Find a stray diamond brooch on the ground? Best bet is to find the owner—it might belong to Karl Lagerfeld. Page Six reports: "The Chanel fashion icon was mortified when it dropped off his tie during the bash at Skylight Studios. But BFA photographer Neil Rasmus found it on the floor, and rescued it. Rasmus told us, "I looked down and saw this 4-inch-long brooch covered in diamonds. I immediately gave it to security. Moments later, I saw Karl looking for it. He asked to personally thank me, and said, 'Not many people would be so honest.' Anna Wintour also thanked me." [Page Six]
