Actress and model Lee Sung-kyung will be at a fashion show where the last of Karl Lagerfeld’s designs will be showcased.
Lee Sung-kyung will head to the final Fendi 2019 Autumn/Winter Women’s Collection Show by the late Karl Lagerfeld, which will take place at the Milan Fashion Week.
The famous designer passed away on Tuesday at the age of 85 after leading a life that had a tremendous influence on fashion as we know it today. Lagerfeld is credited with helping to form to what the luxury fashion world is today with his work as creative director of Fendi and Chanel singer 1965 and 1983, respectively.
His signature style, for himself and his collections, could be seen in the cross-section of “high fashion and high camp,” as The New York Times puts it, earned him a legion of admirers including several K-pop stars and models. From G-Dragon and CL to actress Song Hye-kyo, various celebrities who had a chance to meet or work with the prodigious designer posted messages about him as news about his passing spread.
Chanel’s creative director Karl Lagerfeld has passed away.
On February 19th, Chanel announced that the brand’s creative director Karl Lagerfeld had passed away in Paris, France. The sign of death has not been revealed. However, Lagerfeld’s health reportedly had gone worse for the last few weeks. He also did not attend Chanel’s Haute Couture show in Paris last January.
Karl Lagerfeld was originally born in Hamburg, Germany. He moved to Paris at the age of 14 and started working as a designer. First, he started off as Pierre Balmain’s assistant, and worked as a designer at brands including Chloé and Valentino. In 1983, Lagerfeld was appointed as the creative director of Chanel, and his Haute Couture debut show was praised and called the “rebirth of Chanel”.
Meanwhile, many fashion models that have walked his Chanel shows are paying tribute to him on social media. Among them, Korean models Soo Joo and Jung Hoyeon also mourned Lagerfeld.
Lee Dong-Wook becomes the face model for Chanel’s upcoming male cosmetics line, Boy de Chanel!
On August 21, KingKong by Starship Entertainment announced, “Lee Dong-Wook became the brand campaign model for Chanel’s upcoming male cosmetics line, Boy de Chanel.” Along with the announcement, the agency released a single picture of the actor, flaunting his flawless skin and sharp facial features.
This news was especially meaningful because this is the first time a Korean celebrity became the face of a foreign cosmetics brand. While many Korean celebrities have acted as brand ambassadors for foreign cosmetics brands, Lee Dong-Wook is the first Korean celebrity to actually represent the line himself.
Regarding the news, a representative of Chanel commented, “we have a special reason for choosing Lee Dong-Wook to represent our upcoming cosmetics line. We determined that the actor’s confident and masculine image perfectly fit the brand’s value and mission. Furthermore, because the actor receives love from fans all over Asia, we are expecting to gain a very positive effect with him as our brand model.”
Meanwhile, Chanel have chosen South Korea as their first location to launch its first male makeup line “Boy de Chanel” on September 1. Starting in November, it will become available online for the rest of the world, and offline sales will start in January, 2019.

On 26th, Chanel released a new Macau campaign that stars G-Dragon. For the global campaign, Chinese model Liu Wen represented the Paris campaign and singer Willow Smith represented the Tokyo campaign.
