Iconic fashion designer and creative Karl Lagerfeld passed away on Tuesday morning after being admitted to a hospital. He was 85-years-old.


When the news hit, First Lady Melania Trump, was one of the people who took to social media to pay tribute to the businessman.

Karl Lagerfeld died in Paris after a short illness. He had been admitted to a hospital the night before when he passed away.


His colleagues in the fashion industry took to social media to pay their tributes. First Lady Melania Trump, 48, also took to Instagram and Twitter to honor the businessman.

She wrote, “Today the world lost a creative genius. We will miss you Karl! #RIPKarlLagerfeld.” Included in the post were three photos.


The first image was a sketch for an outfit that Lagerfeld appears to have designed for her. The item was a tailor-made fitted skirt-suit.


The second image showed the complete version of the sketch. She wore the finished item in 2017 with a military man saluting beside her.


At the time, she was meeting the Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, and his wife, Sara Netanyahu. The last image, the first lady shared was of her posing for with the late fashion icon in 2005 at the Chanel Spring/Summer fashion show.


Lagerfeld was best known as the creative director of the French luxury fashion house Chanel. He started in his role in 1993 until his death.


The designer was also the creative director of the Italian fashion house Fendi. His trademark look was his white ponytail and hair, black sunglasses, fingerless gloves, and collars.

For those who didn’t know, Lagerfeld had claimed he was born in 1935 with the internet contradicting that by saying his birth was on September 10, 1933. In 2013, a representative said that the designer was born in 1938.
