Karl “models have skinny bones” Lagerfeld rejects three models for being too skinny!
At the Chanel show during the recent Paris fashion week, Karl Lagerfeld claimed to have rejected three models for being too thin.
Karl Lagerfeld revealed in Paris he had taken a dramatic stand on the size zero issue by rejecting three models for his Chanel catwalk show yesterday (Friday) because they were 'too skinny'.
"It is the first time I have ever done something like this," he said.
“I have nothing against skinny girls. But these were terrible. They looked as if they had grown up in a Third World country with no food to eat.”
“I sent them back to the agency. I did not think they should be modeling,” said the designer.
He described the three models – who he did not identify – as being so thin as to look 'almost deformed' and agreed his stance may persuade other designers to follow suit.
Why can I not believe this?
See the following pictures from the show.
You can see just what you would expect in the form of a skinny/skeletal Lily Donaldson (left), but also a heavier Coco Rocha (middle) and a “fat” Gemma Ward! Strange.

See if you can guess what is going on. Hint: it has been rumored that Gemma Ward was dropped from Milan fashion week (roughly 2 weeks before her appearance in Paris) for being too fat; look at her above.
