According to the Guardian’s Leila Latif Karl Lagerfeld is coming a perfect set for people who don’t know high fashion. “It’s an accessible series and you don’t need to know much more than a few names to enjoy their beautiful dresses and biting humor.”

Decadent and boisterous

“(The series) looks fantastic. It’s raunchy, decadent, saucy, jealousy-filled, high-society, competitive, high-stakes jokes. Soundtracked by Diana Ross’ killer outfits and bravado.” said Victoria Moss of the London Evening Standard.
