Maybe it's just not fashionable to be apologetic? Outspoken designer Karl Lagerfeld, who followed his infamous Adele diss last year for being "a little too fat" with a harsh Pippa Middleton putdown ("I don't like [her] face. She should only show her back," he reportedly opined), is hardly repentant about his cruel declarations.
In promo clips for CNN's Fashion: Backstage Pass, the notoriously opinionated and eccentric designer appears unapologetic about his insults. When host Alina Cho asks him, "You did not like the face of Pippa Middleton?" He replies, "No, I think her sister looks better," referring to older sis Kate.
As for his fat-shaming of Adele, the 79-year-old Lagerfeld offers a limp clarification: "I never said that she was fat, I said that she was a little roundish. A little roundish is not fat. But for such a beautiful girl, after that she lost eight kilo [17.6 pounds], so I think the message was not that bad," he tells Cho.
The designer also opens up about his extreme love for his cat Choupette. “You know, there is no marriage yet for human beings and animals,” he tells Cho. “I never thought that I would fall in love like this with a cat.”
