Everyone’s favourite outspoken king of fashion, Karl Lagerfeld, has opened up about his views on two of Britain’s most fashionable and fabulous women – Kate Middleton and Victoria Beckham, and it was positivity all round.
Lagerfeld began by expressing his affection for Britain’s Royal Family, with a simple “I think they’re great”, before commenting on Kate’s wardrobe. “She has a divine silhouette so she can wear anything,” he said. “She has a sense of what’s right for the moment because you can not dress like a mad woman in those situations”. We couldn’t agree more.
The Chanel creative director, who has designed his own Olympics-themed collection specifically for the London 2012 Olympics, then moved on to address the subject of Spice Girl-turned-designer Victoria Beckham. “I’m a great admirer of hers. She’s a great example to tonnes of women; to have her four children, an incredible look and she’s clever,” he said. “I know her from her days as a Spice Girl. Her designs are not bad at all, they’re good. She’s totally unpretentious.” Lagerfeld even went so as far to call her son Romeo “perfection”, on account of his great behaviour on a recent shoot.
And lastly, he cleared up the most burning question of all – will we ever see his adorable kitten Choupette in any Chanel designs? Unfortunately not. “She hates anything attached to her body, not even her neck. Nothing! No, No. Her fur is so beautiful.” We were at least hoping for a kitty-sized tweed Chanel twin set. Perhaps that’s just one step too far, even for Mr Lagerfeld.
