Bodyguard hottie Sebastien Jondeau is Karl Lagerfeld’s secret lover…?

So after doing slot of my own research and talking it over with some of my fagulous ladies, I have come to the conclusion that Karl Lagerfeld’s model / bodyguard is also his credit card romance ‘du jour’. Now, I know what you’re thinking: who the hell is Sebastien Jondeau and why do we care? I mean, of course basically every male fashion designer is as gay as the rainbow, with the exception of such notables as Osacr de la Renta, so really what’s new?. Well the reason I care is because Sebastien Jondeau appears to be the closest person in Karl’s life. And for Karl, that’s a very big deal, in a very long career.

For all my fashionistas out there, you know that Karl is a very solitary man. You could throw him on a deserted island, and as along as there’s a pencil, drawing paper, and chiffon in plentiful quantities, he could easily live alone for the rest of his life without a single worry. Don’t take my word for it; just watch his auto-documentary “Lagerfeld Confidential” and you’ll see he cares for few people and loves the single, lonely life just fine.

That said, it could all be a front for the real truth: that Karl’s bodyguard, Sebastien Jondeau, who also has strutted his sexy soccer legs across many Chanel catwalks, is indeed his secret ‘amour’. Could Karl be lovestruck by Jondeau? Can Karl love anyone but his own work?

While Jondeau may be a very sexy ‘jack of all trades’, his relationship with Karl has no doubt boosted his career. He may have also instilled a lot of heat into Karl’s little cold German heart.

That said, it might be much to do about nothing. Given Karl’s very pragmatic approach to life, I would not be the least bit surprised to find out years later that Karl had an open relationship with Jondeau, e.g. Jondeau could sleep with other people, but that in exchange for a life of glamour and runways, Jondeau returns the favor to Karl with a little “bite-your-tongue-senior-citizen-lovin'” 😉

At Karl’s age, I would have no qualms about paying for my romance. You can’t buy love but you can certainly “pay-to-play”.

Claudia Schiffer takes a tumble for Karl Lagerfeld

New Yorkers taking a stroll through the city’s Central Park have been greeted by a rather surprising sight: supermodel Claudia Schiffer sprawled across the grass.

The supermodel lost her footing

Schiffer turned heads while taking part in a photo shoot for Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld.

The 37-year-old supermodel appeared to fall over while wearing a pair of high heel patent boots, but it was not clear if the tumble was an accident, or all part of the plan.

Schiffer enjoyed posing in the sunshine

Aides helped her back on to her feet and she continued with her poses; at one point draping herself over the kerb again.

The veteran model appeared to enjoy her time spent outdoors in the spring sunshine.

Schiffer wore black leggings, a dark wool jacket and a beret for the shoot. She carried a black leather Chanel shoulder bag.

Schiffer is one of the world’s most successful supermodels. She has appeared on more than 500 magazine covers and was estimated to be worth around £38 million in 2002.

Born in Germany, she rose to fame in the 1990s. She was engaged to magician David Copperfield for six years.

In 2002 she married film producer Matthew Vaughan. The couple have two sons and live in London.
