So, in case you’ve been hiding from the world for the past week, I’m here to tell you that Kaiser Karl has, indeed, been most busy, between showing Chanel’s 2013 Cruise collection in Versailles to shooting the lookbook for Cruise starring Cara Delevingne and coming out with a sumptuous, maharajah-themed advertising campaign for pre-Fall 2012. First? The lookbook:

I’m really unsure how I feel about this – while I love the interlocking C motif facial appliqué (so very noughties Marilyn) and the metallic shoes, I’m kind of over the candyfloss hair and I dislike the whole dolly vibe. How about you?

On the other hand, I am all about the advertising campaign, which is just gorgeous.
