Lagerfeld made his first outing as the face of Volkswagen on German TV last week, with an advert in which the Chanel designer endorses mid-priced cars.
The ad for Volkswagen Style, a package of extras like alloy rims, tinted privacy glass, sunroofs, etc. for VWs Golf and Polo models, features Lagerfeld snapping away in a car showroom.
He declares the cars stylish enough for Paris (or something French a bit rusty over at ELLE HQ) before a handsome assistant (ahem, Baptiste Giabiconi) informs him that actually, theyre German.
Vas? Lagerfeld drive? Never.
