Photo of Vigilante Karl Lagerfeld Lives at Harper's Bazaar, Has a Pet

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

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.
