Karl Lagerfeld Sketches the President … Using Lipstick?

It seems like Karl Lagerfeld is in the news almost every day (usually for things like insulting Pippa Middleton or designing hula hoop Chanel bags), and today he's making headlines again, this time for sketching an awesome but bizarre portrait of President Obama … as a chef holding a cake in the shape of the White House. We know what you're thinking: huh?

Lagerfeld drew this picture for the German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, and he sketched the portrait using a paint palette of Shu Uemura makeup. Of course he did. We wouldn't expect any less from the Chanel creative director.

The writing at the bottom of the sketch reads, "The Biggest Chef in the World: 10 x 5 Stars." OK, we get that 10 x 5 equals the number of stars on the flag, but we can't really figure out the logic behind the rest of this presidential portrait. But again, this is coming from the same man who makes giant hula hoop-shaped bags and once had a real 240-ton iceberg created for his runway show, so clearly Largerfeld is used to defying logic.

And even if we can't make heads or tails of this drawing, at the very least it inspires us to do our own DIY makeup sketch. Now we have a reason to save our broken lipsticks.

What do you think? Is this drawing of the president really cool or just weird?
