Karl Lagerfeld Is Not Like Us

If Karl Lagerfeld were right next to you in the cleaning products aisle, what would you do? What would you say? Would you ask him why he had two models with him? Probably not, wanna know why? Because Karl Lagerfeld can do whatever he wants. So when I tell you next that this staged photo shoot was the first time that Karl has ever stepped into a super market, you probably shouldn’t be too surprised. I mean, when has he ever had a reason to shop for his own groceries, really? When you’re eating like Karl every night, you probably would find yourself in a similar situation.

This photo along with several other photos are featured in a new piece for French Elle showcasing Karl Lagerfeld in a way like you’ve “never seen him before.” Basically he’s photographed in scenarios that would never happen to him in real life such as the grocery shopping or behind the wheel of a car. The fashion designer hasn’t driven a car since he was 18.

“It’s the first time I’ve stepped into a supermarket. It’s crazy — fascinating what one can buy. There’s enough here to easily gain 20 kilos.”


Check out the rest of the pics here.

  1. I would call his problems First world, but then that’s like dissing his status.
    First Universe problems might be apt.
