Karl Karl Karl (Lagerfeld).  Once upon a time I found you to be eccentric and untouchable.  However, your biting remarks about Adele and Pippa Middleton in recent months have put a bad taste in my mouth.

Lagerfeld clarified his comments about Middleton to Grazia Magazine in Paris.  “I didn’t mean that!” Lagerfeld claimed (back in July, Lagerfeld said he “didn’t like” Middleton’s face and that the famous bridesmaid “should only show her back”).

“I only meant I don’t think her make-up is right,” Lagerfeld added.  “She has a roundish face and round eyes and she should pick another make-up for the eyes.” 

No, sir.  You were talking about her struggling “face” and requested that she walk backwards at all times.

Moving on…

Lagerfeld does love him some Kate Middleton (duh), but it’s the family matriarch that Chanel’s head honcho has his eyes on: “I think Carole is very sexy. I think the mother is sexier than the daughters,” Lagerfeld said of the future queen’s mom.  “There is somethign full of life about her. For a woman who must be 50 or so I think she’s great. Full of energy.”

Carole, you firecracker.
