A pink, luxurious ode to Dom Perignon Rose Champagne from Karl Lagerfeld.

'Right from the beginning, Karl Lagerfeld conceived Room Service as a multi-track matrix: a series of photos, a short film and an unusual version of the song "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend," all collected in one deluxe volume. The project began when Lagerfeld was commissioned to create a campaign for Dom Perignon. The storyline he created was an ultra-contemporary fairy tale that recounted an irresistible attraction between two solitary and seductive hedonists whose paths cross at one of Paris's finest hotels--the woman played by Eva Herzigova, and the man by Brad Kroenig. Lagerfeld shot photographs of the stranger-couple's erotic encounter, and Johan Renck shot the film, all in the luxurious George V hotel... For the song, Lagerfeld chose neo-folk singer/songwriter Devendra Banhart.' (from the publisher's description).

The clothes are from Celine, Dior Couture, Fendi, Givench and Louis Vuitton.
