Iconic fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld had died this morning, it has been confirmed.

The designer was known for his work as longtime creative director of both Chanel and Fendi, as well as his own label.

Sky News reported that the 85-year-old was taken to the American Hospital in Paris on Monday and died today.

He had missed a number of fashion shows due to ill health and in January, he skipped his final bow at Chanel's Paris Fashion Week show.

Karl began his career as an assistant to Pierre Balmain in 1955 and joined Fendi in 1967 before joining Chanel in 1983.

His cause of death has not yet been released. 

Our thoughts are with his nearest and dearest at this time.

Have you ever been to a wedding where you have to endure the speeches BEFORE you were served the starter?

It's a long enough day, and no matter how hard we try to pay attention to the funny stories being told at the top table – our rumbling stomachs completely distract us. 

It's pure torture, right? And all your want is to lock your lips around some grub. 

We imagine at the Golden Globes something similar goes down – so, here comes Melissa McCarthy to the rescue.

The absolute legend smuggled in 30 sandwiches into the award ceremony and began handing them out.

Celebs got to satisfy their hunger pangs with a good old traditional ham and cheese combo.

Confirming the smuggling of the food items, Melissa told Variety: “I’ve been handing them out to everyone."

And for 2020, Melissa is planning to go bigger: “Next year, I’m bringing hot dogs,” she added – Brilliant.

The food seemed to go down a treat as Olivia Colman even referenced them in her acceptance speech.

Actress Jessica Chastain asked the question everyone wanted to know: "How did she get them in here?” she wondered.

“But it’s a good idea because by the time you get into the ballroom dinner has already been served, and you’re always so hungry,” she added.

Did Melissa tape them to her body? Have a hidden picnic basket smuggled in? – We may never find out. 

However, the actress didn't opt for cheap and cheerful sandwiches, as the pic of the item given to Variety shows that it was from Joan's on Third.

The “fromager d’affinois and apricot glazed ham” sandwich will set you back 7.95 US dollars (£6.24/€6.95) a piece – so she's a true friend.

What a hero.

We were struggling to think of what could be better than one Tom Hardy. Then we saw the trailer for Legend and quickly figured it all out.

Two Tom Hardys! Mystery solved.

Not only is he one of our favourite celebrity dads, but we're not going to say no to twice the screen time dedicated to the star in his latest fim. 

After playing a hero in the recently uber-successful Mad Max with Charlize Theron, Tom, 37, has taken on the role of not one terrifyingly creeping dude, but two.

Taking on the dual role of the Kray brothers, Tom was directed by Brian Helgelund who previously directed L.A Confidential. The film is based on the book by John Pearson.

Legend also stars Emily Browning and Taron Egerton, who has said that Hardy’s performance in the film is “totally amazing”.

Taron plays Edward ‘Mad Teddy’ Smith who is the lover of one of Hardy’s characters.

The film follows the story of Reggie and Ronnie Kray. The brothers were real-life gangsters who ruled London’s gritty crime world in the 1950s and 60s. Reggie is dubbed “the gangster prince of the East End” and Ronnie “a one-man mob”.

The two spent their time rubbing shoulders with celebrities while running nightclubs and taking on some seriously dodgy criminal acts, including murder. Sounds pretty shady.

The trailer has us all kinds of Tom Hardy excited, despite all hell inevitably breaking loose.

We’ll have to satisfy ourselves with keeping the trailer on repeat to keep Hardy-withdrawal symptoms at bay as Legend won’t be released on Irish screens until 11 September.

If the music business doesn’t work out for him, Liam Payne is considering a career as a David Beckham lookalike.

The One Direction star attended the launch party for Beck’s H&M swimwear collection last week and it was pointed out how much the pair look like each other!

Liam said, ”People have been saying that a lot recently. It’s probably the most flattering thing anybody can say.

”Becks is pretty much a legend and a hero of all of ours and I do really admire his style. I don’t think anyone can match him but I’ll take it.

”If it all packs in, at least I’ll have a job as a lookalike.”

However, the 20-year-old star is worried that his fans think he’s copying David’s style a little too much, as they both have matching quiff hairstyles, tattoos on their arms and a similar taste in clothes.

Liam said, ”The fans are always pointing it out on Twitter. I’m beginning to worry he’ll think I’m a stalker.

”They make out like if he buys a red jumper, the next day I’m out in a red jumper. I just think the man is a legend.”
