KEEPING UP WITH KARL: Karl Lagerfeld, whipping through Hollywood this week on a whirlwind shoot of Icons at Home for Interview, as reported, was so obsessed with what to wear in L.A. he called up editor Ingrid Sischy before he flew over to ask, "What am I supposed to wear?" When Sischy replied that he would be behind the camera, not in front of it —shooting such luminaries as Benecio Del Toro, Faye Dunaway, Nicole Kidman and Arnold Schwarzenegger — Lagerfeld replied, "I don't know how to dress in Los Angeles!" In the end, he wound up with a wardrobe of his own specially designed-Diesel jeans (size 25 women’s; they’d been worn by a female model on the runway), a Hedi Slimane Dior Homme white shirt and skinny tie and belt, announcing in Arnold’s Malibu home, "I always wanted to be a clothing hanger — and now I am!" Choosing to remain that way, he blew off the well-catered lunch and stuck to his staple: Diet Coke. Meanwhile, the two Austrians got on like a house on fire, and spoke German with an Austrian accent throughout the entire shoot — talking fashion. Turns out, Arnold’s almost as obsessed with clothes and fit as Lagerfeld is. Is there some Dior Homme in his future?

Lagerfeld also brought over his Chanel team for hair and makeup: Stephane Marais and Odile Gilbert.
