Designer Karl Lagerfeld is well-known for voicing his often controversial opinions, and the latest victim of the Chanel creative director’s vitriol is none other than the Kate Middleton’s sister, Pippa Middleton.
The outspoken German designer who caused controversy back in February when he called singer Adele ‘fat’ may have landed himself in hot water again with his latest target, 28-year-old Pippa Middleton, aka ‘Her Royal Hotness.’
According to The Sun, the 78-year-old designer was praising the Duchess of Cambridge, when he admitted that her sister isn’t quite his beauty ideal:
‘Kate Middleton has a nice silhouette and she is theright 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,’ he reportedly said.
Ouch! Kaiser Karl isn’t exactly known for mincing his words.
When he does approve of something, he is happy to heap praise where he feels it’s deserved.
At the launch of the Chanel pop-up store in Covent Garden last week, he said of Duchess Kate:
‘She knows pretty well what to wear and what to do. She has a divine silhouette so she can wear anything.
‘She has a sense of what’s right for the moment because you cannot dress like a mad woman in those situations.’
Karl is also a fan of Victoria Beckham’s and has complimented her other-worldly post-baby physique, saying:
‘That body, after four children. There are not so many who have a body like that. She is very disciplined.’
