Karl Lagerfeld's Quotes

  • Catherine Duchess of Cambridge has a nice silhouette and she is the right girl for that boy (Prince William). I like that kind of woman, I like romantic beauties. On the other hand, her sister (Pippa Middleton) struggles. I don't like the sister's face. She should only show her back.
  • [on Meryl Streep after she rejected the Chanel dress made for her to wear at the Oscars] After we gift her a dress that's 100,000 Euros [$105,000], we found later we had to pay [for her to wear it]. We give them dresses, we make the dresses, but we don't pay. (...) She could keep the [rejected] dress because of the size. It's couture. It's perfect for her. (...) A genius actress, but cheapness also, no? [Feb. 23, 2017]
  • I'm very much down to earth, just not this earth.
  • I am puritan at heart, very much so - probably a self-preservation instinct or something like that. I'm hopelessly strait-laced. I've never drunk alcohol or smoked or took drugs. I've always been a bit of an outsider. That's why it's been easier for me to survive than for some others.
  • I'm a kind of fashion nymphomaniac who never gets an orgasm.
