Karl on the Queen’s Jubilee:
I think [Queen Elizabeth] looks very good in her recent photos even better than a few years ago - beautiful, a bit like Queen Mary. She looks a little bit like her grandmother - a more smiley version. In terms of what she wears, she’s come into herself a little bit more - whatever that is.
Karl on M.I.A. and her middle finger:
Nowadays people give the middle finger quite quickly - it’s not the best behavior. Everybody does that, what’s new about that? It’s just become a bad habit. People in magazines are 50% bimbo and 50% pregnant women.
Karl on women in Russia:
If I was a woman in Russia I would be a lesbian, as the men are very ugly.
Karl on sustainable fashion:
I don’t know what you consider as sustainable fashion. Do it, but don’t make a subject out of it. It’s a little bit boring.
Karl on Lana del Rey:
I prefer Adele and Florence Welch. But as a modern singer she is not bad.The thing at the moment is Adele. She is a little too fat, but she has a beautiful face and a divine voice. 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.
UPDATE: Lagerfeld has clarified his remarks on Adele’s weight.
Karl On dieting:
I found out that clothes are much better than scales and things like this. Clothes don’t lie. If you have only clothes in one size and nothing one millimeter bigger, the minute something hurts somewhere, you know it’s time
Karl On Sex:
“No, I’m not very much interested in that. But it’s not a question of time, people can make quickies you know”
Karl on racism in soccer:
It’s very difficult today, as you open your mouth and everything is printed somewhere. You cannot even make private jokes anymore. ( but he keeps on opening his mouth!).
