London, March 12 (IANS) Fashion designer-photographer Karl Lagerfeld has unveiled his thoughts on some leading fashion ladies. He says model Cara Delevingne is the Charlie Chaplin of the fashion industry.
“She’s a character. She’s the Charlie Chaplin of the fashion world. She is kind of genius, like a character out of a silent movie. I would see her better in a silent movie than a talkie because she over-accents the movement,” Lagerfeld told The Sunday Times.
“Girls admire her like they used to like Kate Moss. They all want to be as free as her,” he added.
About Moss, he said: “Kate Moss is the free girl of our times. And she was not living on Vichy water all her life.”
He also had a word to say about Victoria Beckham, who he feels “can look cold, but she is not, she’s cheerful.”
About British Queen Elizabeth II, Lagerfeld said: “Nobody does the job better than she does. She is never ridiculous, she is flawless. For this job, in our day, she is perfect.
“She’s not supposed to be a fashion icon who is changing fashion. The Duchess of Cambridge can do that. Kate (Middleton) is chic in a classic way, but sometimes, with her Philip Treacy hats, Camilla is wilder. I know who people who know her. Apparently, she’s full of wit and spirit.”
