If you don't know much about Karl, don't bother, I'll tell you everything you need to know. He's the head of Chanel, used to be very overweight, and now walks around shooting his mouth off about fat people every chance he gets.

When asked about size zero models, Lagerfeld as usual diverts the discussion to fat.
"There are nearly 30 per cent of young people who are too fat. So let's
take care of the zillions of the too fat before we talk about the percentage
that's left," Lagerfeld stated.
A spokesman for the support group Beating Eating Disorders said Lagerfeld's
comments on size zero models were "a very sad reflection" on
attitudes within the fashion industry.
Even more concerning, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen include Lagerfeld in their new book Influence, speaking of him like their fashion god. Here's a killer quote from the book that clearly shows why the Olsen's are so very enthralled by Uncle Karl;
Where we see cupcakes, Karl sees plastic.
AO: What do you do now to stay in shape?
KL: Nothing … I have a doctor who I made a book with that sold five
million copies all over the world. Every country bought one, I think,
in Russia and Italy and everywhere. But I don't get it — I don't know
what Japan is going to do with a European diet book … Since I started
my diet, which was like eight years ago, I haven't touched what I'm not
supposed to: sugar, cheese, nothing! I don't even look at it. It looks
to me like plastic.
Ahhhh…ok. Moving on to Karl's hilarious stunt back in 2007 when he used this model to mock the pressure on the fashion industry to stop the size zero requirements for models after a few dropped dead of pure and simple starvation;
THIS is the type of person who is creating the fashion rags we all know and love.
This is the attitude, the self righteousness, and ignorance we flock to each month as we page through our beloved Vogue.
I post this so you will think about the influence of these fashion moguls, and hopefully think harder about where you are spending your money
