The fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld died on February 19, 2019, at age 85. On February 18, 2019, Karl was taken to the American Hospital of Paris. Alas, the next morning, he expired!

Last week, the singer was in a fashion-related controversy. She apologized over designs for her collection. Fans criticized the designs for their resemblance to blackface.

Subsequently, Perry pulled the shoes from retail and issued an apology. Perry explained,

I was saddened when it was brought to my attention that it was being compared to painful images reminiscent of blackface. Our intention was never to inflict any pain. We have immediately removed them.

The singer who recently engaged to Orlando Bloom told that the intention behind making the shoes was ”a nod to modern art and surrealism.”

Katy Perry and her fiance Orlando Bloom engaged around February 14 February 2019. Prior to this, Katy Perry was in a married relationship with husband Russell Brand. Similarly, for Orlando Bloom, he was also in wedlock with partner Miranda Kerr previously.
