in other news, what happened to beth ditto’s eyebrows?

karl-lagerfeld-and-beth-ditto Oh, Beth Ditto. Why?

I don’t understand why women who work for fat acceptance will go to fashion shows and hang out with people who say they will never, for any amount of money, design for women bigger than a size 10. Even though the average American woman is a size 14. It’s like black people going to Klan rallies because they think the burning crosses are pretty. Even though there is a serious lack of above-average sized fashions, and even though the few designers who make fashions for fat women say it’s practically a license to print money, most designers would rather lose business than be seen as something fat people — slovenly pigs who would dribble gravy all over the clothes and sweat them up! — would wear.

Best Week Ever joked about this photo that Lagerfeld probably threw away his gloves after allowing them to touch a fat person, and it’s probably not that exaggerated. Much the same way that the people who are the biggest assholes about smoking are ex-smokers; fat people know that the worst finger-wagging and hatred for our disgustingly fat bodies comes from ex-fatties like Lagerfeld. The man who used to hide his double chin with a fan in public and claims anorexic fashion models who collapse under the weight of clothing just have “skinny bones”.

    I agree with you. I hate Karl Largerfiel and it’s a shame to be a french like him. But Paul Gautier is a proud 😀

    Oh I COMPLETELY disagree! As much as I despise Ms. Ditto for her self-proclaimed “punk” persona, using it as an excuse to skip basic hygiene and not wear deodorant (and subsequently smell even worse), I do support her decision to pay homage to one of the greatest couturiers in history. Karl Lagerfeld is a genius! I’m just curious as to why he would want to align himself with Ms. Ditto – possibly a PR stunt. Let’s face facts: a size 14 is NOT HEALTHY!!!!! The average dress size of a French woman is 40, or in the US a size 10, with most woman including myself, being much smaller – I’m 5’8″ and wear a size 6 and I have never starved myself in my life! Small bones are indeed a real phenomenon!!!!!

    Wrong. You can be a size 14 and be perfectly healthy. You can also be a size 6 (and not have starved yourself to get there) and have a host of health problems. Weight is not the sole indicator of good or bad health.

    “Small bones” are a Real Thing. “Skinny bones” is a bullshit excuse invented by the fashion industry to cover the fact that their models are so malnourished that they can’t even bear the weight of their clothes. Which makes them kind of useless as fashion models. Even if the “average” French woman were a size 0, couturiers of any nationality should be designing for a more global market.

    Take your ignorant fat-bashing back to the comments of the Daily Fail, dearie. It’s not welcome on my blog.
