Happy Birthday Mr Lagerfeld!
Posted on September 10 2013
It is the king of couture, Karl Lagerfelds birthday today. Although it is unclear whether or not he will be celebrating said birthday, as he has stated in the past that; I hate birthdays. It is also unclear as to what age the designer will be celebrating (if he does) as the year of his birth remains ever elusive. It is believed that the famous fashion designer was born on the 10th of September 1933, but he has never publicly confirmed this - actually to be more precise he has denied it. Karl has stated that his birthday is the 10th of September 1935. Before saying it was 1935 he had claimed that it was 1938 and other reports stated it as 1933. Asked why this was, Karl stated his Mother had changed the date. "My mother had changed the date. It was easier to make a 3 or an 8," Karl said. "I learned after my mother died, and I do not know why she did it." This has left the wider public a little dubious and confused about the true facts, especially since he celebrated his 70th in 2008 and his 79th in 2012! If Karl does decide to celebrate the day he will undoubtedly be doing so with his beloved Siamese cat, Choupette, and lots of diet coke (naturally). Choupette, is a supermodel celebrity in her own right, she has her very own twitter account, iPad, not one but two maids and has been photographed and interviewed for numerous high fashion publications. And well, Karls Diet Coke habit is legendary. I drink Diet Coke from the minute I get up to the minute I go to bed. I can even drink it in the middle of the night, and I can sleep. I don't drink coffee, I don't drink tea, I drink nothing else." Were wondering what this fluffy little powder puff of cat will be getting her beloved owner for his birthday this year (last year it was Dom Perignon). What! no diet coke? So Happy Birthday Mr Lagerfeld, whatever age you truly are. Karl and Choupette Karl Diet coke Karl cupcake
