She made her runway debut in 2019 following his death. “My last day with him was here in New York,” she told People. “We were walking in Central Park at 12 at night and it was really magical.”
She told WWD about how she felt after she walked his posthumous final runway show. “I felt like laughing and crying at the same time, to see all these people who loved him so much celebrating him together. But seeing all this, also it’s the beginning of something else, all that he’s created over all these years.” She added, “We all know he was a genius, but when you got to spend time with him, you discovered that other side, of kindness and sweetness. Over the last year working together with him, especially, we became close, we had a very strong connection. I loved all the conversations I would have with him, he knew so much about everything, and still had so much curiosity to keep on learning.”

In an essay tribute that ran along his retirement, Anna wrote, “He was interested in fashion and eager to talk about it. There was nothing I wanted to talk about less with Roger Federer than fashion. I wanted to talk tennis. We never stopped conversing at cross-purposes this way, him asking me about designers and me brushing off the questions to ask about what he did on the court. But at some point we realized that—even if we never did get the information we wanted—we liked each other enormously. I helped him with some looks, and he did his valiant best to help me with my game.”
Elle Fanning confirmed that she’s going to the Met Gala in an interview with Variety. She told the entertainment site, “I sort of sketch everything out so I did a little sketch – an homage to Karl Lagerfeld, of course. I am truly going on theme.
