What's it like to fly to China with Karl Lagerfeld? Diane Kruger is glad you asked: "Karl is like a dad. I've known him since I was 16 - I would do a lot for Karl. I was once on his plane flying to China. He wouldn't stop talking. After a while, I said to him, 'I have to sleep now Karl.' When I woke up 10 hours later he was still talking to some poor assistant!" [My Fashion Life]
