Believe it or not the overly critical Karl Lagerfeld was once fat. And if you don't believe us, there's proof.
The clip (above) features a heavyset Unkle K during a skit for the 1997 VH1 Fashion Awards.
He's even holding that fan he used to hit employees! Ha!

Long before he became the sunglass wearing creative director at Chanel, a 20-something year old Karl Lagerfeld competed in the 1955 International Wool Secretariat’s design competition.

Check out young Karl in the clip (above)!
