Karlisms: Karl Lagerfeld on Michelle Obama, The Royals and Dominique Strauss-Kahn

Karl is never at a loss for words – here are some of his memorable recent quotes…

On Michelle Obama:

“I love Madame Obama, but not in terms of clothes…I like her face, the cleverness of her face. Her face is stronger than the clothes.”  (Washington Times)

On The Royal Wedding Outfits:

“But this was not a collection, this was the choices of this kind of woman for this kind of ceremony: the bad proportions, the ugly hats, the short skirts on fat legs.” (Grazia)

On Watching Television:

I like if I’m on TV; watching it is not my specialty. I prefer what I see in my mind-I get second-rate images delivered there for free. But I’m not too bad on TV. I commented on the English [royal] wedding for the [French] state channel. Normally they don’t have a huge audience, but with me doing it, we had nearly 50 percent and the others had only 30 and 20 percent. An event like that is fun to do because I can make jokes, and jokes of the lowest kind are not against my mentality. But I don’t want to do it all the time, hmm? (Grazia)

On Dominique Strauss-Kahn:

I love DSK. I love his wife. They are great people and when they came back to Paris I sent them flowers. But you know, for people in politics, it’s very embarrassing. On the left they had hoped he wouldn’t come back, because I think other people want his job. And on the other side…but even in America, Clinton survived his blow job. (Business Insider)

On Drugs:

I never smoke, I never take drugs, I’m never drunk, because I like only what I’m doing — work, reading, learning, sketching, taking photos. For the rest, my lack of passion or interest for this kind of thing makes it perhaps too easy for me to judge others. I’m surrounded by people who drink and take drugs. It doesn’t bother me at all, even when I know it’s bad for them. I’m not teaching them. (Fashionologie)
