Does Beckham have an original thought?

It would be funny if the completely crushed human spirit revealed by the story wasn't involved: twenty-four hours after Karl Lagerfeld decided Amy Winehouse was a fashion icon, Victoria Beckham has announced that oh, yes, I think Winehouse is a fashion icon:

"She has a real sense of style that I just love. She's very much a fashion icon and I adore what she wears. She's so unique and original."

It's not just that Beckham has clattered and clambered onto a train as it's leaving the station, it's that the desperate fawning is centered around Lagerfeld, a man who dresses like a vicar returning from a cataract operation to take part in a Duran Duran video.

Fucking hell. That's the best description of Karl Lagerfeld that I've ever read.

He always reminds me of a James Bond villan, one of the Roger Moore ones.

On closer inspection he looks like Ian Dury going to a fancy dress party as one of the Blues Brothers.

You say that like it's a bad thing!...but that is accurate.
