Chanel's Muses on What It's Really Like Working With Karl Lagerfeld

Meghan Blalock

Karl Lagerfeld is one of the most interesting characters in all of fashion, and he has been for his entire career. He's simultaneously ultra famous and enigmatic—a balance not many people achieve.

Part of Lagerfeld's mystery is that while he grants plenty of interviews, he doesn't often allow cameras around while he's working. But that just changed: Chanel released a behind-the-scenes video of some of his biggest celebrity muses—Kristen Stewart, Lily-Rose Depp, Julianne Moore, and more—talking about what it's like working with him.

"I’m sure that as an artist, Karl works instinctively and compulsively in the same way that he does in all of his mediums," Stewart describes. "But really, as a photographer, there is such a naturalism. Once he sees something, you could be done in five minutes and not even realize that you’ve just finished the entire thing because he just knows exactly what he wants."
