Quotables: Karl Lagerfeld Has Feelings About The Middletons

“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.”

Karl Lagerfeld shares some of infinite wisdom on the topic of the Middleton sisters, Kate and Pippa.

Oh man, no one can make me laugh like good ol’ Karl here. I’ll admit, the first time I really started looking into his life was when he called Adele “a little too fat,” and I didn’t care for him at all. I thought he was rude and self-important and just generally awful. But then I remembered that he’s a gazillion years old. He’s a crotchety old man without any kind of filter, and he’s definitely at that point where the things he says are so absurd that he’s gone from being offensive to being hilarious.

Also, he reminds me of my uncle who only leaves his house to go to Walmart, except on Thanksgiving and Christmas when he comes over to my grandma’s house and sits in the corner talking about how he’s not going to carve the damn turkey this year. He also has a touch of my other grandma, who has been crazy for years and used to take me out for ice cream and then call me “Thunder Thighs.” When I was 10. Maybe Karl could be a distant relative!

But about Karl’s actual quote: I’m sorry, I can’t help but laugh. “Her sister struggles.” This man is so priceless.

  • I admire Karl Lagerfeld’s work as he not only heads Chanel but his own lines which are ridiculously successful. This story was featured in my London paper this morning and I was pissed, because whatever he said, about whomever, printing it and publicizing it will give it attention, and it’s basically bullying Pippa. If this had not been printed nobody would be paying any attention to it, and while I love gossip pages, this is not gossip, this is mean. She can’t help her face, whereas if it has been her behaviour or attitude – yes, that we can rip to shreds.

  • karl lagerfeld? an old man with grody yellow teeth and a raggedy-ass weave, is going to say something about Pippa Middleton?!?!? (who is gorgeous, by the way.) seriously? he’s a douche.

  • I’m sorry, but let’s be serious. He’s 100% right about her face. No one would be trying to make her out to be some great beauty if her sister wasn’t marrying Prince William

    • what do you mean, he’s right? she’s cute. maybe she’s not drop dead gorgeous, but he’s got a lot of nerve. why even say that?

      • I meant what I said. He is right. His profession deals with fashion and real beauty for decades. You can’t really criticize his looks because he doesn’t present himself for his looks. The fact of the matter is that he has talent and is one of the prominent designers that sets the bars for what people wear and base their looks off of.

        Pippa has literally fame-whored herself as if she was a British Kardashian, and herr little French PR faux-pas caused her to fade into obscurity until Lagarfeld mentioned her name. Her face looks haggard despite her relatively young age. Bottom-line, her face is not cute and when is the last time you’ve seen an old person that looked cute. No one will look cute old, and he’s a legend stating facts when he’s seen beauties of all fashion ages.

  • Eh, glad someone said it. I don’t get the hype around Pippa Middleton. She’s really really plain looking and her arse isn’t that spectacular, she just was on the right place at the right time. I don’t like to hate on women but I’m sick of seeing the faces and names of these two plastered all over the media like they’re the second coming, when actually they are two rich girls who moved in the elitist British circles. I don’t care and I wish they two would go away, especially Pippa.

  • Karl Lagerfeld’s look defines “unfortunate”. For him to appear in public looking like that should be cause for non-stop ridicule. For him to bloviate about fashion as he toddles around looking like a nightmarish queen is laughable.

  • Adele IS a little too fat and Pippa IS NOT pretty.
    Let’s face it, he’s just telling the truth. I’m sure lots of people agree but he dared to say it out loud.

  • finally! someone who can look past this odd pippa hype. Pippa’s NOT gorgeous. Plain Jane at best.

  • ok, so not gorgeous. but her body rocks. i guess my point is, she’s not putting herself out there on purpose and opening herself up to criticism by virtue of her job. her sister married a prince – that’s why we even know who she is. i think it’s sad that he felt the need to say anything at all about her. i still think he’s an old fool who should keep his unasked for opinions to himself.
