As the head designer for Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld is one of the world’s most influential figures in fashion — but he’s definitely not a world leader when it comes to tact. Lagerfeld told the publication Metro that he is a fan of Adele, but isn’t a fan of her appearance.

“The thing at the moment is Adele,” says Lagerfeld. “She is a little too fat, but she has a beautiful face and a divine voice.”

Ironically, Lagerfeld himself was once overweight — he lost close to 100 pounds in 13 months back in 2001 by following a special diet. Wonder how he would have felt if some world-famous designer had called him “too fat.”
