Karl's Turn at Metamorphosis

You can't ignore two things about Karl Lagerfeld: he created amazing fashions for over 30 years, in an industry that is always ready to give you the chop, and from his mouth came wit and at times venom. He created a world around him that was beautiful, excessive, so not PC, and uniquely all his. A true iconoclast, inspiration, and complex human. I wonder if in his metamorphosis if he will go to a new realm where he finds a world where all of his fantasies have manifested or come back as a Birman. 

Here are some images that alway stayed in my head after I saw them in magazines or videos.
