Unkle Karl doth protest too much!
Karl Lagerfeld is recanting the statement he made to Marie Claire Spain.
You know, the one about France's president Francois Hollande is an "idiot"?
The designer insists he said no such thing, explaining:
"Of course I never said that! I don't speak Spanish, I speak a little of Italian but no Spanish. I saw him [Hollande] on TV and I found him very fun, spiritual and intelligent. The luxury business is an industry that makes a lot of money and should not be considered like something we should be ashamed of."
Hmm… so did he not give the interview at all, since he’s using the language barrier as an excuse?
We find it hard to believe that Marie Claire would make something like that up!
But, then again, we find it harder to believe the man who called Pippa Middleton a butterface would ever take anything back!
What do U think???
