If anyone in fashion has a signature look, it's Karl Lagerfeld. He wears the same sophisticated uniform day in and day out. Key elements include a slicked-back ponytail, oversize sunglasses, a white collared shirt, a black blazer, black pants, and, of course, a pair of gloves. So when he turned up on the red carpet at the British Fashion Awards today wearing—gasp!—an eye-catching metallic coat, we couldn't help but look twice. (In true Lagerfeld form, however, all of the other key pieces of his uniform were present.) Bravo, Karl—this is how you take a fashion risk.
