What Carl Lagerfeld was waiting for, according to rumors, since spring – French President Nicolas Sarkozy awarded the 76 -year -old designer the Order of the Commander of the Legion of Honor (this Order – the third degree).
The solemn ceremony held in the Champs Elysees was attended by the first lady – Karl Bruni, as well as people close to Kaiser Karl – editors of the French, Russian and Italian Vogue, as well as several friends.
Despite the fact that Lagerfeld was very excited, he gave out a short speech (and correctly, because the brevity, as they say, is a sister of talent!):
Thanks to all! I am very grateful!
By the way, in addition to Karl Lagerfeld, Yves Saint Laurent, Valentino and Georgio Armani were honored in different years.
