Com o filme “Coco before Chanel“, a revista Harper’s Bazaar convidou o mestre e head-designer da Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld, para “se passar por” Gabrielle e responder algumas perguntinhs. Dá uma olhada:
Harper’s Bazaar: What’s the chicest age to be?
Coco Chanel: It took me 100 years to come back. I’m 40 again!
HB: What are your thoughts on how women dress today?
CC: They say old elegance is apparently dead, so I have to invent a new one.
HB: Your clothing liberated women in the 1920s. Are you still a feminist?
CC: I was never a feminist because I was never ugly enough for that.
HB: What would you change about your looks? Would you consider Botox?
CC: When I look at myself in the mirror, I think I’m pretty modern — whatever that means. But maybe I should change my makeup. In my day, the products were dreadful.
HB: Whom do you most admire in Hollywood?
CC: If in life I had been like the women I see in the movies, I would never have made it.
HB: What inspires you — architecture, an actress…?
CC: An actress. Why not? I was inspired by actresses in the past. However, my biggest inspiration is myself.
HB: Which artists would you surround yourself with?
CC: Jeff Koons to start with.
HB: What’s on your iPod?
CC: The Kills. They suit my character.
HB: Do you watch TV?
CC: TV seems as vulgar as a music hall in my mouth.
HB: You were famous for your paramours. Whom would you have an affair with today?
CC: I like handsome men, so there would be many possibilities, but dukes and princes are not the right escort for a woman like me today. I like to charm younger men. This has not changed.
HB: Where do you holiday?
CC: If not my apartment, La Pausa. I have to look for a place in the South of France.
HB: Do you still smoke and tan?
CC: I am afraid yes, because the attitude of smoking looked great on me, as did a tan.
HB: What are you wearing now, classics or trendier fare like neon and animal prints?
CC: My own designs. If neons and animal prints are in my collection, I’ll wear them.
HB: What’s the new Chanel classic?
CC: As apparently my old jacket is still around, done by this idiot Karl, I have to help him find a new idea.
HB: Would you do any high-street collaborations? With whom?
CC: Adidas or Moncler. I love sport! Or Diesel for jeans. Jeans are chic now and not horrible like in my day.
HB: Who is your fashion nemesis, your modern-day Schiaparelli?
CC: I suppose nearly everybody in the business.
Mando um SALVE pro meu irmão que está de Parabéns (17.08)!
