The Chanel designer is known for voicing his opinions — and this time he’s taking on the First Lady’s new ‘do, comparing her look to a news anchor! Should Karl stop talking and stick to fashion?
This First Lady is known for being a modern day Jackie Kennedy when it comes to fashion. She always impresses us with her groundbreaking styles, and we loved the new ‘do she sported on her 50th birthday on Jan. 17! While the bangs were a fresh update, apparently not everyone seems to be a fan of Michelle’s new look.
Michelle Obama, 50, debuted her sleek, straight bangs on her birthday and at the inaugural festivities. According to most of her fans, the new look is completely flattering on our First Lady. However, according to Chanel’s creative director, Karl Lagerfeld, 79, it is not her best look. We’re certainly used to Karl being a tough critic. He’s been a little harsh on some of our fashion favorites in the past, including Adele, 24, and Kate Middleton, 31, but going after Michelle really takes it to a whole new level!
In an interview with French TV network, Canal Plus, Lagerfeld states, “I do not understand the change in hairstyle.” Not only did he admit to his disapproval, but he went on to compare Madame Obama’s look to that of a news reporter! “‘Speakerine do LCI’ typically has this hairstyle,” he explains, in reference to another TV news network. In between his critiques and bizarre comparisons, he exclaimed more that once that he loves Michelle — but he also adds, “The fringe was not a good idea.”
After hearing Karl’s opinion, tons of critics were quick to share their conflicting views. The majority of responses agreed that the bangs not only make Michelle look way younger, but also exaggerate a softer and more approachable look. Who cares about critics when you have the approval of the U.S. President? If President Obama is taking time out of his inaugural festivities to compliment your bangs, then you must be doing something right!
Mr. President implied several times throughout the day that he was a fan of the new look. “I love my wife’s new bangs – she always looks good,” he said. When you have the approval of the president, you can probably let the rare snide remarks slide.
What do YOU think? Is Michelle’s new look youthful and flirty? Or do you agree with Karl? Leave a comment and let us know!
