Karl Lagerfeld comments on Julianne Moore:
I am so happy Julianne won the Oscar for her great talent. I’ve known her for years and was always her greatest fan – as an actress and also as a woman. She is the perfect illustration of what I understand to be womanhood in the best sense of the word. She is fun, down to earth and an extremely cheerful, lovable person. I am really happy for her.
