Remember when Karl Lagerfeld mentioned that Adele was “a little too fat” in Paris Metro? He subsequently issued a statement saying the quote had been taken out of context and that he’s actually Adele’s “biggest admirer.” Just in case she was still pissed, though, he’s reportedly attempted to make further amends by sending her some Chanel bags.
The report comes from UK tab The Sun, so, you know grain (or shaker) of salt, but here’s what they say:
“[Karl] told his team to send Adele the best the fashion house have to offer after hearing she collected bags.
“He said he really wanted to make it up to her so they could maybe work together in the future.
“He could see her fronting a campaign for Chanel Mademoiselle bags when the contract with Blake Lively ends.
Interesting. While she’s not the first person we’d expect to replace Blake Lively, we could kind of see it. Guess it all depends on how forgiving Adele is, or how easily she’s swayed by expensive accessories–though, we doubt the six-time Grammy winner, who currently resides in a 10-bedroom mansion, is exactly desperate.
What do you think? Does Chanel heal all wounds even when it came from someone who called you fat?
