The czar of high fashion has spoken - and he says Michelle Obama's bangs were "a bad idea."

Karl Lagerfeld appeared on French TV show Le Petit Journal to discuss Paris Fashion Week, but the conversation turned into commentary on Michelle Obama's bangs.

The creative director of Chanel, Fendi and his own eponymous line said, "I don’t understand the change of hair...Frankly, the fringe was a bad idea. It’s not good." He also added that she looked like an anchor.

Lagerfeld, who's no stranger to criticizing celebrities on their physical appearances, has previously made some questionable statements regarding Pippa Middleton's face and Adele's body.
