Ines de la Fressange & Karl Lagerfeld meet in the 80s and he was immediately captivated by her beauty. The French native was 5’10 and the quintessential Parisian girl. Ines was the first model to be exclusively signed to a French couture house, Chanel, serving as muse to Karl throughout the 80s.
The two had a falling out in 1989 that cause Fressange to leave the house. But the two reunited when Karl had Ines walk once more for Chanel at their Spring/Summer 2011 show.
