Karl Lagerfeld on Cara Delevingne, The Queen's Jubilee and Being a Queen

Not a day goes by this week without Karl Lagerfeld, or Queen Karl as he has decided would be a more fitting title, making headlines. This week Lagerfeld has surprised us with his very unexpected collaboration with Snoop Dogg in a music video, and then he proceeded to wow us with a sumptuous Chanel Cruise 2013 collection in Versailles on Monday. Sheesh Karl, over-achieve much?

We thought we’d share some of Karl’s gems from his most recent interview this week. As always, the ponytailed wonder does not disappoint!

Karl on how he LOVES Brit models…

Waxing lyrical about our home-grown ladies Georgia May Jagger and Cara Delevingne? Oh yes we approve of that Mr.Lagerfeld. Kind Karl…maybe that could be his new nickname? “Quick-minded little girls like this; they do not exist in France. Not anymore. If they are funny then they are not French."

Karl on his nickname “King Karl”

"In fashion we have more queens than kings." A wonderfully concise observation.

Karl on the Queen’s Jubilee

"England would not be the same without the Royal Family. If there are scandals, who cares? The Queen is like a monument and England without royalty would have less tourists." Like he did for the Royal Wedding last year, Karl will be doing the commentary for the Queen's Jubilee on French television. And we except there's be a few gems in there...*fishes out French/English dictionary*

Karl on this week's Cruise 2013 collection

“Maybe 99 per cent of the people who see the clothes will never own them, but they can buy the lipstick or the perfume." A harsh but fair financial analysis from Mr.Lagerfeld.
