Karl Lagerfeld: The King of Couture
July 10, 2006

He's the flashy king of celebrity couture! Now Karl Lagerfeld spills the beans to "Extra" about some of his most famous Hollywood clients.

From elegant Nicole Kidman to sassy and stylish Lindsay Lohan, Karl Lagerfeld is adored by celebrity fashionistas all over the world, and the feeling is mutual.

"[When] you see her in a crowd, you see only her face," he said of Lohan. "She has what Elizabeth Taylor had, something very special, something you can't buy, can't learn. Something inborn."

Lagerfeld even had words of praise for supermodel Kate Moss after her highly publicized drug scandal. "She does everything people think they shouldn't do," he pointed out. "But they all want to be like Kate Moss; she is always stunning, stylish and totally modern."

But for his latest project -- designing a sexy new campaign for Dom Perignon Rose Champagne -- Lagerfeld has only one stunning beauty in mind: former Va-Va Voom Wonder Bra model Eva Herzigova.

"I wouldn't have done it without her," he insisted. "She's a good actress, and she's totally at ease with herself."

Eva was totally willing to share a little secret with "Extra" about her favorite designer. "He's totally into punk, I must say," she divulged.

So what's Karl's secret to staying at the top of the fashion game, even though he's in his sixties? "No smoking, no drinking, no drugs, nothing," Karl confessed. "I'm the opposite of what I think other people should do to have fun."
