Karl Lagerfeld & Beth Ditto

Karl Lagerfeld has put his foot in his mouth once again with one of his latest mind boggling revelations. Get this, according to Karl, “Anyone who doesn’t prefer to look at skinny models is just a fat mummy.”

Yep you heard right. I mean I’ve heard Count Karl say some pretty outlandish things but this takes the biscuit. Karl was apparently responding to German magazine Brigitte’s announcement to use only “ordinary, realistic” models in the future. Karl went on to say the idea was absurd, and driven by overweight women who can’t face up to their weight issues. “These are fat mummies sitting with their bags of crisps in front of the television, saying that thin models are ugly,” Karl said in an interview with Focus magazine, adding “no one wants to see round women.”

Oh yeah Karl? Tell that to Beth Ditto, I thought the pair of you were buddies? It wasn’t so long ago that you were a bit weighty yourself…

At London Fashion Week designer Mark Fast caused quite a stir on the catwalk by using size 12 models in his spring/summer show, his stylist was so distraught she apparently walked out. Karl, a word of advice, why not take a leaf out of Mark’s book?

Anyone fancy a packet of crisps?
