Can you tell by the photos it was mayhem back there? Apologies for the shaky images: mixing three espressos on an empty stomach with a crowd of jostling, crazed journalists= this photo diary.

Karl's trying to make an escape—his bodyguard has warned everyone to back off.

Before disappearing into a private room (behind a velvet rope!) Karl stops to air kiss a model.
