It’s been much too long since we’ve gotten a random feud that is like Valium for the soul, and thankfully Kunty Karl ended the drought by going after Meryl Streep about a couture dress. I’m not sure who I should direct my, “You in danger, girl,” comment at.
Karl told WWD that Meryl’s people reached out to Chanel about an embroidered gray silk gown from their couture collection. Meryl wanted to wear it to the Oscars this year. She ended up ordering the dress and since couture gowns are made-to-order, she asked them to raise the neckline of it. Karl agreed, and he used his exquisite zombie fingers to sketch it up before Chanel’s atelier began making it. Karl claims that the opulent gown was in the middle of being made when Meryl’s people told them to stop making the dress because they found another fashion house who will pay them. That disgusted Karl, more than the sight of women larger than a size 0 and ugly people.
Karl mouth farted out a dusty cloud of disgust over Meryl’s people wanting to be paid for wearing a couture gown. Karl said that Chanel was already giving Meryl the expensive-as-fuck dress and that should be enough. And since this is Kunty Karl I’m writing about, he just had to add a couple of dollops of bitchiness. Karl said that Meryl can keep the gown anyway since it’s her size (read: Size Fat Fat Fatty) and then he caused all of Hollywood to gasp when he called their queen CHEAP!
“After we gift her a dress that’s 100,000 euros [$105,000], we found later we had to pay [for her to wear it]. We give them dresses, we make the dresses, but we don’t pay.
She could keep the dress because of the size. It’s couture. It’s perfect for her. A genius actress, but cheapness also, no?”
Meryl’s team has caused the fashion world to gasp by accusing Karl of lying.
A representative for the actress tells The Hollywood Reporter that the statement is false, and that it is against her personal ethics to be paid to wear a gown on the red carpet.
I don’t know who to believe. Let’s see:
Reasons to believe Kunty Karl – Karl is a Death Eater and everyone knows that you can’t trust a Death Eater! Especially one whose eyeballs can’t be bare in the daylight for more than four seconds or the sun’s rays will melt them. But saying that Meryl wanted to get paid doesn’t seem like the kind of lie that Karl would come up with. Let’s say that Meryl decided to go with a different dress or decided that she didn’t want to wear a gown designed by a vampire who told Americans to learn to deal with Trump. I’m not sure if Karl would get revenge on her by calling her cheap.
I’d think that he’d say that Chanel decided not to make Meryl an Oscar night ensemble, because it just wouldn’t be a good business decision for them. Since Karl probably considers Meryl clinically obese, they’d have to use four times as much fabric and they’d have to make a matching embroidered silk bag to go over her face. That kind of lie is much more on brand for Kunty Karl.
Reasons to believe Meryl – She’s Meryl Streep and I’m pretty sure that calling her a liar is against the law. But then again, Trump may have passed an executive order stating that every citizen must take everything that overrated Meryl Streep says as a giant lie.
I’m at a loss, but hopefully we’ll find out the truth when Ryan Murphy covers this fashion feud between the Queen of the Fashion Vampires and the Queen of Hollywood on season 2 of Feuds!
And here’s the “revamped” Madame Tussauds Meryl Streep wax figure that debuted yesterday at TCL Chinese Theater 6 Lobby. That busted, wonk-eyed wax figure looks like it was hit in the face with a frying pan, but doesn’t care because it’s high as hell. So based on that, I’m guessing that it was “revamped” by none other than Kunty Karl!
