Remember when Karl Lagerfeld said he really liked Adele but in the same breath criticized her for being “a little too fat”? Well, if you don’t–it was some gross bullshit (and add that to the pile of things that aren’t good enough for Karl Lagerfeld).
Anyway, CNN asked Lagerfeld to clarify those awful comments last week, which prompted the Chanel creative director to explain:
“Adele is another problem. [...] I never said that she was fat. I said that she was a little roundish; a little roundish is not fat. But for such a beautiful girl–but after that she lost eight kilos [17.6 pounds] so I think the message was not that bad.”
Weirdly, he did apologize about this already.
If that wasn’t enough lady-hating for your day, do you also remember when he said he didn’t like Pippa Middleton‘s face and thus she should “only show her back”? CNN asked about that too and Lagerfeld didn’t even bother backtracking, insisting:
“I think her sister looks better.”
They then asked if he ever regretted anything he says and he replied, “Not really.”
Oh, he also told CNN that he wants to marry his cat. Which is insufferable, but less so than the other stuff.
