Karl Lagerfeld Pares Down His Personal Life

>> Karl Lagerfeld may have just recently designed a whole collection of commemorative Chanel coins, but that doesn't mean he isn't feeling the economic burn. 

In an interview with German weekly De Zeit this week, Karl admits that even he is tightening his belt: "I have moved to a smaller house in Paris, and I don't fancy having so much staff now."

Even his new house in Vermont is "not giant."

It's "very Emily Dickinson . . . In fact it's almost Puritanical. For me it's a new form of modesty."

But don't get carried away with the cost-cutting — he still needs some staff.

"The chambermaid, chauffeur and chef are still musts . . . around the clock."

And the Humvees, he's got to have those.

"I have three of them.  Two here in Paris and one in Monte Carlo.  The Hummer is like a tank and gives me a feeling of security.  I don't want to drive at the same level as the others."
