I'm pretty sure he's 65. Was he wearing a skinny tie, with a collar pin?
my theory (based on what gossip i've read) is that he is smitten with hedi slimane and thus lost all that weight to fit into as thin jeans as hedi can, thus resulting in his bizarro look
Yup, that's true. I've got an interview with Lagerfeld in front of me, where he discusses his new diet book: "One morning I woke up and found that I wasn't happy with my physique anymore. I hadn't been unhappy with my weight... but suddenly I wanted to dress differently. I wanted to wear menswear by Hedi Slimane. But to wear these styles... I needed to lose at least 40 kilos." Yikes. If I lost 40 kilos, I'd very nearly cease to exist...
