It's comforting to know that Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld — him with his super computer brain — is picking his presidential candidate the same way many of us are.

"There's nobody else to support anyway," he explained to the Associated Press when asked about why he was supporting Hillary Clinton at his Chanel show yesterday.

Of course, there was more to his reasoning than just process of elimination, though. "I think with the first black president, what they need now is the first woman president," he told the Associated Press. "That has to change too." He added, "I like the idea. It's Women's Day every day."

Clinton, so far, is the fashion favorite. She's garnered the support of Anna Wintour, who even deigned to wear a T-shirt in support of the presidential candidate. Designers like Marc Jacobs, Public School's Maxwell Osborne and Dao-Yi Chow, and Tory Burch also made T-shirts in support of Clinton's campaign.
