Memo Pad: Women's World... High-Level Cuts... Karl in Argentina...

Annie Leibovitz revealed she’s about to photograph Justice Sonia Sotomayor for Vogue.

KARL IN ARGENTINA: Hosted by Argentine model Iván de Pineda, Karl Lagerfeld, Claudia Schiffer, Freja Beha Erichsen and Baptiste Giacobini were in Buenos Aires last week to shoot the new Chanel ad campaign and an editorial for German Vogue. What did Lagerfeld look for in Buenos Aires? “Tango, elegance, antiques, and good sunlight,” de Pineda told WWD. “They’re amazed about the size of Buenos Aires, the beauty, the cuisine, the great cultural offer and especially the buildings and architecture.”

The photo shoot was meant to be last Wednesday but because of rain the group had to head to the countryside for the old and picturesque district of San Telmo, where they shot some pictures of Schiffer — with a gaucho hat — in Casa de los Ezeiza, a traditional Argentine house built around 1850 and remodeled in 1980. The sun finally shone Thursday morning, so Lagerfeld and his team made the short trip to Campo & Polo in the Cañuelas countryside to continue the shoot. The designer and his entourage were in Argentina until Sunday. — Moira Malandra
