Designer Karl Lagerfeld Calls Adele "Too Fat" – How Should She Respond, If At All?
Thu, 09 Feb 2012 17:24:40
Fit is key in fashion, in more ways than one. Earlier this week, famed and respected Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld caused a stir and a controversy because he said that he loves Adele's "divine" voice but said she is a little "too fat." Ouch. Not nice, Karl. But then again, he is a fashion designer who values the sample size, which most women aren't.
While serving as the guest editor of Metro in Paris, he said, "She is a little too fat, but she has a beautiful face and a divine voice." Ouch, again.
That's a really unflattering statement and a backhanded compliment if there ever was one. We bring this up to you, dear reader, to discuss. Sound off to our questions below in the comments field.
Do you think that such a comment should cause women of all sizes to protest and/or boycott his designs? If you were Adele, how would you respond?
