Karl Lagerfeld's Forgotten Sister

We never really thought about fashion god Karl Lagerfeld's family outside of his creative world but OMGBlog uncovers his sister who is alive and well in the United States! Sneaky Uncle Karl!

The two grew up together in Germany. Christiane recalls that the 'precocious' Karl preferred to paint rather than play with other children. She says he loved to find old paintings and paint on the other side of the canvas Karl went on to design for Balmain after winning a coat contest in 1955. His visits to his family in Germany diminished as his fame in Paris grew Christiane became an au pair to a couple in Seattle and started a life with her late husband, Robert. She now has grandchildren who hope to meet her brother one day
