This Just In!

Happy Belated 75th-80th Birthday, Karl Lagerfeld!

Yesterday, we were all set to thank our dear Uncle Karl for spending 80 amazing years visiting us on planet Earth until Olivia Bergin at the Telegraph had to go and do some "research." Turns out the Kaiser could be anywhere from 75 to 80-years-old. Nobody's quite sure! The confusion stems from a typo by his beloved mutter, many moons and countless collections ago.

The takeaway? He was born sometime between 1933 and 1938, and you should never trust Wikipedia. In any case, Karl's stopped counting: "Everyone knows that I'm 100-years old… So it doesn't matter how old I am!" he joked, through a spokesman.

Alles Gute zum Geburtstag, Herr Lagerfeld!

You'll always be 39 to us.
