You made me feel like a princess. I never quite understood what you saw in me but I am forever grateful for the support that you and Chanel have given me over the last 15 years. Rest In Peace Karl, you were a true genius and will be missed, so much. pic.twitter.com/yRWcrg0Yrq

Karl, you are the brilliant, funny, creative, gracious soul I will always remember from this insane fashion world. I am honored that I have sat at hundreds of your shows (Great Wall of China!), honored to have styled for you (Beijing Olympics!)… pic.twitter.com/BOlaYRYXQG
