Karl Lagerfeld Doesn’t Seem To Be So Sure About His Real Age

Rachel Krause / April 27, 2013

“My mother had changed the date [of my birthday]. It was easier to make a three or an eight. I learned after my mother died, and I do not know why she did it.”

Why am I not all that surprised to learn that Karl Lagerfeld may not exactly know his real age? According to Wikipedia the Chanel designer is 79, but he had a 70th birthday bash in 2008, and now he’s reportedly revealed to Paris Match that he’s actually 77, and also something about a 3 or an 8. So. Inconclusive! Which is all the more reason to believe that he is not, in fact, human after all, right? [Fashionista]
