Karl Lagerfeld displays missing teeth as he flashes a broad grin

He is one of fashion’s most iconic designers. 

So Karl Lagerfeld was naturally a guest of honour on Thursday as he turned on the Christmas lights on Paris’ Champs-Elysee where he was sporting his classic all-black look with trademark sunglasses and his white hair pulled-back.

While he sported his usual look, the 85-year-old designer was transformed slightly as he displayed missing teeth while giddily beaming at the chic event.

Karl was joined by a bevy of revelers as he turned on the lights yet dropped his fashion pout in favour of a beaming grin, which flashed his transformed dentistry.

In April this year, he gave his typically acerbic responses in an interview with Numero magazine as he criticised runway models in comparison to his beloved personal assistant Sébastien Jondeau.

He said: ‘Sébastien embodies a male canon that is the complete opposite of those skinny things with wonky teeth we see on runways… They certainly don’t run the risk of getting harassed. To be honest what they really need is a good dentist.’

The star also proudly discussed his physique and how he stays in good shape saying: ‘I don’t get fat anymore. I was on a diet for 15 years, but now I can eat all I want without ever gaining a gram. It’s very strange.’

On his new appearance, Dr Rhona Eskander spoke to MailOnline about his dentistry and changed look, saying: ‘It looks as though Karl has had his teeth treated with both crowns and veneers…

‘Some of his teeth were obviously being prepped (prepared for crown and veneer replacement) and in the first picture is shows that he had lost the veneers/crowns, which have been replaced in the earlier image…

‘A crown is a type of cap that completely covers a real tooth. It’s usually made from porcelain and is fixed in your mouth. Crowns can be fitted where a tooth has broken, decayed or been damaged, or just to make a tooth look better…

‘To fit a crown, the old tooth will need to be drilled down so it’s like a small peg the crown will be fixed on to. Veneers are new facings for teeth that disguise a discoloured or damaged tooth. To fit a veneer, the front of the tooth is drilled away a little.’ 

Meanwhile, celebrity dentist, Dr Richard Marques, added: ‘Years of neglect and possibly a dental phobia have likely led to this deterioration of Karl’s teeth…

‘He could have also experienced an accident or traumatic incident with the front teeth which has caused them to fracture. Additionally, it is possible he is in the middle of some extensive treatment to have his teeth fixed.’ 

His outing comes after he sent shockwaves earlier this year when he slammed the #MeToo movement while revealing that he is ‘fed up’ with models and actresses speaking up about the sexual harassment they have faced over the years.

In an interview with French magazine Numéro, he suggested models should know what they are getting into, while defending Interview creative director Karl Templer, who has been accused of ‘aggressively’ pulling down models’ underwear. 

‘If you don’t want someone pulling down your panties, don’t become a model,’ he said. ‘Join a nunnery, there’ll always be a place for you in the convent. They’re recruiting even!’ he said.

Karl is the head creative director of Chanel and Fendi, as well as his own eponymous fashion line, and he believes the accusations being made by models are making it nearly impossible for designers to do their jobs.

‘I read somewhere that now, you have to ask models whether they feel comfortable when they are posing,’ he said. ‘That’s opening the door to anything. From then on, as a creator, you don’t do anything anymore.’

The designer said he didn’t believe a ‘single word’ of the accusations against Templer, noting that ‘a girl is complaining that he pulled on her panties and he gets excommunicated from an industry that, until then, worshiped him.’

Fashion photographers Mario Testino and Bruce Weber have also been accused of sexual misconduct this year, while Kate Upton called out Guess founder Paul Marciano for ‘sexually and emotionally harassing women.’

But Karl has taken issue with the fact that that many of the women are sharing their stories of sexual harassment decades after it happened.
