Karl Lagerfeld To Carine Roitfeld: ‘It Would Be Difficult To Have An Ugly Daughter’ (Huffington Post)
“We cannot make this stuff up. In one of the best interviews we’ve read all year, Karl Lagerfeld sat down with former Vogue Paris editor-in-chief Carine Roitfeld for Interview‘s September issue to talk about, well, everything: shooting nudes, their artistic inspirations and that catchphrase that just won’t go away, “porno chic.” One of the best parts, however, came when the Chanel designer brought up the topic of children: “No one can say that you don’t take care of them. You’re also lucky because they are very beautiful. It would have been difficult to have an ugly daughter.”
