>> In his candor, Karl Lagerfeld is always entertaining. The Cut caught up with Karl last Friday and asked him which Democratic candidate he favored, Barack Obama or Hilary Clinton. He played the diplomatic card at first:
I'm not American, I don't interfere in American politics. There's nothing worse than strangers [who] have an opinion about something that does not concern them.
But when prodded about how he thinks they should dress, the real Karl started to come out:
But you know women in politics have a big problem. If they are too chic, they don't look serious, so it's very, very difficult.
And the best part, at the end, when he leaned forward and lowered his voice:
I think her pants are poorly cut.
And then Karl leaned back, a satisfied smile on his face.
