(Newser) – Karl Lagerfeld is not a fan of Brigitte magazine’s recent decision to stop using models in its pages. The 71-year-old designer tells Focus magazine the decision is “absurd” and “no one wants to see round women,” the Guardian reports. The women who complain about models, Lagerfeld says, “are fat mummies sitting with their bags of crisps in front of the television, saying that thin models are ugly.”
