London (ANI): English model Katie Green has criticised designer Karl Lagerfeld after he said “no one wants to see curvy women on the ramp." The 22-year-old beauty, who has modelled for lingerie firms Ultimo and Wonderbra, insists that this thinking can lead to young girls getting eating disorders. "I'm in absolute shock at Karl Lagerfeld's comments. The guy is seriously deluded and irresponsible. He makes me sick," the Sun quoted her as saying.
"If he thinks the fashion industry is all about 'dreams and illusions' then he should go to an eating disorder ward at any hospital. That will show him how this fantasy fashion world he has helped build makes women seriously ill and fighting for their lives. He says no one wants to see real women - but I know lots of real men and I can tell you that they prefer the curves!" she added.
Green"s comments came after Lagerfeld attacked popular German magazine Brigitte that recently banned professional skinny models. She has appreciated Brigitte's decision. "When I saw that story about Germany's largest women's magazine using real girls in their publication and I thought bingo finally one person has the message," she said.
