Karl Lagerfeld Wants You To Know What He Really Meant To Say About Pippa

“I didn’t mean that! I only meant I don’t think her makeup is right; she has a roundish face and round eyes and she should pick another makeup for the eyes.”

Karl Lagerfeld attempts to clarify his comments regarding Pippa Middleton after they were apparently misconstrued. The Kaiser professed not long ago that Pippa “should only show her back,” but he insists that isn’t really what he meant! For the record, he just loves Duchess Kate, but that doesn’t mean she’s his pick of the bunch…

“I think Carole [Middleton, Kate and Pippa’s mother] is very sexy. I think the mother is sexier than the daughters. There is something full of life about her. For a woman who must be 50 or so I think she’s great. Full of energy.”

And furthermore, he divulged to Grazia the biggest mystery of all, in what may just be the most revealing Karl quote ever: why does he always, without fail, wear those leather fingerless gloves? Well, because they allow him easy access to — brace yourself — his diamond vault, where the key to enter is nothing other than his own unique fingerprint. I couldn’t dream of a better reason to put up with having sweaty palms all the time. [Grazia Daily]
