(Newser) – Karl Lagerfeld continued his transition from fashion designer to cranky old man with yet another hilariously mean observation: Pippa Middleton "struggles" with her looks, at least from the front. While praising Kate Middleton, Lagerfeld revealed that he does not enjoy looking at her sister, the Sun reports.

"Kate Middleton has a nice silhouette and she is the right girl for that boy. I like that kind of woman, I like romantic beauties," Lagerfeld said. "On the other hand, her sister struggles. I don't like the sister's face. She should only show her back." He does like Victoria Beckham, he notes, particularly because of "that body, after four children." "We have the same eating habits," he adds. (Read more Karl Lagerfeld stories.)
