Model Sigrid Agren, , dispersed with the banal interview questions and got straight to the point in a backstage interview with Karl at the Chanel show in Paris.
Karl, what is your advice on becoming a supermodel? He responds:
It’s not being perfect. What one needs is a face that people can identify in a second. That’s why the girls who were famous in the ‘90s can still work for advertising. People know their faces. The little blonde Russian, Sasha (Pivovarava), , has a face people can remember instantly, but for other models today, people think, Is she this one or that one?

It depends on what you are ready to give, the kind of life you bring, what may be exciting or disappointing … You can’t accuse anyone of not doing enough to help you, because, besides yourself, there’s nothing anyone can do. You have to be given what’s needed by nature, and what’s needed is to bring something new. But it’s the most … (hits hand on table) unjust … (hits hand on table) thing in the world.
