“Karl Lagerfeld was a legend, a true champion of pop culture, and a wonderful friend and supporter,” said Tommy Hilfiger. “His vision brought undeniable beauty to the world. I’ll forever cherish his friendship, the inspiration, and the opportunities he provided - especially after working closely together on the Karl Lagerfeld brand.

So tonight, we celebrate Karl and his endless imagination and extraordinary talent.”
