Quotables: Karl Lagerfeld Has Something to Say About Michelle Obama’s Hair

“I adore Madame Obama. . . [but] frankly, this doesn’t suit her. The fringe was a bad idea, it’s not good.”

Karl Lagerfeld delivers some fightin’ words.

Look, you don’t say anything bad about Michelle Obama. You just don’t. It doesn’t matter what she does, you say something nice or you just shut your mouth. Like if someone released some footage of Michelle Obama drowning puppies, you’d still be like “well, she did look really classy doing it.” If she made a statement about how she wanted to stop focusing on promoting healthy choices for kids and start promoting PCP use for kids, then you’d say something like “that’s a strong woman who can go after what she believes in.” And then you’d do this solemn, appreciative nod that everyone always seems to do when talking about this lady. Do you know what I’m talking about?

For those of you living under a rock in a cave with no wifi, here’s Michelle’s new bangs:

Flawless, right? Even my dad has a crush on her, and he never talks about any famous lady crushes. He called me after Obama won the election and said things like “I’m so glad Obama won so I don’t have to hear that other asshole talk anymore” and “his wife sure is a pretty woman, huh?” Everyone loves Michelle Obama.

  • Who’s this clown to say anything about Michelle Obama? He’s basically like a Simpsons character, always wearing the same clothes. Shut up, Lagerfeld.

  • I agree with Karl. The bangs don’t look good on her. And mireee, you don’t have to be super special or important to say something about Michelle Obama. Opinions are for everyone.

    • My problem with his opinion is that this bloke hasn’t changed his outfit or hair since I can remember, so I don’t think he’s in a position to criticise people who take risks with their appearance when he is playing it safe. I didn’t mean that people can’t have an opinion on her, that would be dumb.

  • Not everyone loves Michelle Obama or her husband. That’s way too broad of an assumption. We don’t all have to agree or have the same political beliefs but I think it is fair to acknowledge that not everyone thinks the world of those two.

      • I’ll second that a 100% ! Karl lagerfeld loves to say whats ever on his mind and everyone knows that and that’s why they ask for his comments ! We all have the right to our opinions so that’s why I can say he always looks like shit !!! He is a wonderful designer I just wish he would get a stylist !!!!!

  • While i agree that the hair makes her look even more like chewbacca, i think Karl Lagerfeld shouldn’t be throwing shade considering he looks like a mummified pickled corpse.
