Oh HELL no.Karl Lagerfeld is at it again, spewing cross-stitched nuggets of craziness. After taking a lot of flack, rightfully, for calling Adele "a little too fat," the fashion designer has now lobbed a new insult at a new British It girl: Pippa Middleton.
Never one to mince words (or think before speaking?), the Chanel designer recently referred to the Duchess of Cambridge's sister as a butter face, saying that he liked everything about her ... but her face.
Full disclosure, those aren't the exact words Lagerfeld used when talking about the Royal Adjacent, but they're pretty damn close. Lagerfeld told UK paper, The Sun: "Kate Middleton has a nice silhouette and she is the right girl for [Prince William]. 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."
What the frak? The hell says that? And moreover, who thinks that? Pippa may not be every (sane) person's cuppa tea, but to say that she shouldn't show her face -- just her ass -- like she's some sort of bedraggled sea hag with toned glutes is a little dramatic. And it's more than a little rude.
I get that Uncle Karl is all high-fashion and fah-bulous and eccentric and perhaps a little senile (he's pushing 80), but dude needs to learn when to shut it down. Insulting a woman's face -- or her body -- is so not chic. The creative director for Chanel should know that.
Do you think Karl Lagerfeld needs to pipe down?
