Karl Lagerfeld calls Adele fat! Should she go on the KL diet?

The bleedin state of that


Splutter out tea time!  Karl Lagerfeld remarked the other day that he thinks beautiful Adele is “a little fat.”

The bloody nerve of him.  He’s always at this, calling people fat – and er in fact he was carrying around a little too much in the love handle department himself earlier in the century.  So he invented his own diet and lost 90 pounds.

The diet is completely nutritionally unsound and “unlike most modern approaches to dieting Lagerfeld views hunger and deprivation as a part of weight loss and Lagerfeld even goes so far as to state that dieting has to be a form of punishment”

So, a valuable insight into Karl’s psyche then.  Read more about the diet here.

Karl pre-diet

Ah the always classy Karl from the House of Chanel.  Maybe Adele should go on his diet eh?  Or NOT.

Reactions please!

    …correct me if i’m wrong, but wasn’t his diet effectively ”anorexia and diet coke”??

  • Aisling Aisling says:

    Emma – yes and if you wanted to change your body shape etc plastic surgery was the only way to do it!

    I think he’s a disgrace to the legacy of Chanel – if I was Coco I’d be turning in my grave. There have been some serious bad vibes going around about all things Chanel recently from complaints re their in house staff and policies to disappointment with their ranges and repetitive (make-up) collections. Which is a shame for such an iconic brand. What a gobs**te!

    bleedin cheek! sure she’s fab as she is :D

    ugh watched midday on tv3 today & that woman (you know the odious twit with the long stringy straw like hair) was agreeing with him she just yesterdsay spoke about women who dont breast feed being essentially bad mothers along with a lot of other nonsense in her time!!

    the simple fact is ‘fat’ is a comment on aestetics & ‘over weight’ refers to health issues owing to weight!!

    i think the question is what exactly has KL got going on in his life that the size of Adele’s a***..???

    I’m going to go out on a limb here and disagree with the fuss all this has caused in the meeeja. She IS fat, he’s right. I’m not sure why this has caused so much consternation amongst her fans.
    I’m fat, no sugar coating. I’m not sure what his motivation was in saying this in public but I honestly dont get the revulsion at calling a spade a spade. Maybe I’m ridiculously thick skinned wen it comes to personal comments though :)

    Am sure I’ve heard this morning on the 6 o’clock news on RTE1 (radio), but it did not quite register with me then.

    Ah Karl…. I love the clothes he makes, but the man… If I remember well, he said a few months ago that women complaining about models being too thin in magazines were ‘fatties’ stuffing themselves with crisps on their sofa or something to that effect. So what else can you expect of someone like him.

    And anyway, she’s a singer, not a model. So we shouldn’t have an opinion on what she looks like, rather on whether she is a good singer or not.

    Did she offend him to get such a nasty comment?

  • Naomi says:

    She is fat though. Obviously calling people things like that in the media isn’t right but neither is calling people thin. She’s not a healthy role model so there’s no point in defending her really.

    Also Karl Lagerfeld calls everyone fat, it’s not that surprising.

  • Lisa says:

    I think we need to stop holding “Uncle Karl” up as a spokesperson on things. He seems like a vile person and, I know fashion folk will probably disagree here, but he is completely unoriginal and undeserving of his high standing. I’d go so far as to say he’s vampiric in how he steals anything he thinks is cool and slaps it on the Chanel runway e.g. Amy Winehouse inspired models.

    And, goes without saying, I think Adele is looking great.

  • Lornieloo says:
