'I Am Like A Caricature Of Myself' - The Book Of Karl Lagerfeld's Best Quotes Is Here!

25 September 2013 by

Grazia HQ loves a good Karlism so when news reached us that Monsieur Lagerfeld is releasing a collection of quotations, there was much excitement. This is the man who wishes he could marry his cat and is 'allergic' to flip flops. He's also referred to himself as a 'fashion nymphomaniac who never gets an orgasm’ and described tattoos as 'like living in a Pucci dress full-time'. Chortle. Yep, this is the most quotable man on the planet.

So The World According to Karl is set to be a good'un. The 160-page book is packed with the designer's quick wit and entertaining remarks and we can't wait to get our mitts on it. Lucky for us - and you - we've been treated to a selection of his greatest quotes. For his thoughts on being in shape - 'I had just a little padding. I was quilted' - and thinking pink, click through the gallery above.

The World According to Karl Lagerfeld Book


Famously outspoken, you can expect more off-beat - and sometimes shocking - musings from King Karl. The master of couture offers his ‘bons mots’ on everything from fashion and women to politics and love alongside illustrations by Charles Ameline. The World According to Karl: The Wit and Wisdom of Karl Lagerfeld is now available on Amazon - it's required reading for all Lagerfeld fans.
