Karl Lagerfeld Still Attacking Tina Brown

Karl Lagerfeld is attacking Tina Brown again. In February, Lagerfeld reacted to a Newsweek article that depicted him as overrated by criticizing Brown and the magazine, and now WWD is reporting that Lagerfeld hasn’t forgotten about the piece. Lagerfeld told reporters during a press conference that Newsweek “is not doing well at all,” and that Brown “is dying.”

Then Lagerfeld delved deeper. ”I’m sorry for Tina Brown, who was such a success at ‘Vanity Fair,’ to go down with a shitty little paper like this. I’m sorry.”

And we’re all sorry that Lagerfeld is so riled up about this. Perhaps, to paraphrase Shakespeare, Lagerfeld doth protest too much?
