Ralph Lauren receives honorary knighthood in London

Ralph Lauren has collected an accolade from Prince Charles and it’s a doozy: "Honorary Knight Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire" for Services to Fashion.

The designer was presented with the insignia, bestowed by Queen Elizabeth II, in a private ceremony Wednesday at Buckingham Palace.

A company statement says Lauren is the first American designer to be recognized with an honorary knighthood. Ralph Lauren Corp. has donated to a breast cancer research center in London and plans to financially support a second center as well.

Lauren said via email he’s always been inspired by the history, traditions and culture of the U.K. and considers the knighthood a “very special moment” as he celebrates 50 years in fashion.

1. --- services to fashion? Fuck. That ain't nuthin'.

Ya all know about the fashion of holes in jeans? Mines got holes in 'em. That's because I can't afford new ones.

I started that trend.

Where's my medal so I can pawn it.
