also, it's interesting to mention that Hedi has been at Dior where St. Laurent got his start.

the latest reaction from Karl on ' The Beautiful Fall ' from The Herald Tribune :

Quote:
Lagerfeld takes "Beautiful Fall" author to court

By Suzy Menkes
Published: December 11, 2006


PARIS: IN an unusual move by a celebrity fashion designer, Karl Lagerfeld has started legal action in the French courts, requesting damages for intrusion into his private life.
A court decision is expected Jan. 15 at the Palais de Justice as to whether "The Beautiful Fall," by the British- born, Paris-based journalist Alicia Drake, is guilty of invasion of privacy in a country with strong legal protection for private life.
The book is a study of Paris fashion in the 1970s and in particular the rivalry between its two star designers of the period, Lagerfeld and Yves Saint Laurent.
It includes discussions of homosexuality and drug-fueled parties, although not necessarily implicating Lagerfeld himself.

Discussing such subjects, even when the events took place 30 years ago, could be seen as invasion of privacy under French law.
Two court sessions have already been held, on Nov. 13 and 20 at the Tribunal de Grande Instance. Lagerfeld's claim was for an "atteinte à la vie privée" (breach of privacy) set out in Article 9 of the French Civil Code.
The plaintiff altered his demands for damages between the two hearings, according to legal information made available to the International Herald Tribune. The sessions were open to the public.
Lagerfeld complained openly on the book's publication in September that passages supposedly revealing his real age as 73 and discussing his German background were built on unreliable family sources.
The book is published by Bloomsbury in Britain and Little, Brown & Co. in the United States. It has not been translated into French, and reportedly is no longer available in its English version in France. Three Paris bookshops — Brentano, Galignani and WH Smith — confirmed Monday that they had stopped selling the book.
Alicia Drake, reached at her Paris home on Monday, replied: "no comment."
Her lawyer, registered in the case as Maître Marie-Avril Roux, confirmed Monday that two audiences had been held in November in the Paris tribunal's 17th chamber, which specializes in privacy cases, that there was no claim of libel, that damages were discussed and that the judge's verdict would be given in January.
She added that there was currently no formal legal injunction forbidding the sale of the book in France.
Lagerfeld's lawyer, Maître Céline Degoulet, confirmed the January judgment and said that from her point of view, the case had already acheived its major goal: the book has been voluntarily withdrawn from France. Lagerfeld himself was not available for comment before press deadlines.
Pierre Bergé, the partner of Saint Laurent, whose personal life is also discussed in the book, said on Monday that he had no intention of going to court.
"I would never do a legal procedure — it is not worth it," he said in a telephone interview.
"The comments in the book are not so grave," he added. "I don't find it all that bad. It would have had to have been an attack on the person and character of Yves Saint Laurent. There is a lot of complicity between designers and the press, but we must leave writers some space and freedom and not tie their hands."

Yves has always been the man of peace, he didn't care at all.

I wasn't sure about this book at first, but since it's getting such good reviews, I may pick it up.

i've heard that karl sued the author of the book. because she said Karl could lie about his childhood and because she said he was 73!

it's good to have a strong background in fashion history if you are going to read it. She's done her research extremely well. It's a pretty amazing book, both academic and entertaining.
