Karl Disses Coco

Karl never ceases to amaze or completely entertain me with his antics. In a recent Vogue interview, he basically implies that Coco’s legacy isn’t as great as everyone thinks. He goes on to say:

“Coco did a lot but not as much as people think or as much she herself taught at the end of her career,” he says. “She survived them all – she could pretend things people like Madame Vionnet couldn’t because they were not around and they didn’t have the personality to say the things Chanel did.”

Soooo, basically he’s saying Coco took more credit than she was due because she outlived the only people who would say otherwise? Bahahah! It gets better. He continues his rant by exposing Coco’s two vital mistakes:

“The first was when she said ‘Not one man I have spoken to likes a woman in mini skirts’. I think no one dared to tell this 86-year-old lady that miniskirts are great and really sexy,” he says. “Number two was when she decided blue jeans were horrible. This was the fashion of the world at that partuclar moment – it was the Sixties. No one wanted to be told by an old lady that miniskirts and jeans weren’t chic. The result was that she lost her power and in the end no one cared about what she did.”

This is pure entertainment. He straight up called Coco an old bag! I commend Karl for having some serious balls. I don’t think anyone in their right mind would openly take a stab at the legend that is Coco Chanel. You get a gold star for the day, Karl!
