lagerfeld_olsen_book.jpgThe gals over at The Cut got their mitts on an advanced copy of the Olsen's new style book, Influence (lucky devils) which we first introduced to you in July.

According to them, it's a pearler of a read, if only for the hilarious interview with Karl Lagerfeld, conducted by the twins. As well as Karl, the girls also talk to John Galliano, Christian Louboutin, Terry Richardson, and Margherita Missoni.

The book is due for release on Thursday, but if you're keen for a taste now, then we have a few funny snippets from their chat with Mr Lagerfeld, after the jump...

AO: What do you do now to stay in shape?
KL: Nothing ... I have a doctor who I made a book with that sold five million copies all over the world. Every country bought one, I think, in Russia and Italy and everywhere. But I don't get it - I don't know what Japan is going to do with a European diet book ... Since I started my diet, which was like eight years ago, I haven't touched what I'm not supposed to: sugar, cheese, nothing! I don't even look at it. It looks to me like plastic.

KL: I like to work with models for a long time. Sometimes the girls change, but some girls I work with for years and years. With male models it is different. I hate working with male models.
AO: Ah, well boys come and go!
KL: And I hate doing castings and things like this. "oh no you're not right" - that's horrible to say to someone. I never do castings. Other people do them, and then I see the result of the casting. It's humiliating for the models.

MKO: It can be dangerous when you're driving [in L.A.] particularly, because they follow you in cars and scooters. That's bad. That's not easy.

KL: I had two accidents where I fell asleep - after that I thought it was better that I don't drive. I'll get a driver. I'm a bad driver because I want to look there, there, and up there. I get bored easily - so twice I fall asleep and twice the car is destroyed ... I had nothing [wrong] with me - but both cars were destroyed.

So this is how you become the road safety ambassador for France.
