I know, I know, "meta" is one of those "it" words that gets murmured @ meetings and everybody kinda just pretends to get it because they don't want to look stupid in front of everybody else or the boss, so it ends up never really meaning anything at all. But this is totally meta: Above is Roberto Cavalli (and Eve) @ his joint Halloween bash with Giuseppe Cipriani at Cipriani's restaurant in Manhattan from Wednesday night. Cavalli took it upon himself to go in costume as fashion colleague Karl Lagerfeld -- hilarity ensued.
[...]the entrance of the night at Roberto Cavalli's Halloween Ball at Cipriani [...] belonged to the designer himself. Flanked by six models in feathered headdresses, he arrived on the scene dressed as his famous colleague Karl Lagerfeld. "At the last moment, I thought, 'What am I to do?' " said Cavalli. "I wanted to dress like somebody from my world and my planet. And who is the best? Karl Lagerfeld."
We <3 that silly little byotch. Here's Cavalli in his normal (well, botoxed, restylaned) face:
...and here was his 4 real Lagerfeld inspiration:
And again, below, is the Cavalli-Lagerfeld synthesis (with Petra Nemcova as Cleopatra).
It's like if Villazón threw a party and dressed up as Alagna.
