TUESDAY, Feb. 7, 2012— In a so-not cool move, designer Karl Lagerfeld shared some harsh words for Adele.
“The thing at the moment is Adele. She is a little too fat, but she has a beautiful face and a divine voice,” the designer and creative director for Chanel toldMetro.
Lagerfeld has had a history of voicing his disdain for overweight women. In 2009, the 78-year-old designer said that people would rather look at skinny models anyway. “These are fat [mothers] sitting with their bags of crisps in front of the television, saying that thin models are ugly," Lagerfeld toldFocusmagazine (via ).
And just in case he wasn’t being clear enough, Lagerfeld added, “No one wants to see round women.”
Given her strong nature, Adele likely won’t think much about his harsh, unasked-for criticism.
"I've seen people where it rules their lives, who want to be thinner or have bigger boobs, and how it wears them down," she told . "And I don't want that in my life. I have insecurities, of course, but I don't hang out with anyone who points them out to me."
And, at the very least, she can turn to Twitter, which is a buzz with support for the singer and disgust for the designer.
“Karl Lagerfeld thinking Adele is fat [is] yet another example why so many women are prone to body issues and think models are average sized,” Finn Miles (@finolamiles) Tweeted.
“Karl Lagerfeld says Adele is fat,” dermatologist Jessica Wu, MD, . “He's either jealous of her tremendous talent or just plain mean--or both.”
Or, as Savina Billups (@Savanna_Black) simply put it, Lagerfeld’s comments are, in a word, “Shameful!”
