Karl Lagerfeld, a fashion royalty, believes that Kate Middleton’s sister, Pippa is ugly. He did not use this particular word to describe her, but he came pretty close. Read more to find out what he told UK’s “The Sun” about the aesthetic aspects of the Middleton sisters.
What we have already learned about Karl Lagerfeld is that he doesn’t pamper anyone when it comes to aesthetics. He is telling it as it is. In February of this year he said that singer Adele was “a little too fat” and in 2009 he called supermodel Heidi Klum “more bling bling” than high fashion. Lagerfeld explained that while in the United States, Klum is a beauty icon due to her Victoria’s Secret history, in Europe nobody considers her a model. “In Germany she is very current, but as a mannequin rather than a model”, adding that he never used her in his fashion shows.
This being said, it’s no wonder Pippa Middleton, the still-unmarried sister of Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge and wife of Prince William, is far from having the face of a model Lagerfeld would approve. While Kate was described by the fashion designer as a “romantic beauty” with a “nice silhouette”, Pippa was slammed.
Pippa “struggles. I don’t like the sister’s face. She should only show her back”, he told the British publication The Sun.
You may now wonder whom has the high criticism of Lagerfeld not touched. His circle of close friends includes actresses-turned-fashion designers Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen, supermodel Claudia Schiffer and singer-turned-fashion designer Victoria Beckham.
