In an interview to mark the launch of his Macys collection in New York earlier this week, Lagerfeld slated the royal wedding as consisting of a parade of bad proportions, ugly hats and short skirts on fat legs.
It's a bridal gown of very refined detail
, much more refined than the one Diana wore, he said. Alexander McQueen's dresses are always very elegant. It's very pretty and relatively classic with a little touch of the 1950s that recalls Marilyn Monroe
or Queen Elizabeth II's dress. The lace is pretty, especially the embroidered veil, and the tiara not too high. It's ravishing and the length of the train is perfect.
Lagerfeld told Style.com
that he felt observers were interested in the royal wedding because royalty is very trendy.
Now its in.... The old game coming back. People are excited by it. There is no political ideology for the moment, so they have to turn to something they can identify with.
He also said that sometimes he wished he would think before he speaks: Maybe I should think deeper and open my mouth not as quick
