Karl Lagerfeld is making it pretty clear that he has his favorites when it comes to today’s models in the fashion world. In fact, sources say that the designer shunned aspiring supermodels Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid, they weren’t invited to his recent Chanel runway show in Paris. Instead, Karl’s muse Lily-Rose Depp made her runway debut at the annual Metiers d-Art show.
Even though Lily-Rose has attended many runway shows in the past, this was her first one for Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld. Eyewitnesses say that she walked the runway twice. She modeled two different looks that included a gold crop top and midi skirt and a black tulle-strapped dress.
Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid were also in Paris for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion show but were not invited for Karl Lagerfeld’s Chanel show. Even though Lily-Rose, along with Jaden and Willow Smith, Cara Delevingne, Reese Witherspoon’s daughter Ava Phillipe and Sofia Richie were at the show, Kendall and Gigi were not invited.
Instead, the two girls flew back to the United States and have been spotted in both Los Angeles and Miami relaxing and partying with their group of friends. Surely, if Karl wanted Kendall and Gigi to walk in his runway show, they would have stayed in Paris in a heartbeat.
After all, Lily-Rose would never participate in anything like the Victoria’s Secret Show. Unlike Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid, Lily-Rose considers herself to be Hollywood royalty thanks to her parents, A-lister Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis.
Even though Kendall and Gigi have modeled for a handful of couture campaigns, they don’t have the same connections that someone like Lily-Rose has in the Parisian fashion world. In fact, some insiders have even gone as far as saying that the two girls aren’t even in the same league as Lily-Rose.
Of course, no one knows why Karl didn’t want Kendall and Gigi at his star-studded show. Yet, some sources say that this might be his way of separating the Instagram models from the real models he wants to work with.
Do you think Karl Lagerfeld shunned Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid on purpose? Is this his way of telling the models that they’re simply not good enough for the Chanel brand? Is Karl Lagerfeld making it clear that he would rather work with models like Lily-Rose Depp instead?
