On Tuesday, less than 24 hours after the president’s call for equality, Karl Lagerfeld sent models
Lindsey Wixon and Cara Delevigne Kati Nescher and Ashleigh Good [along with his godson Francois Hollande] down Chanel’s PFW Runway in matching wedding gowns.
It is traditional for Couturiers to complete their show by sending a wedding gown down the catwalk, so Lagerfeld’s gesture was an obvious nod towards marriage equality at a time of large Catholic protests calling for a referendum on the same-sex marriage bill that the French government has promised to its citizens.
When asked about such contention, Lagerfeld suggested:
“People who consider marriage a sacred religious union can continue that tradition in their churches, temples, synagogues and mosques, but all religions should tolerate gay marriage.”
