It hasn’t been a good year for fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld and women. In February, he dubbed singer Adele “fat” and is now suggesting Pippa Middleton only show her “back,” as her face does not meet his standards and she only has her behind going for her. Here are a few instances in which the style guy has tried to shoot famous women down.

Fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld is wrong about a lot of things, but he did a swell job packaging Geza Schoen, Wallpaper* magazine, and Gerhard Steidl’s new fragrance, Paper Passion, which is marketed as perfume “for booklovers.”

Data analyst extraordinaire Karl Lagerfeld, who said at a press conference this week that Newsweek is a dying, “sh-tty little paper,” needs to get his facts straight, according to the publication.

Fashion mogul Karl Lagerfeld, the brain behind Chanel, is well-known for extravagance – it’s what makes him and Chanel attractive to the globe’s biggest spenders. So for yesterday’s Chanel cruise line show, Lagerfeld did what any purveyor of luxury would do: he rented out the entirety of the Hotel Du Cap Eden Roc, one of the world’s most famous and expensive hotels.
Styleite points out that while regular fashion shows are usually on a runway, “cruise collections” happen in the off season, so they can often take place at more interesting locales. In the past, Lagerfeld has put on shows everywhere from St. Tropez to a Santa Monica airport hangar, but the famous hotel in Cap D’Antibes on the French Riviera takes it to a new level.
