Apparent admission of homosexuality in the documentary Lagerfeld Confidential (2007), although NNDB has not screened this film. He has in the past, however, claimed latent heterosexuality or asexuality. See Harriet Shapiro, "Tout Paris Applauds the Fashionable Vision of Karl Lagerfeld", People, 11 June 1984: "I [liked women] when I was very young, but I quickly realized I didn't want any kind of human liaison. Perhaps I put my passion into other things." Also, Vanessa Grigoriadis, "Karl Lagerfeld, Boy Prince of Fashion", New York magazine, 6 February 2006: "[Lagerfeld] doesn't talk about his sexual orientation and maintains that he never had sexual congress with the man he calls the love of his life, the Parisian It dandy Jacques de Bascher, who called Lagerfeld Mein Kaiser and died of AIDS in 1989."
