Karl Lagerfeld Is Giving Away Prom Dresses This Month

  Karl Lagerfeld Is Giving Away Prom Dresses This Month Back in my day, all the 17-year-old girls only wanted to wear BCBG Max Azria dresses. Thanks to Karl Lagerfeld, this year’s batch of prom-goers may end up going to high school’s biggest night out in a dress designed by the man behind Chanel’s most fabulous looks. The designer’s namesake Karl Lagerfeld Paris brand has teamed up with Girls Inc. of New York City, a local organization that works to empower and educate young women, to make sure every girl has the chance to go to prom in a pretty dress.

Legal fight dates back to 2012 when Van Haren tried to sell a red - soled high - heel shoe. Shoe designer Christian Louboutin may be forced to step back from its attempt to stop other companies from selling shoes with red soles — a design feature that the company claims it has exclusive rights to.

Filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, the trademark states that Louboutin has the exclusive right to make red - soled shoes for "women’s high fashion designer footwear." What do all these Louboutins and YSL heels look like? Check out some below
