As I reported earlier in the year, some French TV channel paid Karl Lagerfeld to report on the Jubilee. This is genius. So at this hour of the morning - enjoy some of his lovely commentary. My personal pick is the quote about Princess Anne and her dressing like a man. Brilliant.
“She (KM) shows us that she has a bottom just as lovely as her sister’s.”
“For her part, for what she is, it is difficult to see what other outfit the Queen could have worn that would be better.”
“Princess Anne dressed like a man. I find this very chic.”
“I would have dressed the Queen in a cape, it would have been prettier than her shawl.”
“It’s surprising in the 21st century, in a modern city like London, to find yourself in a Canaletto painting.”
“The Queen does not give into the escalation of emotions, I find this remoteness very elegant.”
“Kate Middleton has a silhouette that makes it easy to be flawless.”
“The queen is mysterious but human, without mystery it would not do.”
“The rain gives a sort of poetry that the blazing sun would not, this weather makes the ceremony more surreal."
“I asked my parents to buy my first television to follow the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II.”
