Style stories to talk about over tacos.

Age ain't nothin' but a number — at least according to 82-year-old Karl Lagerfeld (and Aaliyah). Following his spring 2016 presentation for Chanel earlier today, the designer, who also leads Fendi and his own eponymous line, revealed that his contracts are "for life," adding "I don't feel tired at all. I hate slow people. Horrible." Looks like Lagerfeld, like his 81-year-old contemporary Giorgio Armani, isn't going anywhere anytime soon. [British Vogue]

Trailblazing online retailer ModCloth has announced that they will be dropping the "plus" filter from their website, instead incorporating clothing of all sizes in one department. The word "plus" will also soon be eliminated from the site altogether. For those who want to search for clothing only in larger sizes, an "extended sizes" filter will be available. CEO Susan Gregg Koger remarked that the change was in response to customer feedback in a survey of customers who revealed they felt "embarrassed" going to a separate section to shop. [WWD]

Blogger Kristina Bazan has been named as the new ambassador for L'Oreal Paris. The 21-year-old, whose blog, Kayture, has over 2 million monthly page views, will co-create exclusive content for the brand and cover their color-cosmetics events. With over 2 million Instagram followers from all over the globe, L'Oreal hopes the Switzerland-native will help grow the new digital era of the brand's communications. [People Style Watch]

Keanu Reeves, resident Hollywood badass, has signed on for a project with Neiman Marcus' Christmas catalog that will make the holidays that much sweeter. In partnership with the retailer, Reeves has built three custom motorcycles available for $150,000 each. But that's not all — the bike also includes a two-day road trip through Malibu with Reeves and Gard Hollinger, who co-owns the Arch Motorcycle company with the actor. Merry Christmas, indeed.
