Stars Put on Tribute for Late Karl Lagerfeld in Paris

Thursday, 20 June 2019 05:37 PM EDT

PARIS (AP) — VIP friends of the Chanel's late designer Karl Lagerfeld have staged a final tribute to his iconic life in Paris.

Portraits of Lagerfeld, who died in February, lined the walls of the Grand Palais Thursday as models Claudia Schiffer and Gigi Hadid joined former French First Lady Carla Bruni and over 1,000 other mourners at a 90-minute memorial.

It featured live theatrical performances from Tilda Swinton and Helen Mirren as well as music by Pharrell Williams. Filmed interviewees included designer Valentino Garavani and Anna Wintour, the powerful US Vogue Editor, who opened the homages.

Wintour said: "He was the original multitasker, a man who did everything at once."

The presence of French First Lady Brigitte Macron was testament to the cultural status of the Chanel and Fendi designer who was not even French, yet dominated the Paris fashion industry for decades.
