    KARL LAGERFELD received the Legion of Honour award at the Elysée presidential palace on Thursday followed by a garden party hosted by the French President himself. The custom-made award was presented in the company of Chanel owners Alain and Gérard Wertheimer, Chanel ceo Maureen Chiquet, president of the label's fashion activities Bruno Pavlovsky, Chanel creative director of make-up Peter Phillips and Chanel muse Amanda Harlech.
    President Sarkozy offered high praise for the designer commenting on his insatiable work ethic, seeming impressed by the speedy fashion cycle.

    Over the past year a host of fashion greats have been awarded the honour including Louis Vuitton creative director Marc Jacobs, as well as mother and daughter Sonia and Nathalie Rykiel.
