Karl Lagerfeld: I'm Joan Of Arc Of Design


Karl Lagerfeld Joan of Arc

Karl Lagerfeld sees himself as the ''Joan of Arc of design''.

The 82-year-old fashion designer has compared himself to the French heroine - who believed God told her how to lead the French army to victory as a teenager in the 15th century - because he does whatever his ''inner voices'' say he should.

Asked whether he thinks about the commercial appeal of items when he's designing, he replied: ''I never think about that. I just do what my inner voices tell me. I'm the Joan of Arc of design. I don't ask myself these kind of questions. I'm not a marketing person. I work with instinct. Sometimes I'm surprised myself.''

Romantic Way Attempts To Perfect Joan Of Arc Portrait


My Chemical Romance Gerard Way Joan of Arc

My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way is attempting to perfect a painting that captures his historic heroine Joan of Arc in between shows on their current Projekt Revolution tour.
The avid artist is a huge fan of the heretic-turned-saint and feels compelled to "do serious paintings" of her.
He tells Rolling Stone magazine, "Joan Of Arc is my favourite historical-legendary-whatever figure. Number one, it's a boyish, waifish girl in a suit of armour on a white horse, and that's badass.
"I've always been attracted to that character because it was somebody who was willing to die for what they believed in, and they were probably f**king crazy and, like, touched by the hand of God, and I believe in that s**t... I love Joan Of Arc."

Jenny McCarthy is the people's favourite to play Anna Nicole Smith in a planned new movie about the tragic model, after winning 62 per cent of an online poll.

MCCarthy says, "I don't really think that's a compliment... My friends were calling me up and saying, 'You're in the lead...' I go, 'Thanks?'
"I mean, 'You're in the lead to play Joan of Arc' - 'Right on!' 'MOTHER TERESA...' OK, that's maybe stretching it. I mean, come on."

My Chemical Romance Gerard Way Joan of Arc

Many of the tracks on My Chemical Romance's hit new album THE BLACK PARADE were inspired by a creepy painting singer/songwriter Gerard Way found in a haunted mansion.
The band moved into the spooky Paramour Mansion to write and record the new album and Way stumbled across the mysterious painting one day while he was wracking his brain for inspiration.
He explains, "I had found this painting called MARCH OF THE SAINTS in this dungeon bathroom in the house and (I) thought about processions, Joan of Arc, stuff from childhood, all this Catholic guilt and doubt.
"I started investigating that and soon saw patterns in the songs."
