Morning round-up: Karl Lagerfeld's fashion therapy, plus Eva gets frugal at Fashion Week!

18 February 2009

 Karl Lagerfeld

Karl Lagerfeld's got a new role in life – as a fashion therapist. To the question ‘Can I still look chic by buying cheap?' Karl commands: ‘The most important thing is to sleep well. Try to have sweet dreams and no recession nightmares.' As for how to wear heels at a cocktail party? ‘Please, your question is childish. Don't drink when you wear stilettos.' [FWD]

Zoë Kravitz, you know Lenny's daughter, on the rise of rock-star kids at New York Fashion Week: ‘My dad used to embarrass me all the time with his clothes when I was younger. But now I wear crazy outfits sometimes, too.' [WWD]

Want to watch those models tumble at Herve Leger? Here's the clip, you meanies. But yep, makes us feel a bit better this mid-week morning too. [Modelina]

Salma Hayek's Honeymoon attire: a ruby-coloured ensemble from Parisian lingerie brand Vannina Vesperini. Is nothing sacred anymore? [WWD]

Alexa Chung's favourite designers: ‘Phillip Lim, Luella, Chanel, Isabel Marant and Antipodium. I like how these designers make clothes you can get dirty in.' Tsk. What would Karl say? [Telegraph]

Eva Longoria Parker is so in tune with these credit-crunch times. ‘I've always been pretty frugal about everything I wear on the red carpet. I return it all the next day.' [WWD]
