Forget Waldo: Where on Earth is the jet-setting king of fashion?

Karl Lagerfeld and fashion are synonymous. With his signature black shades, powder-white ponytail, and social media-savvy cat Choupette, you never know where Chanel's creative director will pop up -- or who with.

Karl is the modern-day Waldo.


So, Stacey Caldwell, vice president at Thakoon, and Ajiri Aki, a fashion video producer, teamed up with illustrator Michelle Baron to create a wacky twist on the Where's Waldo series. Colorful and detailed spreads become hideaways for one of fashion's most recognizable face, who mingles with a long checklist of celebrities and some tres chic locals.

You'll have to squint your eyes and search hard to spot celebrities like the Olsen Twins, Florence Welch, Andre Leon Tally, and Charlize Theron hidden in fashion capitals around the world.

The cross-generational book description reads:

"Always on the go, Karl is everywhere and nowhere at once. Fictional fashion blogger and narrator Florence de la Sabine (you can call her Fleur) must find him. Surely an interview with him will set her website apart from the rest. But where will he turn up?"karl_2.jpg

It continues:

"Roll up your Alexander McQueen skull sleeves and follow Fleur as she takes you through 15 of fashion's most fabulous cities and scenes around the world to find Karl: the Met Gala in New York City; Coqui Coqui beach in Tulum; Shibuya Crossing in Tokyo, the Chanel Fashion Show at the Grand Palais in Paris, to name a few.

Peppered throughout the chic illustrations you will find other instantly recognizable divas and tastemakers, from Anna Wintour to Jay Z and everyone in between. The book also contains a checklist of the notable, must-see favorite discoveries in each location. So keep an eye out... you never know who or what you'll bump into when looking for Karl!"

So grab your reading glasses, and try to keep up with the king of fashion.
