Fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld described himself as a “visual version of Homer” recently, as he visited Moscow to present his Greek-themed photographs for the Pirelli calendar, famed for its nudes.

The German designer for Chanel and Fendi fashion houses, dressed models including Hollywood actors Julianne Moore in gold laurel wreathes and gold body paint, while the four male models wore metallic gold codpieces. He chose the theme of Greek mythology for the photo shoot because of his childhood love for sagas such as Homer’s the Iliad, the designer said.
