#TEAMKARL – MARIACARLA BOSCONO
According to Mariacarla Boscono, the story of how she met Karl Lagerfeld is one she hoped he would forget. “It was super embarrassing,” she recalls with a laugh. “For a long time, I thought he didn’t remember, but unfortunately he did!”
She was working temporarily as a fit model in Rome, with no intention to pursue a career as a model. But, whenever Karl came to town, he repeatedly asked for Mariacarla and they started to form a friendship.
“He really made my career, but I never confessed to him that I was “that girl” from the fittings and I thought he’d never remember,” she says. “Many years later, we were shooting a campaign and he said, ‘Remember when you were that fit model?’ He’s a genius. Not only because he’s sharp on top of everything that goes on around him, but he had the emotional intelligence to never put me on the spot and make me feel awkward about where I came from.”
In memory of her dear friend, Mariacarla stars in the KARL LAGERFELD Spring 2020 campaign. Read on to discover more about her.
