Deep thoughts with Karl Lagerfeld!

February 7th, 2012 by Hotel Fashionland received 3 Comments »

As part of his guest-editorship at Metro World News in Paris today, Karl Lagerfeld gave his opinions on the day’s top stories.  Unsurprisingly, he said some awkward, offensive things that everyone will chortle at and then dismiss (“Oh, Karl!”).  Here’s a sampling of his interview as seen in THE METRO.

On Lana Del Rey:  I prefer Adele and Florence Welch. But as a modern singer she is not bad.The thing at the moment is Adele. She is a little too fat, but she has a beautiful face and a divine voice. Lana del Rey is not bad at all. She looks very much like a modern-time singer. In her photos she is beautiful. Is she a construct with all her implants?  She’s not alone with implants.

On the Obamas:  Yes he does [deserve to be re-elected], especially because of Mrs. Obama. I’m a big fan of Mrs. Obama – and her face, I think, is magical. He would not be there without her. Mrs. Obama is not a fashion statement, but she has other things to do. My favorite thing about Mrs Obama was when she was asked if her skirt was not too tight and she answered “Why you don’t like my big black ass?” I want [Barack] Obama to win because there is nothing better anyway, and especially because of her.

Side note….* In case you were wondering whether The First Lady ACTUALLY said this, the answer is no: “Mrs. Obama never made that statement,” says Kristina Schake, Michelle Obama’s director of communications.  Oh Karl! 

On Russian women:  If I was a woman in Russia I would be a lesbian, as the men are very ugly.  There are a few handsome ones, like Naomi Campbell’s boyfriend, but there you see the most beautiful women and the most horrible men.

On being politically correct:  Be politically correct, but don’t become a bore for that.  People should be sensitive in these matters, but not make so much noise.  Be politically correct, but do we have to know your opinion?
