Oh, Karl. Are you simply without a filter, as I hope to be when I’m 78, or are you a genius when it comes to staying in the news?
On the occasion of his Selfridge’s pop-up shop’s opening, Karl Lagerfeld echoed his Adele-critical statements to the fashion director of Grazia.
This time the main object of his discontent was royal sibling Pippa Middleton, event planner and owner of a rear that has an Appreciation Society. Apparently she’s also the owner of a face that Karl would prefer not pollute his field of vision:
“Kate Middleton has a nice silhouette and she is the right girl for that boy. I like that kind of woman. I like romantic beauties. On the other hand, her sister struggles. I don't like the sister's face. She should only show her back.”
Though it’s unclear how much Pippa is actually ‘struggling’ with her symmetrical and blemish free face, it’s pretty certain that she won’t be the spokesmodel for Chanel or Fendi any time this century.
He went on to praise Victoria Beckham for barely eating: "And that body, after four children. There are not so many who have a body like that. She is very disciplined. We have the same eating habits.” This must mean that she has two protein shakes, steamed apples, 10 diet cokes and something extremely expensive for dinner, as Karl does.
Lagerfeld went on to cement his status as the salacious grandfather at the fashion world’s family dinner table by calling Heidi Klum fat. Oh, excuse me, “too heavy” to be a catwalk model--though I'm sure she's not hurting for work.
