Karl Lagerfeld Is Very Sorry He Called Adele Fat

Illustration for article titled Karl Lagerfeld Is Very Sorry He Called Adele Fat

Internationally recognized weight-management expert/robot Karl Lagerfeld is walking back his comments to Metro that singer Adele is "a little too fat." The Chanel designer, who guest-edited an edition of the free daily paper (how's that for a high/low collaboration?) was quoted as saying:

The thing at the moment is Adele. She is a little too fat, but she has a beautiful face and a divine voice.


He now says:

I'd like to say to Adele that I am your biggest admirer. Sometimes when you take a sentence out of the article it changes the meaning of the thought. What I said was in relation to Lana Del Rey and the sentence has since been taken out of context from how it was originally published. I actually prefer Adele, she is my favorite singer and I am a great admirer of her. I lost over 30 kilos over 10 years ago and have kept it off. I know how it feels when the press is mean to you in regards to your appearance. Adele is a beautiful girl. She is the best. And I can't wait for her next CD.


Karl could probably make it up to her by making some clothes that would fit women of Adele's size. Or, you know, casting her in a Chanel campaign.

Why is there something wrong with that? She's an entertainer and looks are a component of her overall image. She is a pretty woman, but her weight adds 20 years to her looks. I was shocked when I found out how young she is. I do love her style and her voice and appreciate her uniqueness. I'm not sure who this guy is, but were his comments mean or inappropriate?
