Karl Lagerfeld has suggested that Pippa Middleton should lessen her public appearances beside her royal sister Kate Middleton because he doesn't like her face.
Then again, Lagerfeld could stick to fashion instead of passing offensive marks about women. Perhaps it's his presumed eye for beauty that makes him so successful at fashion design and art to begin with? Either way, his comments about Middleton have been considered extremely offensive; Lagerfeld is lucky that clothes have far less feelings than his female victims.
Lagerfeld first came under fire when he suggested earlier on this summer that Adele was fat. His latest victim however, is of a more royal persuasion. While complementing Kate Middleton, Lagerfeld added that her sister Pippa should be less proud.
"Kate Middleton has a nice silhouette and she is the right girl for that boy," Lagerfeld told The Sun referring to Prince William. "I like that kind of woman, I like romantic beauties."
As for Pippa Middleton, the fashion guru was much less kind, insulting her with a sharp comment.
"On the other hand, her sister struggles. I don't like the sister's face. She should only show her back," Lagerfeld added.
Perhaps then, Lagerfeld can offer Pippa a few tips on how to handle her less likeable face, since many users seemed to think he'd be an expert on covering his own unpleasantness.
"Has he checked his image in the mirror lately? He's rather ugly himself," Shana wrote on the Mail Online blog.
"Silly old buffer looks like a corpse!" Milton Keynes added.
Lagerfeld is constantly photographed wearing sunglasses, which may be his own personal trick. Maybe he could lend Pippa a pair, although others were quite certain that she needed them much less than he did.
