Cara Delevigne Remembers The Late Karl Lagerfeld In New Vogue Video
The supermodel fondly reminisces on the late fashion icon.
Supermodel Cara Delevigne is the latest of many celebrities to partake in Vogue’s Life in Looks series which has featured famous faces in the past like Kim Kardashian, Cher, Lady Gaga, and Mariah Carey.
In the video, Delevigne gets candid on a total of 21 looks starting from 2002 all the way to 2022 by featuring her appearance in the hit show Only Murders in the Building. Despite delving into her many, many memorable fashion moments ranging from her Met Gala appearances, movie roles, or iconic runway moments, there was one particular moment that stands out from the rest of the video.
When describing her first ever runway show for Chanel back in 2012, she brings up the late creative director Karl Lagerfeld, whom she claims she still loves and adores because of his uplifting and inviting spirit. She recalls how he made her feel calm yet confident during this very anxious moment at the precipice of her modeling career by assuring her that she is “meant to be here.” Delevigne defines this specific Chanel show as the beginning of her long relationship with the house of Chanel, and champions Lagerfeld as a surprisingly private person who had nothing but kindness and mentorship to offer to others within the fashion industry.
At another point in the video when Cara arrived at her Chanel Fall/Winter 2014 show, the supermodel-turned-actress continued her praise and admiration for the late icon. When mentioning the fact that she closed the show alongside Lagerfeld, Delevigne said “he always liked to push me, and I didn’t know he was pushing me into doing things I didn’t know I could”, and she continued by stating “he always asked me my opinion on things and what I would do if I did a fashion show.” The Paper Towns actress proclaimed that Karl made her feel more confident in her creative ideas and pushed her to be the absolute best model and artist that she could possibly be.
Delevigne is not the first individual to praise the late Lagerfeld and his expansive way of inspiring people and making them feel special in his company. Despite the late icon being so private, his legacy will surely live on for generations.
