Karl Lagerfeld, designer of Chanel, quite famously said in October:
“No one wants to see curvy women. You’ve got fat mothers with their bags of chips sitting in front of the television and saying that thin models are ugly.”
Nevertheless, Lagerfeld recently shot a big girl for V magazine’s size issue, which hits newstands January 14. The shoot which is titled CoCo A Go-Go was entirely shot by Lagerfeld and features burlesque dancer Miss Dirty Martini. He once called the magazine Brigitte’s decision to feature real models “absurd”. Maybe with V magazine’s decision to feature fat models Karl Lagerfeld has come to think fat is cool again.
