We see that Karl Lagerfeld has once again sparked controversy with remarks towards Pippa Middleton. He was quoted as saying “she should only show her back” with reference of course to the photos that were beamed across the world when she was a bridesmaid at her sisters wedding to Prince William.
This isn’t the first time he has sparked controversy when he referred to Adele, one of our favourite singers and a role model for curvy women everywhere, as being a little too fat but with a beautiful face and a divine voice. We believe comments like this just make it harder to remove weight discrimination from the fashion industry and in showbiz in general. There is far too much pressure around these days for everyone to look a certain way regardless of talent.
We here in the Curvety office believe he is saying these things as a bit of a publicity stunt, after all you know what they say “ there is no such thing as bad publicity”. Maybe he should think a little more carefully in future about the effect his comments may have on young people.
