Someone is actually giving Karl Lagerfeld a mike and letting him talk on live TV. We can't wait.
For the Kaiser's latest project, he's been tapped to give live commentary on French TV during coverage of Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee celebration.
On June 3, which is the main weekend when everyone will be partying for the Jubilee, Lagerfeld will join two French journalists on France 2 to give his two cents on the celebration. He did something similar during the Royal Wedding, and got upwards of 5 million viewers, according to WWD. I mean, wouldn't you tune in for that?
Don't expect him to insult her, though. It seems like he's a pretty big fan. When he guest edited Metro this past February he drew a lovely sketch (at left) and said:
I think [Queen Elizabeth] looks very good in her recent photos even better than a few years ago – beautiful, a bit like Queen Mary. She looks a little bit like her grandmother – a more smiley version. In terms of what she wears, she's come into herself a little bit more – whatever that is.
Just to put things into perspective, that issue of Metro is also where he made his now-infamous "Adele is fat" comment. We really think Karl needs to get his own reality TV show.
