Unkle Karl Disapproves Of MObama's Bangs! Says She Looks Like A News Anchor!

Oh, no he did NOT!

Chronic sufferer of foot-in-mouth syndrome Karl Lagerfeld has insulted everything from Pippa Middleton’s face to Adele’s bod, but his latest quip may just take the proverbial cake.

During an interview with France’s Canal Plus, Unkle Karl confessed to host Yann Barthes how he feels about Michelle Obama’s new bangs, saying:

"I don't understand the change of hair … Frankly, the fringe was a bad idea. It's not good."

He then added that she looked like "une speakerine de LCI," which in English means that she looks like a news anchor.

Le gasp!

Although, news anchors are pretty good-looking, so we’re not sure if that’s an insult or not. Maybe it is in France.

Anyway! We know exactly how FLOTUS would respond to this–with an epic eye-roll! Ha!

    Have you seen Uncle Karl lately. He is just jealous that she looks good with bangs and he doesn't.

    Hmm. I think he's got a point.

    Karl is a walking freak show, only in an industry as vacuous as fashion would he have any legitimacy especially when critiquing the looks of others.

    I disagree with old Karl, the European jet setting buttoned up fashion maven, but he can state his opinions. Michelle looks fresh and much younger with the new, shiny 'do.'

    It is definitely an insult knowing that LCI is like crappy news channel !!

    he's right.

    Like anyone cares what some crusty old douchebag thinks? Anyone taking fashion advice from an old codger is mental. YOUTH is what drives that biz, he was past his prime 40 years ago

    Monsier Lagerfeld is following the First Lady, like everyone else! A sign of her international and multi-cultural haute up (Karl Lagerfeld) and down (Kohl's hopping) influence on media and popular culture, I see her career lasting well beyond her First Lady's position given that the President and First Children allow supportive transitions and I don't see why not. I like the fashion risks she take, I agree it isn't as sophisticated but she looks young and open to a range of styles which can also impact our perception that she perhaps is much younger and open than just elegant and sophisticated, good move on the younger generation's psychology.

    Um, has he looked in a mirror lately? Not quite the one to be making personal comments.

    This is coming from someone who looks like a Muppet.

    Karl Lagerfeld has no business criticizing anyone's hair. He has had the same ridiculous hairstyle for DECADES and is stuck in a time warp. Anyone who wears their hair in a ponytail while sporting sunglasses 24/7 for 30 years needs to STFU.

    As if that shithead knows anything. Christ the guy is so over rated it isn't even funny.

    Re: Dubguy – He's the designer for Chanel, I think he knows what he's talking about. Would'nt you like to own an original Chanel if you can afford one?

    Ugh…utter sexism…when women are NOT seen just as objects BUT people who have brains, getting their haircut will not be such a big deal….SUCH a double standard….ALL these ugly men in the world and they want to pick on her? Please.



  15. 15

    I mistook her for one of the daughters — she looks amazing!

    Re: yes

    Michelle Obama is a sexist herself against women. This is a women who said when her husband was nominated that she was finally proud of her country for looking at an African-American as President. One little problem with that, Carol Mosley Braun, the former Senator of Illinois who was also African-American, did run for President. So, what Carol wasn't good enough? Michelle wasn't proud then? She's a monster and she looks ridiculous with that haircut.

    I think she looks fine with or without bangs, personally I have to wear them, the shapre of my face does not lend itself to no bangs, etc.

    I would love to own a Chanel if I could afford it, but since I am retired, no idea where I would wear it. For $2000 I can and will in May take a nice 11 day vacation in Mexico.

    Not fond of her - but like her bangs.

    One of the things that i LIKE about Michelle is that 'haute couture' doesn't seem that important to her. She dresses nicely, and then focuses more on things that truly matter.
