Karl Lagerfeld Sinks His Claws Into Heidi Klum and Seal

By: Betsy Waldman / June 12, 2009

Uh-oh; looks like there’s a fashion-world face-off in the works!

British newspaper the Sun reports that spindly designing legend Karl Lagerfeld has taken another pot-shot at model Heidi Klum—and this time thrown in a vicious personal dig at Klum’s husband Seal on top of it.

Lagerfeld—who opined in February that Klum is “too heavy” to be a catwalk model—now says that she’s a virtual nobody in the modeling business.

“I don’t know her. Claudia Schiffer doesn’t know her,” Lagerfeld hisses. “She was never in Paris, we don’t know her.”

Oh, snap! In your supposedly-too-heavy FACE, Heidi Klum!

But Lagerfeld didn’t stop there. The 75-year-old fashionista went on to make light of Seal’s skin condition. (The singer suffered as a child from discoid lupus erythematosus, which left scars on his skin.)

“I am no dermatologist but I wouldn’t want his skin,” Lagerfeld cracked. “Mine looks better than his. He is covered in craters.”

Pretty big words, for a guy who looks like he’s filled with embalming fluid.
