Karl Lagerfeld is taking Chanel's next Métier d'Arts show to Texas! When asked why he made the decision, he said: "I love Texas. I love Texans. There's another reason. When Chanel reopened, the French press was beyond nasty. The only press that understood it immediately was the American press, and Neiman Marcus gave her the Oscar for her collection, so I think it's a nice thing to go there." Here's hoping they erect a larger-than-life ode to the lone star state. We're gunning for a giant snake encrusted with jewels. [via The Cut]

155336682-300x401.jpgFashionista helpfully pulled the best quotes from the Harper's Bazaar article "24 Hours with Roberto Cavalli." Here are our favorites:

1) "I cannot sleep when I am dressed. I have to be naked. I am like Marilyn Monroe."
2) "I used to have a small tiger and a monkey but not anymore. The monkey was mean."
3) "I went to Papua New Guinea a couple of years ago and met one of the last cannibal tribes existing on the planet. Very exciting!"
