What Is Karl Lagerfeld’s Cause Of Death?


Legendary German Designer Karl Lagerfeld died in a hospital in Paris on Tuesday. Many people in the fashion industry have posed questions about his health since he missed 2 Chanel shows last month.

At the close of one of the January shows in Paris, the announcer wished Karl a quick recovery.

More recently, he brought the likes of Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, Cara Delevingne, and Keira Knightley into the fold at Chanel as models.
