Chanel’s Creative Director Karl Lagerfeld finally reveals his Age


A man of mystery who has kept the world guessing about his true age finally reveals he is 77 years-old in an interview with French magazine, Paris Match. Confusing and inviting people into playing the guessing game, he held a 70th Birthday bash in 2008 and a birthday party 4 years later celebrating his 79th birthday. The well-dressed man in his dapper fashion uniform that includes his dark sunglasses, a high-collared white shirt and fingerless leather gloves stated his real birth date is 10 September 1935, which he discovered only after his mother died!

“My mother changed the date. It was easier to make a 3 or an 8,” he said without elaborating. “I found this out after her death and I don’t know why she did it.”
