I was in total disbelief. BLASPHEMY! This is not the Karl I know and love... this had to be some impostor. Then I closed my eyes and listened to his voice.. it was Karl. Wow, did that man go through a complete overhaul or what?
|Karl Before and After|
Besides the obvious fact that he lost a few pounds, modern day Karl has also cultivated an image, a brand. The white pony tail and the black sunglasses have always been his signature but he solidified his look with the addition of high collared shirts, black tie, black suit, some sort of chain hanging from his neck, and the fingerless gloves. Oh yeah, and he lost the fan... good move, Karl.
His chubby to chic transformation has made him one of the world's most recognizable designers.
In my search for vintage Karl pics I also came across an article from 2009 that said there were rumors that Karl was going to leave Chanel (with Alber Elbaz the rumored replacement)! Could you imagine anyone but Karl designing for Chanel?

Oh, yea! Karl also cares about your life!
Isn't he just wonderful??
