld realized the impact his rule-breaking high-low collaboration would have on the industry with a collection that was received with the frenzy of a Beatles album, the aftershocks of which can still be seen today in what designers and marketers like to refer to as "disruption".

"I'm not insane to discuss fashion with men". What Warhol was to art, he was to fashion; he is irreplaceable. I warbled. "Yes", he said, delighted, and promptly spilled the beans as his handlers pulled him away.

Less than an hour after news broke of the death of fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld on Tuesday, animal rights organization People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) released a statement that left some people shocked and disgusted.

Wrote Kim Kardashian of the iconic designer: "We lost a true legend!" The icon published a 2002 book titled "The Karl Lagerfeld Diet" about how he lost 92 pounds. The world is so much chicer because you existed! "I never quite understood what you saw in me but I am forever grateful for the support that you and Chanel have given me over the last 15 years".

Barcelona won't take Lionel Messi 'risks' despite Copa del Rey squad inclusion
Keylor Navas has been the preferred one for the Copa del Rey and he will replace Thibaut Courtois in the line-up on Wednesday. Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele is unlikely to be fit for the game, as he is still recovering from a hamstring injury.

His illustrious fashion career began in the early 1950s, when he started working as an assistant to Pierre Balmain. I'm lucky to work in the most flawless of conditions.

Added model and Chanel favorite Kaia Gerber: "This one hurts to write". In other words, if you wanted a good quote, you had to sing for your supper, and that I tried, sometimes with more success than others. I can not put into words how lucky we all are to have been gifted your vision.

As much as he loved the spotlight, Lagerfeld was careful to obscure his real self. The world is more lovely now because of you. Thank you for everything.

Yet Lagerfeld also stood out as a craftsman. "For me the Venice carnival lasts all year long". I feel so lucky to have been in your presence. "We intend to take the time to honor his life and pay him the tribute he deserves".

The house in which the terrorists were holed up was blasted by security forces. Since the beginning of this year, there have been 14 gun battles in Kashmir.

Viard has been entrusted to continue the "legacy of Gabrielle Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld" at Chanel, having been Lagerfeld's closest collaborator for more than 30 years. I like that kind of woman, I like romantic beauties.

First lady Melania Trump wore a Karl Lagerfeld creation to a press conference in 2017 during a visit by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. To all his beloved friends and colleagues, and his favorite girl Choupette, my heart is with you.

Designers Donatella Versace and Victoria Beckham were some of the first stars to comment on the loss on Instagram.
