Delightfully insane fashion person Karl Lagerfeld is not afraid to formulate patently ridiculous defenses of decadence. Fur is bad and models are too skinny? More like animals are dangerous and girls are too fat!
Complaining about fur is "childish," you see:
Hunters in the north "make a living having learnt nothing else than hunting", he said, "killing those beasts who would kill us if they could."
Animals should be killed "nicely" if at all possible, said Lagerfeld, who admitted to being queasy about eating meat.
He's a regular Peter Singer! What about those anorexic models, Karl?
Lagerfeld also said the issue of size zero models was insignificant compared to the "zillions" of fat people...
"In France there are, I think, less than one per cent of people who are too skinny.
"There are nearly 30 per cent of young people who are too fat. So let's take care of the zillions of the too fat before we talk about the percentage that's left."
