By now you've heard Karl Lagerfeld is in town. He didn't just come to flaunt his new bow ties over dinner at the Waverly Inn with Calvin Klein and visit Harlem. Au contraire, dahlings — he came to work. Earlier this week he shot Claudia Schiffer in Central Park and yesterday he shot the next Fendi campaign in Madison Square Park. We knew the air downtown was just that much more exquisite! Apparently it wasn't quite so amazing for one paparazzo, according to the Post:
Yesterday, spies near Broadway and 25th Street saw Jay-Z and Lagerfeld at a photo shoot for the new Fendi campaign (which features the hip-hop mogul). "A paparazzo lurked from out of the shadows and started snapping away at them," said our witness, "and out of nowhere, one of Lagerfeld's guys just threw him to the ground."
We coulda told him fashion wasn't a walk in the park. Lagerfeld also shot Raquel Zimmerman for Fendi yesterday. We have video of that after the jump.
Listen carefully to the chit chat at the beginning. Not only do they mention security, they mention "tomorrow," which would be today. So if anyone sees the Kaiser playing photographer, please, for the love of Coco, take a picture on your iPhone and send it to us.
