I first saw him in a magazine. I thought his style was sharp and clean cut, he made a statement with what he wore. Then I saw him again, and again, still wearing the same sharp white shirt; buttoned up to the chin. A thin black tie, trademark black sunglasses. Black. White. Boring? This leads me to think, why should we take fashion advice from a man that wears the same thing continuously.
He has been known for slamming anybody that does not follow his beliefs that 'size-zero' is the way to be in the 'fashion industry'. He is one of the most controversial men in the fashion world. Titled 'The King' by adoring fans. To me a man that has been quoted saying; "people prefer to look at 'skinny models' and anybody who does not are 'fat mummies'", is not a man that should be bigged up and supported, for he just adds another cog in the machine of anorexia and bulimia in teens. I ask you, do you think that Lagerfeld is a great man, a man that all should look up to and hail down to, for he is the 'King'. Yes he is the creative director for the Fashion house Chanel, and Fendi, but for those reasons and those reasons alone, does that give him the voice to stand up and slate 'real' sized human beings? I would love to hear your thoughts.
What are your opinions on Karl Lagerfeld. Credit where credit's due, as far as fashion goes he has done some great things. But as a man, and the things he stands for, do you feel he should be respected? I would love to hear your thoughts.
