ANTM Winner Whitney Thompson Takes on Kaiser Karl!

We're watching with delight and trepidation in equal measure the fashion furore brewing for the first plus-size winner of America’s Next Top Model, Whitney Thompson. It seems brave Whitters, who has become a National Eating Disorders ambassador, slammed the mighty Kaiser Karl for being a bit of a hypocrite when it comes to working with fuller figured models. Ouch!

Karl Lagerfeld two years ago was saying the only people who care about plus size are the fat mummies sitting on their couches eating crisps," she rants. "Now he's shooting the plus issue for V, are you kidding? Really V, you forgot about that? I mean, it was a huge issue. And he has a Chanel line for plus girls and Crystal Renn's in it and it's so fake, it's so phony and people just jump on the bandwagon.”

Wow, pretty direct stuff that probably needed to be said, but we’re thinking there won’t be a shiny Chanel contract coming her way any time soon…
