ON TOP OF YOUR HAT • Maison Michel - the 2011 hat collection as captured by Karl Lagerfeld
Karl Lagerfeld has taste. And humour. And he knows a lot of people, a hell of a lot of people.
That is exactly what the creative minds behind milliner August Michel thought, whose creations must have adorned every famous head and every cover ever published on our planet.
So it comes as no great surprise then that an appropriate number of celebrities figuratively clawed their way to the front of the camera to have their photographs taken by Karl for the 2011 look book.
The illustrious list of models includes GoSee darling Anja Rubik, Bambi Northwood Blyth, Jac, Abbey Lee Kershaw, Angela Lindvall, Ashley Smith, Tanga Moreau, Olivier Theyskens, Frida Gustavsson, Shu Pei Qin, Irina Lazareanu, Elena Perminova, Josephine de la Baume, Mark Ronson, Karolina Kurkova, Leigh Lezark, Sim Bad, Maxine, Lou Doillion, Marlowe, Audrey Marnay, Florrie Aronld and Nicole Trunfio.
Oh, did we fail to mention that the company, founded in 1936 by August Michel was acquired by Chanel in 1996? The world is a beautiful place, but it can also be awfully small!
