Pippa Middleton's looks were slammed today by Chanel's Karl Lagerfeld in an interview with The Sun. The enigmatic fashion designer apparently isn't very impressed by Kate Middleton's younger sister.

"I don't like the sister's face. She should only show her back," said Lagerfeld, 78.

Lagerfeld did, however, have something nice to say about the Duchess of Cambridge.

"Kate Middleton has a nice silhouette and she is the right girl for [Prince William]," he said. "I like that kind of woman, I like romantic beauties. On the other hand, her sister struggles."

This isn't Lagerfeld's first time insulting other celebrity's appearances. He made headlines in the past for calling British singer Adele "too fat."

Of course, in the era of anonymous commenters, not even Karl Lagerfeld is impervious to insults. One commenter on the Sun's website went after the fashion designer's aging looks.

"Has he looked at himself in a mirror recently? Every time I see this ugly old guy I think about a silent Dracula movie," wrote a user calling themselves xms. "This is the second lady this old man has insulted. He didn't have anything nice to say about the singer Adele's looks either. In my opinion both Pippa and Adele are lovely looking women."

A different commenter calling themselves kwwaku admitted to agreeing with Lagerfeld, but didn't think the comment was appropriate for a public interview.

"Pippa is below par when it comes to beauty and she knows that," kwwaku wrote. "But Lagerfeld SHUT YOUR STINKING MOUTH."

A third Sun commenter, paul_the_beat-all agreed.

"Talk about stones and glass houses. He is so ugly the Elephant Man would have paid to see him," the apparent Beatles fan wrote.

Lagerfeld is one of the fashion world's most eccentric characters, and is known for obsessing over his cat, Choupette Lagerfeld, who is card for by two maids and owns its own iPod.

Choupette even has a personal Twitter account. The Twitter account includes the following profile description:

"I'm a famous beauty who refuses to eat on the floor & my maids pamper my every need. I am Choupette Lagerfeld and I am a spoiled pussy."

Of course, Choupette was on the scene (on Twitter) to defend her dad with and clarify his statement with a tweet of her own.

"Silly Daddy, Pippa's face isn't THAT bad. Although I am secretly jealous of her backside," wrote the respected Chanel fashion designer's cat on the popular social media platform.
