Right as we gear up for Fashion Week in Paris in a couple of weeks, a new documentary on the Karlmeister will hit the small screen. The 52 minute made for television project will air on France 5 on October 3, with an English subtitled version available later.

Even though "Karl Lagerfeld, Un Roi Seul" (A Lone King) touches on Herr Lagerfeld's battles with drugs, depression, and his falling out with the late Yves Saint Laurent, the preview in Paris had its audience roaring with laughter.

According to WWD, Karl is reported to have said, “I hate to see myself, but it’s part of the job. I had an overdose of me.”

Honestly, now, what could be more endearing than a talented designer with a sense of humour?
