Karl Lagerfield doesn’t seem to have an ounce of sympathy for Kim Kardashian after she was robbed at gunpoint of nearly $10 million in jewels at her Paris hotel. In fact, the Chanel creative believes she brought it on herself after flashing her ginormous 20-carat ring on Snapchat just hours before the heist.

“It’s a very bad thing for Paris,” Lagerfeld told Reuters. “I don’t understand why she was in a hotel with no security … If you are that famous and you put all your jewelry on [social media], you go to hotels where nobody can come near to the room.”

Kardashian was staying at the exclusive Hotel de Pourtalès, a boutique hotel popular with celebrities visiting Paris, despite its minimal security. According to reports, her personal bodyguard was out clubbing with her sisters when the five masked men bound and gagged her before making off with her jewelry.

Added the fashion icon, who also sent Kardashian a personal note to see if she was OK, “You cannot display your wealth and then be surprised that some people want to share it with you.”

Lagerfeld, who himself lives pretty lavishly, isn’t known for having much of a filter. But do you think he was right, or was he being too harsh on Kim?

Lupita Nyong’o Slams Magazine For Editing Out Her Kinks & Coils

When will these magazines learn…

Lupita Nyong’o just checked Grazia UK for brazenly altering her hair to remove any trace of kink, coil or wave. The magazine had invited the stunning actress to grace the cover of their November issue, but when the photo hit the ‘net there was one thing missing … Nyong’o’s natural ponytail.

In a lengthy IG post, Lupita let’s them have it, stating in part, “Being featured on the cover of a magazine fulfills me as it is an opportunity to show other dark, kinky-haired people, and particularly our children, that they are beautiful just the way they are. I am disappointed that @graziauk invited me to be on their cover and then edited out and smoothed my hair to fit their notion of what beautiful hair looks like.”

Read the full post below:

As I have made clear so often in the past with every fiber of my being, I embrace my natural heritage and despite having grown up thinking light skin and straight, silky hair were the standards of beauty, I now know that my dark skin and kinky, coily hair are beautiful too. Being featured on the cover of a magazine fulfills me as it is an opportunity to show other dark, kinky-haired people, and particularly our children, that they are beautiful just the way they are. I am disappointed that @graziauk invited me to be on their cover and then edited out and smoothed my hair to fit their notion of what beautiful hair looks like. Had I been consulted, I would have explained that I cannot support or condone the omission of what is my native heritage with the intention that they appreciate that there is still a very long way to go to combat the unconscious prejudice against black women’s complexion, hair style and texture.

For their part, Grazia apologized, essentially blaming the photographer.
