Whilst they may be best friends these days, Kim Kardashian reveals that she hasn’t always been Karl Lagerfeld’s favorite Kardashian. She took to her app to tell a pretty hilarious tale about her first shoot with the Chanel legend back in 2013.
Kim and her hubby Kanye recently graced the cover of Harpers Bazaar in a shoot that was directed by Lagerfeld and legendary fashion photographer Carine Roitfeld. In a blog post on her app, Kim shared some behind the scenes images from the shoot, and recalled the time Karl snubbed her back in 2013.
“Karl made me cry on my first shoot with him,” she says. According to Kim, she had heard that Karl always gave his models a Chanel handbag after their first shoot together, so she had been waiting patiently all day for hers. And then in came momager, Kris Jenner, in head to toe Chanel.
“I thought she was so embarrassing, but Karl loved it so much that he pulled out a Chanel purse – not just any purse but their beautiful crystal Lego clutch,” Kim said, “I got so excited thinking Karl was going to give me a surprise bag, but instead he goes straight to the Chanel queen herself: Kris Jenner.”
2 years on and Kim was finally granted her wish. “For this Harper’s Bazaar shoot, I finally told Karl and Carine this story, and they thought it was hilarious. At the end of the shoot, Karl surprised me with not one but two Chanel bags. I will forever be grateful for such a special moment.”
Considering Kim is one of the worlds highest earning celebs, we’re pretty sure she could have purchased those bags all on her own. We guess it’s the thought that counts.
