London: Karl Lagerfeld, who has already said that he doesn’t like Pippa Middleton’s face, suggesting that the Duchess of Cambridge’ sister should only show off her famous derriere, seems to have quite the penchant for the sister’s mother Carole.

The 79-year-old Chanel designer has even gone so far as to call the Middleton matriarch ‘sexy’.

“I think Carole is very sexy,” the Daily mail quoted Lagerfeld as telling Grazia UK.

“I think the mother is sexier than the daughters,” he said.

Lagerfeld thinks that the 57-year-old The Party Pieces co-owner, who has three children with her husband Michael, including Kate, Pippa and their brother James, is “full of life”.

“There is something full of life about her,” he said.

“For a woman who must be 50 or so I think she’s great. Full of energy,” he added.
