Once again, Karl Lagerfeld proves his photographic majesty in Harpers Bazaar. Inspired by 20th Century tastemakers Mona Bismarck and Millicent Rogers, Mr. Lagerfeld sought to recreate the energy and mood of their iconic fashion styles.
Mona Bismarck was voted "Best Dressed Woman in the World" in 1933 by none other than Coco Chanel. And was photographed by legendary fashion lensman Cecil Beaton, and painted by Salvador Dali.
With this homage, I'd say ole' Karl hit the Bismarck!
