Karl Lagerfeld adds power to the drift of eccentric models by choosing Inès de la Fressange, 53, for the Chanel catwalk. Spare a reflection for the tall, slim, young and typically beautiful. These are firm times for them, with Paris fashion week declaring them incredibly last season.
Inès de la Fressange, 53, who was Chanel's house model during the 1980s, will revisit to the Chanel catwalk on Tuesday, 21 years after leave-taking ways with the Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld. The casting is momentous since Lagerfeld has waiting now been unapologetic in his partiality for the extremely trim, young models. Last year, Lagerfeld dismissed the size zero dispute as the concern of fat mummies meeting with their bags of crisps in front of the television.
Lagerfeld's choice adds weight to a rising trend towards celebration of a varied vision of beauty at Paris fashion week. Lucy Yeoman’s, the editor of Harpers Bazaar magazine, welcomed the move; saying. When the fashion is really admirable, it looks even better on older models, because they have extra presence. The clothes take on traits, and that is a huge part of what fashion is about.
