Quote of the Day: Karl Lagerfeld on Anorexia
"I'm sorry to say that it's a subject I consider ridiculous for several reasons; the story with the anorexic girls - nobody works with anorexic girls, that's nothing to do with fashion. People who have that [anorexia] have problems to do with family and things like that... There are less than 1 per cent of anorexic girls, but there more than 30 per cent of girls in France - I don't know about England - that are much, much overweight. And it is much more dangerous and very bad for the health. So I think today with the junk food in front of the TV it's something dangerous for the health of the girl."
- Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld on an issue in the fashion world that has been addressed by both models and designers in the industry.
