Seems like John Galliano is not the only one to have crazy outbursts. Known for getting into hot water for saying the wrong thing, here are some of Karl Lagerfeld’s most controversial statements:
On Russian dating: “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 Adele: “The thing at the moment is Adele. She is a little too fat, but she has a beautiful face and a divine voice.”
On raising children: “You’re also lucky because they are very beautiful. It would have been difficult to have an ugly daughter.”
On curvy women: “No one wants to see curvy women. You’ve got fat mothers with their bags of chips sitting in front of the television and saying that thin models are ugly.”
On Japanese People: “It’s changed a lot but it’s changed for the better I think. I noticed that people became bigger than before because now they eat more cake and sweets and things like this that they didn’t do in the past. There’s a real change in the look of the Japanese people. Normally, before, they were all tiny. It’s the kind of beauty you get from junk food.”
On Michelle 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.”
