Karl Lagerfeld Embraces Curves

Models.com released another exclusive preview of V Magazine's Size Issue. This time its none other than the highly anticipated editorial by Karl Lagerfeld, creative director/head designer of CHANEL. 
I will be the first to admit I was shocked when I heard the news Uncle Karl would be photographing a plus model for V. You know, considering he dislikes fat people and all. Yet, this spread is absolutely divine. I am happy he used a plus size woman (burlesque dancer Miss Dirty Martini) and captured her in true Chanel fashion - provocative, edgy, and romantic.

  8. ...he doesn't like fat people? He used to be fat.
    I'm guessing he forgot what he used to look like.

    -sorry to comment on an old post, but after seeing that entry and then googling things he's been quoted as saying; I had to.
