Karl Lagerfeld Opens Up About Kate Middleton's Mom

Known for offering brazen opinions, Karl Lagerfeld has dished his opinion on Kate Middleton's mother Carole in a recent interview.

Following his comments on Pippa Middleton during her sister Kate's wedding, the famed designer added his critique of Mrs. Middleton.

Carole Middleton is often in media reports, for she is the mother of the Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince William's mother-in-law.

"There is something full of life about her. For a woman who must be 50 or so I think she's great. Full of energy," said Lagerfeld to Grazia magazine.

Lagerfeld's opinion of the famous Middleton mother was much friendlier than his take on her daughter Pippa, who served as the only bridesmaid during Will and Kate's royal wedding last year.

"Kate Middleton has a nice silhouette and she is the right girl for that boy," Lagerfeld started of the royal couple earlier this year, according to The Sun.

As for Pippa Middleton, 28, the fashion guru was far less kind.

"On the other hand, her sister struggles. I don't like the sister's face. She should only show her back," the designer added.

Lagerfeld later apologized for his sharp comment, saying, "I didn't mean that," according to Vogue U.K.

"I only meant that I don't think her make-up is right; she has a roundish face and round eyes and she should pick another make-up for the eyes."

Lagerfeld has also found himself in hot water for his comments about Adele in the past, saying the singer was "a little too fat."

"I prefer Adele and Florence Welch," the designer told Metro Paris in February. "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 divine voice."

He later offered his apologies.

"I'd like to say to Adele that I am your biggest admirer," Lagerfeld told Metro New York. "Sometimes when you take a sentence out of the article it changes the meaning of the thought. Adele is my favorite singer and I am a great admirer of her."
