Slide 1 / 12
Iconic fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld died at the age of 85 in Paris on February 19, 2019, according to Business of Fashion. The larger-than-life personality was one of the most successful and prolific designers in history with an array of credits to his name that included photographer, illustrator, author, but most notably, creative director of luxury labels Chanel, Fendi, and his own namesake collection. Lagerfeld, born in Hamburg, Germany in 1933, took over the reins at the house of Chanel in 1983 where he infused the then-sleepy brand with influences from pop culture, music, and art that would catapult Chanel from classic to cult-favorite. But it was Lagerfeld's ability to marry haute couture with Hollywood that made the high-end company a household name for young shoppers. With celebs including Keira Knightly, Kristen Stewart, and Diane Kruger as muses, the fashion powerhouse redefined lady-like dressing for a new generation.
