Karl Lagerfeld has designed a gorgeous costume for Elena Glurdjidze, who performs The Dying Swan as part of the City of London Festival in June.
As a bonus, the article includes another great quote from Karl: "Swans, they are the meanest animals in the world, you know. I had problems with them as a child. They hate children. I was caught by one, so I know. The idea of swans is lovely, and they have a beautiful shape, but they seem more romantic than they in fact are. I don't think really they die like this. They just drop dead, hmm? But who wants to see that?"
