If you were a top model anytime over the past four decades, then chances are that you have a Karl Lagerfeld story—and a memorable one, at that. Since taking the creative helm at Chanel in 1983 and until his death late last month, Lagerfeld was a major proponent in launching models’ careers, and fostering close relationships with them over the decades. Just about every supermodel has walked in at least one Chanel fashion show, from legends like Vendela and Jerry, to ’90s Supers like Claudia Schiffer and Angela Lindvall, and today’s stars like Joan Smalls and Barbara Palvin. One thing they all have in common? An adoration and admiration for the late designer. As Chanel shows their final collection that Lagerfeld worked on before his passing at Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday, 23 top models share their favorite memories of working with the legend, here.
