Karl Lagerfeld interviews about Cara Delevingne BS at CHANEL FW 2014
Interviewer: And what about Cara — Tell me about Cara Delevingne.
Karl Lagerfeld: She has the modern look. Nobody has as many followers than she has. She is the typical girl of 2014. She is the “it” girl of the moment, because she is not fake. She is a real person.
Interviewer: She’s so appealing, don’t you think?
Karl Lagerfeld: Yes, because there is something real and caring about her — she is not fake.
Interviewer: And you’ve enjoyed working with her for quite a long time?
Karl Lagerfeld: Since she was unknown, yes, because the second I saw her, I knew there was something more to her other than her looks.
Interviewer: You know what’s interesting is that she does not have a model’s proportions though, does she?
Karl Lagerfeld: Yeah, but who cares? Kate Moss was much smaller, too, and Twiggy — this is not needed. What you need is the face, the attitude, and the mood.
This is so inspiring for the millions of young girls who aspire to become couture models, but who are, at the same time, intimidated and discouraged by their height. If Karl Lagerfeld, head designer and creative director of CHANEL: one of the most successful and renown high-fashion couture houses in the world, believes that you can make it in the high-fashion industry, you should, too.
