Karl Lagerfeld: ‘Kim Kardashian should not have chosen a hotel with no security’

Veteran designer Karl Lagerfeld can’t believe Kim Kardashian was alone in a Paris hotel suite, surrounded by gems and jewellery, when robbers raided the room.
The reality TV star had just returned from a series of Paris Fashion Week events when thugs dressed as French police officers entered her room, tied Kim up and robbed her at gun point, making off with cellphones and jewellery items the socialite was spotted wearing in social media images she had posted in the days leading up to the attack.
Shaken Kardashian filed a police report on Monday (03Oct16), shortly after the terrifying ordeal, and then headed home to America as celebrity friends and fans chimed in on the drama.
And on Tuesday (04Oct16), Lagerfeld offered his thoughts before Chanel’s fashion show in Paris.
The brand’s creative director told reporters that the 36-year-old should have been much more cautious: “I don’t understand why she was in a hotel with no security and think like this,” he snapped. “If you are that famous and you put all your jewellery on the net, you go to hotels where nobody can come near to the room. You cannot display your wealth and then be surprised that some people want to share it with you.”
His critical comments come a day after he appeared in a photo posted on V Magazine’s Instagram page, holding up a sign that read: “Dearest Kim, We are all with you. Love, Karl.”
Lagerfeld also told reporters on Tuesday he fears the armed robbery will make celebrities think twice about spending time in Paris – the city he calls home.
“Image-wise, I think it is very bad,” he said. “We make all the efforts to make Paris appealing.”
