Laura Brown, the fabulous Australian features and special projects director at Harper's Bazaar, just tweeted this bizarre and hilarious photograph accompanied by the text: "Karl got a pet. Thanks Stephen Gan!"
This fascinates us on many levels. Does Laura Brown really have a framed photograph of a gun-wielding Karl Lagerfeld on her desk? And what is this paper/flower animal thing with eyeballs that Bazaar's creative director Stephen Gan gave her? And now this flora-pinata animal is photo-of-vigilante-Karl's pet?
By the way, stuff like this is why we love fashion people.
