It seems like Karl Lagerfeld is quite comfortable at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc. Last week he showed Chanel’s Cruise 2011/12 collection at the Cap d’Antibes and on Thursday, he will be showing a selection of his photographic works at the amfAR Gala. The selection was curated by Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld and the many fancy celebrities including Mick Jagger, Uma Thurman and Kanye West will be in attendance. I hope images from the Gala surface online – I’d love to see which of his photographs will be shown.
