Karl Lagerfeld Doesn't Care for Michelle Obama's Bangs

Karl Lagerfeld has always been such a hater. The designer is famous for blasting British celebrities for their fashion choices or figures. Well, now, he’s taken it to American soil and dissed a national treasure: First Lady Michelle Obama.

Wearing his signature black get-up, sunglasses, and ponytail, the Chanel designer appeared on French television network Canal Plus’s “Le Petit Journal” when he was asked what he thought of FLOTUS.

While he claimed he loves “Madame Obama,” he claims she dresses like a news anchor and he’s really not feeling her new bangs.

“I do not understand the change in hairstyle,” he said. “Frankly this doesn't suit her. The fringe was not a good idea, it's not good.”

Needless to say, Lagerfeld is pretty lonely in this opinion. In fact, even the President himself heralded the new ‘do as the “most significant event” of the inauguration weekend, adding, “I love my wife’s new bangs – she always looks good.”

The 79-year-old German couturier is the king of dissing celebrities. He famously called Adele “too fat,” said Pippa Middleton “should only show her back” and described Heidi Klum as insignificant in the world of high fashion.

You know, because a man with a big, gray ponytail should talk.
