    That sounds like a ridiculously expensive perfume – Bouche: AMUSE.

    And I’d buy it.

    Karl looks very unhappy… probably because the doll is obviously wearing LAST years sunglasses.

    Whoever made the doll must’ve thought Karl was Caucasian rather than native Oompa Loompan. Common mistake.

      LOL. He is a peach, isn’t he? I’m just wondering, for the first time, if Karl wears a toupee…? The hairline in this pic looks a little Astro-turfy.

        It sure looks like one–and this creature has the nerve to insult the looks of Pippa Middleton, Adele, and Michelle Obama? Talk about chutzpah.

          And yet he’ll cover [mercifully] Kim Kardashian’s face in rhinestones. Go figure. Karl is an enigma wrapped in a question wrapped in a really complicated jigsaw puzzle which takes FOREVER to do on Boxing Day.

          Actually, the doll reminds me of my Kenneth Parcell talking bobblehead. SPEAK: BOBBLEHEAD.

        I think it may be high humidity back east? I was also shocked at his ‘do.

        The hairline does look like it, but the color, and more importantly, the texture, are a perfect match. It must’ve been a little humid there that day – he’s got the frizzies. This doesn’t normally happen with a piece, because they’re made of hair types that can really take a beating with color and styling, and so are also pretty much immune to humidity (if you own a piece that does get the frizzies, get your money back!).

        Color can be replicated, even a pure white like this (though that’s very difficult), but matching texture exactly is pretty close to impossible. There’s even one of those super-wiry hairs in there that most of us get here and there when we go white…

        I’m going to go out on a limb and say I think it’s more likely a styling issue – bringing some of it forward, to cover the hairline, creating the toupée-like effect.

        And I have just spent WAY too much time on Karl Lagerfeld’s hair!

    Ahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!! Karl is a treasure and I cherish him! Now, I need to get myself that doll!

    I love it that he loves his little Choupette.

      I know, right? I saw him being interviewed on tv once and the host had the genius idea of asking about Choupette and Herr Karl was done for, he went on and on about his cat, it was sooo adorable! He’s such a cat person, I love him…

    I kind of wish Doll Karl had another, smaller Doll Karl in his arms rather than a cat.

    That is pretty freaking awesome. Although it would be even more awesome if his doll was holding an even smaller doll version of himself. It could go on ad infinitum.

    Is Real Karl as amusing as GFY Karl, I wonder?

    •  HelenBackAgain

      I don’t see how he could possibly be… but imagine if he IS.

      And everyone from Fug Compound gets to visit on his yacht and let him hold court!

      I feel this way about every GFY celeb. I think Britney is spot-on, Real J.Lo is not nearly as entertaining as GFY J.Lo (supported by the existence of gross Caspar Bear), and GFY Kanye is nowhere near the level of blind self-adulation of Real ‘Ye.

    This is clearly a teaser for the eventual animated series set in the fashion world and I for one CAN’T WAIT for animated Karl and animated ALT to fight crime together.

    I SO wish that Heather or Jessica would do a post on the Kim Kardashian baby bump photo shoot that Karl did. Absolutely. Cray.

    OMG this has totally made my day. Where can I buy, because I NEED THIS

    And sorry about your noroviri, FugGirls! Hope you’re better soon — it’s a nasty thing, indeed.

    This made me so happy. I have missed the Voice of Karl.

    Bouche: AMUSE is one of the best Karlisms you have ever produced. Thank you for bringing him back!

    Yay, this made my day! I LOVE when GFY Heather channels Karl. :)

    With a virus, no less! Hee. Short and sweet.

    I personally have missed some of their conversation posts, but I know they’re busy. ;^)
