Karl Lagerfeld: 'Adele is a little too fat'
Feb 7, 2012, 12:00 GMT
Karl Lagerfeld has called Adele 'a little too fat'.
The Chanel designer is a huge fan of the 'Someone Like You' hitmaker's voice and thinks she has a beautiful face but claimed she is too overweight at the moment.
Speaking to French newspaper Metro, he said: 'I prefer Adele and Florence Welch. The thing at the moment is Adele. She is a little too fat, but she has a beautiful face and a divine voice.'
While Karl doesn't rate newcomer Lana Del Rey's voice as he does Adele's he revealed he finds her more aesthetically pleasing.
He said: 'Lana Del Rey is not bad at all. She looks very much like a modern-time singer. In her photos she is beautiful. Is she a construct with all her implants? She's not alone with implants.'
This isn't the first time Karl - who famously dropped 92 pounds in 13 months 10 years ago - has hit out at fuller figures.
Claiming that fashion is about 'dreams and illusions', he has previously said: 'No one wants to see curvy women.
'You've got fat mothers with their bags of chips sitting in front of the television and saying that thin models are ugly.'
