The chancellor of style said it.
Last week, German fashion magazine Brigitte announced plans to ban professional models from its pages. The move was taken in an attempt to address the size zero debate and has received a mixed response.
Karl Lagerfeld added his two cents to the debate.
Speaking to German online magazine Focus, Karl commented controversially:
“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.” He went on to explain that the world of fashion was about “dreams and illusions”.
