At this week's Gordon Parks Foundation dinner, Elle asked Karl Lagerfeld who he'd pick to write his biography. “Whoever has time, because I couldn’t care less. Today nobody’s really found the real story," he answered. And he definitely won't go out of his way to throw would-be biographers a bone: "I don’t have too much consideration for the poor people who try to write that book ... But it’s interesting that people in fact are lazy. If they worked hard they would find interesting things. Nobody finds it! So I’m in a position to say ‘Fuck you, you’re all lazy pigs.’ And I certainly won’t help them!” [Elle.com]
