While there are many words to describe Karl Lagerfeld, “goofy” would not be the first that comes to mind. However, the latest issue of Elle Spain gives our favorite faces a Disney makeover---and we love! "La Moda Animada" features hilarious drawings by Ulrich Schröder, placing our beloved designers in an animated world. The Kaiser makes a fabulous Goofy, Domenico Dolce is Mickey, Marc Jacobs is Donald Duck (in a skirt, bien sur) and Donatella Versace is an ultra chic Daisy. Browse through the entire slideshow to view the rest of the cartoons, and we’ll gurantee you’ll be tickled. A perfect, whimsical start to your Monday morning.

Two of Chic's favorite things came together this weekend---fashion and game shows---when Isaac Mizrahi taped an episode of the Jeopardy! Million Dollar Celebrity Invitational. His adversaries? Spinal Tap actor Michael McKean and Charles Shaughnessy (yes, that's Maxwell Sheffield from The Nanny). The semi-finals for the show will air on May 3, 4, and 5, while the finals will air on May 6 and 7. Set those DVRs now---and Isaac, we're rooting for vous!

Tea and Sympathy

We wouldn’t necessarily categorize pouring tea as a taxing activity, but sometimes after a jam-packed week (or at the beginning--bonjour, Monday!), exhaustion simply takes over. So when you are hankering a spot of peppermint tea, but you are simply too weary to lift the porcelain handle, this ingenious little invention takes over. Simply place the pot on the Teapot Frame and gently pour into the cup. Voila! Barely any effort exerted.

The Best Handwriting We've Seen So Far

Our paper product fixation continues! We know your event budgets are abysmal at best, but there is no excuse for a sub-par invite, n'est pas? At the next Daily dinner, expect to see custom work from the divine Queen Quills Calligraphy, masterminded by Emily J. Snyder. This is far from stuffy wedding-envelope fare (although she does do envelope addressing!). Chic is partial to the Sweet Bay style, seen above, which looks pretty brilliant when used in, well, anything from a custom menu to an escort card. Just something to think about when you're planning those summer soirees, fashion loves!

Missoni You Can Sit On

Of all the things to lust after at this week's Salone Internazionale del Mobile, Chic favors this sublime Missoni couch, showed off by Angela, Rosita and the entire Missoni clan at Angela's splendid Milan apartment. A coterie of international aesthetes from Gilles Bensimon to more Italian editors than Chic can count dropped by to admire this confection, which is so imposing in person that it will serve as the center of one's at-home universe. Now if only we could crane it into our fifth floor apartment—or eighth-floor office? Angela, any ideas?

We may be forever loyal to our tried and true Tom Ford cat-eye sunglasses, but let's face it: sometimes, Chic needs to shake it up a bit. Vous aussi? Linda Farrow's selection of shades is truly something we could browse all day, but it's the Jeremy Scott ones that really caught our eye. Sure, there's the Gaga-approved Mickey shades with flip-up "ears," but we also died over the (clockwise) TVSpecs (complete with dials and bunny ears!), Sunvisor (for those days when you need a little extra UV protection), and Bone (works with or without the Bam bam costume) varieties. Time to branch out, non?
