Controversial Karl Lagerfeld Quote Alert!
If Karl was King, benefit receivers would be in a bit of trouble…
Karl Lagerfeld has spoken to Stylist magazine about what the world would be like if he were King – and he’s slapped a dress code on those receiving benefits. WTF?!
"I would make myself head of the style police and we would fight fiercely against sloppiness," said the Chanel guru. "Being well turned-out is not a question of means. Benefits for families would be replaced by maintenance bonuses for those who make an effort."
Karl – who has previously called out Adele for being “a little bit fat” – also said, “Studying the dictionary should be compulsory. One page per day, like my mother made me do when I was little, with parents testing children in the evening.
"I would make everybody learn two or three languages. Being trilingual is essential, it opens doors for you, opens your mind and helps you to avoid Alzheimer's disease."
So there you have it. The world according to Karl. Which, coincidentally, is the title of a book filled with the 81-year-old’s quotes.
