On Thursday night, Karl Lagerfeld received the Legion of Honor in France.
Lagerfeld, who almost left speechless, said upon receiving his medal:
"I am much better at making small talk than at giving speeches If it wasn’t for 99 percent of the people in this room, it would all amount to nothing. So in fact, this is for me but it is also for all of you."
Following the ceremony, Karl pAArtied it up with French president Nicolas Sarkozy and his wife Carla Bruni.
Congrats Unkle Karl!
