Fashion icon Karl Lagerfeld has taken an extremely unpopular stance on Kim Kardashian on Tuesday, a day after the reality television star was robbed at gunpoint in Paris of 10 million dollar’s worth of jewelry. "You cannot display your wealth and then be surprised that some people want to share it with you," the designer told reporters after his Spring/Summer 2017 Chanel show in Paris.
Lagerfeld had written Kardashian a note on Monday saying: "Dearest Kim, we are all with you," after she was tied up and robbed at a luxury apartment in Paris. But he criticized the celebrity for flaunting her wealth to her more than 100 million social media followers. "If you're that famous and you put all your jewelry on the net, you go to hotels where nobody can come near to the room," he said.
Kardashian tweeted a picture last week of a diamond ring worth around four million euros ($4.5 million) which police said had been stolen in the early morning raid along with five million euros worth of other jewelry. "I think it's a very bad thing for Paris but I don't understand why she was in a hotel with no security," Lagerfeld said of the robbery, which made headlines across the world.
The multi-millionaire mother of two was in Paris for the Spring/Summer 2017 shows, where she was a front row guest at Balenciaga and Givenchy on Sunday.
