Thanks to a nosey inside her personal diary, we now know every moment of Choupette's day. But never one to be outdone, the cool kitty's owner has opened up about his own grooming habits.
In the inaugural issue of Fairchild’s new quarterly men’s magazine M, Karl 'quote-a-minute' Lagerfeld reveals some fascinating facts about his daily routine and, most intriguingly, the origins of that legendary ponytail. Did you know the white bouffant is now 35 years old? Uh-huh.
'When I was tired of the fashion for long, curly hair – because my hair was curly – I started to attach it,' he says. 'It was in 1976. So that means that I have had the ponytail for 35 or 36 years! Not bad, no?'
Oh yes, there was a time when the world was without Karl's signature pony - we can hardly picture it. But after a thorough investigation through our picture archives, we've uncovered some marvellous snaps of the Kaiser with the aforementioned long, curly locks. What a hunk! Once he'd established the pony, it was circa 1995 that his 'do turned an ashen shade of grey - quelle horreur! - and unhappy with the colour, the white bouffant was born.
'It’s the easiest hairdo. I’m not very gifted for hairdos. I don’t like gel and all those products. It’s perfect with this white powder, because my hair is not that white at all.' 35 (or 36) years later and Karl's dry shampoo addiction is in full swing. He uses Klorane, since you're asking.
As if that wasn't fascinating enough for you Karl fans, there's more! From his bizarre hat complex and flip-flop hate to the time he almost froze to death because he didn’t have the coat he wanted, you'll find them all on Fashionista. He really is the gift that keeps on giving.
