We can always count on Karl Lagerfeld to entertain us with his cheeky comments. The designer recently defended fur and now he's speaking out about high fashion. "It's great to see things you may not buy — because you don't have the money — but it is very ugly to think they shouldn't exist because you cannot buy them," he said. "I can be interested in a $20 million diamond I will never buy, without desiring the diamond. If you want only things you can afford, it's boring too." He has a point; we live for runway shows but can't afford most of the pieces. But do you think it's insensitive of him to make this statement in the midst of a recession?
