Karl Lagerfeld Calls Michelle Obama’s Fringe a ‘Bad Idea’

The world is busy raving about first lady Michelle Obama's fringe but Chanel's creative director Karl Lagerfeld begs to differ. After taking digs at Pippa Middleton, Adele, Heidi Klum and Russian men, next in line is the first lady.

"I don't understand the change of hair ... Frankly, the fringe was a bad idea. It's not good," Huffington Post quoted the designer. Lagerfeld went on to say that Obama now looks like a news anchor.

The criticism comes as a surprise as Lagerfeld had once admitted that he adores Obama. He had even called the first lady's face "magical" while talking to Metro World News in 2012.

Lagerfeld might be one of the top designers in the industry but how does it matter if he likes the first lady's bangs or not? After all it got the President's seal of approval. Calling it one of the most important events of the inaugural ceremony weekend, the President seems to adore the new hairstyle.

"I love her bangs," the President told the media. "She looks good. She always looks good."

And it's not just husband Obama who loves her haircut. Vogue magazine must have been equally pleased with her style as the 49-year-old will most likely be seen fronting a second cover for the fashion bible. Washingtonian saw the magazine's crew lugging around cameras at the White House, Jan. 31. CBS news reporter and White House correspondent Mark Knoller too witnessed the magazine's crew at the President's home and tweeted, "Today at the WH. No public events on the president's schedule today, though Vogue is bringing camera gear into the WH this morning."

Lagerfeld had earlier taken digs at Adele calling her "too fat." The 79-year-old designer has called Heidi Klum as an insignificant part of the fashion world and even said that Pippa Middleton "should only show her back" as he doesn't like her face.
