The Fashionable And Fabulous Legacy Of Karl Lagerfeld

Born to a humble German family, Karl Lagerfeld made his mark on the couture fashion scene in his early twenties and never slowed down. He consistently redefined the fashion industry throughout his 65-year career. With his signature white ponytail, dark glasses, and black and white clothes, even Lagerfeld’s outer appearance implied there was something unique and strange about him.

He may have come from humble origins, but his years in fashion turned him into an eccentric, outspoken designer who was not shy of controversy. Read all about the fabulous lifestyle and legacy of Lagerfeld (and his cat).

The famous designer might have redefined luxury, but his addiction to Diet Coke was decidedly middle class. Lagerfeld followed a mostly-liquid diet that was said to include primarily Diet Coke. He kept a separate house just for eating meals and was said to drink an entire soda the moment he woke up.

According to Page Six, Lagerfeld even went so far as to hire a butler who would follow him around at parties with a glass of Diet Coke on a silver tray.
