Karl Lagerfeld Proves He's Really Plastic as a Barbie Doll
He's famous for his cutting judgements on people that have led some to suggest that he's a bit fake.
Well, Karl Lagerfeld has been proven to be just that as his likeness was transferred into a Barbie doll.
The legendary fashionista, who stands as creative director of Chanel and the Italian fashion house Fendi, has had the limited edition toy crafted in his image to celebrate Barbie's 55th birthday this year.
The doll will be launched in autumn by American toy giant Mattel as part of their collector series and will be dressed in the 80-year-old's signature tailored black jacket, white high-collar shirt, black jeans, necktie, black ankle boots and fingerless gloves, reports WWD.
Global vice president of Barbie product design, Kim Culmone, said: "It's not everyday that Barbie dresses like the world's most famous fashion designer."
Details surrounding the price and distribution of the iconic figurine will be released at a later date, although Mattel previously created a Barbie in honour of Hervé Léger by Max Azria which retailed at $150.
Meanwhile, Karl's pet cat, Choupette, was recently announced as the face of a Shu Uemura cosmetics campaign.
The snow-white Siamese kitty will front a holiday makeup collection for the Japanese brand, entitled 'Shupette by Karl Lagerfeld', which will also be released in autumn this year.
