Karl Lagerfeld Trashes Newsweek

Designer Karl Lagerfeld slammed Newsweek after it dared to criticize him—claiming he had “never heard of” Pulitzer Prize-winning fashion reporter Robin Givhan. In the February 6 issue, Givhan wrote that Lagerfeld is “overrated,” and acknowledged that “such a statement is heresy in the fashion world.” Such heresy, in fact, that it cost Givhan a front-row seat at Chanel during Fashion Week. And it appears that Lagerfeld isn’t through with his feud yet. At a press conference on Friday, Lagerfeld lashed out at Newsweek editor Tina Brown, saying she is “going down” with a “shitty little paper.”
