Best Friends Fur-Ever: Designers and Their Pet Doppelgängers

People who resemble their pets – it’s an interesting phenomenon that I still haven’t quite figured out. But when the owner is a household name in fashion and Fido shares his or her impeccable style, I’m easily obsessed.

You see, these fashionable duos may not be the identical types that often go viral online, but they do share the same love of style and the finer things in life. For example, Donatella Versace’s terrier is treated to daily deep-conditioning treatments, while Carolina Herrera’s pooch was immortalized in a print for her line back in 2012.

But is all that champagne and caviar kibble all it’s cracked up to be? So far, the BFFs (best furry friends) have yet to comment. Personally, if Karl Lagerfeld ever asked me to jump, I’d probably do one of two things: instinctively say “how high,” or just roll over and die.

Check out The Coveteur to see all of fashion’s furry friends.

Karl Lagerfeld Encourages the Fitting-Room Selfie

Karl Lagerfeld is jumping on the selfie bandwagon. According to a statement from his label, the fitting rooms in his new (new as in just-opened-Friday) London flagship store are outfitted with iPads® for complete selfie-taking bliss.

Each device is loaded with Karl-inspired photo filters that shoppers can apply and then share through social media and email.

Looks like I’ll have to trek to London to take advantage of every last filter – no complaints here.

Pack Your Baguette: Karl Lagerfeld Hotel to Open in 2017

It’s difficult to imagine the design genius behind two of the most innovative fashion houses falling behind where trends are concerned. Well, I’m here to inform you that the impossible has happened. Between Palazzo Versace in Australia and Armani Hotel Dubai, hotels designed by fashion bigwigs is hardly a new idea. But, as of earlier this month, Karl Lagerfeld has agreed to follow in his peers’ footsteps. That’s right – the Karl Lagerfeld Hotel, a 270-room, 20-story high-rise, is set to open in Macau, China in 2017.

5 Style Bytes You May Have Missed

@thecoveteur: “Sweatpants are a sign of defeat. You lost control of your life so you bought some sweatpants.” – Karl Lagerfeld
If you call the sign of defeat not moving from the couch on Sundays, then yes. Guilty.

WWKLD What would Karl Lagerfeld do (or say)?

@elementstyle: Cake. I wish I had cake.
Things that would make Wednesday infinitely better.

@mindykaling: Thanks about my WGA dress, guys. It’s Saint Laurent and shoes, too. The sleeves covered a burn on my arm I got last week.

@HotelFoxtrot: Leaving the gym, purple yoga pants and purple winter coat, not a well planned out outfit, I kinda look like Grimace.
Or a really fit Barney.
