Designer Karl Lagerfeld, who apologized in March after public outcry for calling singer Adele "too fat," now seems to be trying to stir up some sibling rivalry between the Middleton sisters. According to The Sun, the 78-year-old recently said of Kate, "I like that kind of woman, I like romantic beauties." As for his opinion of Pippa? "On the other hand," he reportedly quipped. "Her sister struggles."

Lagerfeld went on to say, "I don't like her sister's face. She should only show her back." Pippa's toned posterior made world headlines during the royal wedding on April 29, 2011.

Readers of The Sun shot back.

"Talk about stones and glass houses," wrote paul_the_beat-all, "He is so ugly the Elephant Man would have paid to see him."

Another reader, fx448 asked, "Who's the beauty? Who's the beast?"

"Try spreading kind words, not misery," suggested gooner1974.

Lagerfeld, who was in London publicizing his pop-up store of Olympic-inspired clothing and accesories at the upscale department store Selfridges, was more complimentary about former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham. He said the two had the "same eating habits." The designer lost about 90 pounds in 2001. "And that body, after four children," he continued. "There are not so many who have a body like that. She is very disciplined."
