We’re back with another weekly dose of model news and this time, we’ll be focusing on a legend in the fashion/modelling world: Karl Langerveld.
V magazine recently held a party in Manhattan to honour the Chanel and Fendi creative director. For those of you who don’t know, Karl’s ground-breaking work with Chanel and Fendi cemented his status as an industry icon and he has also been credited with launching the careers of many prominent models. Karl was joined by Gigi, Bella and Yolanda Hadid (mother of the supermodel sisters), as well as other big names such as Kris Jenner and Joan Smalls. The party took place at The Top of the Standard hotel.
Guests were given Karl masks to hold up as a sign of support and the entire affair was laced with glitz and glam from start to finish. Joan Smalls stood out in her all-pink ensemble and nude heels, while sisters Bella and Gigi rocked Chanel’s grey coat and black leather jacket, finishing off their looks with the brand’s signature ‘C’ logo belt.
Speaking of Gigi, we recently saw her latest campaign for GIGIxMAYBELLINE Makeup – another step in advancing her profile as an entrepreneur after her collaboration with Tommy Hilfiger.
