Karl Lagerfeld needs no introduction. He is renowned in fashion. However, he is also known for making curious statements, some peculiar, some downright offensive. Here are a few:
1. "Adele is another problem ... I never said that she was fat. I said that she was a little roundish; a little roundish is not fat. But for such a beautiful girl, after that she lost eight kilos [17.6 pounds] so I think the message was not that bad." 2. Pippa Middleton should "only ever show her back" ... "I think that her sister looks better."
3. "There is no marriage, yet, for human beings and animals ... I never thought that I would fall in love like this with a cat."

Here are our top looks from the night, accompanied by a D&Me alternative:

Back in March, French Vogue came out with an issue centred around special guest Mario Testino's homeland - Peru.
The photographer has now collaborated with Net-a-Porter to create a collection based on his native country.

As May leaves us into the hopes of summer, we look back upon our favourite items here at D&ME via our Instagram photos.
We've been loving Diane Kordas rings, R&Y Augousti clutches (apparently so have you, these have been selling out fast), and all sorts of wacky, statement accessories in general. Of course, there is also Alexander McQueen.
