Eniko Mihalik Is Scared of Karl Lagerfeld


>> Eniko Mihalik
, who had her major catwalk debut on for Chanel couture in July 2006, when she first met Karl Lagerfeld, is still unsure of herself around the designer, she tells W:

I was scared of him! I think a lot of people are scared of him, actually. I don't think I've ever really spoken to him — I'm still scared of him! I'm so shy. But every time I get confirmed there, it's still a big thing. If they ever said to me, 'Eniko, we want you to do our show, but you can't do any other shows,' I would be like, 'Ok!'

She wants to hear from Anna Wintour, too »

Speaking of bookings, she would love to hear from Vogue: "American Vogue would be amazing. I know I'm not that type of commercial girl and unfortunately, I don't have the million-dollar smile, but I think Anna Wintour should try me out."

In the meantime, she loves up on her teddy bear Bubu and works out a bit, but she tells the Telegraph: "I can’t work out too much because after two weeks I look like I’ve been training for a year. For a while I worked out with a personal trainer but I started to look like a swimmer with really muscular shoulders. My new thing is to walk on the treadmill while boxing with 1kg weights, listening to fast music. It looks funny but it works."
