You may have heard Karl Lagerfeld's name a lot around the webosphere ( I just made that word up haha) all this week. Well, the not-so-nice attention sparked from an interview the Creative Director of Chanel and Fendi did Monday with Metro World News. When asked about  pop singer Lana Del Rey he responded:
 “I prefer Adele and Florence Welch. But, as a modern singer, she is not bad. The thing at the moment is Adele. She is a little too fat, but she has a beautiful face and a divine voice. Lana del Rey is not bad at all. She looks very much like a modern-time singer. In her photos, she is beautiful. Is she a construct with all her implants? She’s not alone with implants.”

Do you guys remember that saying, "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all'? Yeah. I think he missed that day in Kindergarten class haha. What upsets me the most about all this, is that Lagerfeld himself struggled with weight issues and with that being said, shouldn't he be the last person to tear someone down about weight?

After much negative attention from the media and Adele fans worldwide, Lagerfeld has issued a statement in another Metro World News paper:
"I'd like to say to Adele that I am your biggest admirer. Sometimes when you take a sentence out of the article it changes the meaning of the thought. What I said was in relation to Lana Del Rey and the sentence has since been taken out of context from how it was originally published. I actually prefer Adele, she is my favorite singer and I am a great admirer of her. I lost over 30 kilos over 10 years ago and have kept it off. I know how it feels when the press is mean to you in regards to your appearance. Adele is a beautiful girl. She is the best. And I can't wait for her next CD."

Okay, that's nice... But what about you calling her fat?

Check out this video from E! News with Adele's feelings about her body. I love Adele and that she represents curvy & beautiful women as the norm. It doesn't matter how anyone feels about you. The only opinion that truly counts is your own!

Happy Hump Day! I've been meaning to do this post for a few weeks now about a lipstick that I absolutely ADORE. It's from CoverGirl's Lip Perfection lipstick line and the color is called 'Embrace'. It's a deep purple hue with a blue undertone which in my opinion really sets the color off. I've never seen a color quite like this one before and I'm truly addicted.

I first found out about this lipstick while on YouTube one day. You go on that website for one thing and in what feels like 5 minutes, you look up and not only have two hours passed but you now have a notepad with an endless list of products you need. Well on an impromtu visit to Target with a friend, I found the color that was on my wishlist! Super excited, I couldn't even wait until I got home to try it on. I put it on in the car mirror on my way to the movies and we've been having a love affair ever since... My other lip colors are totally jealous haha.

It lasts ALL day, if anything you'll have to scrub your lips to get it off! But I really don't mind at all, that's just another excuse for me to wear it the next day haha. It goes on smooth, and the quality is serious competition for even my YSL lipstick. You haven't heard the best part yet, the price! Only $5.49. Yes, it's true. So what are you waiting for? Go get one!

Make sure you check out the other colors in the Lip Perfection line!
