Grandpa's Gone Crazy....

Meet Karl Lagerfeld.

Karl Lagerfeld Receives 'Menschen In Europa' Award

No... this is not a villan from a Chuck Norris action movie nor is it a biker hippi all grown up showing his respect at a green peace convention. This is the creative director of Chanel.

This man is not only a fashion genious... BUT to put it quite idiot.

He should start a new handbag line for Chanel called "Douche." Instead of the classic and beautiful double "C" it could have black and white stitching of "DB" across the entire purse.

Why do I feel such anger at this man that would make any hanger melt with his expensive and gorgeus creations? Well.. seems as though Karl thinks that a twig is the perfect body type that all women should strive to mimic. Lagerfeld said in response to the German magazine Brigitte's decision to use real women instead of size zero models in their pages starting next year as quote:

"No one wants to see curvy women. You've got fat mothers with their bags of chips sitting in front of the television saying thin models are ugly. Fashion is about dreams and illusions."

My response to this statement:

Finger snap... head turn... finger snap... shift of the hip....oh no he di'nt!

Where do I begin? This 71 year old man has the audacity to knock curvy women... healthy women like Kate Winslet and Beyonce? Boyfriend, I am not a mother... but I may sit in front of the television and wince when I see bones strutting on the runways... but I am not eating chips.. cookie dough is my snack of choice get it right grandpa. FYI it tastes much better than your prune juice. And fashion is not about dreams and illusions. Fashion is a statement about one's self... putting forth your individuality and expressing it in a way where it makes you feel amazing.
