    So, some of you might not know this, but back in early October Karl Lagerfeld bought property in ... wait for it ... Vermont. Apparently the property is an old "landmark building" on Lake Champlain (you say "landmark," we say ... "farm"? Cows and Karl!), and it reminds the king of Chanel of northern Europe. As if all this weren't shocking enough, it seems the lifestyle change has come with other temptations. Fashionologie reports (via Page Six) that, on a recent Spring 2009 campaign shoot on location in Vermont, Karl had an assistant provide him with "seven loaves of Pennsylvania Wheat Bread and a tub of I Can't Believe It's Not Butter." Seriously, only Karl Lagerfeld would make such an unflinchingly bizarre request, but everyone so far has remarked it does seem exceedingly odd for someone who doesn't eat bread. (Though he does put a bottle of Shu Uemura's Pleasure of Japanese Bath oil in his bath every day.) What's next for the famously restrictive Karl Lagerfeld diet? Cheese?
