More French than the French, German born Karl Lagerfeld spouts truisms and false-isms throughout the film Lagerfeld Confidential like a high school student experiencing drugs for the first time.

The incredibly successful and prolific designer for the House of Chanel since 1982, Lagerfeld states, “When I took on Chanel, she was a sleeping beauty … so I had to revive a dead woman.”

On the ephemeral fashion world, the designer decrees, “I love change. I’m attached to nothing.”

And on solitude: “I hate people who can’t be alone.”

But, perhaps my favorite proclamation of all: “People with turbulent lives who spend their lives on cell phones are sexual freelancers.”
