Chanel Legendary Designer Karl Lagerfeld Cremated

The fashion community gathered to say a final goodbye to legendary designer Karl Lagerfeld at his funeral on Friday afternoon, with some of the industry's leading lights turning out to celebrate the life of the style icon. 

Lagerfeld, who once famously quipped 'I'd rather die' than be buried was cremated in Nanterre, west of Paris, and it is thought that his ashes would be scattered with those of his mother, and his late partner Jacques de Bascher, who died of AIDS in 1989.
