Ines De La Fressange Ends 20-Year Feud With Karl Lagerfeld, Walks At Chanel (PHOTOS, POLL)

Posted: Updated:

Karl Lagerfeld and Ines de la Fressange settled a decades-old feud on Tuesday, with Ines taking to the runway at Chanel's Spring/Summer 2011 show. De la Fressange, now 53 years old, was the face of the fashion house in the '80s, but she had a falling out with Lagerfeld in 1989, "after a fracas over her lending her likeness to the French republic," according to WWD.

And don't think their fight didn't get ugly. Lagerfeld once said, "I wish her all the luck in the world, just so long as I don't have to see her any more or hear her spoken about." However, the pair recently made up and Karl has even cast Ines in Chanel's spring/summer ad campaign. He told WWD, "She is beyond stunning. Also, she is the Parisienne."

Check out images of Ines from Tuesday's show and from her past Chanel catwalks:
