Karl Lagerfeld Slams Pippa Middleton, Encourages Her To Walk Backwards

Eminently quotable though he may be, sometimes Karl Lagerfeld says things that make us wish he would keep his mouth shut once in a while. This is one of those times.

UK tabloid The Sun reports that the designer has expressed a distate for the face of Pippa Middleton, sister of Duchess Kate, the best-dressed lady in all the land.

According to the Kaiser:

“Kate Middleton has a nice silhouette and she is the right girl for [Prince William]. I like that kind of woman, I like romantic beauties. On the other hand, her sister struggles. I don’t like the sister’s face. She should only show her back.”

So presumably we should expect to see Pippa walking backwards at all times from now on?

On the other hand, he seems to enjoy both the front and back of Victoria Beckham:

“She is great. I like her a lot. I have known her for many years…And that body, after four children. There are not so many who have a body like that. She is very disciplined. We have the same eating habits. We did a full fashion shoot with her styled as Coco Chanel in less than three hours.”

Be that as it may, however, on behalf of women everywhere we’d like to take this opportunity to implore Karl to stick to comments about his “famous beauty” of a cat, Choupette Lagerfeld. After all, we imagine there would be far fewer opportunities for him to put his foot in his mouth if the only bodies he commented on were of the feline species, n’est-ce pas?
