Karl Lagerfeld was celebrated for his innovative designs, impeccable taste, and distinctive personal style. His signature look included high-collared white shirts, black sunglasses, and a pulled-back silver ponytail.

Lagerfeld’s influence extended beyond clothing; he also dabbled in photography, art, and even collaborated on various creative projects.

Don’t sacrifice yourself too much, because if you sacrifice too much there’s nothing else you can give and nobody will care for you.
