Peter LIndbergh is a superstar!!!
THIS IS INSANE!! Look at her eyes! I am so happy that I had the pleasure of meeting Linda Evanglista at Hotel Continental in Oslo when she was there shooting the Chloé campaign with Karl Lagerfeld. The pictures were taken at Bogstad Gård, and one of the models were Pål Vasbotten, founder of Oslo Fashion Week. Linda was the nicest person on earth! Viva Linda! In this clip she is working with Peter Lindbergh. I am lucky enough to be in the possession of two enormous photos of Linda, taken by Peter Lindbergh.
In July my nephews Even and Jørn Ståle Norheim joined me for a tour at the Aquarium in Bergen. Even took these snapshots with his cellphone camera and mailed to me. A visit to the Aquarium in Bergen is highly recommended, and the attratction has now become a prime time TV-series on Norwegian television.

I made this logo for my friend Bente. As you can tell, I borrowed Betty Boop from Brandsoftheworld.com and gave her some more curves and new colors. Do you wonder why we call her Bente BOOB? - I will not tell you...

I have lived at Grünerløkka in Oslo in several periods of my life, and I am really fond of this part of the Norwegian capital. I found these snapshots by chance on my computer, and I know I have more of them somewhere. I will add more whenever I find them. These shots were taken in a backyard at Nordregate in between a fashion shoot.

I like the structure of the rocks and the plastic and the way it kinda blends together. But, pollution is a shame. This picture is from my photo archives, and was taken in Bulandet village. It is a small pond of water in an area called "Klona". The owner of the plastic remains unkown.

Here are some samples from a calender I designed at school. The pictures are by Peter Lindbergh, one of my favourite photographers. The Look Out organisation was a pure invention that I made up. Look at how I used the red ribbon...

This is a flyer I made last year for a night club. I like the combination of simplicity and complexity, and that there is only one colour in the design, solid red.

This is a little collage with some of my design projects, just to give you an idea of how I put things together. More details later.

And now Karl Lagerfeld has photographed the sports car, interpreting its design in an unusual new light. These photographs will appear in an art calendar entitled “Kaleidoscopic Vision of a Car”.
Lagerfeld breaks down the overall design of the R8, developed by de’Silva from “individual signals”, by working with reflections and making the images abstract – similar to the view through a kaleidoscope. The black and white photographs convey completely new, exciting perspectives.
“Seeing this emotion-stirring sports car through the eyes of a design icon such as Karl Lagerfeld is an impressive experience – and heightens the anticipation of all those who have already ordered it even further,” commented Ralph Weyler, Board Member for Marketing and Sales at AUDI AG.
The photographs were shot in the south of France, in Ramatuelle near Saint-Tropez.
Sitting at the wheel of the R8 is the American Brad Kroenig, currently the most in-demand male model, whom the couturier has been photographing for five years for his long-term study “One Man Shown”.
Karl Lagerfeld in person presented the images in a photo exhibition at the Audi Forum New York on 12 May 2007. The exclusive art calendar will be available only to buyers of the Audi R8.

Now available at Steen & Strøm in Oslo, check out Karl Lagerfeld´s new brand and collection, K. High Five!
Karl Lagerfeld is widely recognized as one of the more influential fashion designers of the late 20th century.
He made his name as an independent creator who collaborated with a variety of different fashion labels, including Chloé, Fendi and Chanel.
In 2004 he designed some outfits for the international music artist's Madonna Re-Invention tour, and recently designed outfits for Kylie Minogue's Showgirls tour.
As a photographer, Lagerfeld produced "Visionaire 23: The Emperor's New Clothes", a series of nude pictures of South African model David Miller.
