anna wintour and karl lagerfeld

Apart from awards and recognition, Anna Wintour has gained something else. A tennis court built in her honor.

Karl built a tennis court on his property at Biarritz as an enticement for me to visit. Needless to say, this was the first and surely the last time anyone has constructed sporting turf in my honor, but Karl was trying to give me somewhere I could feel at home, where I could be myself” Wintour said at the British Fashion Awards. And she also told the crowd, talking about her next life, that “I would like to come back as Choupette, his extremely beautiful and bourgeois cat, who has two maids, a chef, a personal hairdresser and many diamond necklaces”.
