Karl Lagerfeld claimed tests showed he was totally healthy just months before his death.

The late fashion icon – who died yesterday aged 85 – gave an update on his health last April and he predicted he’d live another 10 years.

During a chat with Numero.com , the Chanel boss said he’d undergone a battery of tests and been given a clean bill of health.

He said: "I’ve had every test under the sun and they can’t find anything wrong

“Call me back in 10 years and we’ll talk about it again.”

The late designer added that he was in good shape physically after giving up a diet that lasted 15 years.

Lagerfeld added: "Yes [I’m in good shape]… That said I don’t get fat anymore.

"I was on a diet for 15 years, but now I can eat all I want without ever gaining a gram. It’s very strange."

He went on to insist his work leading the design team at Chanel kept him fit.


Lagerfeld’s death was confirmed yesterday after he passed away in a Paris hospital aged 85.

Reports suggest he was battling pancreatic cancer.

In the chat in April, 2018, the designer also revealed his funeral plans – insisting he wanted to be cremated and asked for his ashes to be interred with those of his beloved mother.

He also made it clear that he wanted to have his ashes mixed with those of his cat, Choupette, if she died before him.

He has been survived by his furry companion Choupette, who was famous in her own right for her lavish lifestyle and lucrative modelling contracts.

His loss has been mourned by fans and famous faces across the globe, with celebrity tributes coming in from stars such as Victoria Beckham, Naomi Campbell and Kylie Minogue.
