Karl Lagerfeld is turning into quite the little artist. Following his sketch of Queen Elizabeth's dream Diamond Jubilee garb, the Chanel creative director has released a rendering of President Obama dressed as a chef, which must be symbolic for something, right?
According to WWD, Lagerfeld drew the sketch for German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung the morning after the presidential election. The image, which was colored using Shu Uemura makeup (more symbolism?), features President Obama in "a proud stance in front of the American flag, dressed in chef whites and hoisting a platter bearing a small cake in the shape of the White House." The image is accompanied by the following caption in German: "The Biggest Chef in the World: 10 X 5 Stars."
I'm sure you all have many questions, so I'll start:
1. Why a chef?
2. Why Shu Uemura makeup?
3. Has President Obama seen this?
4. Has Jay-Z seen this? (He's besties with the Prez, right?)
5. What flavor is the White House cake? (I'm hungry.)
