Karl Lagerfeld has stirred controversy by saying he â€œdoesnâ€™t likeâ€ Pippa Middletonâ€™s face, and that she should â€œonly show her back.â€
The creative director of Chanel, who is affectionately referred to as â€œUncle Karlâ€ in the fashion industry due to his lack of diplomacy, added further insult to injury by adding that he likes â€œromantic beautiesâ€ like Pippaâ€™s sister Kate, but that Pippa â€œclearly strugglesâ€.
While thereâ€™s been no comment from either Middleton camp, itâ€™s certainly not the first time Lagerfeld has publically declared his distaste for someone.
In February this year, he stunned fans by referring to singer Adele as â€œa little too fatâ€, to which she retorted, â€œI represent the majority of women and I’m very proud of that.â€
The sentiment obviously hit home, as Lagerfeld hastily couriered a â€œlarge selectionâ€ of Chanel handbags to the singer as an apology.
“Iâ€™d like to say to Adele that I am your biggest admirer,” he said at the time. â€œSometimes when you take a sentence out of the article it changes the meaning of the thought. Adele is my favorite singer and I am a great admirer of her.â€
Despite his foot-in-mouth syndrome, Karl Lagerfeld has a host of celebrity fans including Diane Kruger, Blake Lively and Keira Knightley.
â€œIâ€™ve known him since I was sixteen years old and today heâ€™s both a friend and a neighbour,â€ says Kruger.MYNEWSHUB
