It’s Friday evening pretty much and Karl Lagerfeld’s here to give you a giggle to laugh-start your weekend.
As well as rather head-scratchingly signing up Kristen Stewart as the new face of Chanel this week, the way past his sell-by date nonagenarian has been over in Texas in the States, scowling at anyone who looks like they may have eaten solids this year and overseeing the Métiers d’Art fashion show.
What’s brilliant about Kanterfeld’s latest senile signing is that K-Stew now has to give Chanel ambassador interviews and pretend to be interested in the clothes – although in the one below she barely suppresses a laugh and talks so fast I’m presuming she snorted a bit too much of the powdered espresso that so often keeps models awake backstage.
Karl also gave an interview – which I love because you don’t really need to listen to what he says, his Franco-Germanic accent is entertaining enough on its own.
Count how many times he says “ergh?” in one minute as the old biddy gropes for words to express himself.
Then curl up with video of the show itself and chuckle as you imagine Kristen having to sit through it and make out as if she’s above it all, with that freshly-cut Chanel cheque burning a hole in her pocket.
