Never one to make a dull statement, Karl Lagerfeld has revealed his feelings towards some modern day style icons, plus his surprising beauty ritual...

"My mother had beautiful white hair," Karl Lagerfeld told the British newspaper The Sunday Times yesterday, continuing, "Mine is a little peepee yellow, so that's why I put the white powder [dry shampoo] in."

And that wasn't the only revelation; the fashion mastermind also revealed his feelings towards his favourite model of the moment, Cara Delevingne, "She's a character. She's the Charlie Chaplin of the fashion world," he said. "She is kind of genius, like a character out of a silent movie. I would see her better in a silent movie than a talkie because she over-accents the movement. Girls admire her like they used to Kate Moss, they all want to be as free as her."

Going on to talk about Moss some more, Lagerfeld commented, "She's the free girl of our times. And she was not living on Vichy water all her life." Plus Victoria Beckham, "She can look cold, but she is not, she's cheerful," and the Queen, "Nobody does the job better than she does," he said of the British monarch. "She is never ridiculous, She is flawless. For this job, in our day, she is perfect. She's not supposed to be a fashion icon who is changing fashion. The Duchess of Cambridge can do that. Kate is chic in a classic way, but sometimes, with her Philip Treacy hats, Camilla is wilder. I know people who know her. Apparently, she's full of wit and spirit."
