France, the ever-famed fashion capital of the world, has taken its emphasis on chic fashion a step further by asking Chanel legend Karl Lagerfeld to design their 2009 edition dictionary.

This dictionary, entitled "La Petit Larousse Illustre 2009," is expected to be happily owned by many French, Canadian and American VIPs. Karl Lagerfeld's famous illustrations don the box and dictionary covers; they depict Lagerfeld, dressed to the nines, as well as La Semeuse, who is wearing only blue satin gloves and blowing the seeds of knowledge into the wind.
