Tomorrow is the launch party for Karl Lagerfeld's new book, Metamorphoses of an American. It "traces the physical and emotional development of Brad Kroenig … the world's most sought-after male model." The book consists entirely of photographs of Brad shot over the last five years by Karl himself. One of the images is above. But more important, next to it is the invitation to the soirée, which explicitly boasts, "Karl Lagerfeld will be present." Obviously, we'll be there, hyperventilating from being in such close proximity to him. We'll try to survive long enough to ask him some burning questions. In the meantime, we're trying to keep calm in a way Karl might: meditating on images of Brad. Won't you join us? After the jump, we have a selection of photographs from the book.
