She explains that she had heard Lagerfeld gifts everyone a Chanel bag on his first shoot with them, so Kim was as happy as anyone would be to be photographed by the legend and receive a designer bag. However, that wasn't the case. Momager Kris Jenner showed up to the shoot in head-to-toe Chanel and stole the show from there. "I thought she was SO embarrassing, LOL, but Karl loved it so much that he pulled out a Chanel purse—not just any purse, but their beautiful crystal Lego clutch," Kim says. "I got so excited, thinking Karl was going to give me a surprise bag, but instead he goes straight to the Chanel queen herself: Kris Jenner."
Lucky for Kim, three years later she finally got her gift, and then some, when she confessed her story to the designer. "For this Harper’s Bazaar shoot, I finally told Karl and Carine [Roitfeld] this story, and they thought it was hilarious,” she writes. "At the end of the shoot, Karl surprised me with not one but TWO Chanel bags. I will forever be grateful for SUCH a special moment. My dream of getting a Chanel bag from Karl finally came true!" Um, can you say, #goals?
