"She is not a standout beauty," Lagerfeld, 80, told The Gaurdian. "Was it Bacon who said, 'There is not beauty without some strangeness in the proportions'?"
We're sure Lagerfeld meant that in the best way.
Earlier this month, Lagerfeld and Delevingne walked at Chanel Paris Fashion Week together hand in hand. The fashion besties closed his 2014-2015 fall-winter show with a star-studded catwalk strut side by side.
Meanwhile, Lagerfeld says he's not a fan of selfies (don't tell that to Delevingne). Regarding the selfie phenomenon, Lagerfeld said, "They are this horrible thing where you are distorted. The chin is too big, the head is too small. No, this is electronic masturbation."
Funny enough, Lagerfeld shared an adorable close-up photo of himself and Delevingne on Instagram several weeks ago. "#KarlParfums launch dinner at @harrods with @caradelevingne #regram @caraquotes," he captioned the pic.
Delevingne also recently shared an Instagram pic of them hugging with the caption, "Who doesn't want a @karllagerfeld hug? I ❤ U!"
