Pippa Middleton may have been nicknamed “Her Royal Hotness” by a bevy of Brits, but a certain fashion designer doesn’t agree with that assessment. In fact, he’s asserting that her back is way more attractive than her front. Ouch.
Karl Lagerfeld, who is a huge fan of Pippa’s sister Kate as well as Victoria Beckham–a.k.a. Posh Spice–apparently doesn’t see the merits of the younger Middleton sister’s beauty the way others do and isn’t shy about voicing his opinion. At the launch of his beauty boutique in London earlier this week, Lagerfeld praised Kate despite some critics’ notions that she has a boring wardrobe.
“She knows pretty well what to wear and what to do. She has a divine silhouette so she can wear anything. She has a sense of what’s right for the moment because you can not dress like a mad woman in those situations,” he said.
But about Pippa, he said, “On the other hand, her sister struggles. I don’t like the sister’s face. She should only show her back.”
Of course, beauty is subjective, so it shouldn’t be a big deal what one man thinks, even if he is an influential fashion designer. However, Pippa is beloved by millions who think she’s adorable, so Lagerfeld may find he has a backlash on his hands pretty soon.
