Karl Lagerfeld - Karl Lagerfeld Blasts Lack Of Gifted Stylists

Karl Lagerfeld has blasted the lack of ''gifted stylists'' in the fashion industry.

The Chanel designer has collaborated with Carine Roitfeld for The Little Black Jacket tour, a travelling exhibition of images of Chanel's iconic creation worn by personalities from Sarah Jessica Parker to Yoko Ono and Charlotte Casiraghi and he was thrilled to work with her because of her talent.

He explained to WWD: ''It's very stimulating to work with Carine, because there aren't so many gifted stylists, and nothing is more exhausting than to work with an ungifted stylist. That makes a job very difficult.''

The exhibition is based on a book of the same name and Karl admitted he and Carine didn't always agree on who should be included in the exhibition.

Asked how he chose who made the cut, Karl said: ''That's the story and secret between Carine and me. I cannot say that there were real rules. There are people she preferred and people I preferred, and then we mixed it all. It's a mix of different tastes and different choices.

''I love the photo of Uma Thurman [resembling Marlene Dietrich], but she is not like this in life. We made Anja Rubik Japanese. She doesn't look like this either and is playing a part. The idea is the portrait of the personality, or the personality playing a part.''
