Karl Lagerfeld Reveals Secret Dancing Skills in Havana

Watch the video footage, fresh in from Cuba.

On the day of Chanel's cruise 2016/2017 presentation in Havana, Cuba, designer Karl Lagerfeld told WWD that he was once an accomplished dancer and former cha-cha and tango champion. Have those skills gotten rusty, you ask? No, they sure as hell have not. Though the only evidence we had was the 2002 photograph, above, of the designer with the late Oscar de la Renta breaking it down in Paris. But now the Internet has gifted us fresh video of Lagerfeld hitting the dance floor to percussive Cuban rhythms after Wednesday's cruise show. The spry 82-year-old kept his gloves, sunglasses and sequin Saint Laurent jacket on the whole time and appears to never have broken a sweat.  

See videos of Lagerfeld dancing in Cuba with French actresses Vanessa Paradis and Cécile Cassel on Tuesday night, below.
